It's the week before rivalry week, and the final regular season weekend for FCS, and the first week of the playoffs in Divisions II and III and the NAIA. We're starting to run out of football, kids.
This morning, K-State tries to save its season against Iowa State. While that's going on, Memphis will clash with Temple in a game which doesn't have the panache it did a month ago. Should still be pretty good, though. Michigan meets Penn State as well, and during the morning window nearly all the playoff games in the lower divisions will take place. Because the schools retain the rights to first-round games, the majority of them are still under subscription umbrellas; that being the case, we're not including them here today.
The mid-afternoon slot includes Houston's attempt to move to 11-0 at Connecticut, Les Miles potentially (and inexplicably) coaching for his job as LSU visits Ole Miss, Wisconsin hosting Northwestern to see which one will stop being considered a quality win for Iowa, UCLA at Utah, USC at Oregon, and the biggie: Michigan State at Ohio State. It's a stacked afternoon.
The evening starts with Mississippi State visiting Arkansas and Navy propping up their AAC title hopes at Tulsa, but the real slugfest begins a half-hour later. Baylor visits Oklahoma State, and thirty minutes after that TCU and Oklahoma kickoff.
Your late-night highlight is the unofficial start of Rivalry Week, as Cal and Stanford close out the night with The Game in Palo Alto.
As always, here's every FBS game as well as every FCS game which is either televised on a nationally-available network or carried on ESPN3. The big words under the logos are your streaming links. Enjoy the penultimate Saturday of the regular season... except for the Big 12 and Sun Belt, that is.
