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...

The first week of the college football season was not necessarily positive for either the Pittsburgh Panthers or the Akron Zips. While Pitt won, beating an FCS opponent, even a good one like Youngstown State, by only eight points wasn’t...

South Florida and Florida State don’t have a long, deep-seeded rivalry, partially because the Bulls didn’t become an FBS program until 2000. In the schools' first meeting in 2009, the Bulls knocked off No. 18 Florida State in...
