When the conference championships take place this weekend, there will be plenty of pressure on several teams who are trying to secure their spots in BCS bowl games.
The Missouri Tigers are coming off an emotional victory over Kansas last week. They have no time to rest, however, after securing their place in today’s Big Twelve championship game.
Oklahoma, the only team to beat the Tigers this year, will be their opponent. The Sooners are the last obstacle for the Tigers to clear on their way to a shot at the national title. A loss, though, could knock Missouri clear out of a BCS bowl game.
LSU and Tennessee will be squaring off in the SEC title game. A similar circumstance surrounds this game. The winner will be headed to a BCS game, while the loser will be sent packing to a lesser bowl.
This week, LSU gave permission to Michigan to speak with their head coach, Les Miles, about the Wolverines vacant coaching position. The game today will tell if the speculation has hurt the focus of the Tigers.
Missouri will be playing in prime time for the second week in a row, and if they can handle the pressure as they did last week, they will head to the national title game as the #1 team in the country.
West Virginia can secure their spot in the title game with a win over Pittsburgh. The game is not a conference title game, but it still serves as such for the Mountaineers due to the championship implications.
