First round of Tier 1 playoffs is of course eight District Championship games, each played in special location as treat for players and fans. Every District is having two Divisions, so these games is meeting of two Division winners to decide champion of District. 16 teams total are making to playoffs. All else is in university dormitory, watching on television.
Here is results of ROUND ONE of 2013 playoffs:
Location: East Rutherford, NJ
Final Score: Boston College 35, Penn State 29
Notes: Eagles is coming from maybe weakest Division/District in Tier 1, but is making impressive 9-0 vs. all other teams in District, including championship game. Is losing games only to tough UCF, Michigan, and Clemson. Nittany Lions is starting season 7-0, but is then losing three in row to Ohio State, Virginia, and Syracuse. Now season is over. Mediocre BC defense is next to face unbeaten, exploding Baylor offense in second round of playoffs.
Location: Nashville, TN
Final Score: Louisville 29, Virginia Tech 18
Notes: Is second time this season Cardinals is beating Hokies (also winning 34-19 in Week 10). Louisville is having #2 defense and is at one time Top Power team in country, until losing 45-17 in Week 8 to Alabama. But is winning all rest of games to finish regular season Top Power rank #3. Are you believing that Hokies was Top Power rank #2 early in season? Is having decent defense, but worst offense for any team in playoffs is making doom for Hokies. Cardinals is moving on and playing Michigan State in Round Two.
Location: Detroit, MI
Final Score: Michigan State 34, Ohio State 24
Notes: Spartans is one of biggest surprise teams of season. Is having #4 top defense and is losing only two games during regular season, but to curious weak opponents – Hoosiers of Indiana (38-18 loss in Week 3) and very bad Bobcats of Ohio (losing 18-16 in Week 5). But is now winning seven games in row. Buckeyes is starting season with high hopes and is having high-power offense to match, but is losing key rivalry games to Michigan (36-26 in Week 6) and final game of regular season, 44-38 to Cincinnati, who is maybe giving OSU bad hangover for title game. Spartans is now leaping Missouri in Top Power rank and is facing big challenge in Round 2 vs. Louisville Cardinals.
Location: Tampa, FL
Final Score: Florida State 36, Alabama 26
Notes: Many fans is saying this is best game of all playoffs. Is rematch of 2012 District 4 Championship, and also Seminoles is losing to Crimson Tide 30-24 in Week 5 for only loss of 2013 season. Is having #3 top offense and #1 top defense in Tier 1. Alabama is losing two games early in season, but is then conquering all to win Division and climb Top Power rankings. Is playing #3 top defense and ruining undefeated records for West Virginia, Florida State, and Louisville along way. In epic battle, it is Seminoles who are tasting 36-26 victory. Next game vs. Missouri is maybe not even so difficult as this one?
Location: Chicago, IL
Final Score: Missouri 37, Wisconsin 34
Notes: Badgers is looking for second consecutive District 5 title, but is losing 4 of final 6 games, including this game, which is rematch of Week 10 when Mizzou is also winning 20-15. Mizzou is losing opening day to Virginia, but is then winning nine in row and having strong defense until Week 11 close 30-27 defeat to Oklahoma State. Now is advancing to second round of playoffs vs. Florida State.
Location: Houston, TX
Final Score: Oklahoma State 29, Houston 25
Notes: Cowboys is at one time this season #1 Top Power team, and is only losing stupid one game in Week 2 to lowly Louisiana Tech. Here is why Commie Football is better system – one early, stupid loss is not meaning season is over! Is no matter, Oklahoma State is in playoffs playing now and is defeating Cougars of Houston for District 6 title. Is facing Oregon Ducks in next round. Cougars is maybe most incognito team in playoffs, having middle-of-road offense and defense, but winning weak Division. Is still keeping this game close, but not good enough to win.
Location: Glendale, AZ
Final Score: Baylor 40, Boise State 17
Notes: Baylor is remaining only undefeated team and is #1 Top Power rank in country. Also, Bears is now taking its top-scoring offense and top 10 defense in all Tier 1 to second round of playoffs as #1 seed, to face Eagles of Boston College from District 1. Is interesting fact, 2012 Commie Football champion Utah State is also coming from District 7. For Boise State, this is second blowout loss to Baylor this season (also 56-19 in Week 10). Season is finished for lowest-ranked team in playoffs.
Location: San Francisco, CA
Final Score: Oregon 27, UCLA 23
Notes: Ducks was hot preseason pick for Commie Football championship, but was losing in upset opening week to Gamecocks of South Carolina. Later, Ducks was climbing high to #2 Top Power rank, until Week 11 defeat by Boise State. Ducks is having second-best offense in Tier 1, but defense is maybe not top level. UCLA is surprising nation with #4 top offense, but is not enough to bring home District 8 title. Ducks is now flying to Round 2 vs. Oklahoma State.
WHAT IS NEXT?
For second round of playoffs, remaining teams are now being re-seeded, based on Top Power rank. Highest-seed team is playing lowest-seed team, and so forth. To make old people happy, seven remaining games are being played in traditional bowl game locations (from east to west: Orange (FL), Peach (GA), Sugar (LA), Cotton (TX), Fiesta (AZ), Rose (CA), and Aloha (HI)). Higher-seed team in matchup is choosing which location for each game.
Here is what second round matches are looking like:
- (1) Baylor (13-0, #1) vs. (8) Boston College (10-3, #11) – Cotton Bowl
- (2) Florida State (12-1, #2) vs. (7) Missouri (11-2, #7) – Orange Bowl
- (3) Louisville (12-1, #3) vs. (6) Michigan State (11-2, #6) – Peach Bowl
- (4) Oklahoma State (12-1, #4) vs. (5) Oregon (11-2, #5) – Sugar Bowl
This is leaving Fiesta, Rose, and Aloha as remaining game locations.
In next day or two, we will review first round of Tier 2 playoffs, which is set up in same fashion as Tier 1.
