Game of the Week:  (15) Texas A&M  at  (1) Alabama3:30 PM ET – CBSWhether you're from Oregon, Kansas State, or Notre Dame you'll be watching this game as Texas A&M is your last hope to knock out Alabama.  A&M’s only two losses on the season are against top 10 opponents and each were decided by 5 points or less so you can expect a close game.  I’m especially excited to see how Nick Saban plans to stop freshman sensation Johnny Manziel.(11) Oregon State  at  (14) Stanford3:00 PM ET – FOXQuarterbacks Cody Vaz and Kevin Hogan have two things in common.  Neither one of them were named the starting quarterback at the beginning of the season and both will start this week with their seasons on the line.Despite the B-Team quarterback duel, each team still has a shot at winning the Pac-12 North with only one conference loss a piece.  I expect a low scoring game as both teams pit a top 20 defense and a struggling offense.(21) Mississippi State  at  (7) LSU7:00 PM ET – ESPNMississippi State has been overrated all season and they revealed their true colors after being dominated in two consecutive games.  LSU said farewell to an SEC championship after last week’s loss to Alabama but with a BCS at-large bid still up for grabs you can expect Les Miles to have his Tigers focused.(2) Kansas State  at  TCU7:00 PM ET – FOXIf you love a close game this one has all the ingredients for a nail biter as TCU is 1-1 against ranked opponents with a combined 5 overtime periods and 186 points in those two games.  The big story surrounding this game is whether or not Heisman front-runner Collin Klein will be playing on Saturday.  Klein left last week’s game in the third quarter with an apparent head injury and never returned.  Coach Snyder expects Klein to play but is prepared to go on without him.(5) Georgia  at  Auburn7:00 PM ET – ESPN2They met for the first time in 1892 and have played annually since 1944 in a game known as the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.  A win for Georgia means two things this year.  A win will clinch the SEC East and will also tie the series with Auburn (Auburn leads 54-53-8) for the first time since 1987.  In their 115 meetings they’ve seen 35 shutouts with the last one coming in 1976.  Could this year be number 36?Honorable Mention: (20) Louisiana Tech   at  Texas State7:00 PM ET – Longhorn NetworkWhy would I choose this game?  Because it’s my article and I can.  I chose this game because this will be Texas States’ first matchup against a top 25 opponent as an FBS team and I’ll be there to witness it.  This game has more meaning then you think.  Louisiana Tech is just four slots away from becoming a BCS at-large candidate. The Bulldogs rank second nationally in points per game (52.4) and have put up over 500 yards of offense in five straight games.
