Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. Iowa Hawkeyes Preview and Prediction

By Robert A. Boleyn, 9 months 2 weeks ago
It's college football border rivalry and grudge game season as the Minnesota Golden Gophers arrive in Iowa City with the coveted bronze pig once again on the line against a school-record 9-0 and No. 8-ranked Iowa Hawkeye squad. Minnesota laid down the hammer on the Hawkeyes in 2014 at home in the Twin Cities, winning 51-14 in a game that exemplified the late season woes of that...

Week 11 College Football Picks Against the Spread

By Braden Gall, 9 months 2 weeks ago
Picked against my own rooting interest last week and, while it helped my overall football predictions (TCU was overrated and Alabama is awesome), it meant two big losses in two big games. But, Navy and Stanford — both 7-2 against the spread this year — continued to pay off and I won the week.  What have you done for me lately, so, we move on to Week 11. So as...

Michigan Wolverines vs. Indiana Hoosiers Preview and Prediction

By Mike Bainbridge, 9 months 2 weeks ago
Indiana and Michigan have met 19 times since 1988 and not once have the Hoosiers come away victorious, including last year’s 34-10 loss in which the Wolverines allowed just 191 yards on offense. Unlike last year, though, this season’s matchup has high stakes on both sides. For the Hoosiers, there are only three more opportunities left in the year to secure bowl...

Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights Preview and Prediction

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 9 months 2 weeks ago
The head coaches of both Nebraska and Rutgers have said that they’re not thinking about the potential for bowl eligibility as a result of this game and that’s a good thing. If we’ve learned one thing about Nebraska this season it’s that no game is a guaranteed win and Rutgers... well, Rutgers stinks. Both have to pull off some upsets to even become bowl eligible...

Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Illinois Fighting Illini Preview and Prediction

By Chip Minnich, 9 months 2 weeks ago
Just when the college football world believes Ohio State has turned the corner, the Buckeyes turn in an underwhelming performance in their 28-14 victory over Minnesota. Cardale Jones did not throw any interceptions, suffered four sacks, threw one touchdown, and ran for the decisive touchdown, but did not have the type of showing that would cause Ohio State fans to believe Jones had reclaimed the...

Maryland Terrapins vs. Michigan State Spartans Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 9 months 2 weeks ago
Maryland staggers into East Lansing with nothing to lose. The Terrapins are already guaranteed to stay home during bowl season and have a losing record in Big Ten games. Their interim head coach and the rest of the staff are distracted with the thought that they will need to find employment elsewhere at the end of this month. The Spartans are stunned and angry about last week's game....

Week 11 of the 2015 college football season starts with two games on Wednesday night, including an intriguing matchup in the MAC between Bowling Green and Western Michigan. The midweek portion of the schedule continues on Thursday, as Virginia Tech travels to Georgia Tech in a critical game for the bowl hopes of both teams.

5 College Football Coordinators on the Hot Seat

By Steven Lassan, 9 months 2 weeks ago
College football’s offseason coaching carousel is already shaping up to be one of the busiest in recent years. Nine FBS coaching jobs are open as of Nov. 11, and the turnover won’t stop at the top. With several openings at the head coach level, the turnover and changes will continue into the assistant ranks. Coordinator changes should be active this offseason in every conference, and...

Outrageous College Football Predictions for Week 11

By J.P. Scott, 9 months 2 weeks ago
The full ramifications of the crazy finishes to the Arkansas-Ole Miss and Nebraska-Michigan State games last weekend have yet to be seen. What we do know is that those two outrageous finishes and outcomes created some alternate paths to the College Football Playoff. Week 11 has a couple of obvious matchups — and some not so obvious — that could do the same. Here are the...

Whirlwind Campaign Ending Should Help Justify Nebraska Hires

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 9 months 2 weeks ago
Nebraska football fans don’t ask for much as a blue blood program after tasting the success had during the '90s because once you get even a whiff of the best stuff, you always want more. They’d like to visit a nice bowl venue, see their team have a shot at a conference championship and in the modern age of college football, a Playoff appearance once in a while. The Big...
