Week 5 College Football Picks Against the Spread

By Braden Gall, 1 year 3 months ago
I probably won't bet on Auburn the rest of the season. Or Tennessee or TCU or Oregon. Every year in college football there are just teams that are more schizophrenic than others. Those are the teams to avoid and it appears we've got a lot of them in college football this season. Particularly, with all of the injuries mounting for Top 25 teams. Last Week: 4-3Year-to-date:...

Texas Longhorns vs. TCU Horned Frogs Preview and Prediction

By Jeremy Simon, 1 year 3 months ago
There couldn’t be two more polar-opposite teams when it comes to luck than TCU and Texas. Texas is coming off two heartbreaking losses in which last second blunders on special teams have cost them games. TCU is coming off a victory at Texas Tech in which the Frogs' Aaron Green just happened to be in the right place at the right time. There is no question the Longhorns are...

West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Oklahoma Sooners Preview and Prediction

By Allen Kenney, 1 year 3 months ago
Ever since West Virginia joined the Big 12 in 2012, the Mountaineers have come oh so close to knocking off Oklahoma in each of their meetings, losing the three games by a combined 22 points. WVU could get over that hump this year. The ‘Eers have throttled their first three opponents this year behind a defense that has allowed a paltry 7.7 points per game. Meanwhile, the WVU offense...

The Big 12 generated plenty of conversation and intrigue across the nation last Saturday from the thrilling TCU-Texas Tech game, along with Oklahoma State’s last-minute win over Texas. But the Week 5 slate is even more appealing. West Virginia is a quiet 3-0, and the Mountaineers have their biggest test of the season against Oklahoma on Saturday. Conference play in the state of Texas...

Ranking College Football Conferences After September

By John La Fleur, 1 year 3 months ago
A perennial topic of debate among college football fans has involved this question: Which conference is the strongest? Unfortunately, the answers are too often tainted by personal or regional biases. Local media focus on teams in their respective markets so they tend to underestimate or ignore teams located elsewhere. Even the talking heads covering college football at the national level cannot...

Outrageous College Football Predictions for Week 5

By J.P. Scott, 1 year 3 months ago
The college football season is about a third of the way complete, and most of us still aren't sure what to make of it. Personally, I prefer it that way. Part of what makes the game so fascinating is its unpredictability, thanks in large part to both the number of teams and parity. As conference play kicks off for most of the teams in the country, now is normally the time we start seeing...

Ranking any player or team after one month of the college football season is nearly impossible. With one-sided matchups skewing the statistics, and conference play not yet underway for most teams, more data is needed before accurately judging quarterbacks or if a team will be a factor in the playoff picture. While a small sample size is tough to gather accurate results, it’s never too...

By J.P. Scott, 1 year 3 months ago
College football is a sport driven by the men on the sideline. Teams take on the attitude, approach, work ethic and style of their coaches — for better or worse. As we've seen throughout the history of the sport, one right or wrong coaching hire can change the trajectory of a program for decades. One of the bigger names in coaching is currently out of a job.
