HOW TO WATCH WEEK 12 OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Mike Shara

Other than a few relatively mild upsets in the SEC, most of what happened in college football’s Week 11 schedule was pretty predictable. The favorites all generally won outright, and most of them covered the spread – even Alabama, who were favored by over 50 points vs. New Mexico State and still safely covered the spread. Georgia and Ohio State were both favored by nearly 20 points and covered, Wisconsin by around 25 and covered and though Cincinnati still won handily, they didn’t quite cover their nearly 25-point spread. Look for that fact as one of the weak excuses that will give the CFB Playoff Committee all the ammunition they need to screw the currently unbeaten Bearcats over when they announce which teams will make the Final Four.

This week has at least a few games that will create a stir of interest among bettors. Can #7 Michigan State save any chance at a CFB playoff game appearance with a road win vs. #4 Ohio State? Can Oregon continue to solidify their place in the top four with a road win vs. #24 Utah? Does #25 Arkansas have any chance to redeem their up-and-down season with an upset win in Tuscaloosa vs. the big bullies from Alabama? And could there be a record point spread in Vegas (if one even gets posted) as the Charleston Southern Buccaneers travel to Athens, Georgia to face the nation’s number one team? Finally, how is unranked Clemson still a 4.5-point favorite against a Wake Forest team that has only lost once this season? I know they beat up on Connecticut at home last weekend, but…it was Connecticut. In football.

The listings below feature every team currently ranked in the AP Top 25. This week, three teams (Arkansas, San Diego State and Utah) joined the top 25 while Auburn, Coastal Carolina and Penn State fell off of the list so if you’re a fan of those three schools and want to find their games on TV you’ll have to dig around a little more as punishment.

All games are listed at EST. Consult your local listings.
