We break down Saturday's college football schedule, and provide an open thread for discussion
College football is fast approaching bowl season, which means the opportunity to scout teams in person is quickly coming to a close. Today will probably be a heavily attended Saturday of football as conference championship games highlight the schedule.
The schedule opens with TCU hosting No. 11 Oklahoma at 9am PT. The Sooners have a chance to claim the Big 12 with a win and a Kansas State loss. The No. 6 Wildcats are hosting No. 18 Texas at 5pm PT. According to Chris Steuber, the 49ers will have scouts at TCU-Oklahoma.
The big game of the day is at 1pm PT, as No. 2 Alabama faces No. 3 Georgia in the SEC Championship Game. The winner of the game will face off with Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship Game.
At 5:17pm, the Big Ten Championship Game kicks off between No. 17 Nebraska and Wisconsin. The winner of this game will go to the Rose Bowl, where they will face the No. 8 Stanford Cardinal. Stanford edged out No. 16 UCLA in the Pac-12 Championship Game. I would have had an open thread for that last night, but I didn't realize it was going down last night until I was at a bar last night and someone requested it for a little later in the night.
