Viewer's guide: Some to be left out in cold
As the temperature drops, so do national title and conference contenders. It's likely that a few more teams hoping to remain relevant fall this week.
LSU has just one loss, but the Tigers must beat Alabama to remain in contention in the SEC West in the only matchup between top-10 teams. In the Big Ten, Ohio State and Penn State meet in a game with BCS implications. While Penn State already has lost to Iowa, the Buckeyes can win the Big Ten by defeating the Nittany Lions and Hawkeyes in back-to-back weeks.
Teams from two much-maligned divisions - the ACC Atlantic and the Big 12 North - face what likely are must-win games if they hope to reach their conference championship games. Clemson and Florida State meet in the ACC Atlantic, with Clemson hoping to stay atop the division. The Seminoles are trying to stay alive in the division race. Meanwhile, Nebraska plays host to Oklahoma, and the Huskers are trying to keep pace in the Big 12 North.
Here's a look at the top five games for Saturday, along with breakdowns of important nationally televised games Thursday and Friday.
All times Eastern.
