Barring another loss by Alabama, the No. 7 LSU Tigers and No. 9 Texas A&M Aggies will have one more game to show that they are deserving of a spot in a BCS Bowl. The Tigers will travel to face the Arkansas Razorbacks on Friday at 1:30 p.m. CT, while the Aggies will host Missouri on Saturday at 6 p.m.
On Thursday, the No. 18 Texas Longhorns will look to set-up a crucial Big 12 game against the K-State Wildcats by first getting through the TCU Horned Frogs. While TCU is without quarterback Casey Pachall, Trevone Boykin has filled in and provided the team with some decent play.
Also on Saturday, the regular season will come to an end for the Rice Owls and Houston Cougars. The Owls are expected to go to a bowl game following their season finale against UTEP on Saturday at 6 p.m. Saturday will be the end of the road for the Cougars, though, as the team would like to finish its season with a win against Tulane at 2:30 p.m.
