Best College Football Games on TV Today

UCF at No. 3 Cincinnati, 12 p.m. on ABC

Both teams are typically contenders in the American Athletic Conference, but undefeated Cincinnati has much more to play for this time around while UCF has the opportunity to play spoiler in a major way.

No. 12 Oklahoma State at No. 25 Texas, 12 p.m. on FOX

Oklahoma State is coming off of a bye while Texas is still processing what happened to its 18-point, third-quarter lead in the Red River Showdown. The Cowboys enter this game better-positioned for a spot in the Big 12 Championship Game, but you know the Longhorns want another shot at Oklahoma.

Auburn at No. 17 Arkansas, 12 p.m. on CBS

Auburn got manhandled by Georgia last time out while Arkansas came up short in a track meet with Ole Miss. Which SEC West team rebounds in Fayetteville? 

No. 20 Florida at LSU, 12 p.m. on ESPN

Everyone remembers what happened the last time these two teams played. (Hands off the shoes this time fellas.) This time it's in Baton Rouge. Not much has gone right for Ed Orgeron or LSU lately, so a win over Florida in front of the home crowd would feel really good.

No. 11 Kentucky at No. 1 Georgia, 3:30 p.m. on CBS

It doesn't get much bigger for these two teams. More than first place in the SEC East is on the line in Athens.
