Good afternoon Gator fans.
Now that Florida has left the field and its season is over, console yourself with the day’s other rivalries and recreations, as you anxiously obsess over and await coaching news.
On deck there is a hugely hyped top-ten tilt between the two SEC West members from the Yellowhammer State, and two top-25 west coast bouts in the evening shift.
Here are our picks for the remainder of today’s viewing windows:
Afternoon (3:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Eastern)
Alabama at Auburn (3:30 p.m., CBS): The biggest rivalry match-up of the day is the defacto SEC West title match between the No. 1 Crimson Tide and the No. 6 Tigers. This is the eighth time that the Iron Bowl will feature two top-ten teams. The last two times that happened, in 2010 and 2013, marked Auburn’s last two victories in the rivalry.
Wisconsin at Minnesota (3:30 p.m., ABC): Pretty sure most everyone will be watching the Iron Bowl, but there are technically other games on! The undefeated No. 5 Badgers look to put a bow on an undefeated regular season, while the Gophers hope to pull a big upset to get bowl eligible. It’s the battle for Paul Bunyan’s axe, y’all.
West Virginia at Oklahoma (3:45 p.m., ESPN/WatchESPN): The Mountaineers will be without the services of former Gator and star quarterback Will Grier for the second week in a row after Grier suffered a grisly finger injury. The No. 3 Sooners have their own distractions heading into this one, after Baker Mayfield’s sideline antics against Kansas cost him the start for this game, and his captaincy. It seems likely that Mayfield, who had some colorful and impassioned responses during last week’s game after the Jayhawk captains refused to shake his hand pre-game, will take the field at some point though.
In other games: Penn State visits Maryland, Iowa State visits Kansas State, and North Carolina heads to rival NC State (all at 3:30 p.m.). Vanderbilt also visits Tennessee in a game I can’t imagine many outside of the state of Tennessee wanting to see (4:00 p.m.).
Evening (7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Eastern)
Clemson at South Carolina (7:30 p.m., ESPN/WatchESPN): The No. 4 Tigers go to Columbia to face Will Muschamp’s improved Gamecocks, who surely would like to avenge last year’s 56-7 loss. This year, South Carolina has won eight games for the first time since 2013, and finished second in the SEC East. Clemson has its sights set on another ACC title and College Football Playoff berth, but will need to take care of the Gamecocks first.
Washington State at Washington (8:00 p.m., FOX): The No. 15 Huskies host the No. 14 Cougars for this year’s edition of the Apple Cup. Washington State can punch their ticket to the Pac 12 Championship game, winning the North Division title, with a win over Washington. This would be the Cougar’s first appearance in the championship game. The Huskies have won seven out of the last eight match-ups between the rivals, and would like to deny their foe the chance at their first championship game.
Notre Dame at Stanford (8:00 p.m., ABC/WatchESPN): The No. 9 Fighting Irish finish the regular season at the No. 20 Cardinal tonight. Stanford will surely have one eye on the tilt between the two teams from the state of Washington, as it would be the Cardinal in that championship game if the Huskies defeat the Cougars. The still top-ten Irish are coming off their two worst performances of the year, but Stanford will be facing them potentially without Heisman Trophy hopeful Bryce Love, who is battling ankle injuries.
In other games: Texas A&M tries to get over the LSU hump (7:30 p.m.), and Oregon State is at Oregon for the Civil War (7:00 p.m.).
