With College Football Playoff selection on Sunday, some of the nation’s top teams will have a final shot on Saturday to impress the committee. Here’s a rundown of the college football conference championship games (both official and unofficial) on TV Saturday, Dec. 3:
American Athletic Conference Championship Game: Temple (9-3, 7-1) at No. 19 Navy (9-2, 7-1) (ABC, 12pm ET) The Temple Owls face the No. 19 Navy Midshipmen (9-2) in the American Athletic Conference title game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md.
Conference USA Championship Game: Louisiana Tech (8-4, 6-2) at Western Kentucky (9-3, 7-1) (ESPN, 12pm ET) The defending C-USA champion Western Kentucky Hilltoppers head back to the final to take on the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at L.T. Smith Stadium in Bowling Green, Ky.
No. 10 Oklahoma State (9-2, 7-1) at No. 9 Oklahoma (9-2, 8-0) (FOX, 12:30pm ET) While not an official Big 12 championship game (there will be one in 2017), today’s Bedlam rivalry matchup between the No. 10 Oklahoma State Cowboys and the No. 9 Oklahoma Sooners at Memorial Stadium in Norman will determine the conference champion.
SEC Championship Game: No. 1 Alabama (12-0, 8-0) vs. No. 15 Florida (8-3, 6-2) (CBS, 4pm ET) The undefeated Alabama Crimson Tide are a lock for the College Football Playoff, but they still won’t want a blemish on their record today as they take on the Florida Gators in the SEC Championship at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
Arkansas State (6-5, 6-1) at Texas State (2-9, 0-7) (ESPN2, 7:30pm ET) The Sun Belt Conference doesn’t have a championship game, but this matchup between the Arkansas State Red Wolves and the Texas State Bobcats in San Marcos, Texas, will help determine the conference champion. An Arkansas State win would put them in a tie with Appalachian State for first place in the league, and a win by Troy (9-2, 6-1) today at Georgia Southern (ESPN2, 12pm ET) would make it a three-way tie atop the standings.
Mountain West Championship Game: San Diego State (9-3, 6-2) at Wyoming (8-4, 6-2) (ESPN, 7:45pm ET) The Mountain West Championship Game at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie, Wyo., features a rematch of the thrilling regular-season game between the Wyoming Cowboys and the San Diego State Aztecs, won by the Cowboys 34-33.
ACC Championship Game: No. 3 Clemson (11-1, 7-1) vs. No. 23 Virginia Tech (9-3, 6-2) (ABC, 8pm ET) The No. 3 Clemson Tigers and star quarterback Deshaun Watson should qualify for the College Football Playoff if they can beat the No. 23 Virginia Tech Hokies in the ACC Championship Game at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla.
Big Ten Conference Championship Game: No. 6 Wisconsin (10-2, 7-2) vs. No. 7 Penn State (10-2, 8-1) (FOX, 8pm ET) An impressive season of Big Ten football concludes at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis as the No. 7 Penn State Nittany Lions play the No. 6 Wisconsin Badgers.
