Final week of the season and a BUNCH of good games (Friday is even a full day)! I'll be saying who I am cheering for that will help ND get to a possible NY6 bowl and for what I personally want in the playoffs: Georgia, OSU, TCU, and Clemson (I do not want a second SEC team in the CFP this year).

Thursday Games
6:00 - Miss St @ #20 Ole Miss - ESPN - I'll be rooting for Miss St as that will hurt the SEC SoS.

Friday Games
11:00 - #19 Tulane @ #24 Cincinnati - ABC - I am rooting for Cincinnati as they could be the non-Power5 Champ that ND would face in the Cotton Bowl.
11:00 - Baylor @ #23 Texas - ESPN - I am rooting for Texas because it helps TCU solidify their spot in the top 4.
2:30 - NC State @ #17 North Carolina - ABC - I am rooting for UNC to strengthen both Clemson's and ND's schedule.
3:30 - #18 UCLA @ California - FOX - Not sure who I am rooting for on this; this is more because i think it could be a close game, but I dont think it has much bearing on the CFP landscape.
6:30 - Florida @ #16 Florida State - ABC - I am rooting for FSU again to bolster Clemson and hurt the SEC SoS.

Morning Games
11:00Georgia Tech @ #1 Georgia - ESPN - I wouldnt mind an upset here, but Georgia can still get in with a loss here I think.
11:00 - #3 Michigan @ #2 Ohio State - FOX - I hate both teams, but OSU needs to win here because Michigan's schedule is a joke and there is no way they should get in after a loss unless chaos happens. Also makes our close loss to OSU look better.
11:00 - South Carolina @ #8 Clemson - ABC - I am rooting for Clemson here straight up to get to the CFP

Afternoon Games - Bunch of middle of the road B1G games in this time slot that should be competitive, but have no effect on the CFP.
2:00 - #25 Louisville @ Kentucky - SECN - I am rooting for Louisville here, again, to bolster Clemson and hurt the SEC.
2:30 - Auburn @ #7 Alabama - CBS - I am rooting for Auburn to get the upset here as there is a chance Alabama somehow still slips in, they are overranked based on their body of work this year.
2:30 - #9 Oregon @ #21 Oregon St - ABC - I am rooting for Oregon St to get the upset, just helps knock off a team ahead of ND.
3:00 - Iowa State @ #4 TCU - FOX - Rooting for TCU straight up to win out.
3:00 - Michigan St @ #11 Penn State - FS1 - I am rooting for Michigan St here as Penn State is easily the most overrated team in college football.

Evening Games
6:00 - #5 LSU @ Texas A&M - ESPN - I am rooting for Texas A&M for obvious reasons...
6:30 - #15 Notre Dame @ #6 USC - ABC - Go Irish!!!
7:00 - Kansas @ #12 Kansas St - FOX - I am rooting for Kansas to get the upset and bump K-St below ND.
9:30 - #13 Washington @ Washington St - ESPN - I am rooting for Washington St to get the upset and knock UW below ND


These are my interests, let me know if you want these games to play out a different way. I believe if all the teams I root for win, Notre Dame will be in the Cotton Bowl (Notre Dame's best hope to make it to a NY6) and the CFP will Georgia, OSU, TCU, and Clemson (Unless there is a major upset in Championship Week of course)

UCLA - Cal definitely kind of tough to call.  You'd think clearly Cal since we played them and won.  Help out our own SOS.  However, if Cal beats UCLA after USC just beat UCLA, it makes that win look a little less high profile for USC...which could also make a potential win for the Irish this weekend look a little bit less high profile.  

FSU - Florida I agree with, I just hope it isn't a blowout.  Don't wanna give the committee any reason to push FSU past the Irish.  Which, for all intents and purposes, shouldn't really happen regardless of this score as long as the Irish take care of USC.

LFG!!!!!

I've heard reports that Kiffin ditches Ole Miss on Friday and takes the Auburn job.  Kiffin has used the usual coach-speak, saying he hasn't accepted a job at another school.

Hmmm.....

https://www.si.com/college/2022/11/22/lane-kiffin-meets-with-players-auburn-rumors-swirl-coaching-ole-miss

He told the players he's staying.

Freeze is likely the next Auburn coach IMO

Sports Illustrated, Fox Sports, and Auburn media all report that at his meeting with the team, Kiffin didn’t say he’s staying. 
He said what all these coaches say. His focus is on the Mississippi State game, and he hasn’t accepted a job offer from any place else. 
He might not go to Auburn.  But he hasn’t said he’s not going. The implication is the job was offered and his agent is working on the details. 
Freeze might be their guy. I’ve read that he’s also a candidate. 
 

I always feel bad for the families of these coaches. Moving so often has to be very hard on them.

He said "any reports out there about his accepting another offer were totally false."

Regardless, I wouldn't trust Kitten with 2 cents. Dude is a scumbag. And I don't doubt that he or his agent had a call with Ole Miss. It's a business. 

I know a few Ole Miss fans, and they are hoping/predicting Freeze.
