From Tulane and UCLA insanity to a savage front door cover by Alabama, this weekend delivered all the things we love about college football. Together with Freddie Kitchens losing his mind on Sunday Night Football, gamblers endured plenty of zaniness.

Luckily Stuckey and Collin Wilson are here to sort it all out for us as they recap all the best action you may have missed (or wish you'd missed), as they respond to the best of their voicemail line. This week's crop didn't disappoint, especially after Collin's ill-fated UMass bet and Stuckey's dreadful Saturday start, which led to infuriation, confusion and at least two death threats.

The guys wrap up with a preview of the Monday Night Football game and "the worst starting quarterback in the NFL," featuring a matchup at least one of them is excited to bet.

Matthew Freedman and Chris Raybon break down both NFL Conference Championship matchups from both betting and DFS angles. Raybon believes the NFC Championship game will likely be decided by how Wade Phillips deals with Michael Thomas -- who absolutely torched Marcus Peters in their regular season matchup. The guys also debate Mark Ingram vs. CJ Anderson in DFS, and Freedman remarks on Anderson's Barry Bonds-like physical transformation this season. They go back-and-forth hypothesizing about the nearly-infinite number of ways Bill Belichick may game-plan for the Chiefs offense; but, they mutually agree that the Patriots aren't necessarily built to play from behind and must avoid a shootout at all costs.
