By Brandon Cavanaugh, 11 months 2 days ago
Last week’s loss to Northwestern was disappointing in so many ways and if Nebraska’s going to make a bowl game, it has all of four contests left to stamp a ticket. Plenty of 6-6 teams have to worry about being on a bubble, but a school that brings fans (and their cash) like Nebraska is hard for any bowl committee to turn down. Not only that, but the getting the opportunity...

The Michigan Wolverines (5-2) and Minnesota Golden Gophers (4-3) will meet Saturday night in the 102nd meeting for the Little Brown Jug, currently held by the Gophers after a 30-14 blowout victory last season in the Big House. While Michigan is looking to bounce back following a crushing loss at the hands of their in-state rivals two weeks ago, the Gophers will be looking to...

Week 9 College Football Picks Against the Spread

By Braden Gall, 11 months 2 days ago
Boy was I wrong about Texas A&M and Utah. Thought Vegas was off on those lines last weekend and, once again, the Wise Guys prove to be the best analysts in the game. (Amazing how that works.) However, I've gone to the Houston, Bowling Green and Washington State wells of late and it's paid off multiple times now. Last Week: 4-4Year-to-date: 29-22 Tennessee (-9) at...

By Robert A. Boleyn, 11 months 2 days ago
The No. 10 Iowa Hawkeyes will find themselves in recently uncharted territory this weekend as they play host to the struggling, but still potentially explosive Maryland Terrapins. The Terrapins are catching the Hawkeyes just as they've become one of the hottest of the country's “hot” teams. At 7-0, 3-0 the Hawkeyes have gotten off to their best record since a 9...

Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Wisconsin Badgers Preview and Prediction

By J.P. Scott, 11 months 2 days ago
The Wisconsin Badgers were expected by most people to contend for a division title as usual. Despite key injuries and some early setbacks, they're doing just that. Their only two losses of the season have come at the hands of two top-10 teams. Outside of those games, the Badgers have pressed on and are looking to win double-digit games for the fifth time in seven years. The Rutgers...

Penn State will face its third interim head coach of the season this weekend when Illinois rolls into Happy Valley. For the second straight weekend, Penn State must prepare for a team playing under an interim, with Bill Cubit doing the honors for the Illini. Cubit has managed to keep the football program afloat in what could have easily been turned into a dumpster fire of a season. At 4-3,...

It's Time for Nebraska Football to Consider the Fountain of Youth

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 11 months 3 days ago
How appropriate that we’re enjoying the time of year when ghouls and goblins roam our streets to touch on the topic about blood in Nebraska’s football program. Young blood that is, specifically on-the-field talent. I’m not coach Mike Cavanaugh, who handles the Big Red offensive line (only when I play "NCAA Football" on my PlayStation). However, one has to...

Ranking the Watchability of Every College Football Game in Week 9

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 3 days ago
College football’s Week 9 slate features 53 games, starting with six matchups on Thursday night. With over 40 games on Saturday, it’s not easy being a college football fan. At times, there’s simply too much going on to stay on top of all of the action.
