College Football Week 14 Online Betting
With the pending expansion of the College Football Playoff, the role of conference championship games has been questioned. The ultimate fear comes from the 2003 Big 12 Championship Game, where the 10-3 and 15th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats destroyed the undefeated and #1-ranked Oklahoma Sooners 35-7. Such a scenario keeps the College Football Playoff from automatically taking in conference championship teams. As a result, the conference championship games now rival the college basketball conference tournaments in fraudulence.
Should the College Football Playoff expand to 12 teams, the conference championship games will most often resemble a final NFL preseason game. So why do the conference championship games even exist? Well, the money, of course! The leagues and networks get enough eyeballs to make them worthwhile. And the communities that host the games love the tourism revenue from visiting fans. Thus, the charade continues.

Friday, December 1, 2023
Pac-12 Championship Game, 8 pm, ABC, Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas, NV
The Pac-12 Championship Game will be played between the one and two seeds instead of the division champions. The Pac-12 Championship game is held in Las Vegas.

Should USC and/or the UCLA Bruins make the 2023 Pac-12 championship game, there will be irony in that it would be the last game those schools ever play as members of the Pac-12. Both schools are moving to the Big Ten Conference next year.
