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.

All eyes were on the Heisman contenders in Week 13, but losses for Johnny Manziel, Marcus Mariota and the ongoing Jameis Winston investigation have apparently sent the race into disarray. Tom and I open the Rewind by reflecting on the "good old days;" when the Heisman race began in November, not July.

Join us for a loaded Week 13 Rewind; as we tackle the five major conference races and some of the most notable performances on a day filled with stat-stuffing and basketball scores.

Included in the podcast:

-- Oklahoma State Cowboys impressive showing in slowing down Baylor Bears , and how the loss could keep the Bears from a BCS game.

-- A big day for the Grand Canyon State as Arizona Wildcats takes down Oregon Ducks and Arizona State Sun Devils punches a ticket to the Pac-12 title game to face Stanford Cardinal

-- How Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M Aggies were contained by LSU Tigers and what that means for next week's regular season finale against Missouri Tigers

-- What can we expect from Florida Gators - Florida State Seminoles ? Popular belief is that at least one staff change is coming for the Gators. Is Will Muschamp safe?

-- Getting excited about Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan State Spartans in the Big Ten title game. Also, re-rating the Big Ten against the other major conferences.

-- Another edition of "Bowl, No Bowl;" projecting the postseason future for Southern Methodist Mustangs , Rutgers Scarlet Knights , Syracuse Orange , Florida Atlantic Owls , San Jose State Spartans , Colorado State Rams , Wyoming Cowboys , Central Michigan Chippewas , Mississippi State Bulldogs , Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks , Troy Trojans and South Alabama Jaguars .
