Week 4 is a huge week for college football.

Better get an early lunch Saturday because No. 11 Michigan visits No. 13 Wisconsin at noon on Fox. Michigan has been less than impressive its first two games. Jim Harbaugh’s club needed overtime to beat Army. Meanwhile, Wisconsin rolled over South Florida and Central Michigan.

Then at 3:30, No. 8 Auburn visits No. 17 Texas A&M in the first game of a CBS day/night doubleheader. The Tigers are 3-0, including a win over Oregon. The host Aggies are 2-1, with the lone loss coming at No. 1 Clemson 24-10 two weeks back.

The 8 p.m. nightcap is the big one with No. 7 Notre Dame playing No. 3 Georgia at Sanford Stadium in Athens. CBS has the broadcast. The Irish are 2-0 with a road win at Louisville and a home rout of New Mexico. Georgia is 3-0 with a win at Vanderbilt and home thumpings of Murray State and Arkansas State.
