College Football Viewing Guide: Week 13

New, 6 comments

Only two top 25 showdowns shade the college football landscape this weekend. None involve the SEC, where half of the league's games involve FCS opponents.

The SEC has a bit of a down week as Thanksgiving draws close. Four of the league's eight games will pair powerhouse schools against I-AA competition. Another, South Alabama and South Carolina, involves a team that didn't exist in 2008. The #4 team in the country, Mississippi State, will get the #105 team in the country, Vanderbilt. That leaves either Missouri/Tennessee or Ole Miss/Arkansas as the conference's best showdowns.

Beyond that, there are only two games that pit top 25 programs this Saturday, so you'll be excused if this is the weekend you decide to hang up those Christmas lights. Here's what you can look forward to this week.

Best Game: #19 USC at #9 UCLA. The battle for Los Angeles continues. This time without poorly CGI'ed aliens.

Worst Game: Kent State at Buffalo. The northern New York rapture canceled this game and stripped Buffalo of both their Senior Day and a moderately decent chance at a six-win season. That's some horseshit, nature.
