The BCS era is over in college football. It went out with a bang as Florida State and Auburn played a classic game in the final year of the BCS with the playoff system beginning next year.
The Heisman Trophy will be presented Saturday evening in New York City. Winston’s name should be at the top of the list as college football’s most impressive player from the start of the season through the championship games. Everything else after that is purely a guess.
Northern Illinois looks to become the second back-to-back BCS Buster in the history of the BCS, joining TCU. Fresno State, currently the top team in the BCS-busting Mountain West Conference, is looking to reach their first BCS bowl game. So, who has the best shot?

This weekend, college football will shift its attention to the ACC. Playing in the shadows of the SEC the last few years, the ACC will offer this week’s game of the week when Clemson hosts Florida State.
