What goes into the CFP Rankings?

The Athletic dives into the much-debated process for selecting teams for the playoff and other NY6 bowls. For 6 weeks, a group of people meet for 16 hours across 2 days to discuss who are the top teams in the country. The post also discusses 13 points about the process, including: anonymous voting, not attending championship weekend, a ban on sports gambling, and how they arrived at 13 members.

Who is Nevada’s biggest rival?

Between UNLV and Boise State, Murray thinks it’s BSU due to a higher number of close games, higher stakes and both programs following one another from conference to conference. He also discusses Carson Strong’s draft stock, the 2018 recruiting class, and other topics.

Rivalry Respect

Steve Addazio and Craig Bohl both want to win the boot in the Border War trophy, but Addazio has nothing but respect for Bohl and the program he has built up over the years. He has made the Cowboys a consistently good team. Addazio hopes to do the same with the Rams.
