These group of five games include teams in which the level of competition is stepped up a notch or two. Teams involved in the LEGENDS tier include programs near the top of the Big Ten or involving teams from other conferences that are nationally known. They also include an FCS team that is rising quickly and can hang with a few of these FBS teams out there.

And it’s not just the team’s involved that make up this tier. These five games in my opinion are one’s you’re going to want to pay attention to and not reach for the remote. These are five games that I think will grab a lot of people’s attention and keep them glued to the TV during Labor Day weekend. Compared to the LEADERS, this group of LEGENDS games should be thrilling and won’t make you channel surf right through them.
