Best College Football Games on TV Today

Big 12 Championship: Baylor vs. Oklahoma (Arlington, Texas), 12 p.m. on ABC

It took a huge comeback by the Sooners to hand the Bears their first loss of the season when these teams met in Waco three weeks ago. The winner of this game could wind up in the College Football Playoff so expect plenty of fireworks inside AT&T Stadium.

Sun Belt Championship: Louisiana at Appalachian State, 12 p.m. on ESPN

The Mountaineers probably aren't getting the Group of 5's New Year's Six bid but there's nothing wrong with improving to 12-1 by going 2-for-2 in the Sun Belt Championship Game. However, the Ragin' Cajuns are 10-2 and gave Appalachian State a fight the first time these teams met in Boone back in October.

MAC Championship: Miami (Ohio) vs. Central Michigan (Detroit), 12 p.m. on ESPN2

Two unlikely division champs face off in Ford Field for the MAC title. After going 1-11 in 2018, the Chippewas have completely turned things around under first-year head coach Jim McElwain. The RedHawks find themselves on the right side of .500 for the first time since 2010. That also was the last year Miami won the MAC.

Conference USA Championship: UAB at Florida Atlantic, 1:30 p.m. on CBSSN

The past two C-USA champs meet in Boca Raton. Bill Clark's Blazers have a chance to make it back-to-back conference crowns, while Lane Kiffin's Owls can win another to add to their 2017 title. It doesn't hurt that it's a matchup of the conference's top-scoring offense vs. the stingiest defense either.

AAC Championship: Cincinnati at Memphis, 3:30 p.m. on ABC

Don't I know you? Tigers beat the Bearcats 34-24 at home a week ago. Winner probably secures the Group of 5's New Year's Six bowl berth as well, although Boise State enters the weekend one spot ahead of Cincinnati in the playoff rankings.
