Initial Reactions to Week 13 of College Football

Still number 1

- ND stops all the madness at the number 1 spot and takes care of business against USC to book their spot in Miami.

- If anyone every wonders why their is so much SEC love around the place compared to other conferences just look at some of the rivalry games last night: Florida beat FSU, South Carolina beat Clemson, Vandy beat Wake Forest and Georgia crushed Georgia Tech. Not a good day for the ACC.

- Does anyone else think there's something seriously wrong with a 7-5 Wisconsin team going to the Big 10 Championship game??

- Stanfords win against UCLA sets the two teams up to play again on Friday night in the Pac-12 Championship game, meaning no Oregon, which is the first time in the Chip Kelly era that the Ducks won't be champions.

- Lane Kiffin really had a bad night calling the Notre Dame game, not going for another FG to bring them within a score late and also nullifying a TD with a timeout, not sure if he's cut out for the top spot.

- Who would have thought that after having 5 straight wins to open the season that West Virginia would only become bowl eligible this week against Iowa State?

- Two games that I watched that everyone should go back and see if you didn't: Ohio State v Michigan and Florida State v Florida. Both games were real classics within their rivalries and both had some HUGE hits in them, really good football games.

- Massive congratulations to Montee Ball who set the NCAA TD record with his 79th career score.

- After the Heisman debate this week, the plot gets a little murkier. Manti Te'o has now lead his team to an undefeated season and snagged another big interception on his resume whilst Jonny Football had 5 total TDs and broke the SEC single season yardage record against Mizzou. Tough to call.

- In football related news I asked my girlfriend to pick the winners of some of the games, she went 6-7, basing her picks purely off of names she went for Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State, Florida, Stanford and Notre Dame, with her only blip being Oregon State who she was torn about choosing. Maybe there's something in the names...
