    I figured the Bowl-a-Rama thread (which someone else created Sunday) would serve as the de facto championship week thread, so I didn't bother creating one. But people are still posting in the Week 14 thread for whatever reason.

    Anyway, here goes, and sorry it's late ...

    This week's schedule with TV info and updated odds (all times Eastern):


    Louisville (-3.5) at Cincinnati, 7:30 p.m., ESPN


    MAC Championship at Detroit: Bowling Green (+3.5) vs. Northern Illinois, 8 p.m., ESPN


    Oklahoma (+9.5) at Oklahoma State, noon, ABC

    UCF at SMU, noon, ESPN --- no line, not sure why.

    Conference USA championship: Marshall (-4.5) at Rice, noon, ESPN2

    Texas (+15) at Baylor, 3:30 p.m., Fox

    SEC championship at Atlanta: Missouri (+2) vs. Auburn, 4 p.m., CBS

    Pac-12 championship: Stanford (+3) at Arizona State, 7:45 p.m., ESPN

    ACC championship at Charlotte: Duke (+29) vs. Florida State, 8 p.m., ABC

    Big Ten championship at Indianapolis: Ohio State (-5.5) vs. Michigan State, 8:17 p.m., Fox

    Mountain West championship: Utah State (+3.5) at Fresno State, 10 p.m., CBS

    Louisville just beat Cincinnati 31-24 in overtime, which clinches the AAC championship and a BCS bowl for Central Florida.

    Bridgewater finished the game strong ... had a couple great plays in the 4Q to rally the Cards into overtime.

    Ended up being a good game.

    Mizzou is the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division Champion and will be playing in the SEC Championship game tomorrow.

    Just wanted to point that out in case you've been watching/listening to too much sports TV/radio since the Iron Bowl.

    [/butthurt fanboi] [/still shocked MU is in the league, much less playing for a championship.]

    Don't know if it's the hat or the socks that I find more amusing ...

    Notre Dame to the Pinstripe Bowl:


    When's the last time the Irish played at Yankee Stadium?

    I think they played Army there in 2010.

    Ohio State's Marcus "Double Birds" Hall won't start the Big Ten title game. Knowing Meyer, he'll sit him for one play.

    Missouri in the SEC still requires some getting used to.

    I think Meyer means Hall isn't on the kick coverage or return unit.

    Well, thank you, Bowling Green, say the Oregon Ducks, which figure to benefit the most from the egg Northern Illinois is laying in the MAC Championship Game.
