What an exciting finish last night! Is everyone ready for the thousand headlines about how Jabrill Peppers would have won the game for Michigan? Hope you are because that started before the game even began.

Four games are on tap today including both playoff semifinal games. Games start early today, so good for you if you’re on the west coast and can watch football from 8:00am on!

Citrus Bowl

LSU Tigers vs Louisville Cardinal (+3.5) || 11:00am ET || ABC

A vaunted SEC defense vs. the Heisman winner in Lamar Jackson. Should be fun, right?

Taxslayer Bowl

Kentucky Wildcats vs Georgia Tech Yellowjackets (-3.5) || 11:00am ET || ESPN

I won’t even pretend to know anything other than we’re going to see the triple option here.

CFP Semifinal - Peach Bowl

#4 Washington Huskies vs #1 Alabama Crimson Tide (-14) || 3:30pm ET || ESPN

Is Alabama going to double up the predicted spread? I feel like that’s a better question than are they going to cover.

CFP Semifinal - Fiesta Bowl

#2 Clemson Tigers vs #3 Ohio State Buckeyes (-2) || 7:00pm ET || ESPN

GF3 wrote a preview for the game, here. I’m going to guess that this is a low scoring affair where the defenses dominate, a la the OSU/PSU game but hopefully PSU comes out on top.

That’s it! Normal rules apply: No illegal streams, no illicit photos/videos/gifs/etc, don’t be an asshat. Enjoy!
