CFB Preview Guide: Week Twelve

Michigan bye week blues, Canada has their own version of Beer Pong, A Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion, The Dumb and Dumber Sequel is finally here and the full breakdown of College Football games!

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

Upsets.  Upsets.  Upsets.

That was the theme in Week 11 of the College Football season, with team after team seeing their Playoff dreams crash and burn.

Notre Dame played it's worst game of the season, and possibly one of the worst games of the Brian Kelly era.

Michigan State got throttled at home against Ohio State and showed that they were overrated and a fraud when it comes to being one of the best teams in the nation.  Michigan State is a solid team, and when a possible 10-win regular season is looked at as a failure, that shows how far Mark Dantonio has brought that program.  The Spartans won't be in the Playoff, they won't be going to the Rose Bowl and won't be in the Big Ten championship game.  They're left to look forward to a possible New Year's Day bowl game.

Alabama had some late game heroics and won an overtime slugfest at LSU.  Winning a game at night in Baton Rouge is next to impossible, even though Les Miles' Tigers are young and not the usual powerhouse.  The Crimson Tide live to fight another day.

WHERE THINGS STAND

The rankings are out and if you live in the state of Alabama, you are furious.

It's the end of the world because Alabama currently doesn't reside in the Final Four.

Alabama hosts #1 Missisippi State this weekend and if they win, they'll be in the Final 4 and arguably one of the Top 2 spots.  There is still a lot of season left to be decided, so those SEC fans need to realize that the College Football Playoff isn't determined before Thanksgiving.

We can agree with the man on one thing.

On to the next one...

CFB WEEK 12 SCHEDULE

Saturday, November 15th

COLLEGE GAMEDAY SITE

SOUTH CAROLINA @ FLORIDA - 12 P.M. EST. - SEC NETWORK

For any Michigan fan, the Florida Gators are the most important team to pay attention to outside the Big Ten.

The Gators team has underperformed and Coach Will Muschamp is on the hot seat.  Even though Florida has rebounded as of late and upset Georgia a few weeks ago, there is still a lot left to be decided.

Florida and Michigan might be at odds with one another after the season if they both decide to fire their coaches.

The Gators still have a shot to save Muschamp's job and if they continue to finish the season strong, who knows what will happen.

#8 OHIO STATE @ #25 MINNESOTA - 12 P.M. EST. - ABC

Ohio State might not be the Final 4 of the College Football playoffs yet, but it's a work in progress.

OSU bashed Michigan State last week and displayed one of the most impressive victories of any time in College Football this season.

Minnesota is the surprise team in the Big Ten and a team like TCU, who beat Minnesota earlier this year, will be rooting for the Golden Gophers to pull off the upset and crash the Buckeyes dreams.


#19 CLEMSON @ #22 GEORGIA TECH - 12 P.M. EST. - ESPN

Clemson is trying to come on strong after a disappointing start to the season.

Georgia Tech is 8-2 and with games remaining against Clemson and Georgia, they've got their work cut out for them to get to 10 wins.

#1 MISSISSIPPI STATE @ #5 ALABAMA - 3:30 P.M. EST. - CBS

#16 NEBRASKA @ #20 WISCONSIN - 3:30 P.M. EST. - ABC
