ESPN ranked the Top 25 games of the 2012 college football season and ESPNU is televising select games from that list. OU's 51-48 overtime win over OSU was selected as No. 15 and will air at 5 p.m. Saturday.

An ESPN stats team, led by ESPN college football research analyst Brad Edwards, determined Nos. 25-6, and left the order of the top five games to be decided by fans through a SportsNation poll on ESPN.com.

The Top 5 games of 2012 were narrowed down to: Texas A&M vs. Alabama, Outback Bowl: South Carolina vs. Michigan, Alabama vs. LSU, Stanford vs. Oregon and SEC championship: Alabama vs. Georgia.
