The conference championship games around the country are now set following Week 14 of the college football regular season.

LSU and Georgia highlight the major conference matchups, with both teams currently slotted inside the top four of the College Football Playoff rankings. The winner is a virtual lock for the CFP, while LSU could still make a very strong case even with a loss.

Wisconsin gets a rematch with Ohio State in the Big Ten championship contest after the Badgers went on the road to take down Minnesota on Saturday. The Buckeyes emerged with a 38-7 victory when the two teams met earlier this season, and they'll be heavy favorites coming off an impressive showing vs. Michigan.

It will be Utah vs. Oregon in the Pac-12 championship after the Utes hammered Colorado to claim the South Division crown. The Ducks earned the win in the Civil War rivalry game against Oregon State on Saturday, but they'll need to fix their offensive woes before facing a dominant Utah defense.

Clemson has looked like the class of the ACC all season, and the Tigers could notch their fifth straight conference title versus Virginia. The Cavaliers booked a spot in the championship clash with their first victory over in-state rival Virginia Tech since 2003.

The final Power 5 conference championship game will feature a rematch between Oklahoma and Baylor. The Sooners shocked the Bears earlier this campaign by erasing a 21-point halftime deficit for a dramatic win in Waco. A victory in the title contest would give either team a shot at the CFP.

Here are the matchups for each conference championship game:

ACC: Clemson vs. Virginia
Big 12: Baylor vs. Oklahoma
Big Ten: Ohio State vs. Wisconsin
SEC: LSU vs. Georgia
Pac-12: Oregon vs. Utah
AAC: Memphis vs. Cincinnati
CUSA: FAU vs. UAB
MAC: Miami (Ohio) vs. Central Michigan
Mountain West: Boise State vs. Hawaii
SUN: Appalachian State vs. Louisiana-Lafayette
