10 Amazing College Football Stats from Week 11

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 8 months ago
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. Whether the stats are historic, advanced or just an observation from a box score, Athlon Sports brings the...

Week 11 College Football Picks Against the Spread

By Braden Gall, 1 year 8 months ago
Picked against my own rooting interest last week and, while it helped my overall football predictions (TCU was overrated and Alabama is awesome), it meant two big losses in two big games. But, Navy and Stanford — both 7-2 against the spread this year — continued to pay off and I won the week.  What have you done for me lately, so, we move on to Week 11. So as...

Clemson Tigers vs. Syracuse Orange Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 8 months ago
The ACC Atlantic Division is secured, but there is plenty at stake for the nation’s No. 1 team. That’s good because there are plenty of reasons that Clemson could sleep through this week’s game against Syracuse. The Tigers will head up to the Carrier Dome after putting away their chief competitor in the Atlantic Division, Florida State. The Orange have lost six...

Miami Hurricanes vs. North Carolina Tar Heels Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 8 months ago
On Oct. 25, a day after a 58-0 whitewashing by Clemson, Miami fans finally got what they wanted. Al Golden was out. Since that time, the Hurricanes are 2-0, improving their record to 6-3. Miami won’t be going to a major bowl game, but with three games remaining, the Canes could compile a decent record that would be a building block for next year. Couple that with the hope that always comes...

Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 8 months ago
Forgive Wake Forest if it's having a case of déjà vu. In 2012 the Demon Deacons came to South Bend to play No. 3 Notre Dame on Senior Day. Fast-forward three years and Wake is again heading to Michiana to face No. 4 Notre Dame on Senior Day. Since the Irish won 38-0 that day, ND hopes for déjà vu as well. Notre Dame returns home after its two-week Pennsylvania excursion, coming...

NC State Wolfpack vs. Florida State Seminoles Preview and Prediction

By Antwan Staley, 1 year 8 months ago
The 2015 season has been a little different for the Florida State Seminoles. Unlike the previous three seasons, the Seminoles will not win the ACC championship after losing to the Clemson Tigers 23-13 last weekend. With the win, Clemson clinched the ACC Atlantic Division for the first time since the 2011 season. Florida State (7-2, 5-2 in the ACC) will look to snap back as the team...

Virginia Cavaliers vs. Louisville Cardinals Preview and Prediction

By Lloyd H. Spence Jr., 1 year 8 months ago
Virginia and Louisville are both experiencing streaks, just in two different directions. The Louisville Cardinals have won four of their last five games and seem to be settling down in ACC play. The Cardinals are averaging 26 points per game, but are only giving up 21 points on the season and even fewer than that over the last five games. That consistency has made...

Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Duke Blue Devils Preview and Prediction

By Marky Billson, 1 year 8 months ago
Two teams trying to salvage their seasons will meet in Durham when Pitt (6-3) travels to play Duke (6-3). The Panthers have suffered two setbacks, a 26-19 to North Carolina and 42-30 to Notre Dame in games that legitimately weren't that close. Meanwhile the Blue Devils were trounced by the archrival Tar Heels last week 66-31. But while these two teams are...

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Preview and Prediction

By Justin Nails, 1 year 8 months ago
Thursday will mark the 13th time in history that Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech have met. This ACC matchup has become must-see television, as only one game since 2008 as been decided by more than a touchdown. Georgia Tech enters Thursday’s game 3-6 after coming off a huge win over Florida State two weeks ago. The Yellow Jackets must win out if they are to reach bowl eligibility. With...
