College football playoff matchups announced: arguments ensue

The college football playoff final rankings were announced Sunday and it will be No. 1 Alabama versus 4. Washington, and 2. Clemson versus 3. Ohio State.

It’s Bowl season!!! Watching a lot of football today

   I am spending most of this day inside, watching the first of the US college bowl games for this bowl season.  Some will say these are meaningless football games, but that didn’t stop me from watching the meaningless Saskatchewan Roughriders this season, and it will not stop me watching these games either.
