Saturday was a day it was difficult not to be romantic about college football. Or maybe to hate it, depending on the team you follow.
Rife with so many close calls by teams that weren’t expected to struggle and even some flat-out upsets, Week 12 delivered in a big way. Ohio State and Michigan were in trouble late. Georgia had a ho-hum win. TCU needed a late field goal, like Michigan, while USC won its shootout with UCLA. Tennessee and North Carolina improbably lost.
Yes, it was everything you love about the sport, assuming your team won.
