NCAA Football: Week 13 Game Rankings
So with that in mind, let's take a look at the best games on the Week 13 schedule.
5. #19 Wisconsin (8-2) at #25 Minnesota (8-2) - 3:30 PM ET, ESPN
Those outside of the Big Ten probably haven't too focused on these two 8-2 teams. However, they are both pretty solid football teams, and this is one of the more anticipated rivalry games between the two in recent memory. The Badgers are coming off of a game where they compiled 554 rushing yards, which is simply an unbelievable statistic. Meanwhile, Minnesota had a week off to prepare for this one, and technically, they still have a shot at winning the division and facing Ohio State should Michigan State collapse in their final two outings of the regular season.
4. #8 Missouri (9-1) at #24 Ole Miss (7-3) - 7:45 PM ET, ESPN
Think Missouri has nothing to worry about in this one? Well, think again. The Rebels only losses this season have come at the hands of Alabama, Auburn, and Texas A&M. There's certainly no shame in that. The Tigers need to win out if they want to make it to the SEC title game in Atlanta, but this game is going to be an extremely difficult challenge. Ole Miss has played its last four games at home and has been victorious in all of them, so they've found their comfort zone at the Grove. I smell an upset brewing.
3. #12 Texas A&M (8-2) at #22 LSU (7-3) - 3:30 PM ET, CBS
LSU had its shot at knocking off the Crimson Tide a few weeks ago but was unsuccessful. Now, they must prepare for the task of stopping a ridiculously good A&M offense led by Jonathan Paul Manziel. He's still probably ahead of Jameis Winston in in the Heisman race at this point and it'll be interesting to see how the LSU defense tries to counter the Aggie attack. This isn't the same type of LSU team we're accustomed to seeing. That's why Manziel and company have an excellent shot at walking out of Baton Rouge with a victory on Saturday.
2. #17 Arizona State (8-2) at #14 UCLA (8-2) - 7 PM ET, FOX
If the Sun Devils win this game, they head to the Pac-12 title game. UCLA can do the same thing if they win and follow it up with a win over USC next weekend. So, ya know, not too much at stake or anything here in this one. While Arizona State's offense gets most of the attention, the defense is worthy of a lot of praise as well. Going on the road and winning at UCLA will be no easy task though. Expect this one to go right down to the wire.
1. #4 Baylor (9-0) at #10 Oklahoma State (9-1) - 8 PM ET, ABC
If you're a fan of defensive-minded football that results in a low-scoring game, you might want to stay away from ABC on Saturday night. Should these two teams be firing on all cylinders offensively, they could both reach the 70's. And if you've watched Baylor and Oklahoma State play this season, you know that's no exaggeration. This will be the biggest road challenge for the Bears all season long, so it's hard to know how they will react. I would venture to say that they won't reach the 70-point mark, but they'll still score points. The team that has the ball last will win this game.
