Early shift

Best option: No. 10 Baylor at No. 16 Oklahoma

Spread: Oklahoma -5.5
Read: Our Daily BearsCrimson and Cream Machine

Oklahoma's out of the Big 12 race until further notice at 3-2, but that doesn't mean the Sooners can't drag some other teams out along the way. Baylor comes to Norman protecting its Big 12 hopes (to say nothing of its Playoff viability). Oklahoma's got the talent on both sides of the ball to give Baylor a serious scare, and this might well be a race to 40 points.

Plan B: No. 17 Georgia at Kentucky

The sheen's off Kentucky, which dropped three straight after a 5-1 start, and it's possible the Wildcats never make it to bowl eligibility with a rough schedule down the stretch. Then again, there's no telling which Georgia squad will show up, especially in the aftermath of a walloping from Florida. The Dawgs need a win to keep their slim SEC East hopes alive — and, really, to keep the wheels from falling off.

Keep it in mind: Presbyterian at No. 12 Ole Miss

We're a little hesitant to recommend anyone watch this game, on account of the probability that you'll see Laquon Treadwell's injury on a replay, but it'll be nice to see the erstwhile Playoff contenders put the wind back in their sails with an easy-breather. And if the Rebels are so hung over from the Auburn loss that they struggle, well, that's worth noticing too.

In case of emergency: No. 25 Wisconsin at Purdue

Purdue has looked competent in flashes as of late, now that QB Austin Appleby is running the show, but this should be a rout for Wisconsin, which has lit up bad teams and has a monster defense. If you don't watch, that's okay; Melvin Gordon and Corey Clement are likely to show up in the highlights anyway.

Middle shift

Best option: No. 8 Notre Dame at No. 11 Arizona State

Spread: Arizona State -2.5
Read: One Foot DownHouse of Sparky

Notre Dame's still looking to play its way into Playoff contention, and in a crowded pack of strong one-loss teams, the only way the Irish are going to do that is with big wins. This is one of the last opportunities for Notre Dame to get those wins, and it'd be a massive one. Arizona State finds itself atop the Pac-12 South after a huge overtime win over Utah, and the Sun Devils passed a major test, the injury to QB Taylor Kelly, with flying colors. Kelly's still rounding back into form, and the closer he can get to 100 percent, the better a chance ASU has of defending its home turf.

Plan B: Texas A&M at No. 3 Auburn

Auburn's still alive in the Playoff race after its epic, horrific win over Ole Miss last week. Nick Marshall just shredded the Landshark defense. so the thought of what he could do to the Aggies' secondary is borderline sadistic. Meanwhile, the Aggies are in free-fall, and the 52-point shellacking they put on South Carolina seems like a whole lot longer than two months ago. A&M's completely out of the SEC West race, so even a win won't salvage anything the team would have been hoping for even a few weeks ago, but the Aggies desperately need a proud performance.

Keep it in mind: No. 24 West Virginia at Texas

Last week's loss to TCU was an emotional crusher for the Mountaineers, who were on the precipice of Big 12 championship contention despite spending most of the season unranked. Clint Trickett and crew are still dangerous and still entertaining as all hell, but this one's got "letdown game" written all over it if the 'Eers aren't careful. Charlie Strong's Longhorns aren't necessarily playing football well, but they're talented enough.

In case of emergency: Tennessee-Martin at No. 1 Mississippi State

If you're interested in watching Dak Prescott and crew running drills against 11 pylons dressed as football players, here you go.

Late shift

Best option: No. 4 Alabama at No. 14 LSU

Spread: Alabama -6.5
Read: Roll Bama Roll...And The Valley Shook

Look, if you can't get up for Bama-LSU under the Death Valley lights with major postseason implications, check your pulse or find another sport. This is as good as a college football atmosphere can get, the type of game that typifies why we watch in the first place, and that's all before Alabama's Playoff viability comes into play. The Tide have responded to their loss to Ole Miss with a roar, but LSU's as improved as anybody since September. Les Miles lives for moments like these. So does Nick Saban. Giddyup.

Plan B: No. 13 Ohio State at No. 7 Michigan State

GameDay's in East Lansing, and for good reason: this feels like the only heavyweight fight of the entire Big Ten schedule. The winner can probably ink itself into the Big Ten Championship as the East champion, while the loser is almost eliminated from anything better than, like, the Citrus Bowl. Ohio State's long been the big dog, but Michigan State outmuscled the Buckeyes in last season's B1G title game and looks more than capable of doing the same thing this weekend.

Keep it in mind: No. 9 Kansas State at No. 6 TCU

Oh, and here's a top-10 matchup with conference title implications. Enthusiasts of the color purple (the actual color—no offense, Alice Walker) will be filled with glee, with TCU looking to usurp KSU from the top of the Big 12 standings. Horned Frog QB Trevone Boykin has been a revelation, and if TCU keeps this up, he just might win the danged Heisman. KSU's been strangely unkillable, and if there's any zombie magic left for Bill Snyder's crew, we'll see it this Saturday night.

In case of emergency: No. 5 Oregon at No. 20 Utah

It seems unfathomable that this would be the fourth-best game of the evening, but here we are. Utah's been playing an awful lot of coin-flip games, and it just kept coming up heads until last weekend's overtime loss to Arizona State in Tempe. On paper Oregon should roll, but Utah's strong on both lines and its defense is Balboa-esque in its tenacity. This kicks off laaaate, so don't be surprised if our old friend Weird Football takes over after the stroke of midnight.
