We have given you plenty of opportunities to vote on a wide variety of topics over the past two days. So we end our week with one final poll question, "What is the can't miss non-AQ conference game of the 2011 season?"

This is an easy one for me: TCU at Boise State on Nov. 12. It is also one of my three non-AQ games to watch, as featured in my spring wrap-up. A mini-rivalry has developed between fans of these schools. Unfortunately, there is no way this one will develop further since this will be their only meeting as conference rivals. Still, many are expecting this game to determine the conference title. Boise State is nearly unbeatable at home with two losses there since 2001 (one of them was a bowl game). The teams split their past two meetings in bowl games -- TCU won the Poinsettia Bowl in 2008, Boise State won the Fiesta Bowl the following season. This one is going to be good.

My other choices: Houston at Tulsa could decide the team to play in the C-USA championship game; Air Force at Navy could determine who wins the Commander-in-Chief Trophy; Air Force at Boise State features the Broncos' first conference crack at stopping the triple option; TCU has a difficult road game at San Diego State as it tries to leave the Mountain West with another conference title. I have plenty other AQ games to watch, both in conference and out of conference, but these are my top five.
