Sports fans have a lower threshold for the word “emergency.” While most people reserve the term for events like heart attacks, major world crises and running out of toilet paper, sports fans know that true emergencies are things like double overtime and last minute drives.

The University of Oregon athletic department is completely underwritten by UO alum and Nike president Phil Knight. It’s not like they’re hurting for money. They still came up with a novel approach to fundraising—allowing the general public to watch Ducks’ cheerleading tryouts for $5 apiece.
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.

We’re down to the home stretch of the regular season, with most teams having just two games remaining. There aren't many big games this week, with only two top 25 matchups and five ranked SEC schools dropping down to play FCS teams. But there is still some action this week that could shake up conference-title races. #1 Oregon faces a ranked team and #2 Kansas State hits the road against one of the nation’s top offenses. Hey, after last week, anything’s possible.
Here is what to watch for this week in the top 25:
It was another crazy weekend in college football with Alabama and Notre Dame needing last minute rallies to survive, Oregon and USC giving us a PAC-12 shootout for the ages and the Heisman frontrunner leaving with an injury.
Here are all the highlights from an exciting weekend in the Top 25.
Last week's showdowns knocked several teams from the ranks of the unbeaten and shook up the rankings. This week, we get two of the biggest games of the season, with Alabama-LSU and Oregon-USC setting the stage for conference- and national-championship runs.
But the excitement doesn't stop there. Here is what to watch for around the top 25:
It's always a sad moment when you realize that college football's regular season is more than halfway done, but it should still be a fun week with lots of exciting games on tap. Six of the top 10 teams in the country play ranked opponents, and 13 top 25 teams face challenges on the road.
