List Rules Most important games of the 2012-13 season

Editor's Note: Voting has been closed.
The biggest 2012 NCAA Football games are those most-anticipated college football match-ups for the 2012 season. These games include the top in-conference and non-conference college football games, rivalry games and those contests that will likely decide which two teams will compete for the 2012-13 BCS National Championship. Quite simply, these are the 2012 college football games that should not be missed.

As with every year, the nation's eyes are on the defending national champions, the Alabama Crimson Tide. They get their first big test right in week one as they play the Sugar Bowl-champion Michigan Wolverines in the Cowboys Classic on September 2, 2012, at Cowboys Stadium. Alabama's schedule doesn't get any easier though as they continue with top SEC teams like LSU, Arkansas and Auburn also on the slate.

While not all games will have a powerful impact on the college football rankings, many will be very personal. Rivalry games, as always, are some of the best games to watch as college football rivals square off each year. Michigan at Ohio State, Oklahoma at Texas, LSU at Texas A&M and Notre Dame at USC are just a few of the biggest college football rivalry games for the 2012 season. None of the above should be missed.

So whether you bleed maize and blue or are all about the Roll Tide or anywhere in between, don't miss these top college football games of the 2012 season. Can't wait for a specific game?
