It was inevitable. A regression to the mean. Aka, a losing weekend. I did get two of my three Letdown Alert picks correct but that struggling Florida State offense ruined me for the weekend. I'm not shying away from the big games this...

Stanford cruised to an easy win over UCLA on Thursday night, but the final score (56-35) and a huge statistical night from running back Christian McCaffrey is going to be overlooked thanks to receiver Francis Owusu’s ridiculous touchdown...

LOS ANGELES — Think of swagger in college football, and certain programs are bound to come to mind: Miami in the 1980s and early 2000s; Florida State through the 1990s; USC in the 2000s or many SEC teams of the last decade. Swagger...

The allure of this match has waned over the past two weeks. First, UCLA lost at home by 15 points to unranked Arizona State two Saturdays ago. Then, Stanford's sole loss at Northwestern to open the season looks much less forgivable after...

Week 6 gave us plenty of outrageousness, however, much of it took place away from the field. A couple of coaching vacancies and the loss of a starting quarterback on a contender due to PEDs dominated the headlines. Week 7 is set up to be...

Utah stands as the last remaining undefeated team in the Pac-12. Luck has nothing to do with the Utes reaching this point. Utah has been dominating opponents with one of its best defenses in a long history of strong defensive play. The Utes...

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...

8-0 last weekend. Yup, I'm going to soak that one in. The worst part of going 8-0 is knowing that it will never happen again — sort of like being a Mets fan this October. But I digress. On to Week 6 where emotional letdowns...
