Saturday conf champ

November 30, 2018

Who to watch in Saturday’s conference championship games … Conference championship weekend in college football actually gets underway later this evening with the PAC-12 and MAC title games. However, the real action begins tomorrow when the other power 5 conferences have their championship games including when #1 Alabama faces #4 Georgia for the SEC title which, for all intents and purposes, is a quarterfinal for the college football playoff (although Alabama could still very likely get a CFP invite even with a loss). The SEC final is also a game with as many top prospects per acre as any game this fall; here’s a quick preview of who to watch when the Tide play the Dawgs in tomorrow’s game with an eye toward the NFL draft. Same for Ohio State-Northwestern in the BIG TEN title game, while GBN Associate Editor Pigskin Paul Guillemette chips in with previews of both the ACC title game between #2 Clemson and Pittsburgh, as well as the BIG XII dual between old rivals Oklahoma and Texas.
