Two SEC teams are in action this early, and then there's that Cotton Bowl matchup between Baylor-Michigan State.

As good as TCU looked yesterday, this team still beat them...after surrendering 58 points. #OneTrueChampion

Plenty of games on tap early, including the all-run 'errything slugfest between Wisconsin and Auburn; a strange Minnesota-Mizzou pairing; and Baylor-Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl. All times Central; all games on ESPN, save the Citrus Bowl -which is ABC's lone contribution to the bowl schedule.

19 Auburn Tigers vs. 17 Wisconsin Badgers (Outback Bowl, 11:00am CT, ESPN2)

4 Baylor Bears vs. 7 Michigan State Spartans (Cotton Bowl, 11:30am CT, ESPN)

16 Missouri Tigers vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers (Citrus Bowl, 12:00 noon CT, ABC)
