NCAA Rivaly Week Open Thread

The best week of the college football regular season!

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

It is the final week of the college regular season which means rivalry week! We got kicked off with a bang yesterday with Arizona punching their ticket to the Pac-12 championship game against Oregon by beating Arizona State 42-35, in conjunction with UCLA getting blown out by Stanford 31-10. Missouri beat Arkansas 21-14 to put itself into the SEC championship game. Virginia Tech beat Virginia 24-20 to become bowl eligible for the 22nd straight year, the longest active streak in college football. Here's a sample of what's on tap for what should be a wild Saturday.

South Carolina @ #21 Clemson

#16 Georgia Tech @ #9 Georgia

Kentucky @ #22 Louisville

Michigan @ #6 Ohio State

#25 Utah @ Colorado

#4 Mississippi State @ #19 Ole Miss

Florida @ #3 Florida State

Notre Dame @ USC

#7 Baylor @ Texas Tech

#18 Minnesota @ #14 Wisconsin

Kansas @ #12 Kansas State

The Iron Bowl: #15 Auburn @ #1 Alabama

#2 Oregon @ Oregon State

There's also other in-state rivalries between unranked teams that can always get interesting like Purdue @ Indiana, NC State @ North Carolina, and Washington @ Washington State. Then of course, you have the biggest game of the week as Rutgers travels to College Park to take on Maryland in a matchup that is sure to captivate the country.

Use this thread to discuss it all. As always, no cursing, no illegal stream requests, and no doing dumb stuff. Enjoy the college football, look for potential Jets prospects that they can take with their top 5 pick in each round, and gorge yourself with Turkey Day leftovers. Well, you don't HAVE to do all that, but I know I will be.
