Tomorrow is like Christmas for college football fans across the country. After all the talk and debate, the entire college football landscape will be decided with just a handful of games.
All the action will start at 12:30 when #3 Oklahoma takes on #11 TCU in the Big 12 title game. the chaos could start early on in the day if the Sooners unexpectedly lose to the Horned Frogs. There is already speculation that an Oklahoma loss could lead to an Alabama gain with the Crimson Tide sitting on the outside looking in at #5. TCU is a 7 point underdog in this game and could very well pull off the upset, which would certainly make these next games coming up even more intriguing.
Four o’ clock will bring us the answer to the SEC question when #2 Auburn faces off against #6 Georgia in the conference title game. This one is a rematch of a few weeks ago when Auburn crushed the then number 1 Bulldogs. Now with the roles reversed, could the dogs measure an act of revenge? Auburn comes into this game as a slight favorite at -1.5 and if they can come out on top in this game, they will become the first 2-loss team to make the playoff. This game is one of two de facto quarterfinal games with a win and your in scenario.
The other game of such magnitude will take place at 8pm when the #7 Miami Hurricanes battle against the number 1 team in the country, Clemson Tigers, for the ACC title game. This match up has been widely considered to be a win and your in scenario for both teams all week. For Clemson of course that is easy, they are #1, but for Miami at #7, they would become the first team in the playoff era to make a jump that big into the final 4 standings. The Canes come into this game as a 9 point underdog and would love nothing more than to pull the upset and prove all the doubters wrong. Along with winning their first ever ACC title.
Also at 8pm will be the final deciding game in this crazy season. #8 Ohio St. will fight for the Big 10 title against #4 and undefeated Wisconsin. Even with that being said, the Badgers come into this game as a 6 point underdog. The big argument here is what would happen if the Buckeyes beat an undefeated Wisconsin team and win the Big 10, even with two losses do they deserve to make it in?
There is so much to still be decided with seemingly countless scenarios, but it’s all happening tomorrow. Finally.
