#1 NOTRE DAME (11-0) AT SOUTHERN CAL (7-4)

[Saturday, 8 p.m. on ABC]

Notre Dame is 11-0 for the first time since 1989 and know they are just one game away from a national-title shot. The Fighting Irish have risen to the top thanks to a defense that is tied with Alabama for first in scoring defense, allowing just 10.1 points per game

College Football 2012 — Week 12 Preview

#14 STANFORD (8-2) AT #1 OREGON (10-0)

[Saturday, 8 p.m. on ABC]

The Ducks are riding a school-record 14-game winning streak and can clinch a spot in the Pac-12 title game with a win this weekend. Oregon’s high-powered offense leads the nation in scoring and has become a case of "pick your poison"—running back Kenjon Barner is fourth in the nation in rushing, but when he was knocked out of last week’s game, quarterback Marcus Mariota responded with 377 passing yards and a school-record six touchdowns. They’ll be tested, however, by a Stanford defense that leads the nation in rush defense and is giving up a conference-low 320.7 total yards per game. Stanford’s Kevin Hogan will be making his second career start for the Cardinal after throwing for 254 yards and three touchdowns in last week’s win over then-#13 Oregon State. Oregon has won nine of the last 10 over the Cardinal.

Which Quarterback Deserves to Get Benched? — Sports Survey of the Day

We're about halfway through the NFL season, and some quarterbacks have been a bit, shall we say, disappointing so far. But has it been enough to merit a demotion?

One of the biggest question marks coming out of week 8 is Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. Head coach Andy Reid has decided to stick with his struggling QB, even though the Eagles are 3-4, losers of three straight.

College Football 2012 — Week 10 Preview

#1 ALABAMA (8-0) AT #5 LOUISIANA STATE (7-1)

[Saturday, 8 p.m. on CBS]

Last year, these two teams gave us the two most anticipated games of the year, and this season isn't much different. Alabama and LSU boast two of the top defenses in the game, ranking first and third, respectively, in total defense. The Crimson Tide have a slight edge on offense, with quarterback A.J. McCarron leading the nation in pass efficiency. However, while Alabama has blown away the opposition by an average of over 37 points per game, they have played just one ranked team and aren't as battle-tested as an LSU squad that is playing its fourth consecutive ranked opponent and has had a bye week to prepare.

College Football 2012 — Week Nine Preview

#13 Mississippi State (7-0) at #1 Alabama (7-0)

[Saturday at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN]

After steamrolling through its first seven opponents, the Crimson Tide now gets to the meat of its schedule with a three-game stretch vs. #13 Mississippi State, at #6 LSU and vs. #22 Texas A&M. Thus far, Alabama hasn’t really been challenged, outscoring its opponents by almost 33 points per game. The Tide defense has been as good as we’ve seen in years, ranking first in almost all defensive categories. But while the defense understandably gets the publicity, the Alabama offense has been no slouch either, scoring 40+ in five of seven games this year. Quarterback A.J. McCarron leads the nation in pass efficiency and the offense ranks 14th nationally in scoring.
