TCU vs. Kansas State, Georgia vs. LSU and more

Welcome to conference championship weekend, where things get chaotic.

With the College Football Playoff field set to be revealed on Sunday, all that’s left to do is determine the winners of each conference across the country. And with No. 3 TCU lost to Kansas State 31-28 in overtime in the Big 12 title game and No. 4 USC lost the Pac-12 Championship to Utahthe debate is about to continue.

While No. 1 Georgia and No. 2 Michigan seem like locks to make the four-team field, did TCU and USC just play themselves out of it? If so, is it fair that No. 5 Ohio State or No. 6 Alabama are ahead of them despite not playing this week? The committee will have to answer these questions on Sunday.

In the meantime, here’s a breakdown of today’s remaining conference games.

(Note: All times ET, odds from BetMGM)

SEC: No. 1 Georgia vs. No. 14 LSU

Time: 4:00 PM ET | Television: CBS | Line: Georgia -17.5 | Total 51.5

The Bulldogs appear to be in the College Football Playoff no matter what happens on Saturday. The conference title would be the 14th in school history and first since 2017 after losing to Alabama in the title game a year ago. Three-loss LSU is out of the playoff picture, but needs to win to advance to the Sugar Bowl. Otherwise, Citrus Bowl can cause. LSU last won the SEC in 2019 en route to a national title.

Big Ten: Purdue vs. No. 2 Michigan

Time: 20.00 | TV: Fox | Line: UM -17 | Total: 51.5

The Wolverines are going to win two Big Ten titles in a row. To top it all off, a win would guarantee Michigan a spot in the College Football Playoff. It’s hard to see Michigan being eliminated even with a loss, but a seed is certainly on the line for the Wolverines. It’s also a big deal for Purdue. The Boilermakers have never reached the Big Ten championship before and have a chance to win the conference title for the first time since 2000. A win would earn Purdue a trip to the Rose Bowl.

ACC: No. 23 North Carolina vs. No. 9 Clemson

Time: 20.00 | TV: ABC | Line: Clemson -7.5 | Total: 63.5

Although neither team in this game has a realistic shot at making the playoffs, Clemson is playing in its eighth ACC title game in its 17-year history. Clemson won six straight ACC titles between 2015 and 2020 before its streak was snapped last year. Meanwhile, this is UNC’s second appearance in the ACC title game. North Carolina hasn’t won a conference championship since 1980 and hasn’t had a double-digit win season since 2015.
