Morning Six Pack: December 27, 2012

College Football, like beer. Even when it’s bad, it’s pretty good. Check out these six college football stories from around the country.

Central Michigan edges Western Kentucky in Little Caesars Bowl

Central Michigan bounced back from a pair of late calls that didn't go their way.

Saunders leaving Florida, maybe heading to Louisville.

De'Ante ‘Pop' Saunders' up-and-down Florida career is now over. The sophomore safety told The Sun on Wednesday that he has been released from the UF football program.

Rodney Garner represents a true son, brother and father of Auburn football

Rodney and Kim Garner’s five daughters between the ages of 8 and 15 years old have never lived anywhere but Athens, Ga. They make a point to visit Auburn twice a year, when Rodney and Kim can show their girls where their parents met and attended college.

Bolstered size, daily improvement the ingredients for Notre Dame defense's turnaround

The Fighting Irish rank fourth in rush defense (92.42 yards allowed per game), 20th in pass defense (194.42 per game), sixth in total defense (286.83 per game) and first in scoring defense (10.33 points per game).

Brandon Hill signed SEC financial aid agreement with Alabama

Hill, who verbally committed to Ole Miss in November and publicly said he was switching back to Alabama late last night, was apparently done with the recruiting process after he signed the paper in early December.

Quotable:

"I took the long road,'' he said. "Academically, I didn't apply myself coming into college out of high school. I wanted football to support my education through a scholarship, so I had to show that I could do the work. I had a 3.0 my first two semesters, so that gave me a lot of confidence coming from high school to Kent State.

"My biggest problem was I never knew how to study for a test. I never studied for a test until I got into college. All I did in high school was homework. College, that's really all it is is (writing) papers and (taking) exams and such, so I had to get better at taking exams.

I'm proud. I knew it was going to be a long road, but I saw the light. I didn't know how long it was going to take to get there.''
