(Sporting Alert) — No. 1 Alabama, as well No. 2 Florida State and the third-ranked Ohio State will all be in action in Week 12 of NCAA College Football on Saturday.
Alabama are going in search of their 10th successive win this season, while the Bulldogs, who have lost three of the last five, are hoping to end a two game losing streak.
Second-ranked Florida State (9-0, 7-0 ACC) will also be searching for their 10th straight win when they tackle Syracuse (5-4, 3-2 ACC). The Seminoles, ranked second on average for points in a game this this season, are coming off a dominating 59-3 victory over Wake Forest Demon Deacons last week and will although Orange is of better quality, the hosts will be looking for a similar outcome at Doak Campbell Stadium.
Meanwhile, No. 3 Ohio State (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) will get the ball rolling against a Illinois (3-6, 0-5 Big Ten) team which has dropped it last five.
No. 4 Stanford (8-1, 6-1 Pac-12) will play USC (7-3, 4-2 Pac-12), live on ABC, 5Baylor (8-0, 5-0 Big 12) face Texas Tech (7-3, 4-3 Big 12), No. 6 Oregon (8-1, 5-1 Pac-12) who were shocked 26-20 by the Stanford Cardinal the last time they play will go up against Utah (4-5, 1-5 Pac-12).
“We got beat by a very good team,” Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich.
“You look at what you did well and you look at what you didn’t do well, and you try, obviously, to do more of the former than the latter. And move on.”
No. Auburn (9-1, 5-1 SEC) take on No. 25 Georgia(6-3, 4-2 SEC) and the 12th-ranked Oklahoma State(8-1, 5-1 Big 12) tackle No. 24 Texas (7-2, 6-0 Big 12).
