Week 4 of the college football season is here, and that means another Saturday of non-stop action.

Like most weekends in the fall, there is no shortage of games to choose from. But even though it is still early in the season, we already have a sense of which teams are in the playoff hunt and which games are the most important.

This week we have five ranked teams on the road and two head-t0-head matchups of Top-25 teams. All the games have playoff implications.

Here are the can’t-miss college football games to watch this weekend.

(2) Georgia @ Missouri

Network and Time: ESPN, 12:00 p.m. ET

Records: Both teams are 3-0

CFB Playoff Power Rankings: Georgia (2)

Why it is important: Georgia looked to be on Alabama’s level until the Tide went into Oxford and laid 62 points on a good Ole Miss team. Meanwhile, you always worry at this time of year when a highly ranked team goes on the road against a decent opponent. Sometimes the Madden computer decides today is not your day no matter how good you are.

(8) Notre Dame @ Wake Forest

Network and Time: ABC, 12:00 p.m. ET

Records: Notre Dame (3-0), Wake Forest (2-1)

CFB Playoff Power Rankings: Notre Dame (8)

Why it is important: The Irish are in danger of starting the season 4-0 and losing respect among those who matter. This is the second-straight week where Notre Dame needs not only a win but a convincing win. Inferior opponents have given them too much trouble early on.

(22) Texas A&M @ (1) Alabama

Network and Time: CBS, 3:30 p.m. ET

Records: Texas A&M (2-1), Alabama (3-0)

CFB Playoff Power Rankings: Texas A&M (20), Alabama (1)

Why it is important: Keep in mind, A&M gave Clemson a tough game already this season. Of course, that wasn’t Alabama, and it wasn’t on the road. Still, Jimbo Fisher is a former Nick Saban assistant, and eventually one of those apples is going take down the tree.
