Here we go, folks. With four earnest weeks to go in the college fantasy football season, it's time to buckle your seatbelt and get ready for CFF overdrive. There is very little margin for error.  Every game matters.Oh yes, to fantasy geeks, Saturday will be about a whole lot more than just Oregon-USC and Alabama-LSU.  Here's what we'll be watching...12:00pm ETTexas A&M at Mississippi StateDangerous spot here for Johhny Manziel owners. Can he put up his typically ridiculous numbers on the road against a surprisingly stingy Bulldog defense?Michigan at MinnesotaDenard Robinson owners across the country will be crossing their fingers that their star fantasy QB is close to 100 percent after last week's elbow injury. The matchup is tasty, but relying on Shoelace under these circumstances could be a risky proposition.Houston at East CarolinaIf this was 2010, we'd be looking at a 45-42 type score in this one.  Times have changed and both offenses aren't nearly as potent.  The games best fantasy prospect, Houston RB Charles Sims, was banged up last week, but is expected to start.  Miami (OH) at BuffaloThis one features two MAC stars who appear to be back on track after suffering injuries earlier in the year.  Redhawk WR Nick Harwell will be gunning for his third 100-yard receiving game in a row, while Bulls RB Branden Oliver will be looking for his second 100-yard rushing effort in as many weeks.Troy at TennesseeThe Vols passing game has been pathetic of late. To the rescue comes a Sun Belt team ready to be pounded. This is as good a week as any for Tyler Bray and Justin Hunter to get it rolling again.2:00pm ETStanford at ColoradoIf you've got a Cardinal on your roster, now would be a good time to plug them into your starting lineup.Memphis at MarshallThis is a matchup to die for if you're a Rakeem Cato owner. After a rough week vs. UCF, look for the Thundering Herd to rebound by passing all over the Tigers.TCU at West VirginiaWow, it's amazing how quickly the Mountaineers have fallen completely off the college football map.  They've had a bye week to lick their wounds, and now get a tough-to-figure-out TCU squad.3:30pm ETBoston College at Wake ForestThis one pits two of the most underrated wide receivers in the land: Alex Amidon vs. Michael Campanaro.Kansas at BaylorKU RB James Sims should have a field day against a terrible Bears defense. That is, if his team isn't down 40 by halftime.UMass at Northern IllinoisThe poor Minutemen stand little chance of slowing down a scorching hot Jordan Lynch.7:00pm ET Oregon at USCThe Ducks are getting very little respect in the computer polls. This is bad news for the Trojans. If the Ducks smell any blood in this one, they will put their foot on the pedal and run it up.Clemson at DukeDuke is coming off a drubbing at the hands of FSU. Clemson is coming off a blowout win over Wake.  This does not bode well for the Dookies.Hawaii at Fresno StateRobbie Rouse, Derek Carr and company should make their fantasy owners happy against the Warriors.8:00pm ETAlabama vs. LSUA game with huge national national title implications, but unless you have the Bama defense or maybe one of the field goal kickers, there isn't much fantasy impact in this one. Oklahoma State at Kansas StateNow here's a game with both national title implications AND fantasy value.  Collin Klein, Joseph Randle and Wes Lunt will be in the spotlight.10:30pm ETArizona at UCLAInteresting nightcap with some fantasy punch. Matt Scott and Austin Hill ripped apart USC last week. Can they keep it going? Brett Hundley and Johnathan Franklin should be able to shred the Swiss Cheese Wildcat defense.
