College Football Week 13 Saturday Schedule: OSU-Michigan, Wisconsin-Minnesota, and the Iron Bowl

It’s arguably the best day of the college football season, as the final spots in conference title games are decided.

The final day of College Football’s regular season is upon us. With it comes a slew of big rivalry games, including the most-played rivalry in the FBS. That game is, of course, Wisconsin-Minnesota, the winner of whom takes possession of Paul Bunyan’s Axe - arguably the greatest trophy in the sport.

And although Wisconsin clinched a spot in the Big Ten Championship game and can keep its Playoff hopes alive with a win at home today over the rival Gophers, it is not an elimination game on both sides. That honor goes to one contest - Ohio State-Michigan. Ten years ago, these two teams met at Ohio Stadium ranked #1 and #2, and this year they come in at the second and third spots in the rankings, but each with a single loss. The loser will be eliminated from the Big Ten title race, and with two losses that will knock them out of playoff contention.

The Big Ten East will be decided at some point today - a Michigan win sends them to Indianapolis, but if Ohio State wins, they will need to wait a few hours to find out if they will go to Lucas Oil Stadium next week. That would depend on the Michigan State-Penn State game, as Penn State holds the tiebreaker over Ohio State.

Again, here are the possibilities:

Michigan wins: Michigan wins B1G East
Ohio State wins and Penn State wins: Penn State wins B1G East
Ohio State wins and Penn State loses: Ohio State wins B1G East

Finally, the SEC West is decided already, and Alabama can lose today to rival Auburn and likely still make the playoff. However, Nick Saban’s team will still be plenty motivated to keep their undefeated season intact.

Tune in all day long with us here at APC for a thrilling day of College Football!
