College football schedule, Week 13: Rivalry Week! Kickoff times and TV schedule

The regular season comes to a close this weekend.

NCAA Football: Illinois at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

College football season always seems to fly by, even when NC State is not very good. This is the final weekend full of games, so enjoy what’s left. At least college football has the courtesy to go out with a strong slate of games: it’s rivalry week for a big chunk of FBS teams, and there is no shortage of interesting games.

Led first and foremost, of course, by Rutgers-Maryland on Saturday. Boy howdy, when those two tangle it’s always an adventure. I don’t love Big Ten football—really I just barely tolerate it—but you do have to admire the league’s ancient traditions like this one. Will there be a dry eye in the stands as the clock hits zeros in the fourth quarter?

Unfortunately, there’s only one college football game on Thanksgiving, but there are more than a dozen games to keep us company on Friday afternoon, headlined by the Apple Cup. Oh, and NC State is playing that day also.
