While many coaches are gearing up for bowl season, it's that time of year when many other underperforming college college coaches get their walking papers. This year, some big names--including the winningest coach in Cal history and a guy who won a national title less than two years ago--headline the list of coaches who have been fired.
Sadly, we’ve come to the end: the last week of college football’s regular season. And while many teams are already in the stable waiting to find out their bowl opponents, there is still a lot of action this week with a spot in the national-title game and at least seven conference championships still up in the air.
Here all the highlights from this final week in the top 25:
Maryland announced Monday that it was accepting an invitation to join the Big Ten conference. Rutgers is expected to make a similar announcement on Tuesday. So, for those keeping track at home, the Big Ten will have 14 teams, the Big 12 has 10, and San Diego State will be in the Big East. Got it?
Here's more on the Big Ten announcement as well as some other news and notes from around college football:
Little 3-year-old Dillan Warden was recently playing in his front yard when he felt nature call. The toddler is being potty trained and, since he wasn’t close to a bathroom, he did what any young boy in the situation would do —- he unzipped and let it fly. Instead of being rewarded for keeping his big boy pants dry, he found himself slapped with a $2,500 fine for public urination.
Last week's showdowns knocked several teams from the ranks of the unbeaten and shook up the rankings. This week, we get two of the biggest games of the season, with Alabama-LSU and Oregon-USC setting the stage for conference- and national-championship runs.
But the excitement doesn't stop there. Here is what to watch for around the top 25:
This week’s rankings will look very different when the new AP Poll comes out following a Saturday full of upsets. Four Top Ten teams fell this week and five ranked teams suffered their first losses of the season. Meanwhile, Collin Klein and Manti T’eo boosted their Heisman chances while Alabama, Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame continued to make their case for a shot in the national title game.
Here are all highlights from a wild week in college football.
It's always a sad moment when you realize that college football's regular season is more than halfway done, but it should still be a fun week with lots of exciting games on tap. Six of the top 10 teams in the country play ranked opponents, and 13 top 25 teams face challenges on the road.
Here is what to watch this week in college football:
For most teams, we’ve reached the halfway point of the regular season and the conference title races are starting to take shape. Last week gave us exciting finishes and monster upsets, and we’ve got another good slate of games this week with three big games between ranked teams and 11 ranked teams playing on the road.
