Michigan-Ohio State, Oklahoma-Oklahoma State headline Week 13 – The Athletic

Only one more set of games separates college football’s regular season from championship weekend and selection day for the College Football Playoff. But fear not, it’s rivalry week, and that means there are more than a few big matchups to look forward to. And, of course, plenty of CFP implications on the line.

One program that won’t have to worry about the Playoff is Oregon. The Ducks were stomped 38-7 by Utah last week, all but guaranteeing the Pac-12’s omission from the semifinals once again while opening the door for Cincinnati, Michigan and potentially the Big 12’s champion. Cincinnati can’t move the needle much this week at East Carolina, but Michigan and Oklahoma State both have great opportunities to earn a statement win.

The Wolverines are up first, getting a crack at Ohio State in Ann Arbor with a division title on the line. Considering the vice grip the Buckeyes have on the Big Ten, this feels like the biggest game of the Jim Harbaugh era. Later in the day, Oklahoma State hosts Oklahoma for the 108th playing of Bedlam. The Cowboys already have a spot in next week’s Big 12 Championship Game, so Saturday is a chance for Mike Gundy’s team to earn some respect in this rivalry and also send the Sooners packing.

Take a closer look at the betting lines and breakdowns for both of those matchups, as well as more of this week’s top games below.
