The College Football season is only 25 days away as Oregon State will face Colorado State on Saturday, August 26 at 2:30 ET to kick off another year of football action.

So what are the must-watch games in college football this season?

Sporting News released their must-watch games of 2017 on Tuesday and two Clemson contests in Death Valley were chosen in the top 7 marquee matchups.

The No. 7 on the list of great games is Auburn at Clemson on Sept. 9.

"Now, Auburn finally has a clear No. 1 quarterback in Jarrett Stidham and two proven playmakers at running back with Kamryn Pettway and Kerryon Johnson," Sporting News said. Clemson’s D-line, of course, will likely be the best in college football and returns players who produced 24.5 of 49 sacks last season. It all points to another great matchup."

The No. 2 regular season game according to Sporting News will be Florida State at Clemson on Nov. 11.

"FSU’s Deondre Francois struggled last year against Clemson’s defense, so expect him to come in with a chip on his shoulder," Sporting News said. "Clemson won't be willing to relinquish their hold on the ACC, either. The loser takes a back seat in the race for the ACC Atlantic Division title — which, in recent years, has pretty much been a ticket to the playoff."

The top game of the 2017 regular season was declared Alabama vs. Florida State in Atlanta on Sept. 2.
