College football fans finally got the national championship game they've been clamoring for for years, and it doesn't include anyone south of the Mason-Dixon Line! Oregon will take on Ohio State in the grand finale, and there are actually some story angles that lesbian, gay, bisexual & trans fans may find particularly interesting. There are former band members and people at each school offering support for gay athletes.

We also dive into some trends, forecasts and predictions for the world of LGBT sports in 2015. Will we have more big-time pro athletes come out? What is the key work ahead of LGBT sports activists? There's a lot to be done and lots of hearts and minds to change, even as so many young people in sports are coming out.
