College football schedule, games 2022: What to watch in Week 14, TV channels, Saturday kickoff times

An exciting 2022 college football regular season has come to a close, so now is the time to separate the contenders from the contenders as championship week lies ahead. As bowl season approaches, college football playoff standings and conference braggart rights are at stake across the country. So it’s time to get down to business.

No. 3 TCU will have the most pressure on his shoulders on Saturday. The Horned Frogs are down 12-0, but a loss to No. 10 Kansas State could make Sunday’s CFP selection show interesting as No. 5 Ohio State and No. 6 Alabama are already in the clubhouse without division championships. Georgia #1 will face No. 14 LSU in the SEC championship game on CBS, and Michigan No. 2 will face unranked Purdue in the Big Ten championship game with the CFP seeding at stake

There are many other scenarios that can bring the national cover into focus. It’s going to be a busy Saturday across the country, so here’s a handy viewer’s guide to help you navigate the action. All times Easter.

The best games

No. 10 Kansas State vs. No. 3 TCU (Big 12 Championship Game in Arlington, Texas) – Noon on ABC, fuboTV (Try it for free): The Horned Frogs have achieved victories in a variety of ways. Star quarterback Max Duggan can light up the scoreboard with his wealth of receiving talent, running back Kendre Miller can hammer the rock and the defense — though inconsistent — has stalled their end of the bargain on numerous occasions. The Wildcats took a 28-10 lead earlier this season when they played the regular season, and they should be out for revenge at AT&T Stadium.

No. 14 LSU vs. No. 1 Georgia (SEC Championship Game in Atlanta) – 4 p.m. on CBS,, CBS Sports App: The Bulldogs likely picked up a CFP berth, but that program hasn’t won an SEC title since 2017. That’s the specific goal for every team going into the season because it’s the one that teams can actually control before the CFP selection committee makes the playoff decision. That counts. The Bulldogs have played their rivals at times this season, and the Tigers are suffering an embarrassing loss at Texas A&M. With Michigan hot on the Bulldogs’ heels, a few style points could help them stay atop the CFP rankings.

UCF #22 at Tulane #18 (AAC Championship Game) – 4 p.m. on ABC, fuboTV (Try it for free): Hosting the AAC championship game for the first time in its history, the Green Wave will attempt to avenge a November 12 loss to the Knights. This game will likely determine which team brings the Group of Five into a new year’s six-bowl game.

Purdue vs. No. 2 Michigan (Big Ten Championship Game in Indianapolis) – 8 p.m. on Fox, fuboTV (Try it for free): The Wolverines are looking for their second straight Big Ten title and CFP berth in an impressive two-year span from coach Jim Harbaugh. Donovan Edwards was phenomenal on the spot in place of a limited Blake Corum and now Edwards as JJ McCarthy has to be the No. 1 option after Corum’s leg injury knocked him out for the year. The Boilermakers must pull off one of the biggest upsets of the year to lift this trophy at Lucas Oil Stadium.

#9 Clemson vs. #23 North Carolina (ACC Championship Game in Charlotte) – 8 p.m. on ABC, fuboTV (Try it for free): The Tigers are looking to get back on top in their biggest game of the season and fix their inconsistent offense. DJ Uiagalelei wasn’t the superstar many expected, but a conference title will be a nice way to end a disappointing season. The Tar Heels are looking for their first ACC title since 1980, which will make this a wild scene for a desperate program begging for success under legendary coach Mack Brown.

The best of the rest
