Game of the Weeks: #1 Alabama at #13 LSU and #10 Nebraska at #6 Ohio State

The two games between ranked teams naturally have potentially big implications.

Alabama has no losses in the SEC West, keeping them ahead of LSU, Auburn and Texas A&M. Alabama has already dispatched the Aggies, but a loss to LSU would make the season finale Iron Bowl an SEC semi-final game. Alabama will likely have their way with LSU and Auburn, but in three of the next five weeks (we'll just assume they make the SEC Championship Game), they have a potential stumbling block.

For Ohio State, coming off a major upset to Penn State, the Nebraska game is a must win. A loss will all but eliminate them from the Big 10 Championship Game as the Eastern Division champion and hand the spot to undefeated Michigan, who they play in the season finale. It's also a must win for Nebraska, who lead the West by a game. A loss will move them into a potential four way tie for the division, with Wisconsin having the head to head tie breaker over them. This is in many ways a playoff game for both teams. A win won't get them anything, but a loss will basically eliminate them.

BCS Playoff upset watch

Barring an upset in their title games, two of the four playoff spots will be represented by the SEC and the Big Ten. That leaves two spots up for grabs for probably two but perhaps four teams.

#5 Washington at California. Washington looks to be running away with the Pac 12 until their Apple Cup season finale. But California shouldn't be overlooked. They have knocked off the two ranked teams they have faced, then #11 Texas 50-43, and then #18 Utah 28-23. They've gone 2-4 in their other games. They have one of the worst defenses in the country, but one of the highest scoring offenses. At home against a Huskies team that narrowly defeated Utah last week, this is one to keep an eye on.

#2 Clemson should sleep walk through the rest of their regular season, and #3 Michigan should until they end the season vs Ohio State.
