COLLEGE FOOTBALL: OCT 05 Iowa at Michigan

Good morning New York Giants fans!

Happy Saturday and welcome to Week 11 of the 2021 college football season. The hunt for the College Football Playoffs and Bowl Season is really starting to heat up. Teams around the country are trying to make one last push and state their case to the selection committee.

In particular, we’ll be watching to see if (currently) undefeated teams like the Oklahoma Sooners and Cincinnati Bearcats will be able to claw their way around a 1-loss Alabama team. Of course, we’re also starting get into the season-ending stretch of big games, and we have solid viewing options with future NFL players on the field in each of the time slots.

Use this as your open thread to discuss all of today’s games.
