CFB Week 13: What Twitter Had To Say

It was a rivalry week to remember.

NCAA Football: Alabama at Auburn John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

The 2023 college football regular season has officially come to a close.

Feels weird to say, right? With the playoff expanding next season, this felt like the end of an era. Well, it was an era that went out with a bang — and rivalry week was no exception. From iconic game-winning moments to gut-wrenching defeats, the final week of the regular season had it all.

THE GAME BRINGS THE DRAMA

Ryan Day, what happened? A game with rivalry, Big Ten, playoff, and national championship implications on the line came down to the absolute wire. In the end, Michigan emerged victorious for the third season in a row and now has a date with Iowa in Indianapolis.

ALABAMA WINS ON THE MILROE MIRACLE

In one of the most improbable endings to a game you will ever see, Alabama (and the Iron Bowl) delivered on 4th and 31. Jalen Milroe’s miracle pass will go down alongside the Kick Six as one of the most iconic plays in this rivalry’s history, and the Crimson Tide’s 27-24 win kept its playoff hopes alive.

WASHINGTON STAYS ALIVE

Washington is once again beating the Pac-12 cannibalization allegations. On a field goal as time expired, the Huskies outlasted their rival Cougars and now have a rematch with Oregon in the Pac-12 title game. Michael Penix Jr. continues to make his case for the Heisman Trophy, and this 24-21 win over Washington State is just another feather in his cap.

NO TRAVIS, NO PROBLEM

Despite losing their Heisman candidate quarterback Jordan Travis, the Florida State Seminoles delivered an electric win in the Swamp. The Noles took down their rival Gators 24-15 and are still undefeated. Now, they are a win over Louisville in the ACC Championship away from a College Football Playoff berth.

FAREWELL, BIG TEN WEST

While many of you were likely enjoying family time or some Thanksgiving leftovers, dozens of us were watching the Big Ten West’s curtain call. This game had the lowest over/under in college football history, and the under still hit. This beautiful brand of football will now go without a home as the Big Ten West will dissolve during the offseason. Still, the memories of the punts, fumbles, and blocked kicks will still remain.
