All College Football Playoff semifinal games will be played on Saturdays or holidays after the event saw ratings plummet on New Years Eve last season.The dates have been changed for the semifinal games in the 2018, 2019, 2024 and 2025 seasons.CFP executive director Bill Hancock said the drop in viewership combined with what he called a simple and elegant alternative was enough to sway the management committee to change the dates.Once we settled on this as the best possible alternative, then the rest of the dominoes fell, he said.Hancock said he had heard from college football fans across the country, fans he sees in church and at the grocery store.I did hear from several who said, Bill, stay with it, he said. But most said, It just doesnt work for me.Following the national championship game, Hancock said the CFP realized it needed to review the data and be deliberate and open to change.Over the next few months, we did that, he said. We just took our time, looked at the data and realized that we had tried to do something special on New Years Eve, but we could do better. Im so happy because this is so great for the fans.The semifinals will remain on one weekday New Years Eve -- Friday, Dec. 31, 2021 -- which will be the federally observed New Years holiday.The Orange, Rose and Sugar Bowls will host semifinal games through at least the 2024 season. The CFP will determine the remaining semifinal sites for the 2021 season and thereafter some time in 2018.This seasons semifinals will be played on Dec. 31, a Saturday.Hancock was asked if the CFP had purposely avoided New Years Day in seasons other than when Rose/Sugar hosted.We wanted to honor the traditions of the game, including the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl, he said.He also said the CFP considered having the semifinals on different days.We considered several options, one of which was having the semifinals on different days, but we concluded that wouldnt be fair because one team would have an additional day to prepare, he said.

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Knocked unconscious in last weeks game, Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. wasnt medically cleared to play against Minnesota until hours before the Saturday night.Everything was going great until the third quarter when he injured his left ankle on a sneak and needed help to the sideline. When the offense returned to the field early in the fourth, Memorial Stadium roared at the sight of Armstrong, and he went on to lead the No. 19 Cornhuskers 91 yards to the tiebreaking touchdown in a 24-17 victory.Armstrong scored the winner himself, tweaked his hamstring as he crossed the goal line and was carried to the bench by offensive linemen Tanner Farmer and Jerald Foster like a conquering hero.Tommy is the toughest dude Ive been around, said safety Kieron Williams, who finished off the Gophers with an interception with 1:29 left. A lot of quarterbacks wouldnt have played a snap. People can say what they want about him. I wouldnt want to go to war with any other quarterback.The Huskers (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) still need to win out and have Wisconsin lose once in order to reach the conference championship game. But the night was a perfect re-set for a team that had lost two straight, including that humiliating 62-3 beat-down at Ohio State last week.Armstrong, who spent the week going through the concussion protocol, played one of his best games in weeks and outperformed Minnesotas Mitch Leidner. Armstrong was 19 for 27 for 217 yards with two touchdowns, and he ran nine times for 61 yards. His last run was a 13-yarder to break a 17-17 tie with 7:17 left.Before starting the winning drive, offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf and coach Mike Riley asked Armstrong if there were certain types of plays he didnt want called because of his health.I had to suck it up and know I would be OK, Armstrong said. I told them to open up the playbook. If we needed quarterback runs, I was there to runn.dddddddddddd If we needed to throw outside the pocket, I could do that, too.Riley said Armstrongs competitiveness showed through against the Gophers (7-3, 4-3).He doesnt ever like to come out of the game. He always thinks hes going to make the next play, Riley said.Nebraska allowed a season-low 265 total yards, with Aaron Williams and Josh Banderas making 11 tackles apiece.The Huskers trailed at halftime for a fourth straight game. Newby tied it 17-all in the third quarter, taking a screen pass from Armstrong 31 yards to the end zone.You go the road and you have a chance, said Gophers coach Tracy Claeys, whose team had its four-game winning streak end. But we didnt play well enough in the second half to win the ball game; Nebraska played better than we did.THE TAKEAWAYMinnesota: The Gophers lost control of their destiny in the Big Ten West. They might regret some of their play-calling against the Huskers. Other than a few occasions Rodney Smith bounced to the outside for good runs, it was mostly futile for them to try to run up the middle.Nebraska: If anyone doubted Armstrongs toughness, he proved his mettle. He also showed he is the most important player on this team. If he goes down, the Huskers are in deep trouble.POLL IMPLICATIONSWith Virginia Tech and North Carolina losing, Nebraska could move up a spot or two.SHUTDOWN DEFENSEMinnesota out-yarded the Huskers 172-137 in the first half but managed only 93 yards and no points the rest of the way.We were a little out of whack and not playing our ball, Banderas said. Older guys took charge and knew what we had to do.UP NEXTMinnesota hosts Northwestern, which shut out the Gophers 27-0 last year.Nebraska hosts Maryland in the first meeting of the teams.---More AP college football at http://collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
