    This week's top games, featuring the SportsJournalists.com poll, Sportsbook.ag's early lines and p.m. Eastern times unless noted:

    Thursday, Nov. 29

    Louisville at Rutgers (-3), 7:30, ESPN
    The Big East Conference championship will be decided by this game. Feel free to shrug at any time.

    Friday, Nov. 30

    No. 19 Northern Illinois (-3) vs. No. 18 Kent State, in Detroit, 7, ESPN2
    Mid-American Conference championship: These teams lost to Iowa and Kentucky. The winner of this game could sneak into a BCS bowl. Les Miles and Kevin Sumlin and Steve Spurrier haven't been told about this scenario. That's a good thing.

    No. 16 UCLA at No. 9 Stanford (-8½), 8, Fox
    Pac-12 Conference championship: Jim L. Mora now is wondering if there was a way to lose by enough points last week to get to face Washington State for the Rose Bowl bid.

    Saturday, Dec. 1

    No. 12 Oklahoma (-7) at TCU, 12, ESPN
    Bob Stoops hears his team might have to face Florida in New Orleans if it wins. He's having flashbacks and discussing strategy with Mora.

    No. 25 Oklahoma State (-4½) at Baylor, 12, FX
    Dan Beebe shakes his head at Iowa State and Baylor derailing the Big 12 Conference's national championship shots the past two seasons.

    Central Florida at Tulsa (-1), 12, ESPN2
    Conference USA championship: George O'Leary has informed the BCS that the Knights would be in the top 14 if they win.

    Nicholls State at No. 17 Oregon State, 2:30
    This rivals every Big East game for most meaningless of the season.

    Middle Tennessee at Arkansas State (-10), 3
    Everyone in attendance at this Sun Belt Conference de facto championship game will be wearing Razorbacks T-shirts. This mostly is true of any Red Wolves game, though.

    No. 21 Boise State (-9½) at Nevada, 3:30, ABC
    The Broncos still could wander into a BCS bowl if everything breaks right. Of course it will.

    No. 2 Alabama (-7) vs. No. 3 Georgia, in Atlanta, 4, CBS
    Southeastern Conference championship: So close, no matter how far. Couldn't be much more from the heart. Forever trust in who we are. And nothing else matters.

    No. 23 Texas at No. 7 Kansas State (-11½), 8, ABC
    Collin Klein needs about eight touchdowns to win the Heisman Trophy. The Longhorns might allow that many.

    No. 13 Florida State (-14) vs. Georgia Tech, in Charlotte, 8, ESPN
    Atlantic Coast Conference championship: Who doesn't want to see a Georgia Tech-Kent State Orange Bowl?

    No. 14 Nebraska (-3) vs. Wisconsin, in Indianapolis, Fox
    Big Ten Conference championship: If Tom Osborne were in his last season, these Cornhuskers would be headed for the title game.

    Bridgewater will put up 400 yards. Louisville.
    Stanford in a shutout.
    Oklahoma State over.

    This was supposed to be the year Boise came back to reality. Instead they're 9-2 and lost both games by 6 total points. And in only 1 of their 9 wins have they given up more than 14. Nevada scores and gives up points. Take the over.

    I say Georgia. Nina says Alabama. Listen to Nina.

    Kansas State by 25.

    WAY over.

    Neither team can stop the other team with a gun and a badge.

    The total for OSU and Baylor is......86.5.

    Good God.

    I would still take the over. Seriously.

    Oklahoma State's defense is a myth, and Briles doesn't give a piss if they score or not, he just wants the ball back so they can score pronto.

    A McCoy is back a quarterback. No way Texas is losing to Kansas State.

    OK. Not really. Just thought it was odd when I read last night that McCoy was starting - but then again, I've seen like I Texas game all year, so what do I know.

    Johnny Dangerously just slapped a lumberjack and doesn't know why.

    And I've only seen like II Texas games, so I don't know a whole lot more than you.

    Haha, no clue why I did roman numerals there. Brain fart, I guess. Well, let's just run with it :)

    Colt McCoy went 0-2 as a starter against much worse KSU teams.

    I'm not sure either, since JD went to McNeese and timber fallers in Oregon are called loggers.
