Greetings, football fans! This is conference championship weekend, and there are several premier matchups to enjoy! Friday night kicked off the championship games with that school up in Seattle winning the Pac-12 title over Utah.

Today starts off with the Big 12 Championship between Oklahoma and Texas. The Longhorns defeated the Sooners earlier in the season in the Red River Rivalry, but they meet again with an even bigger prize on the line.

Later on, UCF and Memphis meet with the American Conference title on the line. UCF’s quarterback, McKenzie Milton, suffered a Bridgewater-like knee injury last week and it remains to be seen if he ever plays again, but UCF is a tough out even without him.

The SEC Championship will be decided at Robotic Butthole Stadium between Alabama and Georgia, in what will be Bama’s biggest test this season. Can they win two straight over the Dawgs after beating them in the Playoff Final last season?

Clemson will take on Pitt in the ACC Championship Game in front of about 15 people and just need to not royally screw up. Clemson could move into the 1-seed in the Playoff if Alabama slips up.

In the Big Ten title game, Ohio Steak takes on Northwestern, who doesn’t really know why they’re there but sure enjoys the swag bags given out for the participants in the game.

Also, Cal-Stanford! Someone get that Axe and chop down the trees before they all catch on fire again for God’s sake.
