Blog Photo - NCAAF Week 11 Live ThreadNormally Saturday is where the big stories come to a head in college football. Obviously, this week was different after Thursday's huge contests. Baylor proved they aren't just a paper tiger against Oklahoma, while Stanford again ended Oregon's national title hopes. Thus, we turn to Alabama and Florida State, who are in position to reach the final BCS title game if they win out. If they falter, Ohio State, Baylor, and Stanford are all there to take their place. While the Seminoles should have no problem with Wake Forest, Alabama is in the on paper Game of the Day at home against LSU. The Tigers don't appear to be as good as in years past, but it's easily the biggest test the Crimson Tide have faced since the Texas A&M game.

That is the only game between ranked teams today, and most of those ranked teams are in clunkers. Miami will try and rebound from last week's loss against struggling Virginia Tech. Johnny Manziel will play what is likely his last game at Kyle Field as the Aggies face Mississippi State. Finally, Houston and UCF play for the lead in the American and the driver's seat in the race for the BCS berth. That serves are your reminder that the American champion receives a BCS spot.
