Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
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...

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...

Being part of the opening Thursday night game of the FBS season gives you two extra days to think about the result. For North Carolina, that was not a good thing. The Tar Heels not only lost that game to South Carolina 17-13, they...

The Louisville Cardinals (0-1) went to Atlanta and sent a very clear message to the rest of the college football world. We are coming for you. Louisville, in a mistake filled game, pushed Auburn to its very limits and almost...

There were plenty of positive signs in Clemson's 49-10 win over Wofford. Deshaun Watson, back from December ACL surgery, was on target and looked healthy. The offensive line pushed around the smaller Terriers in both...

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...

Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Va., was rocking on Monday night. After a little lull following Ohio State’s 14-0 start, the madness returned for the entire second quarter. Then an Ohio State score to open the third quarter dulled...

The Miami Hurricanes and the Florida Atlantic Owls began the 2015 season in two entirely different ways. Miami had an easy 45-0 win over the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats after experiencing a 75-minute weather delay because of lightning. FAU lost a...

The ACC didn’t pickup a key non-conference win in any of its marquee matchups, and the league slate for Week 2 isn’t full of enticing games. Notre Dame-Virginia is arguably the best matchup this Saturday, and the Fighting Irish are a...

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...

It’s a season of change in Tallahassee and the new-look Seminoles were unveiled on Saturday night. There was some sputtering at times early on, but Florida State was never challenged by Texas State and cruised to a 59-16 win. ...

Broken bone in the neck. It sounds very scary. It is very scary. And that is what Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams is now dealing with after colliding with the goal post on a touchdown catch Saturday against Wofford. Related: Five...

It is always difficult to get a true sense of a team after just one game. It’s even more difficult to gauge when the one game is against a vastly inferior opponent. Such is the case with Clemson after the 49-10 victory over Wofford. ...
