In early September, Notre Dame linebacker and Heisman Trophy candidate Manti Te’o—just days after learning of the death of his girlfriend—led the Fighting Irish to an emotional upset of then-#10 Michigan State. However, in one of the most bizarre twists we’ve seen in college football, it now appears that the whole story about a dying girlfriend was a hoax.
It was another exciting week in college football, with four of this last week’s bowl games being decided in the final minute or overtime. Here are all the highlights from the last week in college football.
The first week of bowl games is in the books and, while we all know these games are just appetizers for the big games to come, the BCS games will be hard-pressed to match some of the excitement we’ve already seen. Three of the four games this week were decided in the fourth quarter and featured a lot of stellar individual efforts.
Here are all the highlights from the first games of the 2012 bowl season.
Notre Dame punched its ticket into the national title game. And now the Fighting Irish must wait one more week to find out who their opponent will be. With Alabama and Georgia both recording big wins, it sets up a monster showdown in next week’s SEC title game, with the winner advancing to the BCS national championship.

Never was that more true than this week when the top two teams in the country both went down to defeat. The door is now wide open for Notre Dame and the SEC champion to meet in the national championship game. But if the last two weeks have taught us anything, the top of the polls can be a very scary place to be.
Here are all the highlights from this week in the Top 25. Let chaos reign.
Champions from non-automatic-qualifier conferences will now have the chance to earn a spot in one of six BCS bowl games, according to a new agreement announced Monday. Under the terms of the deal, the highest-ranked champion from the "Group of Five" non-automatic conferences (Big East, Conference USA, MAC, Mountain West and Sun Belt) will be guaranteed a spot in a BCS bowl game.
We’re getting down to crunch time in the college football season. Several top teams are trying to wrap up their respective divisions or keep their title hopes alive while others are just struggling to hold on to bowl eligibility. There are several interesting games this week: only three matchups between ranked teams, but 11 ranked teams have tough road trips.
