New Mexico Bowl Preview and Prediction: Colorado State vs. Washington State

Think there are too many bowl games this year? Don’t tell that to Colorado State and Washington State. The Rams and Cougars are set to open the bowl season in Albuquerque, and even though the combined record of these two teams is 13-12, this game could be one of the better pre-Christmas bowl matchups.

SEC Basketball: The Best and Worst in 2013-14 So Far

As Kentucky stumbles, Prather and Florida take top spot in SEC
SEC Basketball: The Best and Worst in 2013-14 So Far

Suffice to say, the SEC has not shaken out the way anyone would have predicted in mid-December.

Missouri is the last undefeated team in the league, and Kentucky has the same amount of losses as Vanderbilt and Auburn. Granted, not every loss or undefeated season is created equal.

Let’s get this out of the way: The greatest conference in college basketball history the ACC is not. ... yet.

Don’t blame the powerhouses, though. Even though North Carolina has two losses it would like to forget, the Tar Heels have three wins as good as anyone in the country. Meanwhile, Syracuse and Duke are contending for the ACC and probably more thanks to the play of key freshmen — Jabari Parker at Duke and Tyler Ennis at Syracuse.

Matt Prater is still No. 1 on Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 16 kicker rankings, but there's no doubt who the most polarizing kicker is.

Peyton Manning is on the verge of reaching some significant milestones, so no one should be surprised to see him leading off Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 16 quarterback rankings. But while Manning no doubt carried many a fantasy team to the championship game, he's not the only quarterback who could end up helping an owner bring home the title this week.
