It’s rivalry week in college football, with nearly every game containing lots of meaning for the schools — either for emotional reasons or more tangible ones — bowl eligibility, conference championship hopes.

One game stands above the rest, however: Unbeaten Michigan and Ohio State will clash in Columbus, with a spot in the Big Ten championship game and almost certainly the College Football Playoff on the line. It’ll be the last meeting of unbeaten teams until the CFP starts and a true clash of college football titans. It’s also rumored the teams don’t like each other much.

Ohio State is an early-week 7½-point favorite at Caesars Sportsbook.

There are other important games, notably No. 5 USC against No. 13 Notre Dame and No. 4 TCU against Iowa State. The Trojans and Horned Frogs are both favored and must win to keep their CFP hopes alive; if they do, they’ll go into championship week likely needing just one more win to reach the playoff.

In the SEC, the championship game matchup is decided, but No. 6 LSU (-9½) needs to beat Texas A&M to keep its national title hopes alive, and No. 1 Georgia can finish off its second consecutive unbeaten regular season. Rare is the week where the Iron Bowl between Auburn and Alabama is on the national undercard.

Here’s a complete Week 13 rivalry week schedule with TV information and a list of the available point spreads and over/under totals at Caesars Sportsbook:
