This bizarre college football season is winding down and we are starting to get an idea of who will square off in conference championship games. Some conferences, like the SEC, are already set. Alabama vs. Florida is the marquee matchup that everyone is waiting for. However, there are other conferences, like the Big Ten, who still need to work things out.

There are two conference championship games with massive implications when it comes to the College Football Playoff and the National Championship. The ACC championship features a rematch between Notre Dame and Clemson. The Fighting Irish knocked off the Tigers earlier this year, but Clemson was without star quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

The winner of this game is almost guaranteed a spot in the College Football Playoff. Notre Dame might be able to sneak in with a close loss if other championship games break their way.

The SEC Championship is other game that the world with everything at stake. The winner will undoubtedly secure a spot in the College Football Playoff, but there is much more to it than just that. Bama quarterback Mac Jones holds a slight edge over Florida’s Kyle Trask when it comes to the Heisman Trophy. This game could be the deciding factor for plenty of voters when they cast their ballots.

Here’s a full list of this year’s college football conference championship games.
