The 2020 college football season is entering the home stretch.

Week 13 of the 2020 regular season was an eventful one, with several notable games taking place. Notre Dame, Alabama and Clemson were arguably the biggest winners of the weekend, as they kept their College Football Playoff hopes very much alive.

The Fighting Irish secured one of the biggest wins of the weekend, taking down North Carolina. Notre Dame remained undefeated on the season.

Alabama, meanwhile, crushed Auburn in the Iron Bowl. The Crimson Tide, led by quarterback Mac Jones, looked like the best team in America.
