With the margins growing increasingly slim between successes and failures in both college football and in everyday life, let's make a game show out of college football numbers and see what happens when you pit things such as:

• The all-purpose yardage of Stanford's Christian McCaffrey against a tough schedule with a rebuilt offense vs the passing and rushing yardage of Syracuse QB Eric Dungey under new head coach Dino Babers

• The number of miles of offense allowed by the (has to be better) 2016 Texas Tech defense vs Oregon's 2016 loss total with their third starting QB in as many years

• Fumbles from LSU star RB Leonard Fournette vs fumbles by LSU's administrators in handling Les Miles's future for yet another season

• Iowa's win total navigating the Big Ten in 2016 vs the total number of Taylor Swift singles you can name when put on the spot

...and a good amount more!
