College football schedule today: TV channels, start times to watch every 2022 NCAA championship game

The final College Football Playoff field will be formed from the results of conference championship weekend, starting with the Pac-12 on Friday and ending with the ACC on Saturday — plus all the games in between.

The two most impactful games on the schedule appear to be the meetings between No. 3 TCU vs. No. 10 Kansas State in the Big 12, plus No. 4 USC and No. 11 Utah in the Pac-12. A loss by the Horned Frogs or the Trojans would make it possible for one — or both — of Ohio State and Alabama to make the Playoff, despite neither team playing in Week 14.

One game that had Playoff implications was the SEC championship meeting between No. 1 Georgia and No. 14 LSU, though the Tigers' loss to Texas A&M took the shine off that game. Had they won, a win over the Bulldogs likely would have granted entry to the Playoff.

Another game that can impact the Playoff is the Big Ten championship between No. 2 Michigan and unranked Purdue. The Wolverines are heavily favored in this meeting, and a win would give the team its second Big Ten championship and Playoff berth in as many seasons. A loss would be nothing short of shocking, and the ramifications of that defeat would be massive.

The ACC and AAC championship games are also worth monitoring for the purposes of determining New Year's Day 6 bowl eligibility. The winner between No. 9 Clemson and No. 23 North Carolina — both coming off Week 13 losses — will determine the conference's Orange Bowl representative.

Likewise, the winner between No. 18 Tulane and No. 22 UCF should determine the highest-ranked Group of 5 team, which would gain entry to the Cotton Bowl.
