SALT LAKE CITY — It doesn't get much better than championship weekend of college football.

It's the goal for so many teams from the various conferences around the country, and Utah is lucky to have two teams playing for their respective conference championship. Utah will kickoff the weekend with a Friday night matchup against Oregon in Las Vegas, and Utah State will travel to Carson, California, to try to beat 11-1 San Diego State to continue its surprising season.

If those aren't good enough, we have three other fun conference championship matchups for you to pick this week. Enjoy the games before we learn where bowl-eligible teams will land on Selection Sunday.

So get your picks in before the games start for KSL.com College Football Pick'em.
