End of college football season already?

Here it is, time for weekend sports stress relief and amazingly enough we are at the end of college football season. You know what that means? Yes, rivalry games, and this weekend has already begun with Thursday evening’s Texas victory over Texas Tech and Mississippi State’s surprise OT victory in the Egg Bowl against Ole Miss.

Of course the rivalry game that everyone will be watching this weekend will be the Iron Bowl, when Alabama travels to Auburn. That game will decide the winner of the SEC West, but could possibly determine one of the teams for the college national championship.

The other match-ups with national championship implications are Florida State vs Florida — probably going to be an ugly day for Gator fans — and Ohio State going into the Big House to face the Michigan Wolverines. Both Florida State and Ohio State are undefeated, but will still have conference championship games even after winning this final game.

As for me, well, not exactly a thrilling college football season for my favorite teams, Tennessee and Kansas State. However they will be facing rivals Kentucky and Kansas respectively. Tennessee plays Kentucky for the ol’ whiskey barrel.

There are plenty of other big time rivalry games, including Oregon vs Oregon State, the Civil War; the battle for Los Angeles, USC vs UCLA; the fight for the Palmetto state, Clemson vs South Carolina.

What’s your big rivalry game for this weekend in college football, and what is the coveted trophy for which they are playing? In the NFL this week we have the rematch, already, between the Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs, this time in Arrowhead Stadium. Both teams are coming off tough losses, but I think the Chiefs avenge their loss to the Broncos.

But the game which could be the prelude to the NFC Championship pits New Orleans, “Who Dat”, against the 10-1 Seattle Seahawks. The game is in Seattle so I’m leaning to the Seahawks becoming 11-1.

Hope you all had a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving, and after the turkey, there’s always lots of football!

  1. Well I just have to say, either way it goes, WAR EAGLE! What an amazing team this year. Good luck AUBURN TIGERS! Kick ’em in the butt big blue!

  2. Thanks Colonel, and hope your Thursday was meaningful and satisfying. My Beavers are destined to knock off the mighty Ducks of Oregon. We have gone down the last 6 years, but Oregon looks vulnerable!

  3. Col. West…you mention all these SEC games and you leave out UGA? I realize we didn’t have the greatest season this year, but we’re still better than UF and you mentioned them. Definitely taking my Dawgs over the techies.

  4. This is why I love Colonel West, fellow Army vet, loves football, genuine and he understands real americans. I pray that he can save this country.

  5. Love You Col. West. Also LOVE BAMA!! I know Auburn has the momentum going into the game. However, Bama will slowly show them who’s the Champions!! Roll Tide!!

  6. Roll Tide Allen!! Do you know what the difference is between a 4 year old Alabama fan and a 100 year old Auburn fan is? The 4 year old has seen more national titles!. LOL All in fun and RTR

  7. Kansas State won’t put up sixty plus points like their previous two trips but I can see 42-17 win. Ohio State rolls Michigan
    Clemson wins a nail biter
    Florida State covers by half then the scout team puts on 28 more but that’s just me ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Allen West, how can you be from Atlanta and not mention UGA v. GT? Your Atlanta native card is hereby revoked! ๐Ÿ˜‰ GT by 5 points. THWG!!!!!!!!!!!!
