Wisconsin loses if … South Carolina’s monster defensive end Jadeveon Clowney helps the Gamecocks control the line of scrimmage, intensifying pressure on Wisconsin’s sophomore quarterback Joel Stave.
Michigan State (12-1) vs. Stanford (11-1)
4 p.m. today, ESPN
Line: Stanford by 6 ½
Michigan State wins if … sophomore quarterback Connor Cook makes big plays, as he did against Ohio State in the Big Ten title game. Both teams have terrific defenses and strong running games, so Cook and Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan could be the difference.
Michigan State loses if … the Spartans can’t overcome Max Bullough’s suspension. The senior middle linebacker was a team captain and had started 40 consecutive games. The timing couldn’t be worse, facing a Stanford team that loves running between the tackles.
Ohio State (12-1) vs. Clemson (10-2)
7 p.m. Friday, ESPN
Line: Ohio State by 3
Ohio State wins if … the Buckeyes can slow Clemson’s passing game despite possibly not having cornerback Bradley Roby and top pass rusher Noah Spence. Otherwise Tahj Boyd, Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant could have a field day.
Ohio State loses if … Clemson tightens up its suspect run defense against Carlos Hyde and the Buckeyes’ dynamic quarterback, Braxton Miller. The Tigers aren’t as talented defensively as Michigan State, but you can bet they’re studying that video.
