By Braden Gall, 10 months 2 weeks ago
If not for a 100-yard kickoff return from Western Michigan and two garbage time touchdowns from Louisville, I would have gone a nice 4-0 last week. But almost doesn't count with your bookie. This week, the advice is to stay away from the big games. Oklahoma-Tennessee could go over, under, blowout or overtime. Michigan State is the slight favorite and the pick against Oregon, but nothing...

UCLA’s Josh Rosen stole the spotlight with 351 yards against Virginia, as the true freshman garnered one of the top performances by a quarterback in Week 1.

5 College Football Teams That Quietly Impressed in Week 1

By Steven Lassan, 10 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 what happens when life throws you something far worse, like say, the loss of an eye? For one Alabama fan, the decision on what to do was quite easy.  Mary Bama Farr lost her left eye as a result of a plane crash in the 1970s.

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 most...

Alabama Secondary Poised For Rebound After Disappointing 2014

By Erik Stinnett, 10 months 3 weeks ago
The slide down the mountain has been undeniable. Especially last year. That's when the slide turned into a full-fledged, foot-slip-off-the-rock tumble. Alabama ranked No. 1 in the country in pass defense in 2011. That ranking fell to No. 7 in 2012 and then fell again to No. 11 in '13. Last year, it plummeted to No. 59. Yes, Alabama, a program Nick Saban has now built into a...
