This may be the last week before we find out where teams will end up for the postseason, but predicting what will happen is still a total crapshoot.
Four automatic qualifying conferences have championship games and the Big 12 essentially has one as well this year with Oklahoma taking on Oklahoma State in Stillwater. There are also pivotal games from non-automatic qualifying conferences including No. 6 Houston battling No. 24 Southern Miss and No. 18 TCU taking on UNLV.
If either of those teams win and are ranked in the Top 16, the higher ranked team would automatically go to the BCS.
Between the excellent play on the field and all of the huge consequences the games will have, college football could have its most exciting week. Would it happen any other way?
