It's crunch time in week 11. Some teams are bowl eligible, while some are out.
There are a lot that are looking for one or two more wins to get to a bowl, and they only have a couple more chances.
Tuesday, Nov. 10
Ohio at Buffalo
Ohio is still a game behind Temple, but if they win out up to the regular season finale against the Owls, they could steal the East title.
Wednesday, Nov. 11
Toledo at Central Michigan
Really not much to say other than Central Michigan is looking to stay perfect in MAC play.
Thursday, Nov. 12
Ball State at Northern Illinois
Much like Ohio, Northern Illinois is a game back and meets Central Michigan in the regular season finale, where they could slip into the MAC title game.
South Florida at Rutgers
Both played two FCS teams, so while both have six wins, neither is considered bowl eligible. The winner will become the Big East’s fourth bowl eligible team.
Friday, Nov. 13
West Virginia at Cincinnati
Cincinnati is atop the conference with West Virginia sitting just behind. A win for either will go a long way toward deciding the conference, and even the loser won't be totally out of it.
Temple at Akron
Temple is having a dream season. They are well on their way to the MAC championship game and a bowl.
Saturday, Nov. 14
Tennessee at Mississippi
I think Tennessee is having a better season than expected, while Mississippi may be having a slightly disappointing one. This game puts one of these teams in a bowl.
Colorado at Iowa State
If Iowa State wins, I think two things happen. One, they would be bowl eligible; two, I think Colorado would be looking for a new head coach.
Arizona at Cal
Both are coming in a bit beat up. Arizona looks to keep its Pac-10 title hopes alive. Cal is still trying to salvage a season that had high hopes that have come crashing down.
Arizona State at Oregon
Everyone was anointing Oregon THE hottest team in the country. Then they lost. They are still on top of the Pac-10, but their cushion isn’t there anymore.
Idaho at Boise State
Idaho has been having a good season and is bowl eligible. For a while there it seemed like they would be one of the challengers to Boise State. In recent weeks they haven’t been quite as good but could still catch Boise sleeping.
Nebraska at Kansas
Nebraska is pushing for the Big XII North title. Kansas is trying to get to a bowl.
Iowa at Ohio State
I had it planned as the game of the week, but after Iowa lost last week and with Ricky Stanzi out, not so much. Still a big one in deciding the Big Ten representative for the Rose Bowl.
Washington at Oregon State
Oregon State is still in the mix for the Pac-10 title. Washington already has a couple of upsets under their belt.
Florida at South Carolina
Florida already has the East locked up, but that doesn’t mean they can sleep on a team like the Gamecocks.
Stanford at USC
Two years ago Stanford beating USC was considered one of the biggest upsets of all time. If it were to happen this year, would many people even blink? I wouldn’t.
Fresno State at Nevada
The nation's leading rusher, Ryan Mathews from Fresno State, against the nation's second leading rushing team, Nevada.
Southern Miss at Marshall
Both still have a shot at the Conference USA East. The winner will become bowl eligible.
Auburn at Georgia
Auburn is weird this year and has been streaky. Right now they are winning. Georgia, on the other hand, is just not having a typical Georgia year. I think this is one of those anything can happen games.
Texas A&M at Oklahoma
Who would have thought these two would be playing at this point for a spot in a bowl?
Troy at Arkansas
Troy keeps booking games with SEC teams, and they lose, but I think it is safe to say that the SEC teams know they have been in a game. I also think it is just a matter of time before instead of coming up just short, Troy gets one.
Utah at TCU
The Mountain West, for the third time this season, will host College GameDay . This one will likely decide the conference, and TCU is playing for its shot at a BCS bowl.
Texas Tech at Oklahoma State
If you like offense, this is your game. I think whichever defense can step up is who will win this one.
Notre Dame at Pitt
Notre Dame went from proclaiming to be back to now trying to salvage the season—and may be playing for Charlie Weis’ job.
Sunday, Nov. 15
East Carolina at Tulsa
This was last year's conference title game. East Carolina has a shot to return, but Tulsa not so much.
