By J.P. Scott, 8 months 1 week ago
After another crazy weekend of college football, we knew there would be some shakeup in the AP Top 25 Poll. Louisville rocketed to No. 3, and deservedly so.

Seven-Step Drop: Is the rest of 2016 just a prelude for Nick Saban-Urban Meyer V?

By Bryan Fischer, 8 months 1 week ago
As the final minutes of Ohio State’s romp over Oklahoma ticked by and thoughts turned to what the college football universe looked like after Week 3, one couldn’t help but wonder why the television networks and marketers hadn’t trumpeted up the fact that, in more ways than one, this should have been billed as ‘Separation Saturday.’   The Buckeyes, even as...

By Kevin McGuire, 8 months 1 week ago
Few would have expected Northwestern to be still searching for its first win of the season by the time Duke rolled into Evanston in Week 3, but here we are. The Wildcats lost a tough one in the opener against Western Michigan and then took a second straight loss at home against FCS member Illinois State.

By Adam Kurkjian, 8 months 1 week ago
Neither Virginia Tech nor Boston College is quite where each respective program wants to be at the start of the season.   Although the Eagles are coming off of a 26-7 win over UMass last weekend, they started off with a disappointing 17-14 loss in the opener to Georgia Tech and have yet to win an ACC game since 2014. Meanwhile, the Hokies had a promising start in their primetime,...

South Florida Bulls vs. Syracuse Orange Preview and Prediction

By Adam Kurkjian, 8 months 1 week ago
Both teams come into this game with the same offensive philosophy: Run as many plays as possible, as quickly as possible, in order to score the most points as possible.   In other words, the slower the tempo, the worse off these teams feel they are, so expect a track meet at the Carrier Dome Saturday afternoon.   We know a little bit more about what Syracuse is capable of than...

By J.P. Scott, 8 months 1 week ago
If the first two weeks of the 2016 college football season have taught us anything, it's that no team is safe. We've already had teams we thought were almost shoo-ins to make the College Football Playoff lose games and find themselves on the brink of elimination from national contention.   Related: First Two Weeks of 2016 Season Have Already Showcased Everything We Love About...
