Seven-Step Drop: Coaching Carousel About to Kick into High Gear

By Bryan Fischer, 3 months 2 days ago
It goes without saying that the last game on everybody’s must-watch list on Saturday was Texas at Kansas.   The Jayhawks have been dreadful for years and rarely competitive during Big 12 play this or any other season. The Longhorns were expected to take care of business, become bowl eligible and set up a big game on Black Friday that would ultimately go a long way in sorting out...

By Steven Lassan, 3 months 3 days ago
Week 12 of the 2016 college football season produced several big performances and memorable moments. Saturday's slate didn't produce another week of upsets, but there were several key matchups that will have a role in determining conference champions or the playoff picture.

Arizona Wildcats vs. Oregon State Beavers Preview and Prediction

By John Coon, 3 months 5 days ago
Things have spiraled out of control for Arizona since Pac-12 play started. As injuries and losses pile up, the Wildcats find themselves closing in on the wrong kind of milestone.   Arizona (2-8, 0-7 Pac-12) has lost eight straight league games dating back to last season and 11 of its last 12. The Wildcats have never finished a season without a Pac-12 win since joining the league back in...

USC Trojans vs. UCLA Bruins Preview and Prediction

By Kyle Kensing, 3 months 5 days ago
Every year since 1929 — and in some years, twice — UCLA and USC have met on the football field in competition. Saturday marks the 86th installment of the series, sometimes referred to as the Crosstown Rivalry.   No matter the label applied to it, the showdown between Los Angeles' only football-playing, Div. I universities is one of the most heated rivalries in college...

Arizona State Sun Devils vs. Washington Huskies Preview and Prediction

By Kyle Kensing, 3 months 5 days ago
Washington's College Football Playoff hopes took a substantial hit last Saturday, when the Huskies lost at home to USC, 26-13. With two games still remaining in the regular season, and a Pac-12 Championship Game berth should Washington win out, head coach Chris Petersen can invoke Bluto Blutarsky in his next pregame speech:   Nothing's over until we decide it is!   Yes,...

Stanford Cardinal vs. California Golden Bears Preview and Prediction

By Kyle Kensing, 3 months 5 days ago
Stanford's run at or near the top of the Pac-12 has coincided with a monopolization of The Axe.   The Axe — awarded to the winner of the annual Big Game, played between Bay Area rivals Cal and Stanford — last resided in Berkeley in 2009. That's also the last season Stanford's overall record failed to eclipse that of Cal.   After losing at Washington State...

Oregon Ducks vs. Utah Utes Preview and Prediction

By John Coon, 3 months 5 days ago
Utah and Oregon have taken much different paths since the two teams played a season ago. The Utes have quietly established themselves as a legitimate Pac-12 South title contender. The Ducks, on the other hand, are no longer soaring above the Pac-12 North.   When Utah hosts Oregon on Saturday, the stakes are much higher for the No. 12 Utes than a year ago. Utah (8-2, 5-2 Pac-12) needs a...

Washington State Cougars vs. Colorado Buffaloes Preview and Prediction
