The FBS G5 game of the week pits two American Association Conference teams playing in each other’s conference opener this week with two top 5 CSJ Sagarin Top 25 ranked facing each other with Memphis visiting Central Florida.
But this game is not the only game pitting two Top 25 ranked teams in our poll. Five other such games also will take place this week. The other games are #2 Houston plays at #25 Temple, #13 Northern Illinois at #4 San Diego State, #7 Navy at #18 Tulsa, and #15 BYU at #24 Utah State (Friday).
No Power 5 match-ups involve any of the Top 25 teams as we are starting to get into conference play.
Regardless, It should be another fun weekend and entertaining to see how these games play out as we race towards which Group of Five school will get the New Year’s Six Bowl bid.
