Where we stand: The Arkansas Razorbacks continued their great run and locked up bowl eligibility on Saturday with a dominating win over Ole Miss, shutting out the Rebels 30-0. Popular bowl picks LSU and Texas A&M were both off this weekend but will face off in College Station on Thursday night.
The Big 12 had a somewhat slow weekend, highlighted by a Thursday night showdown between West Virginia & Kansas State, with the Wildcats ultimately holding off the Mountaineers on the road. The Texas Longhorns took the weekend off before a home tilt with TCU on Thursday night where they will look to continue their recent hot streak and upset the heavily favored Horned Frogs.
What will the SEC do? That remains the big question when it comes to bowl projections, as the Big 12 side seems to be narrowed down to Texas and West Virginia. With the new SEC tie-in procedure, the ball is in their court as they will try to match up bowls and teams based on what both parties want. Given the geographic significance, those teams are likely narrowed to Arkansas, LSU or Texas A&M. However given that it’s the first year of the new system, it’s really anyone’s guess.
- #5 TCU @ Texas: 6:30 PM CST (Thursday, FOX)
- LSU @ Texas A&M: (6:30 PM CST, ESPN)
- Arkansas @ #20 Missouri: 1:30 PM CST, ESPN

Rivalry Week Time! It’s rivalry week, which means it’s time to take a look back at some of the best pranks in college football history
Our personal favorite: The most intense rivalry in college sports has seen pranks dating back 100 years. There have been canons dumped into rivers, uniform thefts, email blasts, painted messages, flybys, stale cheese, flour dumps and helicopters dropping ping pong balls on cadets in formation. One of the oldest, and most simple, is still the best. Army first stole Navy’s goat mascot, Bill, in 1953. Since then, the goat has been taken on a number of occasions. It’s been found tied to a post near the Pentagon or appearing in a New York Times ad reading, “Hey Navy, do you know where your kid is today?” Navy got even in 1991 and stole Army’s mule for the first time.
