College football this weekend. Wow.

Auburn 34-Alabama 28, after the “Tide” missed a “much too-long” field goal with one second left. The ball fell short, was caught in the end zone by Auburn and returned 109 yards for a touchdown.

Alabama Coach Nick Saban — too “big for his britches” lately anyway — learned a lesson.

It was proverbial bedlam after the game. “Holy cow!” the Auburn announcer said.

Ohio State almost lost to Michigan in the earlier game too. Michigan missed the two-point conversion as the clock ran you. I love college football.

  1. Florida State goes to #1, but who’s #2 and in line for the national title game? Ohio State (#3) is undefeated, but when a #4 beats a #1, kind of hard to not move the #4 into #2. You gotta love college football, huh? A 109-yeard return on a missed field goal. Yikes!

  2. Heck, even Iowa State beat West Virginia in triple overtime. Yes, Florida State in the “driver’s seat.” Would like to see them play Ohio State.

  3. I’d like to see Ohio State play anyone in the top ten.. or top 20 for that matter. The Big Ten is not very good this year. Michigan nearly got them and they are not very good. Go Blue!

  4. Sports Related request. Nevada Union Invitational Tournament (Basketball) is next week and we are looking for some host families to have at least two players from participating teams in the tournament.

    From Basketball Program Jeff Dellis:

    “NUIT is next week! We are looking for families to host student-athletes from participating schools for the nights of December 12 and 13. This is a rewarding experience for the young men AND the host families. Specifically, we need families to pick up boys after their Thursday game, feed them and give them a place to sleep: a bed, sleeping bag. Friday morning you bring your guests to NU where they will shadow our students. After their Friday game you will pick them up, feed them and give them a place to sleep. On Friday you bring back to NU for their last game. After their game their coach will tske them home.
