By Steven Lassan, 1 year 9 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...

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 9 months ago
Week 7 of the college football season is officially in the books. And as usual, the weekend slate of games didn’t disappoint. Saturday’s action started with Memphis knocking off Ole Miss 37-24 and continued into the afternoon with Michigan State’s crazy last-second victory over Michigan and Alabama’s 41-23 win over Texas A&M. The Week 7 slate concluded with...

Week 7 College Football Picks Against the Spread

By Braden Gall, 1 year 9 months ago
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 weekend (except one) and am feeling like going big or going home. We’ve also now entered the “win one for the Gipper... because...

Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs. North Carolina Tar Heels Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 9 months ago
North Carolina had last Saturday off. In the afternoon they probably turned on the TV to get a look at its next opponent, Wake Forest. What the Tar Heels player and coaches saw was pure ugliness. The Demon Deacons had 142 total yards with just 33 rushing yards. They had five first downs. They were outgained by 138 yards. Yet thanks to poor Boston College kicking, four BC turnovers...

Boston College Eagles vs. Clemson Tigers Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 9 months ago
Bear Bryant is believed to be the first person to say, “Offense sells tickets, but defense wins championships.” The Bear, however, did not live to see the 2015 Boston College football team, a group that proves Bryant's statement is not necessarily true. Steve Addazio's Eagles are No. 1 in the nation in rushing defense, passing defense, and total defense. They are No...

Syracuse Orange vs. Virginia Cavaliers Preview and Prediction

By Antwan Staley, 1 year 9 months ago
While the Virginia Cavaliers do not have a victory over an FBS opponent this season, they don’t have a bad loss on their resume either. Three of Virginia's losses have come against opponents that are currently ranked, and the fourth was against the Pittsburgh Panthers, who have a 4-1 record. The Syracuse Orange are coming off a terrible 45-24 loss to the South...

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Miami Hurricanes Preview and Prediction

By Antwan Staley, 1 year 9 months ago
After not playing at home in nearly a month, the Miami Hurricanes will return to Sun Life Stadium on Saturday as they will host the Virginia Tech Hokies. The Hurricanes are coming off a tough 29-24 road loss to their rival, the Florida State Seminoles last week. Virginia Tech evened their ACC record last weekend as they defeated the NC State Wolfpack 28-13. The Hokies defense held...

Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Preview and Prediction

By Justin Nails, 1 year 9 months ago
The 2015 season hasn’t exactly gone as planned for the Yellow Jackets. With four straight losses, Georgia Tech has fallen out of the playoff race and is in last place in the ACC Coastal standings. If the Yellow Jackets are going to make a run, now is the time to start. With five conference games and a showdown with Georgia left in the 2015 season, Georgia Tech will need a spectacular...

Louisville Cardinals vs. Florida State Seminoles Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 9 months ago
The 2015 season did not start well for Louisville. An ugly season-opening loss to Auburn was immediately followed by losses to Houston and Clemson. Coupled with some bad news out of the basketball program, September was a cruel month for Louisville. But after a win against FCS Samford, Louisville got back to 1-1 in the ACC with a win over NC State. Also, the losses to Clemson and...
