    In 1995, Nebraska's closest game was a 14 point win vs. Washington State. Its next closest game was 23 points, I believe.

    Every year in November a bunch of strange things happen as teams have injuries, teams figure out other team's weaknesses, and balls bounce funny sometimes. I'll count the wins after they happen. All I can say, is whatever everyone thinks WILL happen, WILL NOT happen exactly the way everyone expects.
    I get that, just saying so far no one in this CFP has gone 15-0 so it is still a possibility to be the first to do so. That was all I was saying, I get we still have to win em all.

    I know but I could not get to the point in that one line. I know teasers are taboo, sorry if I broke the rule. Just trying to say this could be a season of more than a few firsts.

    It's teaser-lite -- but it passes the smell test with me....

    I agree. The folks who run the playoff seem to want to incorporate NFL venues along with the typical bowl game sites, plus they want to move it around the country so they don't get accused of regional bias. But for a January game, they ought to consider indoor venues only, other than perhaps in Miami and Southern California where it never gets cold; even Tampa a couple of years ago was pretty raw. Here's a rundown of the Championship and semi-final sites for the next several years:

    2018 season - Santa Clara, CA (semis in Dallas and Miami)
    2019 season - New Orleans (semis in Arizona and Atlanta)
    2020 season - Miami (semis in Pasadena and New Orleans)
    2021 season - Indianapolis (semis in Dallas and Miami)
    2022 season - Los Angeles (semis in Arizona and Atlanta)
    2023 season - Houston (semis in Pasadena and New Orleans)
    ROLL TIDE ROLL!

    Re: Alabama could do something never done before this season

    National Title should be played in a LARGE stadium indoors so weather is not an issue. If NFL is so big and such a money maker why are the stadiums so small in seating capacity? Bama should never play a NC game in a stadium with less than 100,000 seats. I mean we got fans who want to see the game live so why limit seating? The largest capacity stadiums are all college venues. We should play in those, and only in ones that the teams who own them never get to NC LOL. I think Tenn Mich etc would be good places, not like they will see a NC anytime soon LOL

    Looks like temps in Santa Clara are in the 40s at night in January......
    Donít forget. Kickoff is going to be much earlier than if the game was on the east coast. Maybe 5:30 pacific time. Game should be over by 10:30 pm local time. No 1 am finish like the past two years.

    The largest college stadiums aren't indoors.

    Well the 1894 Yale Bulldogs went 16-0. I wish we could see those two teams play. They were anchored by the 4x All-American 5í9 155lb Frank Hinkey. During his 4 years Yale went 52-1. That would certainly be a good matchup. **blue font**
