When College GameDay rolls into town, you know you've got a big match up on your hands.

Lee Corso and the gang always show up at the biggest matchups of the week. The crew has been all over the country this year. Florida, Texas and California are just three of the states that the show has visited this season highlighting the best matchups from week to week.

With a light slate in Week 14, there aren't too many options for ESPN's flagship college football show. Most teams will have either finished their season up or take the week off before conference championship games, but there are still a few intriguing games on the schedule.

Here are the most likely places we'll see GameDay visit next.


Oklahoma at TCU

The Horned Frogs of TCU pulled off the biggest win in their short history with the Big 12 conference. TCU set the media abuzz when they edged the Texas Longhorns, 20-13, on the road.

Now the young Horned Frogs will come back home to Fort Worth to host the vaunted Oklahoma Sooners. The Frogs helped the Sooners by eliminating the Longhorns from Big 12 title contention. Could they pull off the upset and eliminate Oklahoma too?

As of now, the Frogs aren't ranked but they very well could be after beating Texas. If this is a matchup of two Top 25 teams, it will be one of the better games of the week.


Texas at Kansas State

All eyes should be on the Big 12 in Week 14 as the conference championship should be decided by these two games.

Kansas State was stunned by Baylor last week and lost all hope of competing in the BCS National Championship game. However the BCS is still within reach if it can find a way to beat the visiting Longhorns.

Mack Brown will have to do quite the coaching job with his team if he's going to have it ready to play after the disappointing loss to TCU, but this game still offers plenty of intrigue—especially with the conference championship on the line for the Wildcats.


Boise State at Nevada

If GameDay wants to show some non-BCS love, Week 14 is the time to do it.

The Boise State Broncos have had a relatively quiet season without Kellen Moore at quarterback, but they are still ranked in the BCS Top 25. At No. 22, the Broncos are one of the few ranked teams in action and they have a history with Nevada.

In 2010 a Colin Kaepernick-led Wolfpack team ruined Boise State's chances at an undefeated season and national championship with a memorable 34-31 upset in overtime. These two teams have battled for WAC supremacy for years, so it is a bit of a rivalry. Even if Nevada has no shot of winning the Mountain West, it could spoil another Broncos season.

This should be a great game and GameDay may just show up to give it a little more hype.
