College Football Viewing Guide: Week 12

New, 17 comments

The Big 12 and Big Ten have a load of great matchups on tap Saturday. The SEC and ACC? I guess you could technically call what they're doing football.

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Week 12 is a feast or famine week for college football. At one side of the spectrum you've got Ohio State-Michigan State, Baylor-Oklahoma State, and Oklahoma-TCU. Injured quarterbacks aside, those are three pretty solid conference matchups. Then, all the way on the other side of the solar system, you've got Clemson-Wake Forest, Houston-UConn, and a host of 11th-game matchups that pit top 25 teams against FCS programs. That makes this week's viewing schedule a bit of a minefield, but there should be enough good football to keep you sedentary throughout a snow-filled (in Wisconsin, at least) Saturday.

Best Game: No. 10 Baylor at No. 6 Oklahoma State. There's no doubt in my mind that Baylor finds a way to win this one and throws the Big 12 into a state of chaos, which is what's best for America. No. 24 USC at No. 23 Oregon will also be an extremely fun battle whose tendrils won't extend beyond the Pac-12 South in terms of overall impact. Just drink and enjoy.

Worst Game: Duke at Virginia. The Blue Devils have been in a death spiral since losing to Miami in a game that was in no way notable or spoken of after the final whistle had blown. Virginia, on the other hand, started their death spiral back in 2011.
