ESPN bowl audience up 12% versus last year heading into championship game

  ESPN bowl audience up 12% versus last year heading into championship game With the Georgia-Oklahoma All-SEC matchup coming up in the national championship game tonight, there’s a lot of focus on how low the ratings might go. While the matchup tonight, the playoff selection process, and UCF claiming a national championship for their own has brought a lot of scrutiny to the current four team structure, what about the rest of bowl season?

The 1948 NCAA football season finished with two unbeaten and untied teams; Michigan and Clemson. Michigan was the first place choice for the majority (192 of the 333) voters in the AP Poll, but didn’t play in the postseason because of a no-repeat rule for Big Nine schools.

College football comes down to five basic things, four of which you can control. (UPDATED at the bottom.) These guys aren't allowed to move beyond the line if the quarterback's still planning on throwing. The holder can have his knee on the ground, and it doesn't really count.

While we're still rehashing the details of the thrilling national championship game and talking about quirky stories from it, college football season is officially over.

It seemed like September was merely a few weeks ago, and position battle arguments are still fresh in our minds. How is it that the bowl season came and went, along with the relevance of debating which teams deserved a spot in the College Football Playoff?

As of Friday, there are 230 days until college football returns, but there are several places you can still find it before then. Here are five of the best you might not think of - in case you can't wait for spring games and training camps.

1. The Senior Bowl

OK, so all the bowl games that have real implications have been played, but there's technically still one more. The Senior Bowl is set for Satuday, Jan. 27 (2:30 p.m. ET, NFL Network).

With six national title game appearances in nine years, Alabama’s run surpasses all other recent dynasties

  With six national title game appearances in nine years, Alabama’s run surpasses all other recent dynasties Saying that the Alabama Crimson Tide football program under Nick Saban is one of the most dominating dynasties in college football history isn’t a very bold statement. College football has seen a lot of good programs rise and fall over the years. A few lucky ones find themselves atop the heap for two or three years in a row. The rarest of them all, however, create a dynastic era where their program is the one that defines the entire sport for a decade.

The 1959 NCAA University Division football season saw Syracuse University crowned as the national champion by both final polls, the AP writers poll and the UPI coaches polls. A major rule change widened the goal posts from 18 ft 6 in ( 5 .64 m) to 23 ft 4 in (7.11 m)

The 1950 NCAA football season finished with the unbeaten and untied Oklahoma Sooners (9–0) being the consensus choice for national champion.

Sure, most of these players have never been on the same team before, but they're still among the best in college football this season and are several top NFL Draft prospects. While the official roster isn't scheduled for release until next week, tons of players have already accepted invitations to participate, including Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield, San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny and Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph.

2. Condensed replays

Replays of full games are great and all, but the Big Ten Network's Football in 60 (easily found on BTN2Go.com) is the best way to watch a game without losing an entire afternoon. It's exactly what it sounds like - a game replayed in an hour with things like reviewed calls and timeouts edited out. It's a great way to relive the glory of some of the best games on demand.

3. Sports YouTube channels

5 places you can still find college football until next season: epa06426121 Georgia Bulldogs running back Sony Michel is swarmed by the Alabama Crimson Tide defense during the second half of the College Football Playoff National Championship game between the University of Alabama and the University of Georgia at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, late 08 January 2018.

If you're not interested in waiting around for your team's best games to pop up on TV, you could try a variety of YouTube channels. Team- or conference-specific channels - like the SEC, ACC Digital Network or Big Ten Network - feature an abundance of highlights from this season as well as past ones. But random, unaffiliated channels are also an option. One already has the complete national championship game available, and it's not challenging to find several other full matchups.

The 1955 NCAA football season saw the Oklahoma Sooners win the national championship after going 10-0-0. Although the final poll was taken before the postseason bowl games, Oklahoma played against the nation's other unbeaten and untied (10-0-0) team, the Maryland Terrapins

4. Last Chance U

It may not be about a national championship team, but the Netflix docuseries Last Chance U is still college football. The first two seasons are available right now, and the third one - which follows Independence Community College in Kansas - is expected to be released this year.

5. Big Man Back on Campus

This new documentary from ESPN and AT&T AUDIENCE Network followed four former football stars from each of the four College Football Playoff teams this year - Alabama's Greg McElroy, Georgia's Garrison Hearst, Oklahoma's Jason White and Clemson's Tajh Boyd - as they returned to their alma maters. It debuted last week, but it can be found on demand with an AT&T or DIRECTV subscriber logins.

The 1951 NCAA football season finished with seven unbeaten major college teams, of which five were unbeaten and untied. Ultimately, the Tennessee Volunteers were voted the best team by the Associated Press, followed by the Michigan State Spartans

The 1958 NCAA University Division football season was notable in that it was the first to feature the two-point conversion. On January 13, 1958, the 11-man NCAA Rules Committee unanimously approved a resolution to allow teams to choose between kicking an extra point after a touchdown

Good news, ASU fans: Herm Edwards seems to have just learned the basic tenets of college recruiting .
When Arizona State hired Herm Edwards as their new head football coach in December, most people thought they were crazy. The 63-year-old hasn’t donned a headset in a decade, hadn’t coached in college football since the 1980s, and had become mostly known for intense yelling about football and life on ESPN. His introductory press conference didn’t do much to quell those concerns as he seemed to be unaware of his school’s mascot and blamed a lack of “huddling” as one of the major downfalls of modern society.
