NCAA Football: Hawaii at San Diego State Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

After a more-than-brief hiatus due to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football season kicking into high gear, One Foot Down’s College Football Name of the Year tournament is back with the Sweet 16!

The Irish’s own Equanimeous St. Brown is performing as well as ever in the voting done on this here Notre Dame fan site (imagine that!), but with most of the heavy hitters still remaining, who knows how long the ND wideout will last.

Been a Squally Canada fan since the beginning?

Was Dicaprio Bootle the name that broke your heart, so now you’ve hopped on the 15th-seeded Handsome Tanielu bandwagon?

Or are you just super jazzed about seeing Racey McMath take on Jet Toner, and Lion King take on all challengers to the throne/pride rock that seems to be rightfully his?

Then take the time to vote on the below 8 matchups and lend your support for your favorite names!

Voting will close on Friday at 6 PM ET, so make sure you, your friends, your family, your coworkers, and random strangers you encounter in your life all come here and cast their votes before then!

Here is the updated bracket.
