Rivalry Week is here and the college football regular season is drawing to a close. In the meantime, there's a lot on the line this weekend.

There are several huge showdowns to watch, including Alabama-Auburn, Ohio State-Michigan, Washington-Washington State and more.

As he does every Wednesday, Ralph Russo of the Associated Press released his score predictions for the weekend.

Here are Russo’s predictions for the biggest matchups:

  • Oklahoma 49, West Virginia 42
  • Washington 27, Washington State 24
  • UCF 42, USF 24
  • Alabama 38, Auburn 10
  • Clemson 41, South Carolina 16
  • Notre Dame 27, USC 14
  • Michigan 28, Ohio State 20
  • Georgia 42, Georgia Tech 17
  • Texas A&M 27, LSU 24
  • Kentucky 28, Louisville 7
  • Nebraska 27, Iowa 24
  • Boston College 28, Syracuse 24

Also, Russo has given us his weekly “Upset Special.” This one isn't a crazy pick, as he has No. 16 Washington beating No. 7 Washington State.

For the season, Russo is 6-6 picking upsets. He missed last week taking Iowa State to beat Texas.
