Seven-Step Drop Week 2: Big 12 Struggles Could Open a Few Doors

By Bryan Fischer, 1 week 6 days ago
It happens every single college football season, without fail.   There’s always that one week on the calendar where the slate of games looks less than appetizing and sometimes even down right appalling. By midweek you might be wondering whether or not to skip a few games on Saturday in order to take care of a few chores or spend time outside in that last bit of summer weather. On...

College Football's Top 25 Logos in 2016

By Jim Weber, 1 week 6 days ago
Logos don’t draw the same attention or excitement as uniforms but they are an inextricable part of each team’s brand that can be recognized around the world.   Just ask the New York Yankees. Or the Dallas Cowboys. Or the Chicago Bulls.   With that in mind, we rank the Top 25 FBS logos (in descending order) based on aesthetics, color combination and creativity....

College Football Week 2 Awards

By Steven Lassan, 2 weeks 7 hours ago
On paper, college football’s Week 2 slate wasn’t as enticing as the schedule from the opening weekend. However, as usual, another Saturday of action didn’t disappoint. There were plenty of intriguing games early, with Pitt-Penn State coming down to the wire, as well as East Carolina and Central Michigan knocking off Power 5 opponents. And there was no shortage of intrigue in...

SMU Mustangs vs. Baylor Bears Preview and Prediction

By Jeremy Simon, 2 weeks 2 days ago
Last season this matchup included a new head coach, SMU’s Chad Morris. This season’s meeting again includes a first-year head coach, but this time it is Baylor interim head coach Jim Grobe.   Both teams won their season openers. However, neither team was truly challenged. This weekend the Bears will still be without a challenge although SMU is definitely a step up in...

UTEP Miners vs. Texas Longhorns Preview and Prediction

By Allen Kenney, 2 weeks 2 days ago
Texas unveiled a new offense, a new quarterback rotation and a new sense of confidence in the opening week of the season against Notre Dame. The overtime victory is being treated as a breakthrough for the team, which hasn’t put together a satisfying season since Colt McCoy was still in school.   Reality sets back in this week with UTEP coming to Austin. UT should drill the Miners...

Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. Arizona State Sun Devils Preview and Prediction

By Kyle Kensing, 2 weeks 2 days ago
Arizona State and Texas Tech scored a combined 113 points, and won by a cumulative 83 in Week 1 routs of FCS opponents. Neither contest really leaves too much to glean, making their Week 2 meeting in Tempe the first substantive glimpse at either team.   While both the Sun Devils and Red Raiders have plenty of unknowns, recent history suggests Saturday's contest should provide...

Iowa State Cyclones vs. Iowa Hawkeyes Preview and Prediction

By J.P. Scott, 2 weeks 2 days ago
As they are in most years, expectations for the Iowa Hawkeyes and Iowa State Cyclones in 2016 are very different. The results of the opening weekend games played by each squad only further demonstrated that.   Iowa started fast, eventually cruising to a sound win over Miami (Ohio) out of the MAC. Iowa State, on the other hand, played poorly in nearly every facet of its game...

Arkansas Razorbacks vs. TCU Horned Frogs Preview and Prediction

By Steven Lassan, 2 weeks 2 days ago
An old Southwest Conference rivalry will be renewed on Saturday night, as former league mates Arkansas and TCU meet for the first time since 1991. These two programs have traveled an interesting path since their SWC days. While Arkansas landed securely in the SEC and hasn’t had to worry about conference realignment, TCU has played in four different leagues (five if you count the Big East...

5 Things on Oklahoma's To-Do List After Season-Opening Loss to Houston

By Allen Kenney, 2 weeks 3 days ago
Oklahoma’s bid to return to the College Football Playoff didn’t exactly get off to a rousing start with last weekend’s 33-23 loss to Houston.   The Sooners’ early offensive onslaught didn’t faze the Cougars, who counterpunched effectively behind quarterback Greg Ward Jr. and their attacking defense. Meanwhile, sloppy miscues prevented OU from getting back...

College Football's 10 Best Position Battles to Watch in Week 2

By Bryan Fischer, 2 weeks 3 days ago
After the best opening week ever in college football and some of the most anticipated position battles of the season, week 2 pumps the brakes a little when it comes to the product on the field. The non-conference slate is a little bare when it comes to power teams taking on other worthy challengers but there are still plenty of one-on-one battles that will be worth tuning in for.  ...
