College Football Schedule, 2022 Games: What to Watch in Week 12, TV Channels, Saturday Showtimes

College football’s penultimate regular season Saturday is just around the corner, and with it comes a host of intriguing games that could have a huge impact on the sport’s landscape en route to rivalries and championship weekends. No. No. 1 Georgia will try to keep its spotless record alive Saturday against a tottering Kentucky team in the SEC on CBS Game of the Week, while No. 4 TCU will try to do the same in the early window at Baylor.

Meanwhile, out west in the Pac-12, there are two huge games coming up as No. 7 USC clashes with No. 16 UCLA and No. 10 Utah battles No. 12 Oregon in Eugene. Both matchups will have a big say in who makes a trip to the conference championship game the first weekend in December.

There are plenty of other scenarios that can frame the final weeks of the college football season. It’s going to be a busy Saturday across the country, so here’s a handy viewing guide to help you navigate the action. All times Eastern.

The best games

No. 4 TCU in Baylor – afternoon on Fox, fuboTV (Try for free): The Horned Frogs — who, according to the number before their name in this section and the College Football Playoff Rankings on this website (and any website) — are still the fourth-ranked team in the nation. Still, they are just a 2.5-point favorite over a Baylor team that is 6-4 and has just been smoked 31-3 by Kansas State. They are 7-1-1 against the spread this year, which makes this spread even more curious. Does anyone in the desert know something the rest of us don’t?

Illinois at No. 4 Michigan – Afternoon on ABC, fuboTV (Try for free): The Fighting Illini lingered in the top 25 for the better part of a month, but crashed back to Earth in November. Can the Wolverines capitalize and maintain momentum ahead of their showdown with No. 2 Ohio State next week? Las Vegas seems to think so. They’re 17.5-point favorites heading into the matchup, which tells you everything you need to know about how oddsmakers view both teams.

No. 1 Georgia in Kentucky — 3:30 p.m. on CBS, CBSSports.com, CBS Sports App: The Wildcats were in the top 10 after Week 4, but lost four of their last six as the offense struggled to move the ball consistently through the air. They’re up against a tough Bulldogs defense that wants nothing more than to make a big statement during the rivalry weekend and the SEC Championship Game. Plus, it will be interesting to see how Bulldogs quarterback Stetson Bennett IV fares on the road.

No. 7 USC at No. 16 UCLA — 8 p.m. on Fox, fuboTV (Try for free): The Trojans are about to risk their CFP hopes against a Bruins team that is extremely dangerous offensively with quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson and running back Zach Charbonnet leading the charge. This will also be a chance for Trojan quarterback Caleb Williams to make a case for the Heisman Trophy – especially with Travis Dye dropping back with an injury.

No. 10 Utah at No. 12 Oregon — 10:30 p.m. on ESPN, fuboTV (Try for free): The Ducks saw their 23-game winning streak snap against Washington last week, but need to get back on track this week against a Utes team seeking its second straight Pac-12 championship. The Ducks are 2-point underdogs at home, which is pretty incredible considering how hard it is to play at Autzen Stadium, despite losing last week.
