(AP / WEHT) — Here are the games you should be watching today.

Georgia [41 – 17] Tennessee (FINAL)
The Bulldogs may not have turned in the dominating defensive performance they’ve become known for this season. But they proved they could power through with several sick players. Smart said they pulled defensive lineman Jalen Carter, who had received fluids intravenously, at halftime because his fever was over 100.

New Mexico [3 – 59] Alabama (FINAL)
Alabama dominated when it got going and gave some backups, like quarterback Paul Tyson, significant playing time. Tyson, the great-grandson of former Alabama coach Paul “Bear” Bryant, saw probably the most action of his career and completed 6 of 8 passes for 43 yards.

Oklahoma [14 – 27] Baylor (FINAL)
This was a huge win for the Bears under second-year coach Dave Aranda, and fittingly it was a standout defensive performance from the former defensive coordinator for LSU’s national championship two seasons ago. And it was a huge comeback after the letdown against the Horned Frogs, whose first-time starting quarterback Chandler Morris had 531 total yards.

Washington State [ 24 – 38] Oregon (FINAL)
The Ducks have won five straight and extended their home winning streak to 18. Washington State tied the game at 14 before halftime but Oregon pulled away in the third quarter. 

Purdue [31 – 59] Ohio State (FINAL)
Ohio State has been wobbly at times the past two weeks and was understandably wary of Purdue, which already upset two top-five teams this season.

Notre Dame [28 – 3] Virginia (FINAL)
Jack Coan threw three touchdown passes and No. 7 Notre Dame extended its regular-season winning streak against Atlantic Coast Conference schools to 23 games with a 28-3 victory against Virginia.

Maryland [21 – 40] Michigan State (FINAL)
Payton Thorne threw two of his four touchdown passes to Jayden Reed, and Kenneth Walker ran for 143 yards and two scores, helping No. 8 Michigan State bounce back from its first loss with a 40-21 victory over Maryland on Saturday.

Michigan [21 – 17] Penn State (FINAL)
The Wolverines started slow, picked up the pace and got big contributions on the defensive side to keep their Big Ten championship hopes alive. Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo, particularly were consistently disruptive.

TCU [17 – 63] Oklahoma State (FINAL)
The Cowboys won their third straight. Oklahoma State moved into a tie for first place in the conference with Oklahoma with two games remaining, including a showdown with the Sooners on November 27.
