Wednesday November 23rd, 2016

Week 13 is highlighted by the biggest game of the season. No matchup in 2016 has generated more excitement than Ohio State’s meeting with Michigan in Columbus on Saturday. Not only are the programs longstanding rivals, both of them are in contention for College Football Playoff berths. Yet The Game is far from the only contest worth tracking during rivalry week. Washington will meet Washington State in the Apple Cup with the Pac-12 North division on the line. South Carolina will try to upend national championship contender Clemson. Florida will hope to keep its own playoff campaign alive by winning at Florida State. A panel of Sports Illustrated writers and editors (Andy Staples, Pete Thamel, Lindsay Schnell, Brian Hamilton, Joan Niesen, Colin Becht and Gabriel Baumgaertner) made its picks for every big matchup.
