This week’s Conference Championships:
Big 12 - Texas vs. Oklahoma - 11 CDT
For the first time in history, Texas and Oklahoma meet twice at a neutral site in the same season. A win for Oklahoma would likely mean a Top 4 spot, and nobody would love to spoil that more than their fiercest rival in the Texas Longhorns.
SEC - Georgia vs. Alabama - 3 CDT
Can Georgia get revenge in last year’s title game rematch? Not only would they be able to reclaim bragging rights with a win, but a spot in the Top 4 as well.
AAC - Memphis vs. UCF - 3:30 CDT
Undefeated UCF looks to make it 25 consecutive wins with redshirt freshman Darriel Mack starting for an injured McKenzie Milton. It’s a rematch of last year’s championship where UCF won in overtime. Memphis has been the team to give UCF the most trouble during their win streak, losing closely in their last two meetings.
Mountain West - Fresno State vs. Boise State - 6:45 CDT
If UCF were to slip up against Memphis, the winner of this game will head to a New Year’s Six game. Very high stakes between two teams that have flown under the national radar this season.
ACC - Pittsburgh vs. Clemson - 7 CDT
Clemson looks to go into bowl season with an undefeated record. The only thing standing in between them and a national semifinal is a Pittsburgh team that gave Notre Dame major fits earlier this season.
Big Ten - Northwestern vs. Ohio State - 7 CDT
Ohio State has an outside shot at a playoff spot, but all playoff hopes would come crashing down with a loss to Northwestern at the Big Ten title game. Can Northwestern play spoiler and pull off the upset?
