    And Brian Kelly wants a better chance for a national title. Good luck trying to beat Alabama, Texas A&M, and Georgia while in their beastly prime Brian.

      Brian Kelly inked a 10-year, $95 million deal with LSU.

        Looks like $95 million. But if it's about money, isn't that ironic, given that revenue is the rationale for their independence? It's still a risk for them, especially when you think about what it was like before Kelly arrived.

          As a ND fan, I was ready for Kelly to move on. The program is in good shape compared to when Kelly took over and I think they'll get Fickell or promote their DC. Both are excellent recruiters.

            I'm hoping Jason Garrett gets the job.
            Sometimes I feel like my sell by date expired yesterday.

              Nah. I see Jason Garrett trying SMU, Duke, or FIU.

                        Jeff Traylor led the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners to a program first.

                        UTSA wins their first ever FBS conference title as they take the Conference USA crown after holding off Tyson Helton and a gamed Western Kentucky Hilltoppers squad inside the Alamodome, 49-41.

                        The Hilltoppers drew first blood as Bailey Zappe delivered a 60-yard bomb to Mitchell Tinsley 56 seconds into the game to give Western Kentucky a 7-0 lead.

                        UTSA QB Frank Harris replied for the Roadrunners with a 24-yard touchdown scamper to tie the game at 7.

                        Brayden Narveson connected on a 33-yard field goal to make it 10-7 Hilltoppers almost five minutes into the game.

                        Sincere McCormick gave UTSA their first lead of the ballgame at 14-10 with a two-yard touchdown run before the end of the first quarter.

                        Narveson closed the gap to a point at 14-13 early in the second quarter with a 34-yard field goal.

                        However, the Roadrunners grabbed the last 14 points of the second quarter to take a 28-13 halftime lead.

                        Traylor went into the bag of tricks and Harris threw a backward pass to Brenden Brady who delivered it to Zakhari Franklin for a 24-yard gain to set up Brady's six-yard touchdown run to make it 21-13 UTSA with 11:50 remaining in the first half.

                        After Narveson missed a 53-yard field goal, McCormick gored the Western Kentucky defense with a 65-yard touchdown run to make it 28-13 at halftime.

                        Halverson missed another 54-yard attempt to end the first half.

                        Things got worse for the Hilltoppers in the third quarter when Jerreth Sterns muffed a Lucas Dean punt that set up Harris finding Franklin from 14 yards out to make it 35-13.

                        Antonio Parks intercepted Zappe which set up McCormick completing his hat trick with 10:16 to go in the third quarter as the Roadrunners were up 42-13.

                        McCormick had 204 yards and three majors on 36 carries in the game.

                        But the Hilltoppers refused to go away.

                        Zappe found Tinsley a second time from 12 yards out to make it 42-20 with 8:17 remaining in the third.

                        After forcing a turnover on downs, Sterns atoned for his muffed punt as he hauled in a 13-yard strike from Zappe to make it 42-26 heading into the fourth. The Hilltoppers failed on the two-point conversion.

                        The momentum continued for Western Kentucky as they made the contest a one-possession in the fourth quarter.

                        Hunter Duplessis missed a 46-yard field goal which set up Kye Robichaux plunging into the end zone from a yard out to make it 42-34 with 11:01 left in regulation. The Hilltoppers converted the two-point conversion.

                        But Harris made it a two-possession game when De'Corian Clark snagged a 28-yard touchdown heave to make it 49-34 with 6:18 to go.

                        Harris completed 19 of 28 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns and also added 81 yards and a major on 11 carries.

                        Zappe won't quit though as he found Stearns from 34 yards out to make it 49-41 UTSA with 3:58 on the clock.

                        After forcing a punt, Zappe drove the Hilltoppers to midfield.

                        But in their last roll of the dice, Jahmal Sam picked off Zappe six yards short of the end zone to give UTSA the win.

                        Zappe threw for 577 yards and four touchdowns in losing effort, but the UTSA defense had three sacks and three takeaways as they take the C-USA crown and denying Western Kentucky their first C-USA title since they won back-to-back under Jeff Brohm in 2015 and 2016.

                          For the second time in three weeks, Kyle Whittingham and the Utah Utes clobbered Mario Cristobal and the Oregon Ducks.

                          The #17 ranked team in the nation and the Pacific-12 South Division champions thrashed the #10 ranked team in the country and Pacific-12 North Division winners in the Pacific-12 Conference Championship Game, 38-10, to capture the Pac-12 title inside Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium.

                          It is the first Pacific-12 title for the Utes and their 25th overall as they head to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl. It's also the Utes first New Year's Six Bowl/Bowl Championship Series bowl game since beating the Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2008 Sugar Bowl.

                          Cameron Rising had 170 passing yards and a touchdown along with 61 rushing yards and Tavion Thomas chipped in with 63 rushing yards and two scores.

                          But it was the Utes defense that took center stage.

                          The Utes sacked Ducks QB Anthony Brown four times and had two interceptions with one of them a pick-six from Devin Lloyd in the first quarter.

                          Travis Dye helped Oregon score the lone touchdown late in the fourth quarter with a two-yard touchdown run.

                                The Top Four of the College Football Playoff Picture is getting a little bit clearer!

                                Dave Aranda leads the #9 ranked Baylor Bears to their 10th conference title including their third Big 12 crown and their first Big 12 crown since 2014 after holding off and eliminated Mike Gundy and the #5 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys from College Football Playoff contention in the Big 12 Championship Game inside Arlington, TX's AT&T Stadium, 21-16.

                                Tyler Lacy recovered a Trestan Ebner lost fumble setting up Tanner Brown's 23-yard field goal to give the Cowboys a 3-0 lead despite having first and goal at the Baylor eight-yard line.

                                The Baylor defense came up huge for the first touchdown of the game when JT Woods intercepted Spencer Sanders and Blake Shapen found Ben Sims with a two-yard dink to give the Bears a 7-3 lead.

                                Sanders threw another pick before the end of the first quarter when Matt Jones hauled in the interception setting up Shapen tossing in his second touchdown of the game to Drew Estrada to give Baylor a 14-3 six seconds into the second quarter.

                                Shapen continues to be on fire as he threw his third touchdown pass of the game to Tyquan Thornton from 13 yards away to make it 21-3 Baylor with 5:29 to go in the first half.

                                Red zone touchdown efficiency continue to plague Oklahoma State when Sanders threw three straight incompletions from the six-yard line as Brown slotted home a 23-yard field goal to cut the deficit to 15 points, 21-6, at halftime. Hankins also had a 39-yard field goal attempted blocked before the end of the second quarter.

                                Sanders became sloppy with the ball again as he threw his third interception of the game to Jairon McVea to start the third quarter.

                                But the Cowboys defense stepped up and forced a turnover on downs deep into their territory setting up Dominic Richardson to bang his way into the end zone from four yards out to make it 21-13 with 7:09 left in the third.

                                Sanders threw his fourth interception of the game when Brayden Utley snatched it, but Isaiah Hankins missed a 39-yard field goal to start the fourth quarter.

                                Oklahoma State had their second takeaway of the game when Ebner had his second lost fumble of the game off a muffed punt.

                                However, the Bears defense stood tall especially in the red zone as Brown booted his third field goal of the game from 20 yards out to make it 21-16 with 8:17 left in regulation despite having first and goal at the Baylor one-yard line.

                                Gundy and the Cowboys had their last chance to steal the Big 12 title as they had first and goal from the two-yard line.

                                Dezmon Jackson was denied twice on first and second down. Then, Sanders threw an incompletion to Lacy on third down.

                                Gundy's last roll of the dice was another run by Jackson, but he was stuffed for no gain as the Baylor defense held on for the victory.

                                Baylor had three red zone touchdowns in their three attempts while Oklahoma State had one out of their five red zone chances. Baylor also had 14 points off their four takeaways while Oklahoma State had only six points from two Baylor turnovers.

                                Shapen completed 23 of 28 passes for 180 yards and three scores as one of the heroes for the Bears.

                                With Oklahoma State going down, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish's College Football Playoff chances get a tiny boost and now have to watch and put on their Iowa Hawkeyes, Houston Cougars, and Georgia Bulldogs rooting caps on. If one of those three teams lose, Notre Dame is in the College Football Playoffs.
