This week’s high-profile match-ups:
6 Michigan @ 24 Michigan State - 11 CDT - FOX
After last week’s big win against Wisconsin, the Wolverines are climbing up the rankings. But they face a difficult test today against a big rival located in East Lansing. A loss today could end Michigan’s playoff hopes, and Michigan State would like nothing more than to dismantle their biggest rival.
16 NC State @ 3 Clemson - 2:30 CDT - ESPN
In the only game this weekend that features two unbeaten teams, North Carolina State is looking to upset the Tigers and put a major dent in Clemson’s title hopes. A win for the Wolfpack could vault them into the Top 10, a place the team has not seen since 2002.
22 Mississippi State @ 5 LSU - 6:00 CDT - ESPN
After a slip-up against Florida, LSU finds themselves back in the Top 5 after defeating Georgia last week. With one week before their big game against Alabama, the Tigers cannot afford a loss heading into their biggest battle of the season.
12 Oregon @ 25 Washington State - 6:30 CDT - FOX
In this Pac-12 showdown, Oregon is looking to keep their faint playoff hopes alive with a chance at another Top 25 victory. In their way is a Washington State team that plays better than their ranking shows.
