USC Trojans at UCLA Bruins
All that preseason chatter about Matt Barkley coming back to win a national championship sounds a little bit silly with No. 21 Southern California needing to beat No. 16 UCLA at the Rose Bowl on Saturday just to win its half of the Pac-12.
Oklahoma Sooners at West Virginia Mountaineers
Oklahoma still has slim hopes of winning the Big 12 Conference if Kansas State stumbles badly, but the No. 12 Sooners are also in contention for a BCS bowl bid as they head to West Virginia to visit the reeling Mountaineers on Saturday.
Kansas State Wildcats at Baylor Bears
Expect plenty of offense when No. 2 Kansas State - No. 1 in the BCS standings - travels to Baylor for a Big 12 showdown Saturday night.
Ohio State Buckeyes at Wisconsin Badgers
Despite trailing Ohio State by two games and being tied with Penn State in the Big Ten Leaders Division, Wisconsin has already secured a place in the conference’s championship game.
Virginia Tech Hokies at Boston College Eagles
Virginia Tech is in danger of not playing in a bowl game for the first time since 1992 as it visits Boston College on Saturday.
NFL Week 11
Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins
Expectations for Sunday's contest between the Philadelphia Eagles and host Washington Redskins experienced a considerable hit after Michael Vick sustained a concussion last week.
Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions
The Green Bay Packers entered their bye as one of the league's hottest teams and came out of it having inched closer to the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears. The Packers will look to ride the momentum as they seek their fifth consecutive win against the host Detroit Lions.
Cleveland Browns at Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys entered the season with aspirations of a Super Bowl championship. They'll settle for decidedly more modest goals - a second straight win and reaching the .500 mark - when they host the struggling Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots
Winners of four straight, the Indianapolis Colts take a step up in competition when they visit Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in a marquee matchup on Sunday.
Plus Steve's thoughts on the impact of Lakers coaching change, and how to handicap basketball games hosted on maritime vessels.
