Todays College Football Thread (Conference Championship Game Edition)

Last night Oregon beat UCLA in the Pac 12 Championship Game and Northern Illinois beat Ohio in the MAC Championship Game. TCU has won the Mountain West championship, Louisiana Tech has won the WAC, and Arkansas State has won the Sun Belt. Today there are more conference championships on the line:

Conference USA Championship Game (noon eastern)
#24 Southern Miss at #6 Houston. If Houston wins, they get a spot in a BCS bowl.

SEC Championship Game (4 pm eastern)
#1 LSU vs. #14 Georgia in the Georgia Dome.

(De facto) Big 12 Championship Game (8 pm eastern)
#10 Oklahoma at #3 Oklahoma State. This isnt officially a conference championship game, but the winner will win the Big 12 Championship. If OSU wins, they win the conference championship outright, get their first-ever BCS Bowl, and have an outside chance at the BCS Championship Game. If Oklahoma wins, then OU and OSU (and perhaps Kansas State, if they beat Iowa State today) are co-champions at 7-2, but Oklahoma gets the BCS bid based on the head-to-head win(s).

ACC Championship Game (8 pm eastern)
#20 Clemson and #5 Virginia Tech play in Charlotte. (Clemson won the regular season game 23-3.)

Big 10 Championship Game (8:17 pm eastern)
#15 Michigan State and #13 Wisconsin play at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis. Michigan State beat Wisconsin earlier this season on a last-second hail mary pass.

Big East Championship
West Virginia and Rutgers have clinched a share of the Big East championship. If Cincinnati beats UConn today (noon eastern), they will also share the title. West Virginia would win the tiebreaker as the highest-ranked of the three teams. If Cincinnati loses to UConn, then Louisville would win the tiebreaker, having beaten West Virginia.

One other game of note: #22 Texas at #17 Baylor.

So who does your team play? What games are you looking forward to?
