Week 12 is here, and with it comes one of two last chances to separate the contenders from the Pretenders with a pair of regular season games left before Championship Saturday and the final College Football Playoff selection.
And with plenty to sort out on the football field.
Including in the SEC, whose Championship Game is set between Georgia and LSU, but with the Bulldogs still needing to stay undefeated in order to Preserve its No. 1 ranking and a spot in the playoff to defend its national championship.
And there are two major tilts in the Pac-12, one pitting rivals USC and UCLA with a shot at the league title, and potentially playoff consideration, on the line for the former, and a battle between Utah and Oregon that will also have a direct effect on what the conference championship game looks like.
TCU, sitting at No. 4 in the CFP rankings and already with a spot clinched in the Big 12 title match, heads out to Baylor hoping to stay undefeated and fend off competitors just outside the top four in the poll like Tennessee and Clemson.
