Still Waiting on CFP News
The CFP Management Committee Meetings are expected to wrap up today in Chicago. They’ve been pretty tight-lipped the whole time, so we await any news on that front.

Will have more for you all once the CFP meetings wrap up midday tomorrow. I am curious to hear from the seven commissioners who weren’t part of the working group after two days discussing the 12-team proposal.
Throwback Classic: The 2011 BC Game
This week’s edition of Andrew Gluchov’s Throwback Classics sends us back ten years to the Red Bandana Game, when UCF celebrated the memory of former Boston College player Welles Crowther, who died on 9/11. It’s a great story to revisit, in addition to the fact that UCF blew out the Eagles 30-3.
This year UCF plays another BC, Bethune-Cookman, on the 20th anniversary of the attacks.
