    12/20/19: 2 Bowl Games
    Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl (Mid-American vs. Conference USA): Buffalo 31 Charlotte 9

    Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl (Mid-American vs. WAC): Kent State 51 Utah State 41

    12/21/19: 6 Bowl Games
    Mitsubishi Motors Las Vegas Bowl (Pack 12 vs. WAC Conference Champ): Washington 38 Boise State 7

    R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl (Sunbelt Conference Champ vs. Conference USA Runner-Up): Appalachian State 31 UAB 17

    New Mexico Bowl (WAC vs. Mid-American) San Diego State 48 Central Michigan 11

    Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl (Conference USA Winner vs. AAC): Florida Atlantic 52 SMU 28

    Camelia Bowl (Sunbelt Conference vs. Conference USA) Arkansas State 34 Florida International 26

    FBC Mortgage Cure Bowl (Independent FBS Team vs. Sunbelt Conference): Liberty 23 Georgia Southern 16



    Overall How I'd Rank Conferences By Performance (only 1 Power 5 Team has played so far being Washington so am not including those conferences yet):
    AAC (most powerful of the Group of 5 Conferences this year despite large gap between group of 5 and Power 5): 0-1 SMU losing to Florida Atlantic

    WAC Conference 1-2 (Conference Champion Lost to Power 5 Team). Boise State losing to Washington of course is no surprise as Washington is a really tough program that's been known to give anyone playing them in a big game issues lower seeded or not.

    Sunbelt Conference (Conference Champion Won): 2-1 Appalachian State won Multiple National Championships in FCS Football (kind of wonder how they'd do against North Dakota State now). Georgia Southern beat Appalatian State during the year but lost today and dropped a number of games through the season; like Appalatian State they're another program that's moved up to FBS football from the FCS in the last 6 years or so.

    Conference USA 1-3 (although conference champion won very impressive, it was their last seeds that lost and their runnerup UAB lost to a power ranked Appalatian State team). Florida Atlantics impressive win puts them on the map though not to mention UAB didn't lose by much and was up at one point I believe despite playing kind of flat at times through the season.

    Overall, impressive performance by Florida Atlantic against a tough AAC team (3rd in the West bracket) as SMU only lost 2 games this year against conference rivals Navy and Memphis. Florida Atlantic lost to Ohio State at the beginning of the year 21-45 then later 14-48 against AAC team Central Florida and then mid-October to conference rival Marshall by small margin 31-36. Florida Atlantic's coach left for Ol' Miss after winning the conference championship by a large margin against UAB. They've looked pretty good at the end of the year.

    FIU and Charlotte being the last seeds of the 8 bowl eligible teams from Conference USA lost I see. I'm kind of surprised by Buffalo's margin of victory as they've kind of been on/off some games but when they get going they can put some points on the board.

    Mid-American: 2-1 I thought Mid-American conference may go winless with exception of maybe Buffalo winning due to good offense despite being a mid-seeded Mid-American team they can score efficiently. Out of the "Group of 5" conferences Mid-American's been pretty weak this year. A lot of the top seeds lost in big blowouts at the beginning of the year to Power 5 teams (Top Seeds Miami of Ohio 5-76 against Ohio State in September and Central Michigan 0-61 to Wisconsin and Western Michigan 17-51 against Michigan State or 33-52 to Syracuse to see how stack up to Power 5 teams for example). I still see the conference runner-up Central Michigan lost by a fairly wide margin today though.

    ************Independent (3 of the 6 Independent Teams are Bowl Eligible this year): As not a conference not worth tracking performance but should be noted Liberty beat Georgia Southern.

    Overall, the story of the day I think is Florida Atlantic. The Mountain West's Conference losses today have me re-thinking how good the teams in that conference are after Utah State's Loss to Kent State in a high scoring game. San Diego State blowing out Central Michigan was impressive though.








    FCS NCAA Division 1 Games:
    12/21/2019 FCS Playoff Semifinals:
    North Dakota State (Fargo) 42 vs. Montana State (Bozeman) 14
    *North Dakota State has won 15 National Championships (3 in the "College Division" before it re-named to Division 2 then 5 in Division 2 until moving to Division 1 FCS Division in 2004 then winning 7 National Championships since 2010 which is very impressive; they're always a contender any given year)

    James Madison (Harrisonburg, Virginia) 30 vs. Weber State (Ogden, Utah) 14



    12/21/19: Celebration Bowl
    (SWAC Champion vs. MIAC Chambion; both conferences don't participate in the FCS playoffs and have had this conference champs faceoff since 2015):
    North Carolina A&T (Greensboro, North Carolina) 64 vs. Alcorn State (Alcorn, Mississippi) 44
    North Carolina A&T wins Celebration Bowl in record-setting fashion

    Only the red areas are links.

    After some of the game scores, I linked to game summary's for lesser known teams that aren't nationally talked about. Just thought it was worth recognizing local programs involved and how results played out.

    For FBS just 1 link being the espn scoreboard at the top.

    8 out of 14 Invited from Conference USA: 2-4
    7 out of 14 Invited from Mid-American 2-2
    3 out of 6 Independent Teams: 1-1

    Few Random Thoughts Since Last Weekend:

    A) Ugly end to the Pittsburgh and Eastern Michigan Game as the Eastern Michigan's QB was ejected right at the end of a competitive game; not the best way to end a senior year and a bit frustrating still cause if he would've spiked the ball they may've gotten a field goal before the half but in any case was an interesting end to the game with a ref inadvertantly struck: WATCH: Eastern Michigan QB ejected after inadvertently slapping referee in Quick Lane Bowl

    B) Iowa had a great game and USC's 25 point loss was the largest in a bowl game since being shutout by Michigan 49-0 in 1948.

    C) One of the most evenly matched bowl games so far with Oklahoma State and Texas A&M I missed entirely but really want to check some of the highlights on when I get the chance.

    D) Just watched the Cheez-It bowl after work and Air Force looked pretty good on offense. I wasn't aware they have the 2nd best 3rd down conversion percentage in FBS football with less than 5 yards to go. Air Force ran a lot of trick running plays and Washington just maybe should've taken the field goals earlier in the game when they had the chance as 2 red zone drives resulted in nothing going for it on 4th. The time of possession kept Washington State's chances down as Airforce kept the clock running spending most of the time marching down field with a great dive to the endzone on the final score resulting in the player getting injured right as he reached over the pylon.

    E) LA Tech was at the top of their bracket in Conference USA most of the year and dropped a few at the end of the year to lose their spot playing in the Conference Championship. Still, they played Miami on one of Miami's off years and were underdogs by 1 touchdown but won the game getting 10 wins for the first time ever since LA Tech moved up to FBS Division 1 football in 1988.

    End result for Miami was:
    1) The first program ever to be shut-out in the Independence Bowl

    2) this was also the first time Miami's been shut-out in 25 years in a Bowl Game

    3) first time in 40 years a Power 5 team was shut-out by a non-Power 5 team in a bowl game

    4) 3rd team in FBS football history to be featured in bowl games 2 years in a row scoring a combined total of 3 or fewer points.

    How does this happen?

    Are there recruiting off years or just having the right talent but needing to hone their consistency and skills somewhat? Urban Meyer makes a case for this at the 6:40 mark seen here I remember watching earlier this month https:// www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=404&v=1AQeJjlawHs&feature=emb_logo

    The Belk Bowl turned out to be one of the most exciting football games of the week (I wonder what this will be called next year as Belk's sponsership just ended). What a wild end as the draft prospects of QB/Wide Reciever Lynn Bowden went through the roof. This and the Eastern Michigan/Pittsburgh game the week before were 2 very hotly contested contests that on paper seemed pretty run of the mill bowls of teams I really hadn't followed all season.

    Some of the bigger bowls were pretty good too. The Baylor team needs to improve their O-Line in the off season and great win for Georgia. Oregon's defense played phenomenal against Wisconsin as well. Just a lot of games to comment on...

    Some surprises I felt were the extent of Texas's win against Utah as was Cincinnati's win against Boston College whom Ohio State's offensive coordinator will be head coaching next year. The Minnesota and Auburn result surprised me as well.

    Ending FCS Update:
    Jan. 11 FCS Championship (1-AA): North Dakota State (Fargo, North Dakota) 28 vs. James Madison (Harrisonburg, Virginia) 20
    *The conference champ of the Missouri Valley Conference vs. Conference Champ of Colonial Conference in the championship. Despite North Dakota State having won 8 titles in 9 years and the winningest record since 2010 for FCS play, they've also won more games than any other FCS school founded after 1897. Still James Madison was favored. A fake kick touchdown and interception in the endzone to end the game marked the end though and yet another national championship for North Dakota State.




    Ending FBS Update (40 Bowl Games Overall Including the ChampionShip; therefore 78 Eligible Teams for the 2019 Season):
    12/31/19:

    On a side note, I actually wonder if North Carolina may give Clemson a run for their money next year again like they did this year only play more consistently through the entire year. They blew out Temple and Texas looked pretty good too. Some projections have of course been floating around these past 3 weeks for the 2020 season but will have to see how things progress...

    The beginning of the year also marks an interesting time for most of the FCS vs. FBS matchups. I looked through the ending FCS Coaches Poll of 2019 and cross referenced a few of these higher ranked teams on FBschedules for the 2020 season just to see what there was. I see FCS teams are back again to an 11 game regular season schedule next year (more on why this is here: https://www.foxsports.com/college-football/story/push-for-12-game-fcs-season-may-return-041717).

    In any case, I see North Dakota State playing Oregon as can be seen amongst other places here: Future North Dakota State Football Schedules | FBSchedules.com (also, runnerup James Madison plays North Carolina their 3rd game of the season I see). I think North Dakota State's losing some Seniors as is Oregon but should be an interesting match-up as the last power FBS team North Dakota State played I believe was Iowa and they eaked out an upset back in 2016. Oregon's next two non-conference games before Pac-12 play begins is against Ohio State and Hawaii as well.

    The final rankings will be updated soon on the AP for FBS play as can be seen here now that the final game's over: College Football Rankings 2019 Coaches Poll and Playoff Rankings last updated the 8th of December before Bowl Season but the AP and CBS ones have just been updated (CBS one really doesn't seem very accurate at the moment to reflect bowl games very well though). I'd put Oregon as number 4 as their defense looked really good against Wisconsin but undersand them ending at number 5 on the AP with Georgia sticking around. Notre Dame I think deserves top 10 at the very least as they blew out Iowa State. They should've been given a top 10 team in the bowls but contracted bowl games and offset selections don't really make final rankings too easy outside the top 3.

    Willie Taggart who got fired from Florida State was hired as Head Coach by Florida Atlantic since Lane Kiffin stepped down to transfer to Ol'Miss. Looks like a few Florida State players transferred to Florida Atlantic as well reuniting with Mr. Taggart. Wide receiver D' Marcus Adams and defensive end Malcolm Lamar will have to sit out a year per NCAA guidelines then have 2 years eligibility left starting the 2021 season per NBCSports: Florida State football transfers reunite with Willie Taggart at FAU

    It'll be interesting to see how Baylor's former head coach Matt Rhule will work alongside the former assistant to LSU's offensive coordinator whom many give credit for helping transition into the team's spread offense for 2019 when they work together on the Carolina Panthers next season.

    Virginia Tech's head coach Justin Fuente is said to be in the running for the Baylor position. Of special note is Virginia Tech Defensive Coordinator/Associate Head Coach Bud Foster retiring. He's widely regarded as one of the best defensive coordinators in college football and has been with the Virginia Tech program since 1987. Before that he played at Murray State from 1977-1980 at Strong Safety and Outside Linebacker before moving onto being a graduate assistant there 2 years then joining the coach staff there until the end of 1986 when he went onto Virginia Tech.

    It looks like they're going through with it. I've only seen a few minutes of the games that have been played so far, and they sound weird with no fans present. This is going to be the weirdest season ever, if it even finishes.

    I got to see parts of the Duke-ND game and the Clemson-WF games. It was nice to see some football even if the season is a precarious one.

    It's going to be a tenuous situation each week. Teams are going to end up playing different numbers of games, possibly even within their respective conferences, and the playoff is going to be more controversial than usual. Then, the worst case scenario is that the season is called due to the spread of C-19.

    In the meantime, I highly enjoyed the beatdown of Loserville by the 'Canes. I'm still trying to process the idea of a year with no Governor's Cup. :(

    Today was the first time since 2005, that I was not at the Bulldogs’ season opener.
