It’s a busy if not particularly compelling schedule in Week 12 of college football season, as the primary concern for most ranked teams is avoiding the dreaded lookahead with rivalry games on deck. With that being the case, however, there might be some upset potential for our expert prognosticators to consider.

All of the top 25 teams in the US LBM Coaches Poll are in action, with just three pairings of ranked opponents. The headliner is in the Pacific Northwest, where No. 10 Oregon State hosts No. 5 Washington for what might just be the last time. Top-ranked Georgia looks to complete another sweep of the SEC East at No. 19 Tennessee, and No. 16 Utah takes on No. 22 Arizona elsewhere in the soon-to-be-smaller Pac-12.

Read on to see how our expert pickers see those games unfolding, as well as a few other key contests in the still up-for-grabs Big 12 and ACC.
