Major Position Changes in College Football History

By Aaron Tallent, 1 year 4 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 4 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 4 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 4 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...

Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Iowa State Cyclones Preview and Prediction

By Robert A. Boleyn, 1 year 4 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 4 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...

Big 12 Week 2 Predictions

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 4 months ago
The Big 12’s Week 2 slate is relatively light on interesting matchups. However, the Oklahoma-Tennessee contest should compensate for a schedule featuring a couple of blowout wins by teams against FCS opponents. Outside of the Volunteers-Sooners meeting on Rocky Top, Iowa State-Iowa is the other must-see matchup from the Big 12 in Week 2. In addition to the on-field action, all eyes...

Outrageous College Football Predictions for Week 2

By J.P. Scott, 1 year 4 months ago
Week 1 of the 2015 college football season came and went without a whole lot of surprises. Don't get me wrong, there was some good football played. Then again, if you're like me, any football is good football. That said, nothing outrageous and earth shattering took place. What does that mean? In my opinion, it means we're due. Sounds like a good reason to make a few outrageous...

Charlie Strong Rides with Jay Norvell as Texas' Offensive Coordinator

By Allen Kenney, 1 year 4 months ago
Ever since he got the Texas job, Charlie Strong’s vision for the Longhorn offense has come across as… hazy? Muddled? Scattered? He walked into the cradle of the spread and immediately set about trying to run the same pro-style offensive attack that brought him such success at Louisville. When that didn’t work, he reversed course after one year and decided that Texas would...

College Football's Top 15 Quarterback Debuts of 2015

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 4 months ago
New quarterbacks were under the spotlight in the first week of the 2015 college football season. UCLA’s Josh Rosen stole the spotlight with 351 yards against Virginia, as the true freshman garnered one of the top performances by a quarterback in Week 1. But the success of new signal-callers wasn’t limited to true freshman, as transfers Vernon Adams (Oregon), Everett Golson (Florida...
