    There are some great games on the schedule as we enter the final weeks of Chompions League, Season 1. Here's what to watch for.​
    Virginia Tech vs. Florida State (Week 11)
    When the top two teams in the country meet up this week, it will likely be a preview of the ACC Championship Game. It will also be a battle of attrition as Florida State's E.J. Manuel attempts to put the finishing touches on his Heisman campaign against one of the nation's top defenses.​
    Auburn vs. Georgia (Week 11)
    Two extremely different storylines in this crossover SEC game. A win for Auburn would lock up the SEC West title and a spot in the conference championship game. Georgia will attempt to win their first user game of the season and stay afloat in the SEC East.​
    Wisconsin vs. Ohio State (Week 12)
    The final stretch of the Big Ten schedule is set up to be fascinating, and it all begins with Ohio State and Wisconsin doing battle in Madison. Ohio State needs to win out in order to play for the conference championship. A win for Wisconsin would secure a birth in the very same game.​
    Michigan vs. Iowa (Week 12)
    The Hawkeyes have flown under the radar all season, mostly due to their soft schedule, but they will likely be undefeated when they travel to Ann Arbor in Week 12. This could be a trap game for the Wolverines, who may be looking ahead to the showdown against Ohio State the following week. If Iowa wins this one, they could sneak in to the conference championship game.​
    Georgia vs. Georgia Tech (Week 13)
    This annual rivalry game won't have much of an impact on the BCS picture, but it will set the tone for the future of these two programs. Georgia Tech is still looking for a statement victory, having fallen in both of their marquee games this season. Georgia could be in a similar position if they fail to beat Auburn.​
    Florida State vs. Florida (Week 13)
    The likely SEC East and ACC Atlantic division champions will end their season with an out of conference showdown that could have some serious national championship implications. Florida will definitely be undefeated at this point, and even if Florida State loses to Virginia Tech in Week 11, they could sneak back into the title game by beating Florida and then Virginia Tech in the ACC Championship.​
    Ohio State vs. Michigan (Week 13)
    The only thing better than beating your most hated rival? Beating them and ruining their season. Michigan will have a chance to do just that if Ohio State beats Wisconsin in Week 12, as they will still need a win in the annual rivalry to secure a spot in the Big Ten title game.​
    Auburn vs. Alabama (Week 13)
    If Auburn loses to Georgia in Week 11, this game will likely help decide the SEC West Champion. But even if not, the Iron Bowl is one of the greatest rivalries in all of sports, and the Tide would surely like to turn around this disappointing season against their most hated rival.​
    USC vs. Notre Dame (Week 13)
    Notre Dame will have a chance to cap off an impressive season against an extremely talented USC squad that could still be a factor in the national championship picture. A win for Notre Dame will almost guarantee them a spot in a BCS game.​
    What game(s) are you most looking forward to, and how do you think it all plays out?​

    Great write up. I'm looking forward to the Florida-Florida St. game. That is a great rivalry! I'm also looking forward to the Michigan-Ohio st. game, another great rivalry!

    My BCS National Championship game prediction is Notre Dame vs. Florida St. That would be a great game against 2 teams with great tradition.

    Florida-Florida St. This is one of the best games ever played imo



    Florida St.-Notre Dame 1993 dubbed "Game of the Century"


    Michigan-Ohio St. What more needs to be said

    Really looking forward to the high possibility of two users in the NC. That is if someone can knock TCU off...

    When #1 and #2 meet, it's always the most anticipated game, but I'm really looking forward to seeing how the SEC plays out. That conference has been a toss up all year, and I'm excited to see how it'll end up

    All these game have some or major BCS bowl or conference championship implications. The one im looking forward to besides #1 vs #2 is the Wisconsin-Ohio State game. 2 games left and with 2 wins Ohio State gets in the BIG Ten Championship game. That would be one well deserved trip if Ohio State pulls it off.

    These are some good games! Florida-Florida St should be a good one florida st should be heavily favored tho. Tcu might sneak into the NC game they are rollin. They have some big games coming up but they are all simulations by computer so they might get luv. Wisconsin and Ohio state should be nice too big game there. This season is coming down to the last games which is good.
