The Wisconsin Badgers (10-0 SU, 6-4 ATS) are the only undefeated team in the Big Ten, and the Big Ten is the best conference in college football this year. However, the Badgers are only No. 5 on the College Football Playoff rankings. They’ve played a relatively soft schedule in the West Division; a win this Saturday over the No. 24 Michigan Wolverines (8-2 SU, 4-5-1 ATS) would go a long way towards putting Wisconsin in the CFP. Kick-off is at noon Eastern on FOX, with the Badgers laying 7. 5 points at press time.

It’s a relatively slow Week 12 on the NCAAF odds board, but here are four more important games on tap this Saturday, all times Eastern:
 

No. 12 TCU Horned Frogs at Texas Tech Red Raiders (noon, FS1)

The Frogs (8-2 SU, 5-5 ATS) still have a chance to win the Big 12 and play in a major bowl game. But they’ll have to take care of business against Texas Tech (5-5 SU, 6-4 ATS). This game is locked at press time with TCU as a 7-point chalk; TCU head coach Gary Patterson hasn’t revealed who his starting quarterback will be.

 

No. 20 LSU Tigers at Tennessee Volunteers (7 PM, ESPN)

This is the first game for the Volunteers (4-6 SU, 3-7 ATS) after firing head coach Butch Jones and replacing him on an interim basis with defensive line coach Brady Hoke. The Vols are 16-point home dogs against the surging Tigers (7-3 SU, 5-4-1 ATS), who are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games.

 

No. 19 NC State Wolfpack at Wake Forest Demon Deacons (7:30 PM, ESPNU)

In one of the closest matchups on the Week 12 college football lines, the Wolfpack (7-3 SU, 4-5-1 ATS) are 1.5-point road dogs versus the Demon Deacons (6-4 SU, 7-2-1 ATS), who have covered each of their last three games.

 

UCLA Bruins at No. 11 USC Trojans (8 PM, ABC)

The Battle of Los Angeles resumes Saturday night at the Coliseum, with the Trojans (9-2 SU, 3-7-1 ATS) favored by 16 points over UCLA (5-5 SU, 3-7 ATS) and the total set at 71. The Under is 8-1-1 in their last 10 meetings, and the Bruins are 0-5 ATS on the road this year.
