The 2017 NCAA football championship schedule and game odds were released Sunday evening. While these college football games are some of the most exciting games of the year, Championship Saturday is just the calm before the storm. The hype and anticipation for the conference title games are incredible, especially if your favorite team is involved in the action!

Big Ten, SEC results will decide CFB playoff teams

With 10 conference titles game occurring this upcoming weekend, none of them are bigger in terms of deciding which teams will qualify for the college football playoffs more than the SEC and Big Ten championships.

The Big Ten title game features AP No. 3 Wisconsin taking on the No. 8 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. For Wisconsin it is easy, win and you are in. There is no way that the Badgers will finish the season undefeated and make the final four.

For Ohio State to get in, they will need to beat Wisconsin and hope for help from other teams and the CFP committee. Truthfully, the Buckeyes are a real longshot to make the postseason even if they do beat Wisconsin. No. 1 Clemson and No. 2 Oklahoma are shoe-ins to the CFP if they win their games this Saturday.

Add to that, the winner of the SEC title game is going to most likely be in as well. That means if OSU wins, they would have to jump up four spots - leapfrogging Alabama, Miami and the loser of the SEC title game?

That seems pretty farfetched, but hey, you never can tell with these rankings.

The SEC title game features No. 4 Auburn taking on No. 6 Georgia. While Wisconsin is a “win and in” team in the Big Ten, the same can be said for both of these two squads in the SEC. The winner of this game is going to the playoffs, that's for sure.

Auburn crushed Georgia 40-17 back on November 1, so you know the Dawgs are going to be chomping at the bit to get some revenge!
