IAN BOYD is a history major graduate from the University of Texas, now based in southeast Michigan, who loves studying the trends and stories of college football. You can also find his work at two SB Nation blogs, Football Study Hall and Inside Texas.
The preliminaries are over, and now it's time for the main events of bowl season. The headliner: the College Football Playoff, where Baker Mayfield and Oklahoma face Georgia in the Rose Bowl, while Alabama faces Clemson in the Sugar Bowl.
We could hardly ask for more from Championship Week, with every team needing at least a win to cement a playoff berth. The Georgia Bulldogs' pursuit of Jarrett Stidham and the Auburn Tigers in the SEC title game could be the biggest of them all.
In a quiet week of college football across the country, the most intriguing game might be a battle of NFL quarterback prospects when Josh Rosen and the UCLA Bruins battle Sam Darnold and the USC Trojans.

It's a huge weekend in college football, as Oklahoma faces TCU in a potential conference championship game preview; Miami hosts Notre dame in a virtual elimination game; and contenders Alabama, Georgia, and Washington all face big tests on the road.
