Still basking in the glow of last night's 47-38 Cal win at Arizona State?  You are not alone.  The great part about winning on Friday night is really getting to enjoy the Saturday games.  The last big Saturday of the college football regular season brings us rivalry games galore.  Use this as your open thread for all of the day's action.  See a full schedule of TV games here and after the jump.  Here are some of the rivalry games on tap (all times Pacific):

  • Ohio State at Michigan (9:00 am, ABC):  The Buckeyes have won the last seven in this series, but Michigan has had the better season this year.  Do the Wolverines break the streak?  And will Urban Meyer officially become the Ohio State head coach after the game?  
  • Georgia at Georgia Tech (9:00 am, ESPN):  A lot of buzzing and barking going on. 
  • Alabama at Auburn (12:30 pm, CBS):  Last year's Iron Bowl was epic as Auburn chased the national title.  This year, it's Bama in the national title hunt.
  • Oregon State at Oregon (12:30 pm, ABC):  The Ducks probably won't have any trouble shaking off the disappointment of last week's home loss to USC.  It's the Civil War, after all.  
  • Virginia Tech at Virginia (12:30 pm, ABC):  The battle for Virginia!
  • Florida State at Florida (4:00 pm, ESPN):  The teams may not be as good as a few years ago, but the rivalry is still robust.  And there's still NFL talent all over the field.
  • Washington State at Washington (4:30 pm, Versus):  The Apple Cup is on the line.
  • UCLA at USC (7:00 pm, FSN):  Who rings the Victory Bell?
There are some good non-rivalry games out there as well, including Notre Dame at Stanford (5:00 pm, ABC) and Penn State at Wisconsin (12:30 pm, ESPN).  Stanford tries to stay in the mix for a BCS bowl berth, and PSU/Wisky play for the Big1T2en Leaders Division title.  Or is it Legends?  No, it's Leaders.  Unless it's Legends.  But I think it's Leaders.  

Enjoy your Saturday.  And if you want to talk some Cal basketball, which plays Denver today at 2:00 pm, watch for that game thread on the front page.
