Outrageous College Football Predictions for Week 7

By J.P. Scott, 3 months 1 week ago
I offer my “Outrageous Predictions” every week for the upcoming slate of college football action. Inevitably, I'll pick on the wrong fan base, get a prediction about a certain team wrong, and then face the scorn on social media.   That's the best part of making these predictions.   Truth be told, I get one or two right (see Navy beating Houston last week) pretty...

College Football's Post-Week 6 Bowl Projections

By Steven Lassan, 3 months 1 week ago
The first six weeks of the college football season are in the books. And as expected, the 2016 season has already experienced some unexpected teams on the rise and on the decline. Florida State was picked by many as a preseason favorite to reach the national championship, but the Seminoles are out of the picture with two losses. Louisville, Washington and Michigan are three teams on...

College Football Poll Watch: The Sooners are Back, the B1G is Top-Heavy and Houston has Problems

By J.P. Scott, 3 months 1 week ago
Houston, Miami and Tennessee were all in the AP top 10 heading into last weekend. Two of the three were favored in their games, yet all three came out on the losing side of their respective contests.   The results of those three games shook up the most recent AP Top 25 and Amway Coaches Polls and changed the complexion of several conference races — not to mention the College...

Seven-Step Drop: Truths and surprises that are defining the 2016 college football season

By Bryan Fischer, 3 months 1 week ago
Thanks to an incredible set of Week 6 games and a bunch of wild endings nobody saw coming, the race for the national title (and many conference championships) seemed to come into focus even further over the weekend as we come up on the halfway point of the 2016 college football season. While we got a few unexpected results from coast-to-coast, it was a pretty memorable slate of games that...

College Football Week 6 Awards

By Steven Lassan, 3 months 1 week ago
Week 6 of the 2016 college football season produced several big performances and memorable moments. Texas A&M edged Tennessee in an overtime thriller, Alabama dominated Arkansas, Florida State escaped Miami with its seventh win in a row in this series, while Washington snapped a 12-game losing streak to Oregon with a 70-21 blowout victory over the Ducks.    With the sixth weekend...

Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. Kansas State Wildcats Preview and Prediction

By Nicholas Ian Allen, 3 months 1 week ago
No other college football matchup this week features philosophical polar opposites like Texas Tech and Kansas State. The Red Raiders like to move fast offensively, sling the football all over the field, and have lit up the scoreboard for 55 points or more in every game this season.   The strategy has paid off with a 3-1 start for Kliff Kingsbury's team, including a 1-0 record in Big...

Iowa State Cyclones vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys Preview and Prediction

By Allen Kenney, 3 months 1 week ago
It’s not necessarily showing up in the win column, but Iowa State is gradually improving this season. The Cyclones followed up their first win of the season — and the first of Matt Campbell’s tenure as head coach — over San Jose State with last week’s near upset of Baylor. Given the state of the program that Campbell inherited, those incremental steps forward are...

College Football's 10 Best Position Battles to Watch in Week 6

By Bryan Fischer, 3 months 1 week ago
While we don’t have three games pitting top-10 teams against one another like last week and several games (including LSU vs. Florida) have already been postponed due to Hurricane Matthew, the upcoming college football slate is still loaded with some quality contests. As good as the matchups between the names on the front of the jerseys are this week though, the one-on-one...

Texas Longhorns vs. Oklahoma Sooners Preview and Prediction

By Allen Kenney, 3 months 2 weeks ago
Remember about a year ago, when there was all that talk about head coach Charlie Strong floundering in the build up to Texas’ annual date in the Cotton Bowl with Oklahoma? The Longhorns came out of their grudge match against the boys from north of the Red River with a 24-17 win that looked like it might springboard the program back into relevance in the Big 12 and on the national stage...
