I believe this is the first time in a couple of seasons that we don’t have any make up games scheduled for this week.

Large Hoagie with Mayo,
You’re right.

I’m rooting for the Green Wave, the Trojans, the Rebels, the Rockets to continue peaking.

Especially Tulane U. with a perfect regular Season record & U. Toledo with 1 loss.

Large Hoagie with Mayo 2,
I apologize.

In my earlier response listing the MW, AAC, MAC, SBC Top Teams with zero or 1 Loss I incorrectly IDentifed the Green Wave as undefeated. They R: 11-1.

I left off Liberty U. Flames who R undefeated entering this Matchup.

NMS U Aggies R making History as a Program & in Conference USA after mediocrity in the WAC & Five Years on the outer Limits as a homeless 85 scholarship Independent.

If Michigan wins, how about a Rose Bowl matchup with the Pac12 champ, for old times sake?
The committee could make it happen if they wanted to. Get the word rolling!

Alright you keyboard warriors. Let’s say this happens this weekend.

Oregon wins a field goal
Texas wins by 50
Bama beats Georgia by a field goal in overtime
FSU wins 12-10 no offensive Tds
Iowa upsets Michigan 21-14

Who gets in?

Dan likes Michigan,Georgia,Oklahoma State,Washington,Louisville,Toledo,Boise State,Liberty,Tulane,Appalachian State & Prairie View A&M in this weekend College Football Conference Championship games.

Would like to see Las Vegas get Big 12 Championship Football game to fill Pac 12 void. Oklahoma State Cowboys & Pac 12 castoff Arizona State Sun Devils are My co-favorite Big 12 Teams.
