Games Noon
Missouri vs. Auburn
SEC Championship Game
Marc Says: Both teams come into this game coming off big wins this past Saturday and both teams are still clinging to some hope in the BCS national championship race as a win here combined with a loss by either Ohio State or Florida State would likely be enough to make it. Auburn has faced the overall more challenging conference schedule so far but can it keep pulling out victories in the same fashion that we've seen the last two weeks? Last week all of the pressure was on Alabama but this week the focus shifts to Auburn where there is still talk of a possible NC berth if they win, regardless of the outcome of other games. I think it will be difficult for Auburn to get back up so quickly after that emotional finish last week and I think Missouri wins a close one. Missouri 31 Auburn 24
Stanford vs. Arizona St.
Pac 12 Championship Game
Patrick Says: I'm not really sure how I feel about this game, but I think it's hard to pick against Stanford. Yes, the Cardinal have looked really average at times this season in losses to Utah and USC. At the same time, of course, they beat Orgeon. Which Stanford team do we see against Arizona State? Who knows. But I'll take David Shaw's crew over the Sun Devils. After Oregon decided to throw away its season, they might be the best team in the Pac 12 and they'll show that Saturday night. Stanford 31 Arizona State 24
Duke vs. Florida St.
ACC Championship Game
Andrew Says: Do I really need to say much here? Congratulations to the Duke football team for having one of its best seasons of all time. Winning 10 games at a basketball school is an accomplishment to be proud of. But Saturday's outcome will not be something Duke will want to boast about. Florida State has done whatever its wanted against nearly every opponent its played this season. Saturday won't be different. Florida State 52 Duke 21
Louisville vs. Cincinnati
AndyMac Says: The start to 2013 wasn't ideal for Cincinnati. They dropped two of their first five against bad teams (Illinois & South Florida) plus starting quarterback Munchie Legaux suffered a season-ending injury in week two. Thanks to a favorable schedule, the Bearcats enter Thursday night with a six-game winning streak and a shot at a share of the AAC crown. During the last six games, Brendon Kay has 2,0001 passing yards, 15 touchdown passes and five interceptions. In the same frame, Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater has 1,706 passing yards, nine touchdowns and two picks. Cincinnati is also 5-0 in Nippert Stadium and have won 17 of the last 19 there. Cincinnati 37 Louisville 35
Bowling Green vs. No. IllinoisMAC Championship Game
Noon Says: I fully expected Northern Illinois to be here behind Jordan Lynch but am surprised that Bowling Green made it to Detroit for the MAC title game. We have not had has much "MAC-tion" this year as in years past but it has been NIU and Lynch that have carried the conference colors and now with Fresno State being out of the ranks of the unbeaten it is on the Huskies to be the "little guy" who ruins the BCS party. The Pac-12 and Big 12 will both be big BG fans but Lynch is just too good and NIU will get back into the BCS. Northern Illinois 38 Bowling Green 30
Texas vs. Baylor
Tom Says: Mack Brown and his Texas Longhorns travel to Waco on Saturday to battle the high flying Baylor Bears, led by QB Bryce Petty. While the Longhorns have rebounded after losses to BYU and Ole Miss, they are not the caliber of the 20013 Baylor team. Given that the game is being played in Waco and the rumors around Mack Brown losing his job and possible Nick Saban sightings, the longhorns most likely won't be as focused as they need to be. The Longhorns should normally be focused on winning the Big 12 title. QB Case McCoy and RB Malcom Brown will give the Bears a good challenge, but ultimately Baylor will outscore Texas with their fast paced offense with great balance between the run and pass. Baylor 42 Texas 24
Utah St. vs. Fresno St.
MWC Championship Game
Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma St.
Bedlam Game
Central Florida vs. SMU
Army vs. Navy
