This is it, the last chance for college football madness this season. Apart from Georgia, whose place in the College Football Playoff seems secure even with a loss in the SEC title game (come on, the Bulldogs aren’t losing to Georgia Tech), there isn’t a whole lot of security among the top four of the rankings. Would the committee consider a two-loss Ohio State or Alabama over an unbeaten Cincinnati? What about Notre Dame, which is playing its best ball of the season, or Oklahoma State, which is a three-point loss to Iowa State away from being undefeated?

Here’s a rundown of the extended Thanksgiving weekend action.

We’re going to be brutally frank here: Friday’s lineup stinks. The best of the bunch is probably Boise State-San Diego State, for both novelty reasons — the game kicks off at 9 a.m. local time in California and will be played at a soccer stadium in Carson, Calif. — and because the Broncos can spoil the Aztecs’ hope of playing in the Mountain West championship game with a win (as long as Fresno State also beats San Jose State on Thanksgiving afternoon). Boise State already has two road wins over top 25 foes this season, beating BYU on Oct. 9 and Fresno State on Nov. 6, and comes in having won four straight. San Diego State has allowed an average of just 17 points over its past three games against middling-to-bad offenses (Nevada, UNLV and Hawaii), but Boise State’s defense has been similarly stout of late: The Broncos have allowed an opponent to top 19 points just once since early October. Expect an early-morning rock fight.

Ah yes, it’s time for Ohio State-Michigan, a rivalry so storied that HBO once made a documentary about it but also one so lopsided of late that no one is clamoring for an update. Ohio State has won all but three of the matchups since 2000, including the past eight (by an average of more than two touchdowns, no less). Coach Jim Harbaugh has cobbled together his fourth 10-win season at Michigan, success that 90 percent of all other programs would covet, but another loss to That School Down South will send the Wolverines and their fans into yet another existential offseason crisis. This year’s matchup features an incandescent Ohio State offense — it is No. 1 nationally in SP+ efficiency and was last seen robbing Michigan State of its very soul in the span of about three minutes Saturday — against a Michigan defense that has allowed 18 points or less in nine of its 11 games this season. Whether the Wolverines’ offense can keep up is an entirely different matter. Michigan is just 72nd nationally in offensive explosiveness, a measure of big plays. …

Ah yes, it’s time for Alabama-Auburn, a rivalry so storied that ESPN once made a documentary about it. But unlike Ohio State-Michigan, the Iron Bowl has been sporadically competitive this century, with the Tigers winning four of the past 11 meetings, including three of the past four played on the Plains. A victory this year might be too much to ask, however: Auburn comes in having lost three straight, including a dismal defeat at South Carolina on Nov. 20 in which the Tigers jumped out to a 14-0 first-quarter lead but scored only three more points the rest of the way in a 21-17 loss. One more loss would give Auburn consecutive six-win seasons, the first time the Tigers have gone two straight seasons with fewer than seven victories since 1998 and 1999. The Crimson Tide, meanwhile, probably isn’t looking past its limping rivals to its looming SEC title game meeting with Georgia. A loss Saturday would doom Alabama to a playoff-less season. …

Ah yes, it’s time for Oklahoma-Oklahoma State, a rivalry so storied that … well, it looks as if no one has gotten around to making a Bedlam documentary yet (Oklahoma has won 16 of the past 19 in the series). But this year’s matchup is packed with meaning. If the Sooners win, the two in-state rivals will play again in the Big 12 championship game Dec. 4. If the Cowboys win, we would still get a Bedlam rematch in the conference title game if Texas Tech beats Baylor (if the Bears win and Sooners lose, Oklahoma State will play Baylor in the title game). At only 5.6 yards per play, the Cowboys’ offense isn’t exactly lighting it up, but when your defense allows only 4.3 yards per play (fourth nationally), people tend to pay attention. The Sooners have won six games by a touchdown or less this season, a program record. Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams has been a little tentative with the ball of late, perhaps because he has been sacked seven times and thrown three interceptions in the last two games. This is less than ideal: Oklahoma State leads the nation with 42 sacks.
