Greg DePalma spends time with Chris Dufresne, national writer for TMG Sports, to look at top matchups and players to watch as the 40-game college bowl season launches with five games Saturday. The Las Vegas Bowl highlights the opening act, as Oregon makes its debut under coach Mario Cristobal, and they discuss whether UCF can finish unbeaten against Peach Bowl foe Auburn.
Greg DePalma recaps the action from college football’s Championship Weekend and offers thoughts on the College Football Playoff quartet, with Alabama getting the nod over Big Ten champion Ohio State for the fourth slot. The spotlight also falls on the coaching carousel, as Jimbo Fisher heads to Aggieland and Scott Frost goes home to rescue Nebraska.
Greg DePalma is joined by Brian Moss, publisher of TigerSportsReport.com, for an in-depth look at Memphis ahead of the Tigers’ clash against UCF for the American Athletic Conference championship. Regardless of the outcome, the Tigers will end their season in a bowl game for a school-best fourth consecutive season.
Greg DePalma chats with Marc Daniels, longtime radio voice of UCF athletics, about the Knights’ quick ascent since coach Scott Frost arrived ahead of the 2016 season. UCF has won 13 of 20 games under the ex-Nebraska QB, including a 7-0 mark now that puts the Knights in the mix for a New Year’s Six bowl. Can they keep Frost from being lured away by Florida or Nebraska?
