Why spend Black Friday braving the annual rushes to the big department stores when you could instead stay home and watch the top collegiate football action on TV? Especially with the important list of games lined up for the regular season finale when the Week 13 schedule begins.
And there’s plenty to play for as most conference championship games are still sorting out their competitors and national college football playoff picks will take place a week beginning Sunday after the league title games reshuffled the deck.
