Clemson ready to embrace expectations with return to playoff

Nearly two months removed from being rudely dispatched from the semifinals of the College Football Playoffs, Clemson has turned the page on last season.

Who’ll be the first non-Nike team to ever make the Playoff?

Nevada dental professionals call the College Football Playoff a ‘cartel’ and declare UCF the national champion for 2017

Nick Saban had one of his ‘worst’ Alabama teams and still won it all. The rest of college football might be screwed.

Alabama at its relatively weakest is better than all but a few at their best. College football didn’t have a standout team for most of the 2017 season. One didn’t really emerge until the second half of the Playoff National Championship, when the sport reverted to its default state: Alabama winning the title. Before that, no one dominated.

What if UCF had made the College Football Playoff?

Could the Knights have outscored Clemson? If so, could they have slowed down Georgia’s running game? Alabama is your 2017 Playoff champion, but as the No. 4 seed, it’s also the team that would have been left out had another team earned a nod. Show More Summary

Meet college football’s Team of 2017 for all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

These are sort of like state championships. College football doesn’t have state championships. That’s a pity for America’s most regional sport, even though plenty of rivalry games have a state-title feel. Absent a state playoff system like in high school sports, it’s usually impossible to crown state champs in the college game. Show More Summary
