Things are starting to wind down now - the concrete of the 2015 college football season starting to set. This really should be how things look come New Years Eve - when the two play off games will be played at the Orange Bowl ( Miami ) and the Cotton Bowl ( Dallas ).

So right now it is Clemson v Notre Dame in the Orange Bowl - AND Clemson has already beat them this season. How crazy is that. October 3rd, 24 - 22. The closest game that the Tigers played this season. Wake Forrest this week, a sinking fast South Carolina Thanksgiving weekend. NC in the ACC Championship. Alabama v Ohio State in high cotton.

I have not watched Ohio State or Notre Dame this year, but I did watch Alabama destroy LSU and their Heisman guy. The SC Tiger Nation had better hope that they were a little sleepy from the travel this past weekend in Syracuse , because the team that I watched  play would go down in flames to the Crimson Tide.

Alabama has a cup cake game and then the IRON BOWL - which, just like Florida for us, can never ever be ruled out as a gimme. Weird things happen. ( that said, its should be a gimme for the Tide )

All of Iowa is wearing Sparty Green right now, as one loss #9 Michigan State at last makes their way to Columbus for the Buckeyes ONLY game of the years so far. Would a one loss Ohio State make way for the undefeated Iowas ? I am not at all sure, especially with Alabama sitting at #2.

Notre Dame has Boston College - the battle of the Catholics, with Sanford waiting for Turkey day ( again Iowa and Oklahoma State dresses as trees )

5. Iowa
6. Oklahoma State
7. Oklahoma
9. Michigan State
10. Baylor
11. Stanford
12. Michigan
13. Utah

18. TCU
19. Houston
20. Northwestern

Slim pickings for the one dominate SEC - but we cannibalize our own.
