Remember how boring the last two weeks were? Yeah, those days are over.

We already laid out the stakes in every important game going down this weekend, but let’s go through a quick rundown of everything up for grabs this Rivalry Week.

– Houston at Memphis: Winner takes the American West
– Virginia at Virginia Tech: The favored Hoos are looking to snap a 14-game Commonwealth Cup losing streak
– Oklahoma at West Virginia: Assuming a Texas win over Kansas (never a safe assumption), the winner will occupy the other half of the Big 12 Championship
– Washington at Washington State: Winner takes the Pac-12 North
– Michigan at Ohio State: Winner takes the Big Ten East
– Florida at Florida State: Either Florida State extends its record bowl streak to 37 years or the ‘Noles archrival ends it on their own field
– Troy at Appalachian State: Winner takes the Sun Belt East
– Louisiana-Lafayette at Louisiana-Monroe: ULL takes the Sun Belt West with a win, while ULM wins it with a win and help from Texas State
– Tennessee at Vanderbilt: Winner makes a bowl game, loser stays home
– Notre Dame at USC: Notre Dame books a Playoff ticket with a win, and quite possibly sends Clay Helton out of a job
– Utah State at Boise State: Winner takes the Mountain West’s Mountain Division championship.

And then you’ve got traditional rivalry games like the Egg Bowl, the Iron Bowl, the Palmetto Bowl (and whatever LSU-Texas A&M is) sprinkled around as tasty desserts complementing your main course.

Let’s eat.
