Follow on Twitter Ah, rivalry week. Whether the games matter for postseason reasons or just for bragging rights, they matter. Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay have picked the ones they'll be watching most closely this week. Most likely to create College Football Playoff chaos: Alabama at Auburn (Saturday 3:30 ET, CBS) Kiper: Yes, I'm picking the Tigers, who are peaking at the right time, to win at home.

Status of TCU’s top two QBs up in the air for Baylor game

For a game with significant implications on a couple of levels, this is a little more than mildly intriguing, at least at this point in the week. If TCU handles one-win Baylor Friday, the Horned Frogs will play Oklahoma in the Big 12 championship game next Saturday. If they don’t, they could allow Iowa State to sneak into the title-game side door. With that much on the line, Gary Patterson seemingly confirmed Tuesday that both his top two quarterbacks, Kenny Hill and Shawn Robinson, are questionable for the Week 13 home game vs. the Bears with unspecified injuries. The day before, though, Patterson had labeled Hill as “closer to probable” with what’s believed to be a concussion.  Then again,

The playoff stakes for 10 biggest rivalry week games

Heather Dinich ESPN Senior Writer Close College football reporter Joined ESPN.com in 2007 Graduate of Indiana University Follow on Twitter With the exception of the switch between No. 2 Miami and No. 3 Clemson, the top 12 teams in the College Football Playoff selection committee's rankings stayed exactly the same Tuesday. Don't get too comfortable, not with rivalry week on deck. Three of the past five meetings between Ohio State and Michigan have been one-possession games. Nick Saban has never defeated an Auburn team that won nine games, going 0-6 (Auburn is 9-2 entering Saturday's showdown). Things are bound to change in Week 13. Here's a look at the 10 biggest games that will shape the committee's

Charles Barkley to serve as College GameDay’s guest picker ahead of huge Iron Bowl showdown

Really, could there be anybody else? As it’s the last full Saturday of the 2017 college football season, there are a handful of huge matchups with significant implications both nationally and conference-wise.  Given where each stands in the latest College Football Playoff rankings, however, there’s none bigger than No. 1 Alabama traveling to No. 6 Auburn in the latest edition of the Iron Bowl. Not surprisingly, ESPN‘s wildly popular College GameDay pregame show had previously announced that it would set up shop on The Plains for the rivalry game.  And just as much of a non-surprise is the show’s designated guest picker. Charles Barkley, of course, played his college basketball at Auburn and has
