College football's Week 12 slate for the 2019 season features 53 games from Wednesday to Saturday, and our NCAA experts are ready with their predictions and picks. The Week 12 action started with two MAC games on Tuesday night and continues on Wednesday with Bowling Green visiting Miami (Ohio) and Toledo hosting Northern Illinois. Buffalo-Kent State begins the Thursday night slate, with a key ACC showdown between North Carolina and Pitt also on tap. The Group of 5 takes the spotlight on Friday night. Louisiana Tech travels to Marshall in a potential preview for the Conference USA title game, while Fresno State meets San Diego State in a matchup that could decide the winner of the Mountain West's West Division. On Saturday, Alabama at Mississippi State, Indiana-Penn State, Florida-Missouri, Michigan State-Michigan and Wisconsin-Nebraska headline the top matchups from the early slate. The afternoon schedule features Navy-Notre Dame, Wake Forest-Clemson, Texas-Iowa State, Minnesota-Iowa and Georgia-Auburn. Oklahoma at Baylor is the must-see matchup at night, but LSU-Ole Miss, South Carolina-Texas A&M, UCLA-Utah and USC-California also provide intrigue.
