The college football season is coming down to the wire with a ton of important games getting ready to be played in the 11th week of the year.

However, the ultimate concern around the nation is the coronavirus pandemic, which is still affecting several schools; eight games have been postponed and two others canceled.

No. 1 Alabama, No. 3 Ohio State, No. 5 Texas A&M, No. 12 Georgia and No. 24 Auburn are the Top 25 teams that were scheduled to play this week, but players and coaches contracting the virus forced the games to be altered.

Coronavirus is still a major concern especially as it gets colder outside and with no vaccine coming before the season is over.

Nonetheless, there is still a big slate of Top 25 games to be played.

Read below for a brief look at what’s to come between Friday and Saturday.
