While some argued that there shouldn’t be a game, a day after Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend and then committing suicide at Arrowhead stadium, Week 13 is going on as planned. In the spotlight: The Chicago Bears hosting the Seattle Seahawks, two major battles in the NFC East (Cowboys-Eagles, Giants-Redskins) and the Baltimore Ravens trying to clinch the AFC North vs the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Well, no surprises, and no actual change. Notre Dame are number one in the polls and the computers, meaning they rule the BCS standings and won’t be moved, regardless of the results of the conference championship games next week. Alabama or Georgia have somewhat of a semifinal on their hands heading into the SEC title game, with the rest of the fog mostly regarding BCS bowl slots. More
No real change at the top 25 of the AP Poll, as Notre Dame passed the biggest test of their weekend, a visit to USC, with another impressive defensive stand. The other two claimants to the BCS national championship game, Alabama and Georgia, had no problem beating their in-state nemesis on rivalry week. More
Rivalry week, week 13 of College Football. It comes down to a hobbled and disappointing USC Trojans team, the number one preseason pick, to try and stop the Notre Dame Fighting Irish from reaching the BCS Championship game. Alabama and Georgia are next in line, with a good chance of dueling for the second spot in the SEC title game, while Oregon and Florida wait (hoping to win) for a slip up. More
LSU should beat Georgia in the SEC championship game, which means, if we know the BCS, that we’ll have a All-SEC national championship game in January 2012 between the LSU Tigers (beating Arkansas) and Alabama, who beat Auburn rather easily in the Iron Bowl. More
There’s nothing new in 2011. College Football needs a playoff, as the whole BCS rankings and systems leave us with too many one-loss teams who deserve a shot at LSU, and Alabama, who already lost to them and won’t play for the SEC title, look like the most likely candidate. More
The best photos from week 13 in College Football, aka rivalry week, as Oregon and Auburn kept the top spots while the Aggies ruined it for Texas, Oklahoma (as underdogs!) complicated things with their win at Bedlam, Florida State fally beat Urban Meyer and Ohio State, as usual, didn’t go easy on Michigan.
