Week 5 College Football Picks Against the Spread

By Braden Gall, 11 months 1 day ago
I probably won't bet on Auburn the rest of the season. Or Tennessee or TCU or Oregon. Every year in college football there are just teams that are more schizophrenic than others. Those are the teams to avoid and it appears we've got a lot of them in college football this season. Particularly, with all of the injuries mounting for Top 25 teams. Last Week: 4-3Year-to-date:...

Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Georgia Bulldogs Preview and Prediction

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 1 day ago
Georgia and Alabama have been two of the SEC’s top programs in recent years, and Saturday afternoon's matchup in Athens could be a preview of the conference championship game in early December. And in a slight role reversal, the Crimson Tide is not the favorite on Saturday. For the first time in 72 games, Alabama is considered an underdog. Georgia isn’t a huge favorite by Vegas...

Outrageous College Football Predictions for Week 5

By J.P. Scott, 11 months 3 days ago
The college football season is about a third of the way complete, and most of us still aren't sure what to make of it. Personally, I prefer it that way. Part of what makes the game so fascinating is its unpredictability, thanks in large part to both the number of teams and parity. As conference play kicks off for most of the teams in the country, now is normally the time we start seeing...

Alabama Defense Makes Strong Statement Ahead of Georgia Showdown

By Erik Stinnett, 11 months 3 days ago
Oh yeah, that Alabama defense. A month ago, the preseason talk was that this 2015 Alabama defense was going to be downright nasty. Mostly because of the front seven. In fact, some were saying the Tide's front seven this year just may be the best front seven of the Nick Saban era.  After the Ole Miss game on Sept. 19, the much-hyped Bama defense kind of got forgotten about a little...

College Football's Top 10 Quarterbacks for September

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 3 days ago
Ranking any player or team after one month of the college football season is nearly impossible. With one-sided matchups skewing the statistics, and conference play not yet underway for most teams, more data is needed before accurately judging quarterbacks or if a team will be a factor in the playoff picture. While a small sample size is tough to gather accurate results, it’s never too...

College Football Awards for September

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 4 days ago
The first month of the 2015 college football season is in the books. Unfortunately, that means this year is almost a third of the way finished. However, the next two months (plus a week in December) should bring plenty of crazy plays, memorable moments and great games. And of course, there is still plenty to be decided in every conference race, as well as the playoff picture. With the...

10 Amazing College Football Stats from Week 4

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 6 days ago
Numbers and statistics are a huge part of college football. Every Sunday, reading updated box scores and stats is like Christmas for fans and media members. Some stats like total offense and total defense are overrated, but each help paint a picture for a team or particular game. Whether the stats are historic, advanced or just an observation from a box score, Athlon Sports brings the...
