The first weekend in December is here -- just like that. The college football season always flies by faster than you may think, but the staggered start to the season in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic makes it feel as though it has barely started. But with conference championship races winding down, there are still plenty of important games out there -- plus one that wasn't even on the schedule until recently. That, of course, is No. 13 BYU's quick road game at No. 18 Coastal Carolina. This is a big win for college football fans everywhere. Yes, a win would help BYU's case for a big bowl game, but it's also possible to simply enjoy good football when it comes around unexpectedly. The Cougars and Chanticleers are having breakout seasons.That's not all, either. Five top-10 teams will be on the road and some of them can lock up divisions if they haven't already. With the sport limping to the finish line, let's cherish whatever games we can get at this point. Let's help you navigate through a great weekend of college football with a handy viewer's guide. <br /><br /><br />No. 1 Alabama at LSU-- 8 p.m., CBS and CBSSports.com: The SEC on CBS hits you with a double-header on Saturday. This game was supposed to have been played in November, but was postponed due to COVID-19. Normally, this is a monster matchup. Not this year. Alabama's offense is lights-out and the defense has been making a lot of strides. LSU is a mess and the Tide should wrap up their regular season with a comfortable win -- with coach Nick Saban back on the sideline.Washington State at No. 20 USC -- Sunday, 7:30 p.m., FS1 and fuboTV (Try for free): Oh yeah, there's Sunday night college football. As if #Pac12AfterDark couldn't get any weirder. The game was moved to allow USC players to return from COVID-19 isolation.

This team is rarely boring.<br /><br /><br />There is no doubt the ACC's decision removes resistance for both the Fighting Irish and Tigers to meet in the ACC Championship Game and for the conference to potentially get two teams in the CFP.With the move, Notre Dame (9-0) clinched a spot in the ACC title game by sitting on the couch. Its Dec. 12 game against Wake Forest was eliminated. It ends the season Saturday against Syracuse. Clemson (8-1) ends the regular season having to win as a 22-point favorite at Virginia Tech this weekend to clinch a spot in Charlotte.That means both schools will head into the ACC title having played nine of their originally rescheduled 10 conference games. That means those ACC teams will have one less game for which it needs to worry about COVID-19.Sankey said the SEC, which is the only conference in CFP history to receive multiple bids in the same playoffs, has no such plan to streamline the paths of No. 1 Alabama and No. 6 Florida.&quot;We committed to playing a 10-game schedule, which is certainly unique to see some other decisions this week,&quot; said Sankey, obviously referring to the ACC &quot;where they indicated one direction and they changed at the last minute.&quot;<br /><br /><br />&quot;I think it's a pretty significant difference,&quot; Alabama coach Nick Saban said. &quot;Everybody's felt from the beginning when you get quarantined and you may not even get sick that 14 days was a pretty long time to get quarantined. But we've always respected the science.&quot;While he wouldn't commit to advocating change, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey told CBS Sports &quot;there was potential there for adaptation&quot; of the CDC's amended guidelines.&quot;I would expect a high level of interest in first understanding the new policy … and then working to see how that might be applied in the college athletic setting and likely across college campuses,&quot; Sankey added.<br /><br /><br />Old Town High School on Wednesday announced that it is delaying its team tryouts/practices by one week, to Dec. 21. Athletic administrator Jeremy Bousquet cited the rise in COVID-19 cases, holiday travel and the overall health of students, staff and members of the community in making the decision.Old Town athletes will be able to begin receiving virtual coaching and guidance on Dec. 7.“We also are in active review of what’s going on in different states with school sports,” Lambrew said. “We’ll be talking with different school officials to see what they’re thinking of planning with regard to school sports.”<br />

The Bills are an interesting case study for teams in a rebuild. The classic NFL structure has a team hiring a GM first, then the GM (in conjunction with ownership and maybe a club president) hires the coach. But that structure over the last decade has had some notable, and successful, exceptions. Kansas City (Andy Reid), Seattle (Pete Carroll) and San Francisco (Kyle Shanahan) hired the coach first, and the coach helped find the GM. Buffalo did the same. Four months after giving McDermott a five-year deal to coach the team, owners Terry and Kim Pegula gave Beane a five-year deal to be the general manager.Talking to Beane on Saturday night, I found it interesting that he brought one very specific point in his interview with the Pegulas. It’s something they wanted to hear, and needed to hear, from a bright and respected young (40 years old) personnel man on the cusp of getting a GM job somewhere.


1. Andy Reid. Kansas City is 22-1 since mid-November 2019, following the 32-29 survival test at the Superdome against the Saints on Sunday. With Atlanta and the Chargers left at home, the Chiefs could be on a 24-1 run, with the AFC’s lone bye, heading into divisional play on the weekend of Jan. 16-17. Funny that they’ve won six straight by less than a touchdown, but I don’t put much stock into “the Chiefs are slipping;” four of those have come on the road against playoff contenders. I asked Reid why his team never had that Super Bowl slump that so many champions get lulled into the season after. “I know it’s a cliché,” Reid said from his office in the ‘Dome. “But our guys like each other. We have good leaders. They’re resilient.”


11. Baker Mayfield. This is the player GM John Dorsey swore he was getting with the first pick in the 2018 draft—the guy who goes on a hot streak in big moments of the season (last four games in the 10-4 Browns’ playoff drive: 10 touchdowns, one interception), the guy who can hide even little mistakes with excellent plays.

Andy Lee, punter, Arizona. Fourth quarter, 14:56 left, fourth-and-two, Arizona 33-yard line. Cards 26, Eagles 26. Lee takes the punt snap and throws it to the right, to a linebacker, Ezekiel Turner, who runs for 26 yards and a first down. The Cards didn’t convert it into points, but the guts of the call and the coolness of the 38-year-old Lee deserve recognition. Good day punting too.

Antonio! I love the way you write! It’s so Italian!
