4 Down Territory: One Game Left.......


College Football 150: Today we lead off with a plea to the powers that be in college football. This beautiful game deserves a better ending than playing the National Championship on a random Monday night in January. Find a way to work with the NFL and get a Saturday Night slot amid the NFL playoff season. This isn’t basketball. Part of the allure of Super Bowl Sunday is that a day of parties on a weekend afternoon creates an event that transcends the sport. College football deserves a weekend title game. Case in Point: Friday January 2, 1987 Penn State played Miami for the National Title. That game was a huge sporting event and delivered what is still the highest-rated college football telecast of all-time.
