With few ranked-on-ranked contests and minimal rivalry action, we're left anticipating upsets. And with so many big games on the horizon, somebody's sure to get caught lookin'. Here's the Week 12 college football schedule.
This week's college football schedule might just be the least-anticipated of the whole year. There are big games (No. 13 Kansas State vs. No. 10 Texas, No. 16 Nebraska vs. No. 18 Michigan, No. 5 Oklahoma vs. No. 22 Baylor), and there are rivalries (Cal vs. No. 9 Stanford, Arizona vs. Arizona State), but the story of the week will be which heavy gets knocked off.
With this many big point spreads ahead of headliner contests down the road, it's bound to happen. Maybe not a top 10 team, but maybe so. No. 6 Arkansas vs. Mississippi State? No. 11 Houston vs. SMU? No. 7 Clemson vs. N.C. State? No. 4 Oregon vs. USC? Probably not No. 3 Alabama vs. FCS No. 3 Georgia Southern, no matter how convincingly Nick Saban fretted about this game at SEC Media Days.
