Auburn might not have been able to pull off another miracle finish, but the Tigers helped Florida State into a worthy national champion following a 34-31 win by the Seminoles Monday.

The game was exciting, and didn't involve any crowd shots of any player's partners, which made it a really great game.

And, of course, it's not the end of football season as there's still plenty of NFL action left.

That's the storyline for the first episode of Sportsland, Oregon, recorded at Blitz Pearl in Northwest Portland Monday night.

Cast members Cliff Pfenning and Marlon Thomas talk up the thriling nature of the college title game and where Oregon might be as the 2014 season unofficially began with FSU breaking the seven-year run of titles by the SEC.

The Blazers keep earning solid wins, but their recent lack of domination has the cast poking around for what they might be needing as trade/free agency talk begins to affect the league as the year progresses. Now that Portland is a quality team, what's the affect of proposed player movement going to be on the team?

It's all recorded at Blitz Pearl in Northwest Portland, with the first episode joined by guests Mike Stasiak and Ben Hamblen, who provide an Eastern View of the Oregon drama.
