By Aaron Tallent, 6 months 1 week ago
Clemson’s overtime win at home this past Saturday over an NC State team that was outmatched on paper may be causing some worries in Death Valley. However, forgive the cliché, the college football season is a marathon, not a sprint.   Many eventual national champions have survived close games prior to winning the title against teams they should have probably blown out.

Iowa State Cyclones vs. Texas Longhorns Preview and Prediction

By Allen Kenney, 6 months 2 weeks ago
The low point of Charlie Strong's tenure at Texas probably came last year when Iowa State blanked his Longhorns, 24-0.

Presumably, his players understand that. That should motivate the 'Horns on Saturday....
