As we enter the final week of college football’s regular season, we already have a good idea of what the national championship game will look like. Barring a colossal upset in the SEC title game and a whole lot of poll voters changing their minds and moving Oklahoma State up, LSU and Alabama will play a rematch of their earlier overtime game in the BCS National Championship. After the title game, however, there is still a lot of drama to play out with a variety of conference championships, BCS bids and bowl games on the line. Here are all the highlights from this week in the AP Top 25.

Next week’s conference championship games could shake up the BCS, while the Bedlam rivalry between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State will determine the Big 12 title and a spot in the Fiesta Bowl. Here are all the highlights from this week in the AP Top 25.

Combine that intrigue with a slew of heated rivalries and teams jockeying for conference championships and bowl positions, and it should be another exciting week in college football. Here are all the highlights from this week in the AP Top 25.
Notre Dame’s faint BCS bowl hopes took a big hit this week when it was determined that starting running back Jonas Gray will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn MCL.
