History could be in the making this weekend, with a defensive player and a freshman highlight among this year’s finalists for the Heisman Trophy. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein were announced as candidates for football’s most prestigious trophy, which will be awarded Saturday night.
As expected, Notre Dame and Alabama will meet in the BCS National Championship Game to award another trophy to one of college football’s most successful programs. However, the complete bowl lineup was not without some surprises, including #15 Northern Illinois crashing the BCS party and 9-3 Louisiana Tech being left home for the holidays after their administration turned down an Independence Bowl invite.
Here is the full schedule of this year’s college football bowl games:
For a week that was supposed to be lacking in big games or traditional rivalries, this week sure gave us a lot of excitement. West Virginia and Baylor showed us an offensive shootout for the ages. Stanford became the latest Top Ten team to bite the dust. And Texas and Nebraska both needed fourth quarter comebacks to keep their conference title hopes alive.
Here are all the highlights from this week in college football.
After a Saturday full of big games and big upsets last weekend, things look to be a little calmer this week with a handful of ranked teams on byes and only two games between ranked teams. However, for most schools, this week marks the first games of conference play so there is still a lot on the line.
Here is what to watch for in college football this week.
After three weeks with a few upsets and a lot of blowouts, your remote will finally get its first real workout of the season this weekend, with four games between ranked teams all going on Saturday night. Here is a preview of all of this weekend’s action.
