By Jeff Faraudo | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: January 7, 2019 at 10:13 pm | UPDATED: January 7, 2019 at 10:13 pm SANTA CLARA — Was the greatest college football team in history crowned Monday night in our backyard? Clemson stated a convincing case with a 44-16 victory over Alabama in a one-sided battle of 14-0 teams in the College Football Playoff championship game at Levi’s Stadium. Of course, this is an argument with no definitive answer. But the Tigers became the first major-college team to complete a season 15-0 in 121 years, since Penn did it in 1897.

It takes a nosebleed seat. And yet, college football’s marquee event — the national championship game — will be played here Monday night, making the Bay Area the first West Coast site for one of the crown jewels of American sports. What in the name of Pop Warner was the College Football Playoff committee thinking? It turns out long-established relationships, the 49ers’ move to Santa Clara and San Jose’s improving downtown corridor trumped the Bay Area’s moderate interest in the college football teams at Cal, Stanford and San Jose State. Even as lackluster ticket sales and a soggy weather forecast are generating criticism that the choice was unwise, college football’s … [Read more...] about How college football’s big event ended up in the Bay Area
By Jim Harrington | [email protected] | Bay Area News GroupDecember 13, 2018 at 1:07 pm Imagine Dragons will perform a special halftime concert for the College Football Playoff National Championship game on Jan. 7 in the Bay Area. The concert will not, however, be held at the same site as the game. When the last two college football teams standing take their halftime break at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Imagine Dragons will start cranking out the tunes at a site on Treasure Island. Yes, that Treasure Island. The one in the middle of the San Francisco Bay Area. Oh, by the way, it’s free to attend this show with the No. 1 most streamed group of 2018. But that doesn’t mean that everyone just count on going – not yet, anyway. Fans will require special passes in order to access the site. Details on how to “secure those passes will be shared closer to the event,” according to an press release from ESPN. Most people, of course, … [Read more...] about Huge rock act performing free halftime show for college football championship in Bay Area
