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.

Notre Dame-Virginia is arguably the best matchup this Saturday, and the Fighting Irish are a heavy favorite over the Cavaliers. Elsewhere in the ACC this week, Louisville turns to true freshman Lamar Jackson at quarterback against Houston, while...

New quarterbacks were under the spotlight in the first week of the 2015 college football season. 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, 3 weeks 6 days 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 if a team wins in an upset or is more impressive than the preseason projections expected, the reaction is this team should be better than we thought....

Virginia Cavaliers vs. UCLA Bruins Preview and Prediction

By Kyle Kensing, 1 month 2 days ago
