No. 3 Iowa at Nebraska
2:30 p.m., Ch. 5
Records: Iowa 11-0, 7-0 Big Ten; Nebraska 5-6, 3-4
The skinny: Iowa, with a win, will complete its first perfect regular season since going 7-0 in 1922 and keep itself in position for a spot in the College Football Playoff. Nebraska is going for its third win in a row and a 6-6 record that will secure bowl eligibility.
The stat: The Huskers rank 10th in the nation against the run, giving up 110 yards per game. The Hawkeyes, propelled by Jordan Canzeri, LeShun Daniels and Akrum Wadley, average 208 rushing yards per game.
The line: Iowa by 2
No. 7 Baylor at No. 15 TCU
6:30 p.m., ESPN
Records: Baylor 9-1, 6-1 Big 12; TCU 9-2, 6-2
The skinny: Baylor could still win its third consecutive Big 12 title, and maybe get a playoff spot. The Bears have to win their last two games, and No. 5 Oklahoma has to lose Saturday at No. 9 Oklahoma State, where Baylor won last week. TCU is out of contention for another league title but has a 12-game home winning streak since a 41-38 loss to the Bears in 2013.
The stat: TCU has scored a first-quarter TD in 24 consecutive games, a Big 12 record.
The line: TCU by 1
No. 16 Navy at No. 21 Houston
11 a.m., Ch. 5
Records: Navy 9-1, 7-0 American Athletic; Houston 10-1, 6-1
The skinny: The winner will host either Temple or South Florida in the first American Athletic Conference Championship Game on Dec. 5. The winner will also be in the driver's seat for earning the Group of Five berth. Navy is the top-ranked Group of Five team, ranked 15th, while Houston fell from the CFP rankings this week.
The stat: Navy QB Keenan Reynolds has scored 82 TDs in his career. He needs one to tie Montee Ball for most rushing and receiving in a career.
The line: Navy by 4
Missouri at Arkansas
1:30 p.m., Ch. 4
Records: Missouri 5-6, 1-6 SEC; Arkansas 6-5, 4-3
The skinny: Arkansas hopes to improve on its bowl position. Missouri is more desperate, needing a victory for bowl eligibility that would extend the career of coach Gary Pinkel. Pinkel announced two weeks ago that he will resign at the end of the season because he has lymphoma.
The stat: Arkansas has scored a total of 251 points in its past five games, more than it scored in all of the 2013 season, coach Bret Bielema's first at the school.
The line: Arkansas by 14
No. 20 Washington State at Washington
2:30 p.m., Ch. 9
Records: Washington State 8-3, 6-2 Pac-12; Washington 5-6, 3-5
The skinny: For the first time in more than a decade there is serious relevance to the Apple Cup. Washington State can plant itself into one of the top-tier Pac-12 bowl games with a victory and keep alive hopes for a 10-win season. Washington needs a win to reach six victories and become bowl-eligible.
The stat: It's the first time either team is ranked headed into the Apple Cup since 2003. Both teams were ranked in 2001.
The line: Washington by 7
