The college football season is slowly starting to come to an end.
For some teams — like South Carolina, Kentucky and Georgia — it will be playing the last SEC games of the season. But there is a plus side to that. All 14 SEC teams are playing conference games this week, and that should give you plenty of options on what to watch.
It’s another full schedule, with SEC games beginning at noon and the last game of the night kicking off at 7:30 p.m. ET. If the SEC isn’t your cup of tea, there are plenty of non-SEC games you can watch as well.
|Time||SEC Game||Should you watch|
|Noon ET||Mississippi State at No. 1(CFP) Alabama, ESPN/WatchESPN||Sure|
|South Carolina at Florida, CBS/ CBSSports Live||Absolutely|
|Kentucky at Tennessee, SEC Network/ WatchESPN||Yes|
|If you like to see lots of points|
|Baylor at No. 11 Oklahoma ABC/ESPN2 WatchESPN||Why not?|
|No. 16 West Virginia at Texas Fox Sports 1/ Fox Sports GO||Maybe|
The early games have big SEC East ramifications. Will Muschamp makes his return to the swamp and his team is riding a three game winning streak. The Gators are coming off a loss to Arkansas and will be without quarterback Luke Del Rio. It may not be a high scoring game but it should be a fascinating scene, given how the Muschamp era ended in Florida.
Tennessee hosts Kentucky and the Volunteers will try and end a three-game SEC losing streak. A win for Kentucky would also eliminate any hope of Tennessee winning the SEC East.
Alabama is coming off a physical contest against LSU. Mississippi State also pulled off an upset in the same time slot last week, as the Bulldogs knocked then No. 4 Texas A&M.
|Time||Game||Should you watch|
|3:30 p.m. ET||No. 9 Auburn at Georgia, CBS/CBSSports Live||Yes|
|Vanderbilt at Missouri, SEC Network/WatchESPN||Only if you’re a fan of these teams|
|Potential playoff contenders|
|Pitt at No. 2 Clemson, ABC/WatchESPN||Yes|
|Illinois at No. 7 Wisconsin, ESPN2/WatchESPN||Maybe|
|No. 5 Ohio State at Maryland, ESPN/WatchESPN||Sure|
Auburn and Georgia have produced some thrilling games in recent memory. A win for the Tigers sets up a potentially huge Iron Bowl matchup between Alabama. The Bulldogs will look to play spoiler and lock up bowl eligibility in Kirby Smart’s first season.
As for the three playoff contenders, Clemson has the toughest game as it takes on a feisty Pitt team that already beat current No. 10 Penn State. Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson did leave the game last week with an injury, but he is expected to play this week. Ohio State has a tricky road trip to College Park as well.
|Time||SEC game||Should you watch|
|7 p.m. ET||No. 24 LSU at No. 25 Arkansas, ESPN/WatchESPN||Yes|
|7:30 p.m. ET||Ole Miss at No. 8 Texas A&M, SEC Network/WatchESPN||Maybe|
|Potential playoff upsets|
|No. 20 USC at No. 4 Washington, Fox/ Fox Sports Go||Absolutely|
|8 p.m. ET||No. 3 Michigan at Iowa, ESPN/WatchESPN||Yes|
Arkansas-LSU figures to be the best SEC game on the day. It’s the only SEC game between two top-25 teams and the two teams play for a giant golden boot. Rivalries like this one make college football great.
The Texas A&M-Ole Miss took an interesting turn, as both team will be without their starting quarterbacks. Ole Miss could start 5-star true freshman Shea Patterson, so that could be kind of fun.
As for the other big late games, both have a decent chance at being upset. Michigan travels to Iowa while the Washington Huskies take on a red hot USC team. It should be another fun and exciting weekend in college football.
