Primer: Picking the season's final games
Sadly, it's the final weekend of the season. But it's also a weekend filled with good games.
There are conference title games in the ACC, Big 12, Conference USA, MAC and SEC. It's the last one for the Big 12, but the big one is the SEC game in Atlanta. Auburn and South Carolina meet in a rematch of a game Auburn won in late September, and if the Tigers win again, they will be going to the national championship game.
Not playing this week but certain to be glued to their TV sets are players, coaches and fans associated with TCU. The school moved to the Big East earlier this week, and could get another jolt of publicity if either Auburn or Oregon loses; in that scenario, TCU likely gets a title game berth.
Here's a look at all the game involving FBS teams this week; in addition, we will take a quick look at the only FBS game next week, the annual Army-Navy showdown.
