College Football Games on TV Today (Saturday, Dec. 12)

This is the last full weekend of the college football regular season, so it comes as no surprise that there are many significant games on tap for Saturday, Dec. 12. Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to rob fans of some of the best matchups (Michigan-Ohio State, Oklahoma-West Virginia, Washington-Oregon among those canceled this week), but there are still plenty of big games to tune into. There are several conference races still undecided as we head into Championship Week, and Saturday also will feature several of the sport's biggest rivalries, including the greatest of them all.

So if you're wondering "What college football games are on today?" know this: There are 33 involving FBS teams scheduled for today, Saturday, Dec. 12.

Best College Football Games on TV Today

No. 9 Georgia at No. 25 Missouri, 12 p.m. on SEC Network

Neither Georgia nor Missouri is going to win the SEC East, but as one of just two games on the docket between ranked teams, this could be interesting. The Bulldogs seemed to be energized on offense with JT Daniels taking over at quarterback while the Tigers are coming off of a win against Arkansas in which they piled up 653 yards and gave up 566.

The biggest rivalry in college football, this year's Army-Navy Game will certainly look and feel different because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be the first time the game has been played on either service academy's campus since 1943. Can Army beat Navy so the Black Knights can sing second on their own field?

No. 17 North Carolina at No. 10 Miami, 3:30 p.m. on ABC

There's no spot in the ACC Championship Game on the line, but this matchup between North Carolina and Miami could decide which team winds up in the Orange Bowl. Either way, tune in to watch two explosive offenses led by talented quarterbacks.

Wisconsin at No. 16 Iowa, 3:30 p.m. on FS1

Northwestern has already won the Big Ten West but the Heartland Trophy remains on the line. Wisconsin has claimed it the last four years, so Iowa would love to put an end to that on their home field. This game also could be interesting to watch with the forecast calling for wintry, windy conditions, or just perfect for a classic Big Ten rivalry game.

LSU at No. 6 Florida, 7 p.m. on ESPN

The roles have been reversed for these traditional SEC crossover rivals. Last year it was LSU featuring the explosive offense with the Heisman Trophy contender at quarterback. Now it's Florida fitting that bill. The Gators already know that Alabama awaits them next week in Atlanta, so will they be caught looking ahead?

No. 15 USC at UCLA, 7:30 p.m. on ABC

The Victory Bell isn't the only thing on the line in the Rose Bowl on Saturday night. A victory by USC would book the Trojans in the Pac-12 Championship Game and put them one step closer towards a possible New Year's Six bowl berth. A win by UCLA would further validate the progress the Bruins have made in Chip Kelly's third year at the helm. It also would serve as some payback for the 52-35 loss last year in the Coliseum.

Virginia at Virginia Tech, 8 p.m. on ACC Network

Virginia finally put an end to Virginia Tech's 15-year winning streak so can the Cavaliers make it two in a row? That hasn't happened since 1997-98. Meanwhile, it's been a rough season for Hokies but taking back the Commonwealth Cup would certainly be the highlight.
