This weekend is a big one in college football, with conference championships on the line across the country. For the heavy majority of college football teams, winning a conference championship is the overarching goal for the season. Only a few schools truly compete for a National Championship, with the College Football Playoff being more like the Champions League in European soccer. Winning the conference title is hardly a consolation prize.
While that will be the immediate focus for all of the players in action this weekend, this is also a big few days for NFL talent evaluators. It’s a chance to see this year’s prospects against some of the toughest competition they’ll face all year, meaning the tape from these games holds a big more weight than that from any average Saturday.
In total, 22 teams will compete for 11 championships this weekend between Friday and Saturday. Here’s a look at the schedule…
These games will feature a number of the top prospects in the 2024 NFL Draft class, including the majority of the currently projected first-round picks and top-50 prospects. In addition, six of the projected top nine quarterbacks will be in action this weekend.
