By Aaron Tallent, 10 months 1 day ago
ESPN’s SEC Storied documentary, “The Play That Changed College Football” tells the story of the first college football conference championship game, pitting undefeated Alabama against 8-3 Florida in 1992.

By Braden Gall, 10 months 1 day ago
I wrapped up one of my best seasons against the spread last week with a modest 3-2 mark. Betting against Les Miles was a mistake on so many levels. However, after going 3-2 last week, I've finished the year 50-33.

By J.P. Scott, 10 months 2 days ago
Nobody called this. Back in August, most experts, writers and fans had Ohio State playing either Minnesota, Wisconsin or Nebraska for the Big Ten title. Michigan State would provide Ohio State with a formidable opponent and a quality win, but nothing more. Iowa? Please. Kirk Ferentz was coaching for his job again and Hawkeye Nation was strapping in for another mediocre campaign. That,...

10 Head Coaching Moves College Football Programs Would Like to Forget

By Aaron Tallent, 10 months 3 days ago
There are numerous college football head coaching vacancies this season that are likely keeping their respective athletic directors up at night.
