When doing midseason look-aheads for college football, it's easy to pick out the games that matter going forward. After all, the regular season shapes the national championship game, so there are normally one or two games every weekend that actually have an impact on which two teams play for the title. In college basketball, it's obviously different. It's difficult to project which games over the final couple weeks of the season will be bubble battles, and which games will be mostly irrelevant toward the NCAA tournament hunt and the conference race. With that said, the 2012-13 season is shaping up to feature a wild conference campaign with far more questions than answers heading into the meat and potatoes of the season.
We hope these 30 games provide some insight into how the final standings will look.
