Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Akron Zips Preview and Prediction

By Marky Billson, 1 year 8 months ago
The first week of the college football season was not necessarily positive for either the Pittsburgh Panthers or the Akron Zips. While Pitt won, beating an FCS opponent, even a good one like Youngstown State, by only eight points wasn’t what the Panthers had in mind in way of style points. Worse, they lost running back James Conner, one of the best running backs in all of college...

North Carolina A&T Aggies vs. North Carolina Tar Heels Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 8 months ago
Being part of the opening Thursday night game of the FBS season gives you two extra days to think about the result. For North Carolina, that was not a good thing. The Tar Heels not only lost that game to South Carolina 17-13, they also failed to punch in a go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter after a first-and-goal at the Gamecocks' 9-yard line. Questions about...

Tulane Green Wave vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Preview and Prediction

By Justin Nails, 1 year 8 months ago
Tulane and Georgia Tech will play once again in week two for the second straight season in Atlanta.  Georgia Tech defeated Alcorn State 69-6 last Thursday in the Yellow Jackets' season opener. Georgia Tech totaled 553 total yards against the Braves with 476 yards coming on 52 rushing attempts. Tulane began their 2015 season with another ACC team in Duke. Although some thought the...

Houston Cougars vs. Louisville Cardinals Preview and Prediction

By Lloyd H. Spence Jr., 1 year 8 months ago
The Louisville Cardinals (0-1) went to Atlanta and sent a very clear message to the rest of the college football world. We are coming for you. Louisville, in a mistake filled game, pushed Auburn to its very limits and almost pulled off what would have been one of the biggest upsets of the opening weekend. After a horrendous first half filled with miscue after miscue, true...

Appalachian State Mountaineers vs. Clemson Tigers Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 8 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...

Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Virginia Cavaliers Preview and Prediction

By Elton Hayes, 1 year 8 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 8 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 8 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 8 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 8 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...
