USC Trojans vs. Utah Utes Preview and Prediction

By John Coon, 6 days 5 hours ago
Are the wheels coming off for USC? Things look bleak for the Trojans after a 1-2 start. USC has struggled to find any sort of consistency on offense against Power Five teams, scoring just one touchdown and three field goals in losses to Alabama and Stanford.   It led Trojans head coach Clay Helton to make a change at quarterback on Monday. Redshirt freshman Sam Darnold will get the...

By Bryan Fischer, 6 days 8 hours ago
Week 3 of the 2016 college football season is in the books and so is the non-conference slate for most of the teams across the country. As a result, the move into league play is set to produce some interesting games all over the map as the season really starts to heat up. As good as the matchups between the names on the front of the jerseys are though, the one-on-one battles between the names...

By Steven Lassan, 1 week 5 hours ago
College football’s Week 4 slate kicks off on Thursday night with an ACC showdown between Clemson and Georgia Tech. The Tigers have a huge showdown against Louisville next Saturday, but coach Dabo Swinney’s team can’t overlook the Yellow Jackets after losing five straight road matchups in this series.

15 Teams That Have Impressed Three Weeks Into the 2016 College Football Season

By Steven Lassan, 1 week 8 hours ago
The 2016 college football season is only three weeks old. However, it’s never too early to look back at the preseason rankings and identify a few teams that have impressed or are poised to easily exceed projections. Louisville has emerged as a playoff contender after soundly defeating Florida State last week, while Nebraska, Utah, Texas A&M and Texas have each scored key wins through...

College Football Week 3 Awards

By Steven Lassan, 1 week 2 days ago
Week 3 featured several high-profile matchups, but the big winners on Saturday were Louisville, Alabama and Ohio State.

Seven-Step Drop: Is the rest of 2016 just a prelude for Nick Saban-Urban Meyer V?

By Bryan Fischer, 1 week 2 days ago
As the final minutes of Ohio State’s romp over Oklahoma ticked by and thoughts turned to what the college football universe looked like after Week 3, one couldn’t help but wonder why the television networks and marketers hadn’t trumpeted up the fact that, in more ways than one, this should have been billed as ‘Separation Saturday.’   The Buckeyes, even as...

UCLA Bruins vs. BYU Cougars Preview and Prediction

By Mitch Harper, 1 week 5 days ago
UCLA (1-1) travels to Provo for the first time since 2008. In that last visit to Cougar Town, the Bruins suffered a record 59-0 loss at the hands of BYU. A lot has changed in the last eight years, including the Bruins getting a 24-23 win over the Cougars last season.   BYU (1-1) enters this game looking to bounce back after a sixth straight loss to rival Utah that came down to a gutsy...

Texas Longhorns vs. California Golden Bears Preview and Prediction

By Josh Webb, 1 week 5 days ago
Cal always knew that 2016 was going to be a retooling year in many different forms. There’s the obvious loss of Jared Goff’s “it” factor, but the Golden Bears also are reconstructing their defense and breaking in a new offensive coordinator and a host of inexperienced skill position players. It’s not so much one huge thing as a bunch of medium-sized things that...

Hawaii Rainbow Warriors vs. Arizona Wildcats Preview and Prediction

By Kyle Kensing, 1 week 5 days ago
Another week, another flight over the Pacific for the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors. America's most-traveled college football program gets something of a reprieve in its fourth contest of 2016 after having flown from Sydney, Australia, to Ann Arbor, Michigan, and back to Honolulu for its first three contests.   The six-hour flight to Tucson is just a hop, skip and a jump in comparison....

Utah Utes vs. San Jose State Spartans Preview and Prediction

By John Coon, 1 week 5 days ago
It's rare for any football team to commit six turnovers and still find a way to win a game. Utah pulled off such a feat in last Saturday’s 20-19 victory over BYU.   The Utes (2-0) coughed up three fumbles and junior quarterback Troy Williams threw three interceptions. Still, Utah allowed the Cougars to score just 13 points off those miscues. Kyle Whittingham’s team to 19-1...
