Appalachian State Mountaineers vs. Clemson Tigers Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 6 months ago
There were plenty of positive signs in Clemson's 49-10 win over Wofford. Deshaun Watson, back from December ACL surgery, was on target and looked healthy. The offensive line pushed around the smaller Terriers in both the run game and in pass protection. The defensive front was stingy against Wofford's option attack. And freshmen contributed in many ways...

By Elton Hayes, 1 year 6 months ago
When Notre Dame travels to Charlottesville, Va., to play Virginia on Saturday, it will be the program’s first game played in the Old Dominion State. Both teams met at Giants Stadium in New Rutherford, N.J., in 1989 to start the season, with Notre Dame beating Virginia 36-13. Notre Dame’s opening victory over Texas was overshadowed by a season-ending ACL injury to top running...

USF Bulls vs. Florida State Seminoles Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 6 months ago
South Florida and Florida State don’t have a long, deep-seeded rivalry, partially because the Bulls didn’t become an FBS program until 2000. In the schools' first meeting in 2009, the Bulls knocked off No. 18 Florida State in Tallahassee. Florida State got payback three years later with a 30-17 victory in Tampa. While the teams have not met very often, the players...

Furman Paladins vs. Virginia Tech Hokies Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 6 months ago
Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Va., was rocking on Monday night. After a little lull following Ohio State’s 14-0 start, the madness returned for the entire second quarter. Then an Ohio State score to open the third quarter dulled the excitement and quarterback Michael Brewer’s collarbone injury squashed any remaining hope. The Hokies now have to turn the page and...

Miami Hurricanes vs. Florida Atlantic Owls Preview and Prediction

By Antwan Staley, 1 year 6 months ago
The Miami Hurricanes and the Florida Atlantic Owls began the 2015 season in two entirely different ways. Miami had an easy 45-0 win over the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats after experiencing a 75-minute weather delay because of lightning. FAU lost a heartbreaker 47-44 on the road in overtime against the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes. Friday will be the first time any Power 5 conference opponent...

ACC Week 2 Predictions

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 6 months ago
The ACC didn’t pickup a key non-conference win in any of its marquee matchups, and the league slate for Week 2 isn’t full of enticing games. Notre Dame-Virginia is arguably the best matchup this Saturday, and the Fighting Irish are a heavy favorite over the Cavaliers. Elsewhere in the ACC this week, Louisville turns to true freshman Lamar Jackson at quarterback against Houston, while...

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 6 months ago

UCLA’s Josh Rosen stole the spotlight with 351 yards against Virginia, as the true freshman garnered one of the top performances by a quarterback in Week 1. But the success of new signal-callers wasn’t limited to true freshman, as transfers Vernon Adams (Oregon), Everett Golson (Florida...

5 College Football Teams That Quietly Impressed in Week 1

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 6 months ago
The first week of every college football season always generates overreaction on both sides of the talking point. If a team lost by a bigger margin than expected or struggled, it’s easy to say that team is worse than anticipated. But if a team wins in an upset or is more impressive than the preseason projections expected, the reaction is this team should be better than we thought....

Five Thoughts on Florida State After Week One

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 6 months ago
It’s a season of change in Tallahassee and the new-look Seminoles were unveiled on Saturday night. There was some sputtering at times early on, but Florida State was never challenged by Texas State and cruised to a 59-16 win. Despite the fact that they were playing Texas State, there were some things that really stood out with respect to the Seminoles. Here are five things...
