Here is our look at the top games of the 2012 college football season:

1. OKLAHOMA AT WEST VIRGINIA

Nov. 17

This is more than a matchup of potential top 5 teams and a conference game. Oklahoma's trip to West Virginia could be the start of a serious national rivalry. The Sooners could deal with extreme weather changes for their Nov. 17 game in Morgantown and it's the main game OU fans have pegged as a worry to put a loss on their record.

2. LSU VS. ALABAMA

Nov. 3

What's not to love about a rematch of last season's BCS title game? As long as they score more this time around. Alabama took home the title, but LSU took the top ranking in the preseason coaches' poll.

4. OREGON AT USC

Nov. 3

Oregon has three straight BCS appearances and USC is coming off a two-year postseason ban. This is the premier game of the Pac-12 Conference. And don't forget USC is led by Matt Barkley, who turned down the NFL to return for another year with the Trojans. Plus, depending on how their seasons go, they could meet up again for the Pac-12 title game.

5. TCU VS. KANSAS STATE

Nov. 10
