Mississippi State, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Missouri – all teams that could be in a prime position to win the coveted SEC championship, and with good reason too: Since 2007 the SEC Champion has played in the national championship game every single year, and won 7 out of 8 with the lone loss occurring last year in FSU’s win over Auburn.
With 4 of those 5 teams playing each other and Missouri going on the road to play Texas A&M, all of those teams have hard battles ahead in order to go to the title game and potentially earn a spot in the College Football Playoffs.
Here are the five games to watch in Week 12 of college football:
5. #16 Nebraska vs. #20 Wisconsin – The winner of this game becomes the favorite to play for the Big 10 title, but even more than that is two explosive RBs in Ameer Abdullah and Melvin Gordon will be on display. This will be a fun game to watch.
4. #8 Ohio State vs. #25 Minnesota – The Buckeyes are going into a snowy game in Minnesota where QB J.T. Barrett may be less effective through the air. Ohio State needs to avoid the trap game in order to continue on the road to the Big 10 title.
3. #9 Auburn vs. #15 Georgia – A homecoming for returning RB Todd Gurley? An angry Auburn team that was just knocked out of the College Football Playoffs? How could anyone not be excited to watch this game?
2. #3 Florida State vs. Miami – This is one of the biggest rivalries in college football and Miami is one of only two teams left on the schedule that can end the FSU undefeated streak. This will be an interesting game to watch.
1. #1 Mississippi State vs. #5 Alabama – Is there really any doubt? Whoever wins this game will not only become the prohibitive favorite for the SEC title, but could also be the eventual winner of the national championship game.
