The ACC was in the spotlight last Saturday night, as Florida State defeated Clemson in overtime to extend its winning streak to 19 games.

Buckeye State battle, surprising Maryland-Indiana game, Little Brown Jug highlight week
Big Ten 2014 Week 5 Preview and Predictions

The Big Ten isn’t the best conference in college football this season, but the season has at least been interesting.

 

By Week 5, we’re still left wondering where Ohio State stands, and a rare in-state matchup with the (distant) No. 2 program in the state will be an interesting barometer.

 

Perhaps Cincinnati-Ohio State is a mismatch, but we know Tommy Tuberville can beat Urban Meyer. The Bearcats coach is one of four coaches to beat Meyer twice in his career.

Pac-12 2014 Week 5 Preview and Predictions

The slate of action last weekend in the Pac-12 was seriously lacking but that didn’t stop the West Coast from entertaining the college football world thoroughly.

 

After a wild Hail Mary in Tucson and an intense back-and-forth affair in Pullman, both Oregon and Arizona deserve a week off. Cal and Washington State, however, must get off the mat and get back to work.

Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 4

Lots of defensive firepower taking a seat this week, as the first bye of the season shakes up Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings for Week 4. No Seattle, Cincinnati, Arizona, Denver, St. Louis or Cleveland means many an owner will have to look elsewhere to fill this spot in their lineup. One potential option could be San Diego. The Chargers have done a good job of limiting the opposition on the scoreboard (16.3 ppg, 4th in the NFL), as well as getting to the quarterback (7 sacks).

Even with six teams on bye, there are not a lot of changes as it relates to Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 4. Yes leading scorer Julius Thomas is not playing and his absence will probably be felt, but he’s the only one in the top 10 that’s not available this week.
