Quarterbacks are always under heavy scrutiny for all 128 college football teams, and the pressure only increases in big-time matchups. While it’s still very early in the 2015 season, there are a handful of teams with critical matchups in Week 3.
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.
Numerous sportswriters have analyzed and praised former Ohio State starting quarterback Braxton Miller’s move to H-Back and I can’t blame them.

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 big games. Oklahoma-Tennessee could go over, under, blowout or overtime. Michigan State is the slight favorite and the pick against Oregon, but nothing would surprise in East Lansing. And LSU is capable of doing pretty much anything in Starkville.
