NCAA conference champions will be crowned on Saturday in the Big Ten, ACC, American Athletic, Mountain West, Big 12, and SEC. At least two of these matchups have College Football Playoff ramifications. If can Oklahoma avenge their 48-45 loss to Texas earlier this year, the Sooners will most likely get the nod over Ohio State for the fourth slot--provided Georgia does not beat Alabama. If the Bulldogs do upset the Crimson Tide, they're in. A Red Wing Over/Under and Michigan's Big Ten opener vs Purdue are also in the First Game mix.
The Second Game features several NFL powerhouses. The Vikings visit the Patriots, the Chargers take on the Steelers, and the Redskins are in Philadelphia to face the Eagles who need a win to stay alive in the NFC East. Mid-week has NBA and NHL action before the Jags play the Titans on Thursday Night Football.
