Gotta love this time of year, each week there are fewer & fewer games that mean anything on one hand, but on the other hand the games that do have conference championship ramifications become much more exciting!

It's probably about that time to start complaining about only having a 4 team playoff.

Looks like you will get your wish in the Semi-Final game in the Fargodome!!!
You plan on making the trip?

Congrats on the #4 seed
Well actually, my team is the 6 seed.
Our conference has 4 of the top 6 seeds.
Crazy.

Totally. Sounds fun.

BTW, did you come to Missoula when NDSU played here in 2015?
That was the ESPN game to kick off the season.

No. I'm not their typical travel anywhere fan, don't have the time or finances to do that. But would LOVE to make the trek to Oregon next fall!!!

We only go to one or two games a year. Love it, but then you miss all the other games that day. Plus at home the chair is more comfortable, the food is cheaper, I can drink beer, and the dog is with me. Those are pretty good reasons to watch from home!

ESPN College GameDay today is from the Sewer Cities! (oops, I meant Twin Cities, musta been a Freudian slip there!)
Who will take possession of the coveted Axe?
Both teams have a great running game, so I don't think that the weather favors either team. The weather may contribute to mistakes. The team that better takes advantage of these mistakes will win.

How about Michigan/Ohio State? Can the Wolverines pull off an upset?

Big 12. Shootout between K State and Iowa State has my attention too. On paper you gotta go with the Cyclones, but NEVER overlook a Klieman team.

What games are on your radar today?

Axe will be safe & sound, back at Camp Randall where it belongs!
Now we get a chance to avenge the whooping that the Buckeyes laid on us earlier this season.
That's gonna take some extreme scenarios to work out.

Should have put some money where my mouth was on that one.

I pull for B1G West teams, Badgers specifically.
Sadly, I don't see a path to anything better than 8-4 and I'm predicting Huskers to win the West, only to lose to Michigan for the B1G Championship
Wow, I kinda took wrong to a whole new level there!

Congrats to Ohio State, and I hope that they can finish the job!

For as bad as Ohio State looked on the first half, I thought they were done, but it was a different team in the second half. Can’t imagine they won’t have the 1 seed. LSU look tough also.

Scott, good luck against Weber tonight!

We'll be at the Bison game tomorrow for their win!

Our "world-famous" (lol) BSU Broncos are taking on Washington (Coach Peterson's team who was a previous Bronco coach) today in the Las Vegas Bowl.
Should be a great game!!
