NCAA FOOTBALL | Rick Neuheisel Previews Upcoming Bowl Games

12/13/2017 02:40 PM

Former Colorado, Washington and UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel joined Sports Night on Wednesday.

While on the show, Spectrum News’ Andrew Chernoff asked Neuheisel about a variety of college football topics, including UofL quarterback Lamar Jackson. Chernoff’s first question was whether or not Neuheisel thought that Jackson should have finished third in this past weekend’s Heisman vote:

Neuheisel also talked about the job UK football head coach Mark Stoops is doing, as the Wildcats are getting ready to play in their second consecutive bowl game later this month:

Many UofL and UK fans will also be paying close attention to the 2017-2018 College Football Playoff. Neuheisel shared his thoughts on that and which team he thinks will hoist the trophy by the end of the CFB Playoff:

Neuheisel is hosting the upcoming American Football Coaches Awards on Jan. 9 and one of you may even “win a trip to meet the coaches and make a cameo on the broadcast.” Be sure to watch the end of Chernoff’s full interview with Neuheisel for the details:
