#7 Baylor Bears (11-1) at* #6 Oklahoma Sooners (11-1)
12pm ET/9am PT, ABC
* - Game to be played at AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas
Halftime of this one. Could be playing for the final playoff spot with #5 Utah losing last night if #2 LSU beats #4 Georgia in the SEC Championship.
Credit to Baylor Head Coach Matt Rhule. He’s done a fantastic job this year navigating the Big XII without a ton of NFL-caliber talent among his most experienced players.
OU though is loaded. WR CeeDee Lamb might have the best YAC skills in the country. LB Kenneth Murray is a fantastic prospect. And obviously QB Jalen Hurts will find a home at this level.
#20 Cincinnati Bearcats (10-2) at #17 Memphis Tigers (11-1)

Good one here. Cincy’s only blemish all season was a loss to #1 Ohio St...until last week when they lost to Memphis in the regular season finale. Rematch!
For Memphis, it’s an interesting turn since Head Coach Mike Norvell was announced to be taking the job at Florida State next year. Can he get another performance (or two) out of his guys before leaving?
#4 Georgia Bulldogs (11-1) at* #1 LSU Tigers (12-0)
4pm ET/1pm PT, CBS
* - Game to be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia
TONS of NFL talent here.
LSU QB Joe Burrow, S Grant Delpit and CB Kristian Fulton could all be first-round picks. EDGE K’Lavon Chaisson could be a potential selection for the Los Angeles Rams on Day 2. And ILB Jacob Phillips is going to remind a lot of people of Rams ILB Micah Kiser.
For Georgia, LT Andrew Thomas might be the first lineman off the board and could go as high as...well, I suppose #1 overall. RB D’Andre Swift is a fantastic talent, but I do wonder if his shoulder injury that he re-aggravated last week is going to hamper him today. He might need surgery before the combine. QB Jake Fromm is an interesting pocket passer prospect. Interested to see where he lands. LB Monty Rice is another Rams option. And if RS sophomore CB Eric Stokes declares, he’s got nice size for a corner.
