The best games

No. 4 TCU in Baylor – Noon on Fox, fubo TV (Try for free): The Horned Frogs – who, according to the number in front of their name in this paragraph and the college football playoff standings on this website (and all websites) – are still the fourth ranked team in the country. However, they are just a 2.5 point favorite on a Baylor team that is 6-4 and just got smoked 31-3 by Kansas State. I’m 7-1-1 against the spread this year, which makes this spread all the more curious. Does anyone in the desert know something the rest of us don’t?

Illinois at No. 4 Michigan — noon on ABC, fubo TV (Try for free): The Fighting Illini stayed in the top 25 for most of the month, but returned to Earth in November. Can the Wolverines build on and keep the momentum going before their showdown with No. 2 Ohio State next week? Las Vegas seems to think so. They’re the 17.5-point favorites going into the matchup, which tells you everything you need to know about how the oddsmakers view both teams.

#1 Georgia at Kentucky — 3:30 pm on CBS, CBSSports.com, CBS Sports app: The Wildcats were in the top 10 after Week 4, but have lost four of their last six as the offense struggled to move the ball consistently in the air. They’re facing a robust Bulldogs defense that would love nothing more than to make a big statement during rivalry weekend and the SEC Championship Game. Also, it will be interesting to see how Bulldogs quarterback Stetson Bennett IV fares on the road.

No. 7 USC at No. 16 UCLA — 8:00 pm on Fox, fubo TV (Try for free): The Trojans will pit their CFP hopes against an offensively dangerous Bruins team with quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson and running back Zach Charbonnet to lead the charge. This will also be an opportunity for Trojans quarterback Caleb Williams to make a Heisman Trophy claim, especially with running back Travis Dye out with an injury.

#10 Utah at No. 12 Oregon — 10:30 pm on ESPN, fubo TV (Try for free): The Ducks saw their 23-game home winning streak snapped last week against Washington, but this week they have to get back on track against a Utes team that is looking to win its second straight Pac-12 championship. The Ducks are underdogs by 2 points at home, which is pretty incredible considering how tough it is to play at Autzen Stadium, despite last week’s loss.
