The playoffs are over and, although Sunday morning did see some movement in the bowl selection, it seems that the shuffle of head coaches is not over just yet.

Two teams remain unbeaten with a 13-0 season: Alabama and Western Michigan.

This week’s game of the week is played Dec 10 at Baltimore, Md.: “the Army vs. Navy Game.” It’s the Army Black Knights (6-5) vs. Navy Midshipmen (9-3): the Knights keep trying hard but they do not have the artillery nor the tanks to sink the Mighty Midshipmen. Navy by 10.
