Notre Dame gets made fun of a lot for their lack of success in big games, but wouldn’t Nebraska fans kill for what they have?

-ESPN Stats & Info put out a stat that Notre Dame is 0-7 since 1998 in BCS or New Year’s Six games, being outscored by 161 points and all 7 losses being by 14+ points

-That’s not a fun thing to deal with, but think about the 8 straight bowl losses Nebraska had at one time in its history and compare that to now…that doesn’t seem so bad, does it?

Happy New Year! Ohio State pummels Clemson and offers a refreshing championship game, and Jake couldn’t be happier….what about Sip, though?

-Although it feels like we see Clemson/Alabama every year, don’t forget it was LSU/Clemson last year, so it technically wouldn’t have been what feels like an 8th straight year of this matchup. But it didn’t end up that way, anyways

-How about the Buckeyes? 6 TD passes for Justin Fields, who was battling an injury for the whole 2nd half, and Ohio State blew the doors off of Trevor Lawrence and company. Does this make the championship that much more intriguing to you? And what a showing for the B1G this makes now!

-Also, some good news for Nebraska, with JoJo Domann returning and a commitment from Hawaii

The CFP is set, with Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Notre Dame clinching berths

-Notre Dame got smoked by Clemson on Saturday, but remained ahead of Texas A&M and others for the final spot….and Ohio State barely got by Northwestern…will either of those teams have any shot vs. Bama/Clemson?

-Are you expecting higher scoring games in the Big Ten out of the chute or ugly offense?

-Is anyone in Clemson’s ballpark right now in college football?

Nicole Griffith (10/11 News sports reporter) – Full Hour

-When did the SEC turn into the Big 12 and Pac-12 with lack of defense? Are you enjoying the high scoring games or miss the lower scoring games with actual defense played?

-Do we think that Big Ten football will look similar to this, with high scoring games and poor defense? Usually, defenses are ahead of offenses for a week or two, but we will see…maybe not this year?

-Are Iowa State and Kansas State the two best teams in the Big 12? Or Oklahoma State…

-2 Monday Night Football games tonight AGAIN with Broncos/Patriots and Rams/Saints…who you got?

What a fun weekend it was for college football…offenses were booming and big wins were had

-Does the SEC play defense anymore? LSU had another hideous defensive performance in a loss against Missouri (Hey, Bo!); Alabama and Ole Miss are still scoring points at the moment, and Sip’s boy JIMBO got a big, big win against Dan Mullen, who wants 90,000 fans in the stands next week at home!

-Also, Clemson takes care of Miami, Mike Leach has lost his offense already, an EPIC Red River Rivalry ends in an Oklahoma win, and how about Kansas State and Iowa State…the teams to beat in Big 12?

-Other takeaways from the weekend…
