Many fewer teams playing this weekend...FBS has their conference championship games going on and the non-DI playoffs are a few weeks underway, so the number of teams is narrowing.

FBS Games
12/4 at 11 AM - Kent State (7-5) vs Northern Illinois (8-4), ESPN - MAC Championship Game
12/4 at 7 PM - #5 Michigan (11-1) vs #16 Iowa (10-2), FOX - Big Ten Championship Game

DII Playoffs
Since they're already into the quarterfinals, I'll go ahead and list all the games. All games are 12/4, but times have not been announced yet.
#2 Shepherd at #1 Kutztown
#3 Northwest Missouri State at #1 Ferris State
#2 Bowie State at #1 Valdosta State
#2 Angelo State at #1 Colorado School of Mines

DIII Playoffs
Ditto from DII playoffs
Linfield vs Mary Hardin-Baylor
Wisconsin-Whitewater vs Central (IA)
North Central (IL) vs Renssalaer
Mount Union vs Muhlenberg

NAIA Playoffs
#3 Grand View (IA) at #1 Lindsey Wilson (KY)
#4 Northwestern (IA) at #2 Morningside (IA) - Morningside is ~45 minutes away from Northwestern and they're both in the GPAC. Morningside won the regular season matchup 55-49 4 weeks ago.

I watched a little bit of the game they just happen to be talking about Clint, saying him and Rocky Lombarbi, their transfer QB from Michigan St, have emerged as team leaders.
