Watch Pac-12 Championship Game 2023

Watch Oregon vs. Washington | ABC

The Huskies made it through the regular season with an undefeated record but won multiple games by the skin of their teeth. As a reward, they’ll face off against an 11–1 Oregon Ducks club that’s on a six-game win streak and more than capable of avenging their early-season loss to Washington. And if that wasn’t enough, the winner of this rematch will also get a playoff spot.

Watch Big 12 Championship Game 2023

Watch Oklahoma State vs. Texas | ABC

Texas returns to the Big 12 Championship Game and faces off against a Cowboys team that’s experienced ample highs and lows over the regular season’s second half. Texas fans are right outside the playoff bracket, but they could potentially sneak in if they win against Oklahoma State and a few upset wins happen elsewhere this weekend.

Watch SEC Championship Game 2023

Watch Georgia vs. Alabama | CBS

Every Georgia vs. Alabama matchup has ample postseason implications, and this year’s SEC Championship Game is no exception. Once again, the Bulldogs are entering the postseason with a lengthy win streak and national championship aspirations.

This year’s Alabama team is more inconsistent than past clubs, but they’ll still be Georgia’s toughest opponent this season by a considerable margin. The Crimson Tide were also responsible for Georgia’s most recent loss, which was in the 2021 SEC Championship Game, and they could sneak into the playoffs if they upset Georgia.

Watch ACC Championship Game 2023

Watch Louisville vs. Florida State | ABC

Texas, Oregon, and Alabama fans should watch this game, which offers the biggest potential for playoff bracket chaos this weekend.

Florida State’s still reeling from quarterback Jordan Travis’ season-ending injury, and backup Tate Rodemaker was a non-factor in last week’s win over Florida. Louisville was upset by Kentucky, but if the 10–2 Cards get past Florida State, they’ll potentially create an opening for the last playoff bracket spot.

Despite a litany of injuries and offensive struggles, the Hawkeyes still finished the regular season with a solid 10–2 record. As for Michigan, they’ll get back coach Jim Harbaugh from his three-game suspension, and they’ll be warming themselves up ahead of a likely playoff run.
