The ACC is the first conference with its championship game set, with both Clemson and Miami clinching in week 11.

The B1G East scenarios have all been laid out before, but Ohio State clinches with a win and a Michigan loss. Michigan wins the division by winning out and losses by both PSU and MSU. MSU wins the division by winning out and OSU losing out. PSU wins by winning out and OSU losing out and MSU losing to Maryland or Rutgers. Wisconsin clinched the B1G West in Week 11.

Oklahoma needs a win over either Kansas this week or WVU next week to secure a spot in the Big XII championship. TCU needs to win out to get the 2nd spot. OSU needs to win out and TCU to lose. WVU needs to win out and both TCU and OSU to lose. Texas and Iowa St are also still technically alive for the 2nd spot, if chaos were to want some fun.

Washington State has a bye this week, but can clinch the Pac 12 North with a win at Washington next week. Stanford needs to win against Cal and needs a Washington win in the Apple Cup. Washington needs a Cal win in The Big Game and to beat WSU. USC clinched the Pac 12 South in Week 11.

Georgia clinched the SEC East in Week 10 and it worked out very well for them. "Chickenshit Saturday" in the SEC this week means nothing can change, but the Iron Bowl will be for the SEC West next week.

UCF wins the American East with a win over Temple and a USF loss against Tulsa. If both win, the War on I4 next week will be for the East division title. Memphis wins the American West with wins over SMU this week and ECU next week. If Memphis loses to either, Houston will clinch with wins over Tulane this week and Navy next week. SMU is also technically alive, needing Memphis and Houston to both lose out while they win out.

Lane Kiffin and FAU can win C-USA East with a win over FIU this week or Charlotte next week. FIU needs to win out and FAU to lose out. UAB, North Texas, and Southern Miss are all tied for the lead of C-USA West, and are 1-1 against the other two teams, and I don't care enough about further tie-breakers to look them up.

The Fighting Ohio Bobcats can clinch the MAC East tonight at Akron. Akron can win by winning tonight and beating Kent State next Tuesday. Toledo needs to win out to clinch the MAC West. Northern Illinois can still win with a Toledo loss. Central Michigan and Western Michigan can also still win with chaos.

Boise St can clinch the MWC Mountain with a win against Air Force this week. Wyoming needs BSU to lose out and to win out themselves. Fresno St can clinch the MWC West with a win against those Wyoming Cowboys. San Diego St needs Fresno St to lose to both Wyoming and Boise, while they beat Nevado and New Mexico (which is probably the most likely of all the "win out-lose out" scenarios that exist on the table).

The Sunbelt is still a 4-way mess of a tie. The winners of App St-Georgia St next week and Arkansas St-Troy championship week will probably be the co-champs
