College football schedule: TV and streaming for Championship Saturday
Full guide below on who’s playing when and where on college football’s biggest weekend.
We’ve finally reached Championship Saturday in college football, and thanks to some conferences playing more drawn out schedules, we’re also getting some pretty exciting non-championship games, as well.
Three of the championship games on Saturday have potential Playoff implications. Ohio State takes on Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game, hoping to sneak into the College Football Playoff. The Buckeyes are sitting at No. 5 in the Playoff rankings, but even a win over Wisconsin might not be enough to jump Florida State or TCU without some help, particularly since the Buckeyes’ perception could be hurt now that quarterback J.T. Barrett is out for the season.
Meanwhile, Alabama is ranked No. 1 in the Playoff rankings, but the Crimson Tide could fall out of the rankings if they lose to a Missouri team that slid under the radar this year and is playing its best football of the year. Florida State needs to win the ACC Championship Game after falling to fourth in the Playoff rankings, despite being undefeated. The Seminoles have had a lot of close calls in recent weeks, and now they’re playing a very good Georgia Tech team.
Away from championship action, the big regular season game of the week is Kansas State vs. Baylor. Can a good showing propel the Bears into the Playoff? We’ll see on Sunday, but Saturday will be key to helping us figure out perhaps the biggest question of the Playoff’s first year.
