In the Big Ten, two games, in particular, weigh heavily on divisional standings: Wisconsin can deal Iowa an important second loss on Saturday, and the winner of Michigan-Michigan State will find themselves as the primary challenger to Ohio State’s Big Ten reign.

In the SEC West, Ole Miss and Auburn meet to try to keep pace with — and pressure on — favorites Alabama. In the East, a game that looked like it would be one for the ages just a few weeks ago is Georgia’s last test — insofar as Florida counts as that.
