Because Rivalry Week in college football ruined it for me.
It didn't ruin it in a bad way. It actually was a good thing. This weekend was the best weekend of college football that I've ever seen in my life. So, after experiencing game-after-game of heated, long-standing, NCAA Football rivalries going down to the wire, I could only come down off of that high when NFL Sunday arrived. The feeling of elation that I felt for some NCAA teams and depression that I felt for others could not be matched by the NFL.
Look at these scores from the games that I watched:
Duke over North Carolina, 27-25
* Mississippi State over Mississippi, 17-10, Overtime
Oregon over Oregon State, 36-35
Georgia over Georgia, 41-34, Double Overtime
* Ohio State over Michigan, 42-41
* Auburn over Alabama, 34-28
(*-came down to the last play of the game)
If you have a chance to catch the ending of any of these games, then treat yourself! Even if you only watch the last five minutes of each one, then that will be enough to satisfy you. And if you watch the 4th quarter of the Alabama / Auburn game, then you may see the most exciting 4th quarter in the history of football (pro or college).
Last weekend was the last full schedule of college football games for the season and it did not disappoint!
