Welcome to a new episode of Fans First Football Network’s I-80 Football Show. On this show, we travel down I-80 to talk all things Big Ten Football. This is the only Big Ten Podcast that’ll cover all 18 teams. After every week of action, we will catch you up on all the conference’s games and look ahead at the matchups, storylines, and players you should be paying attention to for the next week. My name is Jordan Williams, and I am joined by my co-host Dante Morgan.

In this episode, we break down the national semi-final games as Michigan beat Alabama in overtime and Washington outlasted Texas to set up a game against future Big Ten conference members. Michigan has faced a team similar to Washington in Ohio State and has been able to beat them for the past three years, does that give them a leg up in this game? Washington has passed every test this season behind a major season from Michael Penix Jr. and Rome Odunze. We’re in for an instant classic.

In other news, is this Jim Harbaugh’s final season at Michigan? He has flirted with the NFL for the past few seasons but with Michigan finally, in the National Championship game he has the Wolverines at the ceiling and there are most likely sanctions coming down this offseason. In their weekly pitstops, Dante laments that the Lakers are terrible again after winning the In-Season Tournament. Jordan believes the Bears “decision” around Justin Fields is easy. Keep him, trade the pick, and draft a stud wide receiver and offensive tackle to build around.
