Why You Should Watch: These former conference rivals (ACC, but also the Southern Conference) will renew acquaintances in a baseball stadium. Unique setting aside, both Virginia Tech and Maryland will be looking to finish this season with a winning record. The Hokies will try and so with an interim head coach and a roster that's in a state of transition, to put it mildly.

Cheez-It Bowl: No. 19 Clemson vs. Iowa State

5:45 p.m. on ESPN – Camping World Stadium (Orlando, Fla.)

Why You Should Watch: This is a matchup of teams that started the season ranked in the top 10 but failed to match those expectations. Clemson has won five in a row but is breaking in new coordinators on both sides of the ball while dealing with the prospect of not being in the College Football Playoff for the first time in seven years. Iowa State has more coaching continuity, but the Cyclones will be without their best player, running back Breece Hall, as well as a couple of other starters.

Valero Alamo Bowl: No. 14 Oregon vs. No. 16 Oklahoma

9:15 p.m. on ESPN – Alamodome (San Antonio)

Why You Should Watch: This will be a matchup of interim head coaches, as Bryan McClendon leads Oregon following Mario Cristobal's departure to Miami and recently inducted Bob Stoops is back on Oklahoma's sideline with Lincoln Riley now at USC. Neither team is anywhere close to full strength between NFL draft decisions, transfers, and injuries. So this could be a battle of attrition between two of college football's marquee programs, but that doesn't mean it won't be entertaining.
