In Steve Addazio’s first two seasons at Boston College, he led the Eagles to back-to-back winning records and seemingly had the program on an upward trajectory. But after a 3-9 campaign in 2015, momentum is no longer on his side, as evidenced in a most recent recruiting class that ranked toward the bottom of the ACC. Part of last year’s slide can’t be blamed on Addazio, as...

For the first time since 1997, the Tar Heels had a double-figure win total and they gave conference champ Clemson all they could handle in the ACC title game. They were rewarded with a bid to the Russell Athletic Bowl where they played Baylor. That’s where the fun ended. UNC’s performance in the bowl game was not what...

By Antwan Staley, 1 year 3 weeks ago
In head coach Dave Doeren's third season at NC State, the Wolfpack finished with one fewer victory than they had in 2014. In 2015, NC State finished 7-6 after recording an 8-5 record the season before. NC State did however make a second straight bowl appearance, but the team lost in the Belk Bowl to Mississippi State. Now in Doeren's fourth season in Raleigh, the Wolfpack will...
