Five things to watch this week in college football:
1. Louisiana State visits Alabama in one of those "game-of-the-century" moments that remind people why college football's regular season is so special. The winner has a fast track to the national title while the loser will no doubt be pining for a rematch.
2. Go tell it on the mountain. A week after its thrilling, prime-time Saturday overtime loss, USC plays a rare Friday night game in Boulder against a Colorado team that has struggled all season with altitude sickness. Remember, skiers, to keep your tips up.
3. Not so fast. Before Oregon plays at Stanford on Nov. 12 in the Pacific 12 Conference's version of LSU-Alabama, the Ducks face a dangerous test at much-improved Washington. Fast fact: Oregon and Washington might hate each other more than their traditional in-state rivals.
