Paul Chryst returns to Madison for his first game as the head coach of Wisconsin. Unfortunately for Chryst and the Badgers, it's on the heels of a 35-17 loss to Alabama, where the Badgers rushed for an embarrassing 40 yards on 21 carries.  After surrendering 502 yards of total offense to the Crimson Tide, the Badgers have shifted their focus to the RedHawks of Miami (Ohio).

Buffalo Bulls vs. Penn State Nittany Lions Preview and Prediction

By Kevin McGuire, 11 months 3 weeks ago
Penn State got off on the wrong foot in the 2015 season opener last week. On the road in Philadelphia against the Temple Owls, Penn State’s offensive line showed as many holes, if not more, than anybody wanted to see after the 2014 season. Penn State allowed quarterback Christian Hackenberg to be sacked 10 times by the feisty Owls defense. This week Penn State hopes a little home cooking...

Why Chris Laviano over Hayden Rettig is a Bad Move for Rutgers Moving Forward

By Chris Dougherty, 11 months 3 weeks ago
Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood is certainly an interesting man. His recent announcement naming sophomore quarterback Chris Laviano the starter over LSU transfer Hayden Rettig was both surprising and bold.

Outrageous College Football Predictions for Week 2

By J.P. Scott, 11 months 3 weeks 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...

How A New Cornhuskers' Era-Opening Loss Affects Mike Riley’s Recruiting

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 11 months 3 weeks ago
Ah, college football recruiting. There’s nothing quite like it and I mean that. It has the drama of a soap opera, the passion of the game itself and politics that rival anything in Washington D.C. I wondered what effect (if any) Nebraska’s loss to BYU would have on a currently solid recruiting class. My super-duper recruiting database ran a scan before finding Rivals....

5 College Football Teams That Quietly Impressed in Week 1

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 3 weeks ago
The first week of every college football season always generates overreaction on both sides of the talking point. If a team lost by a bigger margin than expected or struggled, it’s easy to say that team is worse than anticipated. But if a team wins in an upset or is more impressive than the preseason projections expected, the reaction is this team should be better than we thought....

5 Things We Learned From Ohio State's Win Over Virginia Tech

By Chip Minnich, 11 months 3 weeks ago
Ohio State began the 2015 season in sterling fashion in Blacksburg, Va., defeating the Virginia Tech Hokies 42-24. The game was hyped by Ohio State fans as a revenge game, as Virginia Tech was the lone team to defeat the Buckeyes in 2014. The game also was noteworthy as four key Ohio State players (Joey Bosa, Dontre Wilson, Jalin Marshall, Corey Smith) were suspended for the season opener,...
