GameDay Kickoff: The playoff stakes for 10 biggest rivalry week games

9:00 AM ET

With the exception of the switch between No. 2 Miami and No. 3 Clemson, the top 12 teams in the College Football Playoff selection committee stayed exactly the same Tuesday. Don’t get too comfortable, not with rivalry week on deck.

Three of the past five meetings between Ohio State and Michigan have been one-possession games. Nick Saban has never defeated an Auburn team that won nine games, going 0-6 (Auburn is 9-2). Things are bound to change in Week 13.

Here’s a look at the 10 biggest games that will shape the committee’s fifth of six rankings, listed in order of biggest potential impact:

1. No. 1 Alabama (11-0) at No. 6 Auburn (9-2)

(Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS)

Playoff stakes: The winner clinches the SEC West and earns a matchup against No. 7 Georgia in the SEC championship game. A win over the Bulldogs in Atlanta probably would seal a place in the top four for whichever team wins
