SEC Week 3 Predictions

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 1 week ago
After a strong performance in Week 1, the SEC took its share of hits in Week 2. Auburn needed overtime to defeat Jacksonville State, Arkansas lost to Toledo and Tennessee blew a 17-0 lead to Oklahoma in a 31-24 two-overtime loss. The focus in Week 3 shifts to conference play, as the top four matchups in the SEC this week feature games between league rivals. Ole Miss-Alabama is the top game for...

Outrageous College Football Predictions for Week 3

By J.P. Scott, 1 year 1 week ago
College football is in full swing and we're already seeing pretenders fall and contenders rise. We've seen some fantastic individual performances, phenomenal finishes and unfortunately, some season-ending injuries. What we haven't seen this far, however, is anything really outrageous (unless you count Jacksonville State taking Auburn to overtime). Sounds like a great time...

Field Goal Kicking Woes Nothing New For Alabama

By Erik Stinnett, 1 year 1 week ago
The most unnerving sight for Alabama football followers these days?  No, it's not a third-and-long pass by an opposing quarterback thrown between a pair of 'Bama defensive backs who appear to be almost -- almost being the operative word -- in perfect position to make a play on the ball. And, no, it's not an off-the-mark spiral heaved up by an under-pressure Jake Coker...

10 College Football QBs Looking to Make a Statement in Week 3

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 1 week ago
Quarterbacks are always under heavy scrutiny for all 128 college football teams, and the pressure only increases in big-time matchups. While it’s still very early in the 2015 season, there are a handful of teams with critical matchups in Week 3. Whether it’s a conference contest, a non-conference matchup or a player looking to solidify his place at the top of the depth chart, Week 3...

10 Amazing College Football Stats from Week 2

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 1 week 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...

Alabama Running Back Derrick Henry On Way To Eclipsing Highly Accomplished Predecessors

By Erik Stinnett, 1 year 2 weeks ago
Psst. You know that running back at Alabama this year? The guy that looks like a tallish, somewhat leaned-out linebacker and runs like a receiver? The one getting plenty of pub this week after what he did to the Wisconsin defense last Saturday? Yeah, Derrick Henry. The guy is pretty good. No, seriously, he's pretty good. How good you ask. Put it this way: remember...

Alabama Hopes Saturday's Meeting Against MTSU Doesn't Follow 2002's Script

By Aaron Tallent, 1 year 2 weeks ago
After dispatching Wisconsin last week, it is possible that Alabama is hoping for a tune-up this week against Middle Tennessee. The Blue Raiders are coming off a 6-6 season and let’s face it; Conference USA is not the SEC. However, I imagine Alabama fans approach this game with a bit of trepidation since the first meeting between the Crimson Tide and the Blue Raiders produced quite a scare...

Major Position Changes in College Football History

By Aaron Tallent, 1 year 2 weeks ago
Numerous sportswriters have analyzed and praised former Ohio State starting quarterback Braxton Miller’s move to H-Back and I can’t blame them. We have never seen a three-year starting signal-caller and Heisman Trophy candidate move to another position in his senior year to make his team — the defending national champion — stronger. Most importantly, he looked pretty...

Week 2 College Football Picks Against the Spread

By Braden Gall, 1 year 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...

Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders vs. Alabama Crimson Tide Preview and Prediction

By Elton Hayes, 1 year 2 weeks ago
Middle Tennessee travels to Tuscaloosa on Saturday for its third meeting with the Crimson Tide. Alabama currently leads the series 2-0, with its last win over the Blue Raiders coming in 2005. Alabama rolls into this one a week after dispatching Wisconsin 35-17 before a crowd of 64,000 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Crimson Tide's vaunted defensive line held Wisconsin...
