The Big Bowl Games Are Coming, but Several Super-Stars Have Already Qualified For The All-American All-Bowl Team. As of Saturday Night, there are several Very Impressive Bowl Game Performances.

In an Unbelievable Twist of Fate, The Big Ten and Pac-12 Champions would usually play in The Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, but since The Rose Bowl is in The College Football Playoff Semi-Final System, these Two Teams Played their Game, in Texas, in The Cotton Bowl.

Ohio State Completely Dominated the Game with a 24-7 Victory as both of their All-American Defensive Ends with a Multitude of Sacks as Sam Hubbard (#6) Recorded 2 1/2 Sacks; while Nick Bose Recorded 2 Sacks. On Offense, The Buckeyes Three All-American Offensive Lineman of OC Billy Price, OG Michael Jordan, and OT Jamarco Jones, also Completely Dominated the Southern Cal Defense.

There is something Very Special about The TCU Horned Frogs and Their Big Comeback Victories in The Alamo Bowl Game. Never count out The Frogs.

In 2015, The Frogs Stormed back from being down 31-0 to win The Alamo Bowl Game. They did it again Thursday night, rallying from 21-3 deficient to beat The #15 Stanford Cardinals by a 39-37 Comeback Victory behind Super-Star Quarterback, Kenny Hill, who had another Incredible Game.

Hill (#7) Completed 27 of 40 Passes for 314-Yards and Two Touchdowns, Rushed 9 Times for 60-Yards and another Touchdown; plus he Caught One Pass for 27-Yards and another Incredible Touchdown, giving him 401-Yards of Total Offensive Yards and Four Touchdowns. 

Hill landed the Biggest Plays of the Game, but he also had help from Two other Super-Stars in Senior Desmond White and True Freshman Jalen Reagor. Hill Scored The First Horned Frog Touchdown on a 6-Yard Scramble, at the End of the Second Quarter, giving Stanford a 21-10 Lead at Halftime.

Then, his Incredible 27-Yard “Throw-Back” Touchdown Pass, down the Left Sideline, from Wide Receiver Desmon White to make it 27-16 in the Third Quarter, but Hill “Returned The Favor” as he Hit White on an 11-Yard Touchdown to make it 28-23. Stanford then kicked a Field Goal to to Increase their lead to 31-23.

Hill “Put An Unbelievable Charge” into The TCU Fans in the Fourth Quarter with the “Play of The Game” as he Found True Freshman Jalen Reagor, down the Right Sideline with an Incredible 93-Yard Touchdown Pass to Bring The Stanford Lead to 31-29 and Bring The Predominantly Horned Frog Fans in The Alamodome to Attention.

After this Incredible Play, Desmond White Struck-Again as he Returned a Punt 76-Yards for a Touchdown to give The Frogs their First Lead at 36-31, but Stanford Scored again to give the another Go-Ahead Lead at 37-36.

Then Hill led The Frogs down the Field and gave Cole Bunce a Chance to Kick the Winning 33-Yard Field Goal with just over 3 minutes left after Stanford had retaken the lead and With an Apparent Victory.

It was the second time this season that Hill had a Rushing Touchdown, Passing Touchdown, and Receiving Touchdown, in the Same Game, providing a Memorable Finale to his Great College Career. Hill began his career at Texas A&M, where he succeeded Heisman Trophy Winner Johnny Manziel in 2014, but Transferred to TCU after a Tough First Season with The Aggies.

Although, he was from the Area, Iowa All-Purpose Back and Super-Star Akrum Wadley (#25) had never been to Yankee Stadium, even though he grew up about 20-Miles across the river in New Jersey, but on his first visit, he seemed to bring out the whole town of Newark to cheer him and The HawkeyesWadley gave away 40 or more Game Tickets, and he certainly did not disappoint any of his his hometown fans who were Freezing inside Yankee Stadium to Watch him play.

In this Frigid Pinstripe Bowl Game against Boston College, Wadley Rushed for 88-Yards and a Touchdown; Caught 2 Passes for 24-Yards; and Returned 5 Kickoffs for 171-Yards, giving him an Incredible 283-Yards of Total Offense in the 27-20 Victory. This Bowl Game Sensation was Awarded with The MVP Trophy and also helped Snap a Five-Game Bowl Losing Streak.

Boise State Committed two turnovers that were returned for Touchdowns in the final minute of the First Half, turning a 24-0 Rout in the making into a competitive 24-14 contest and allowing Oregon back into the game, but without any Special Speech from their Head Coach, the Broncos regrouped and responded.

Super Wide Receiver Cedric Wilson (#1) Caught 10 Passes for 221-Yards and a Touchdown; Freshman Free Safety Kekula Kaniho Returned an Interception 53-Yards for a Touchdown to go with his 3 Solo Tackles and a Sack; and All-American Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch led The Broncos Defense with 12 Tackles, including 10 Solo Tackles, 3 Tackles for a Loss, and 1 1/2 Sacks as #25 Boise State beat Oregon 38-28 in the Las Vegas Bowl.

1. Clemson (12-1) – For the Third Consecutive Year, Clemson has made the College Football Playoff. It is the Second Time The Tigers have been the #1 Overall Seed, as they also claimed the top spot in 2015. A Decisive 38-3 ACC Championship Victory over Miami “Sealed the Deal” for Clemson, which only has one Loss on its Record, a 27-24 Road Loss to Syracuse in a Game in which Clemson Quarterback Kelly Bryant (#2 on the Left) was Injured.

Bryant has been Outstanding in the six games since the Syracuse loss, completing 125-of-186 passes (67 percent) for 1,303 yards, nine touchdowns and just two interceptions. Clemson entered selection day with eight wins over teams with a .500 or better record, including victories over Auburn and Miami.

2. Oklahoma (12-1) – The Sooners have not been ranked worse than #5 since the selection committee unveiled their initial 2017 Rankings in Week 10 and with Heisman Trophy Winner, Baker Mayfield, they have Some Very Impressive Wins, including Two Wins over TCU and One in Fort Worth; Ohio State in Columbus; Oklahoma State; and West Virginia.

Baker Mayfield is The Hottest Quarterback in the Country, but The Georgia Pass Defense will be The Best Pass Defense that he has faced all year. The Bulldogs are Ranked Second in The Country Against the Pass, allowing 158.3-Yards Per Game, with only Four Teams able to Complete better than a 60-Per Cent Pass Completion.

3. Georgia (12-1) The Georgia Bulldogs made the jump from #6 to #2 after a Great  Victory over Auburn in the SEC Championship Game. They avenged their only loss of the season, which was a 40-17 Loss  at Auburn. Georgia put itself in position to make The Playoffs after a Huge Victory on the road over Notre Dame in Week #2 and with the exception of their loss to The Auburn Tigers, The Georgia Bulldogs Rolled-Through The SEC Conference as they Won by an Average of 29 Points in their Seven Regular Season SEC Victories.

Inside Linebacker Roquan Smith (6-1, 225, 4.54) was The Anchor of The Georgia Defense and was Selected as The SEC Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press and also The Coaches. Smith has sometime been Labeled as being “Undersized” but tell that to Ball-Carriers who have met him in a Game this Season. Smith has been a “Wrecking-Ball” at the second level for The Bulldogs, leading the team with 45 tackles.

Smith has showed off a well-rounded skill set, making plays all over the field with an impressive combination of Athleticism and Physicality!

The Georgia Bulldogs are the Very First Non-Alabama SEC Team to make the College Football Playoff.

4. Alabama (11-1) – There was Absolutely No Way the Playoff Selection Committee could “Leave-Out” The One-Loss Alabama Crimson Tide. Before they loss at Auburn, The Crimson Tide had been Ranked #1 or #2 in Every Single 2017 Playoff Ranking. The Auburn Tigers were The Hottest Team in the Country in November, taking down two #1 Teams at home, so a 26-14 loss to Auburn certainly isn’t the worst loss among the teams in the playoff field.

After Ohio State beat Wisconsin in The Big-10 Conference Championship Game, the Biggest Question was whether the Committee would Value Better Wins and a Conference Championship for Ohio State or Alabama with fewer losses and perhaps a more Convincing Eyeball Test as being a Better Team than Ohio State with Two Losses.

Despite not playing in the SEC Championship and a relative lack of perceived quality wins, Alabama beat Florida State when The Seminoles were ranked #3 in the AP Top 25 Poll and In addition, had wins over LSU and Mississippi State.

It took an 11th Hour Decision by the Selection Committee to keep The Alabama Playoff Streak Alive, as The Crimson Tide made the Playoffs for the Fourth Consecutive Year. This is their lowest final ranking in the playoff era, after entering the playoff ranked No. 1 in 2014 and 2016, and No. 2 in 2015.

About maxemfingerrecruiting

My mission and goal is to search for that hidden high school football talent that has not been found yet. I then evaluate him and try to help him to get some publicity. In 2003, 2004, 2005. and 2006, I hosted my Annual 7on7 National Championship. My goal was to get great athletes to one area where I could evaluate them and then help them with college coaches. The only drawback was that college coaches wanted to see the hidden gems in a game-type highlight film and so the college coaches suggested to me that I host a real All-American Bowl Game so that they could view these talented players in a highlight film, playing against other talented players. It's noted that the NCAA doesn't allow the college coaches to attend All-American Games or practices and so the Game Film is a great tool for the college coaches. In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game. In nine games in nine years, my wife and I have helped 549 HS football players to get a scholarship that came to our first Bowl Game practice without a single scholarship offer. This also does not count over 1,000 players who we have helped that did not play in our game, including over 100 players in the 2010 Recruiting Season. My Super Elite Top Gun Camp idealogy, is of course, to get as many Top Football Players to a Top Gun Camp so that all of my coaches and I can evaluate them, rate them, rank them, and promote them. There will always be "Diamonds in the Rough" to be found. My First Annual Max Emfinger's Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July of 2010. The Camp was amazing and loaded with unknown and known talent. Many of them were invited to play in our 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic. In 2007, in my 3rd Annual All-American Bowl Game, a player by the name of Kareem Jackson came to our first Monday practice, without a single scholarship offer. Jackson decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
