A few minutes before kickoff, the video board played season highlights, then another video with clips from UCF’s 34-27 win over Auburn in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl to cap a 13-0 season.

Another big weekend of college football spring games is in the books, and many of college football’s best programs took the field on Saturday afternoon.

Defending national champion Alabama, SEC champion Georgia, a potentially threatening Notre Dame squad and Scott Frost’s new-look Nebraska were just a few of the big games on the docket. By 

Brandon Wimbush entered the 2017 season as Notre Dame’s starter, but ceded control of the job over what can fairly be described as a rough junior season. He connected on just 49.5 percent of his throws for 6.8 yards per attempt on the year — numbers that ranked 92nd and 79th nationally, respectively — and was even worse down the stretch. He hit just 14-of-36 throws for for 298 yards with two touchdowns and two picks over the Irish’s final two games, a loss to Stanford and a Citrus Bowl win over LSU. By Zach Barnett

For 16 months now, Tom Herman has waited for one of his quarterbacks to take the bull by the horns. And for 16 months, the bull still hops freely around the ring. Junior Shane Buechele and sophomore Sam Ehlinger quarterback opposite teams in Saturday night’s Orange-White game, and exited the spring the same way they began it: to be the guy who quarterbacks the Orange and White on Sept. 1 at Maryland. Ehlinger was 13-of-22 for 151 yards while Buechele hit 12-of-21 throws for 130 yards and a score; Ehlinger’s White team won the game, 23-13. By Zach Barnett

Ricardo Benitez agreed to continue his football career at Baylor, which is remarkable since he never should have had a career in the first place. Benitez was born with a condition called Femur Hypoplasia Bilateral, which means he does not have femurs in his legs. By Zach Barnett
