Derek Mason and Bret Bielema, watch out. If you lose to Missouri in the SEC, the coach gets fired.

With Missouri coming up next week, the interim coach (likely to be Randy Shannon) has a decent chance at a W.



Placing any faith in Randy Shannon as a HC is an exorcise in futility. Great DC not so much HC.

This has to be the best Top 25 Ive seen in 17 years. I've been cautiously optimistic regarding the Canes this year. After their beat down of ND they still have to prove it to me and finish out their last 2 games. The Committee ranked Clemson ahead of them in the CFP standings which will further the narrative of them being underdogs. It's to bad Georgia lost to Auburn, I would have liked to see them meet Alabama undefeated for the SEC championship

That UCF game was one of the most exciting I’ve watched all season. Not much defense on display consistently from either side. The last 5 minutes was great.

I don’t think our game today will be nearly as interesting.

I love rivalry week. Always full of chaos!

It also helps when we've won 12 of the last 13 games against Michigan.

The CFP needs to add a provision that if they are going to stay with a 4 team playoff that they must be a conference winner. Either that or scrap the whole thing, cut the 1023 bowl games down to 24 and go back to the old way of determining a national champion.

1vs 3
2vs 4 would be more desirable too

It has been obvious for a long time that an 8-team playoff is needed. The problem is that ESPN (Disney) controls college football and the bowl games. ESPN is interested only in generating television revenue. They do not care about determining a national champion.

Yes an 8 team playoff would be nice. In fact the bowls are already there. And those stadium owners could get a winfall if they would do this. You could even rotate the feeder bowls for this.

I think UCF deserved a top-4 final ranking.
