Tennessee Coach Butch Jones Tells Oklahoma LB Eric Striker to "Have Some Damn Class"

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 3 months ago
Oklahoma staged a furious second-half rally against Tennessee on Saturday, as the Sooners defeated the Volunteers 31-24 in Knoxville. But the on-field action wasn't the only part of Saturday's game that was noteworthy. Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker is one of the Sooners’ top defenders and attracted plenty of interest from Tennessee and coach Butch Jones for his comments...

Rice Owls vs. Texas Longhorns Preview and Prediction

By Lloyd H. Spence Jr., 1 year 3 months ago
Texas (0-1) is in trouble after just one game. It wasn't because the Longhorns were beaten by Notre Dame. It was the WAY they were beaten by Notre Dame. They were thoroughly dominated by the Irish in every phase of the game. There were many problems last Saturday. There were many mistakes made last Saturday. There were many missed opportunities last Saturday. There were glaring...

Major Position Changes in College Football History

By Aaron Tallent, 1 year 3 months ago
Numerous sportswriters have analyzed and praised former Ohio State starting quarterback Braxton Miller’s move to H-Back and I can’t blame them. We have never seen a three-year starting signal-caller and Heisman Trophy candidate move to another position in his senior year to make his team — the defending national champion — stronger. Most importantly, he looked pretty...

Tennessee Volunteers vs. Oklahoma Sooners Preview and Prediction

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 3 months ago
Tennessee and Oklahoma meet in Knoxville on Saturday evening for an intriguing Week 2 non-conference matchup, with this game also serving as a good barometer test for two programs looking to get back on track. Oklahoma was expected to be a playoff contender in 2014, but the Sooners slipped to 8-5. Bob Stoops wasted no time addressing his team's biggest problems, revamping his coaching staff...

Week 2 College Football Picks Against the Spread

By Braden Gall, 1 year 3 months ago
If not for a 100-yard kickoff return from Western Michigan and two garbage time touchdowns from Louisville, I would have gone a nice 4-0 last week. But almost doesn't count with your bookie. This week, the advice is to stay away from the big games. Oklahoma-Tennessee could go over, under, blowout or overtime. Michigan State is the slight favorite and the pick against Oregon, but nothing...

Lamar Cardinals vs. Baylor Bears Game Preview and Prediction

By Jeremy Simon, 1 year 3 months ago
Both teams started the season with impressive wins last week beating their opponents by a combined score of 122-24. Baylor's defense showed some weaknesses in the first half against SMU before shutting them down in the third and fourth quarters. Any of those weaknesses will probably disappear as Baylor returns both Shawn Oakman and Orion Stewart from suspension. Lamar was able...

By Robert A. Boleyn, 1 year 3 months ago
The Iowa Hawkeyes and Iowa State Cyclones renew their annual in-state Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk rivalry series this weekend as Iowa visits Jack Trice Stadium looking to remove the perpetual Cyclone thorn in head coach Kirk Ferentz's side. The Hawkeyes also will be playing in honor of former Hawkeye defensive standout Tyler Sash, who was found dead in his Oskaloosa, Iowa, home earlier in the...

Liberty Flames vs. West Virginia Mountaineers Preview and Prediction

By Jeremy Simon, 1 year 3 months ago
The West Virginia Mountaineers enter Saturday with confidence after shutting out Georgia Southern a week before. The Liberty Flames will enter Morgantown with a victory over Delaware State and ranked No. 13 in the FCS Coaches Poll. Both offenses showed well last weekend with Liberty accumulating 417 total yards, while the Mountaineers plied up 544. This will only be the second meeting...
