    Pitt played a great game and surprisingly beat Clemson in a big weekend of upsets and I think Pitt lost to VA Tech a few weeks ago.
    No doubt that Clemson is a great team so VA Tech should be a good game.
    I was surprised at Washington's recent loss. First time I saw them and USC played well but Washington impressed me as a quick but small team so I don't know if they could handle Clemson or Alabama so it will be interesting to see how well they handle Colorado.
    In any case, it's a great season and it will also be interesting to see what happens with Ohio, Michigan, and Penn State.

    You know they are praying that Washington and Clemson win their Conference Championship games convincingly.
    While Michigan is a good Football Team and probably deserves the 4th spot as much as anyone it still muddies the water for the committee, especially since a B1G non-champion is already in there.
    Should there be a bad performance or a loss then enters PSU/Wisky winner.

    I believe they are both ranked a bit high, that's what complicates the whole mess. I probably would have had OK and OK State in front of PSU. It's hard to ignore that 8 game win streak though.

    Current Win Streak in the FBS:
    Alabama 24- Unbelievable Last loss 19 Sept 2015 to Ole Miss.
    Western Michigan 14- While their schedule is questionable they did beat North Western who beat Iowa. Yep, the same Iowa that beat Michigan.
    PSU, OKLA and USC tied at 8- The good news about not making the playoffs is that they don't have to play Alabama so they have a pretty good chance of keeping that streak alive going in to next season.

    I have been a LSU fan all my life. If we had a QB this year, things could have been different. Bad taste in my mouth about the way they handled Les Miles. I will still be saying Geaux Tigers next year.

    I do not just watch SEC games. I watch them all. I was an option QB in college and in the Air Force so you know I enjoy the military teams and GT (I think) who run the triple option. I was the first soccer style kicker in my hometown and I just happened to be watching Jan Stenerude (spelling?) back in the day and it worked. I got offered many scholarships around the country and visited a few Campuses like Clemson but had my mind on other important things such as beer drinking and skirt chasing. I played in the Philippines at Clark AB and after that went to RAF Chicksands in England. I did not know how that happened until later on when I found out the generals were betting big time on football. I was the star QB and kicker and had the old men buying me beers at the Rod and Gun Club in England. I worked at the Post Office at both bases so I was well known to throw some extra junk mail in the butchers box to get a great mark down on my steak. Ha Ha !! Glory Days !! I'm 60 now and feel every hit they gave me. I hit with my helmet first and did the same thing while trying to run over the big dudes. Now my pains give me a wake up call in the early morning hours. C 2 in the neck down to the L's in the back. The weedeater is my enemy. The latest exciting game I watched was the Houston versus Memphis game. I like Colorado's QB along with Lamar Jackson, Christian McCafferey and anyone who puts it on the line. I hate crybabies like Cam Newton now and would spit on Kapernick for his lack of respect. The only time I watch NFL now is when Dak Prescott is playing. Anyway, I am rambling and I hope everyone enjoys this weekends conference championship games. College Football and Music keep me somewhat grounded in this world of pain. Good luck to ya'lls teams and Geaux Tigers for next year or maybe even a bowl game, which is another subject. How many do they have now? Geez !!! Oh yea, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and a special blessing to all our veterans. Now, I have to go get ready and try to get me and my girl some venison. Wish me luck.

    Really pulling for VA Tech this weekend! Son is an Engineering student at VA Tech, would be nice to see. While it would be an upset, it would not be the first time that VT has pulled off a great upset, and risen to the level of their opponent. At the very least, I hope for a great game!

    While we wait for College football playoffs\national championship; UFC fans, Ronda Rousey is back Sat. December 30th UFC 207. That chin might be vulnerable to hard punches. That's how initially Holly Holm got to her, punched her hard, wobbled her and kicked\knocked her out silly. Brutal. Word has it Mr. Miyagi'll be in her corner
