Auburn's Iron Bowl win starts new debates; best of Rivalry Week
Chip Patterson and Tom Fornelli review Auburn-Alabama, Missouri-Texas A&M, Florida State-Florida, Ohio State-Michigan, USC-UCLA and more.
Every Sunday, Tom Fornelli and I sit down to review the weekend that was in college football for the rewind edition of the Eye On College Football Podcast.
Included in this week's podcast:
-- Beyond the last play, how and why Auburn Tigers was able to knock off Alabama Crimson Tide in the Iron Bowl.
-- Missouri Tigers 's impressive defensive performance against Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M Aggies sets up an awesome, but unlikely, SEC Championship Game. We preview the matchup.
-- Braxton Miller and Carlos Hyde have both missed time this year, but when they are together Ohio State Buckeyes has one of best backfield duos in the country.
-- Only two BCS conference undefeated teams left; yet we still more debating than ever. We touch on Auburn AD Jay Jacobs' comments about potentially being left out of the title game. [SPOILER: Our message? Win on Saturday first.]
-- How Michigan State Spartans rode its defense to a win against Minnesota Golden Gophers and how they stack up against the Buckeyes.
-- Can Arizona State Sun Devils take down Stanford Cardinal now that the Sun Devils have home field advantage for the title game. More importantly, can it be done without Marion Grice ?
-- Wisconsin Badgers kissed its BCS dreams goodbye in a home loss to Penn State Nittany Lions . It was weird.
-- A 10-2 Duke Blue Devils team won the Coastal Division outright. Any chance the Blue Devils scare Florida State Seminoles in the ACC Championship Game?
-- Thoughts on Ed Orgeron and Southern California Trojans after running out of steam against UCLA Bruins
-- Heimsan chatter in a wide open race and best individual performances of the weekend.
