Nebraska’s De’Mornay Pierson-El Priming "Million Dollar Moves" for Return

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 11 months 3 days ago
I never had the opportunity to see Nebraska football legend Johnny “The Jet” Rodgers live. My only knowledge of his on-the-field exploits is limited to video, books and anecdotes. I’ve shook the man’s hand, seen the Heisman Trophy he won and heard the tales about how people used to say he was worth 14 points per game. I don’t refer to people as “the...

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 3 days ago
Conference play in the Big Ten is set to begin in full force in Week 5. After just one league game was played in September, six conference matchups dot the slate this Saturday. Indiana is 4-0 and hosts Ohio State in a huge opportunity for coach Kevin Wilson’s team to score an upset. While the Hoosiers-Buckeyes is an intriguing matchup, the Iowa-Wisconsin contest is the top Big Ten game...

Outrageous College Football Predictions for Week 5

By J.P. Scott, 11 months 4 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...

College Football's Top 10 Running Backs for September

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 4 days ago
Ranking any player or team after one month of the college football season is tough. With one-sided matchups skewing the statistics, and conference play not yet underway for most teams, it's hard to say whether these players will carry that momentum throughout the season. Still, September has been a great month for running backs. Here’s Athlon Sports’ take on the...

College Football's Top 10 Quarterbacks for September

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 4 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...

An Open Letter Concerning Nebraska DC Mark Banker

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 11 months 5 days ago
To Whom It May Concern, If you’re reading this with extreme interest, I’ll assume you’re a Nebraska football fan or at least have a curiosity of the workings of the program. It’s no secret that through four games, the Huskers’ pass defense has been — in a word — bad. However, should you have that complaint, I bring news from the west!...

College Football Awards for September

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 5 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...

Bo Pelini versus Mike Riley: Nebraska's 2015 Non-Conference Schedule

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 11 months 6 days ago
Fans at large didn’t ask for it and you may not have either. However, there’s at least the smallest wonder of how Bo Pelini would’ve done in 2015 thus far had he been given one more chance to prove he was the coach that Dear Ol’ Nebraska U needed. Let’s take seven years of what we know about Pelini’s exploits as the Huskers' head man to help us...

10 Amazing College Football Stats from Week 4

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 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...

College Football Week 4 Awards

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 1 week ago
Week 4 of the 2015 college football season is in the books. The Pac-12 was the conference in the spotlight on Saturday, as Arizona-UCLA, Oregon-Utah and Arizona State-USC were some of the weekend’s most anticipated matchups. However, all three games produced one-sided results. The mid-afternoon slate produced some of the best games from Week 4, including wild finishes at Tennessee-Florida...
