NO. 2 Alabama at Auburn

2:30 p.m., Ch. 4

Records: Alabama 10-1, 6-1 SEC; Auburn 6-5, 2-5

The skinny: The Crimson Tide can secure a spot in the SEC Championship Game against No. 10 Florida with a win or a Mississippi loss to Mississippi State. The Tigers can upgrade their bowl prospects and finish on a high note.

The stat: Alabama tailback Derrick Henry already has tied Trent Richardson's single-season record for rushing touchdowns (21) and looks to run on a vulnerable Auburn defense.

The line: Alabama by 14 ½

Penn State at No. 6 Michigan State

2:30 p.m., ESPN

Records: Penn State 7-4, 4-3 Big Ten; Michigan State 10-1, 6-1

The skinny: After upsetting unbeaten Ohio State despite an injury to QB Connor Cook, the Spartans can wrap up a spot in the Big Ten Championship Game with a victory. A Penn State victory would send either Michigan or Ohio State to the title game.

The line: Michigan State by 10 ½

No. 4 Notre Dame at No. 13 Stanford

6:30 p.m., Ch. 9

Records: Notre Dame 10-1, Stanford 9-2

The skinny: This is an elimination game for the College Football Playoff. The Fighting Irish are in better shape with a win since they have one loss, to No. 1 Clemson. The Cardinal will likely need lots of help from the other conferences to get in with two losses.

The line: Stanford by 3
