COLUMBUS, OH, Sporting Alert – The following is the schedule, live TV channels, streams and kick-off times for the NCAA DI college football games in Week 13 on Saturday, Nov. 26.
Highlighting the list of games this weekend are the Big Ten East Division showdown between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Michigan and the SEC West clash between top-ranked Alabama and longtime rival Auburn.
At Ohio Stadium in Columbus, the Buckeyes (10-1, 7-1 Big Ten) and the Wolverines (10-1, 7-1 Big Ten) will go head-to-head in a vital conference clash that is expected to play a big role in the race for a College Football Playoff place.
Last year Ohio State hammered Michigan 42-13 and has won 10 of the last 11 meetings in this series.
Despite holding a top four spot in the CFP rankings at the moment, several college football experts believe the loser of this game over the weekend will fall out of the playoff race.
ESPN’s Football Power Index gives the Buckeyes a 58.8 percent chance to beat the Wolverines at home.
Crimson Tide Ready To Role Iron Bowl
At Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, No. 1 Alabama will tackle Auburn in the Iron Bowl and Crimson Tide head coach Saban believes this is the perfect preparation for the SEC conference championship game between East Division winner Florida on Dec. 3.
“I think this is one of the greatest rivalry games in the country,” Saban said.
“I know it means a lot to a lot of people in this state as well as nationally and the competitors in the game probably enjoy this kind of competition, this kind of rivalry as much as any game that they play.”
Alabama (11-0, 7-0 SEC) has won six of the last eight meetings, including a 29-13 victory last year.
They have an 81.6 percent chance to beat the Tigers (8-3, 5-2), according to ESPN’s Football Power Index.
The Crimson Tide lead the all-time series 44-35-1.
Elsewhere, No. 4 Clemson will step out of conference to take on South Carolina (6-5) at Memorial Stadium and the Tigers (10-1) are a massive 25.5 point favourites to beat the Gamecocks.
Clemson, which defeated Wake Forest 35-13 last week, has a 96 percent chance to run all over South Carolina on Saturday, according to ESPN’s Football Power Index, although the Gamecocks have won on two of their last three trips to Memorial Stadium.
In other highlighted college football games on the schedule this weekend; the surging No. 12 USC seeks to an eighth successive game when it goes up against Notre Dame, No. 7 Penn State (9-2, 7-1 Big Ten) will hope to stay in the college football playoff hunt with a win over Michigan State, while No. 9 Colorado (9-2, 7-1 Pac-12) face-off against No. 22 Utah (8-3, 5-3 Pac-12) in a key conference game.
