Outrageous College Football Predictions for Week 4

By J.P. Scott, 1 year 3 months ago
Week 3 of the 2016 college football season certainly had its share out outrageousness. We had the five-time defending FCS champion taking down Iowa in Iowa City, Ohio State beating Oklahoma in Norman by three touchdowns and Louisville obliterating the then-No. 2-ranked Florida State (which I said would happen in last week's predictions).   Well, fans — strap in for another...

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 3 months ago
College football’s Week 4 slate kicks off on Thursday night with an ACC showdown between Clemson and Georgia Tech. The Tigers have a huge showdown against Louisville next Saturday, but coach Dabo Swinney’s team can’t overlook the Yellow Jackets after losing five straight road matchups in this series. Friday’s schedule features three matchups, including TCU at SMU and USC...

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 3 months ago
The 2016 college football season is only three weeks old. However, it’s never too early to look back at the preseason rankings and identify a few teams that have impressed or are poised to easily exceed projections. Louisville has emerged as a playoff contender after soundly defeating Florida State last week, while Nebraska, Utah, Texas A&M and Texas have each scored key wins through...

Week 3 featured several high-profile matchups, but the big winners on Saturday were Louisville, Alabama and Ohio State. The Cardinals dominated Florida State to take a huge step forward in the ACC title race, while Alabama knocked off Ole Miss to end a two-game losing streak to the Rebels. A revamped and reloaded Buckeye team with several new stars emerging handled Oklahoma in Norman.  ...

College Football Poll Watch: Voters Propping Up Oklahoma, Miami Keeps Climbing

By J.P. Scott, 1 year 4 months ago
After another crazy weekend of college football, we knew there would be some shakeup in the AP Top 25 Poll. Louisville rocketed to No. 3, and deservedly so. The Cardinals' blowout win over Florida State was nothing short of impressive, boosting the Cardinals into the national title conversation and quarterback Lamar Jackson to the front of the Heisman race.   Additionally, we saw...

Seven-Step Drop: Is the rest of 2016 just a prelude for Nick Saban-Urban Meyer V?

By Bryan Fischer, 1 year 4 months ago
As the final minutes of Ohio State’s romp over Oklahoma ticked by and thoughts turned to what the college football universe looked like after Week 3, one couldn’t help but wonder why the television networks and marketers hadn’t trumpeted up the fact that, in more ways than one, this should have been billed as ‘Separation Saturday.’   The Buckeyes, even as...

Texas Longhorns vs. California Golden Bears Preview and Prediction

By Josh Webb, 1 year 4 months ago
Cal always knew that 2016 was going to be a retooling year in many different forms. There’s the obvious loss of Jared Goff’s “it” factor, but the Golden Bears also are reconstructing their defense and breaking in a new offensive coordinator and a host of inexperienced skill position players. It’s not so much one huge thing as a bunch of medium-sized things that...

Louisiana Tech Bulldogs vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders Preview and Prediction

By Nicholas Ian Allen, 1 year 4 months ago
Louisiana Tech and Texas Tech enter Saturday’s non-conference matchup in Lubbock with identical 1-1 records. Both squads produced big wins over FCS competition and lost hard-fought contests against quality Power Five opponents. Las Vegas oddsmakers set the scoring total for the game at 81 — the highest of any Week 3 contest — meaning a shootout is expected.  ...

Oklahoma Sooners vs. Ohio State Buckeyes Preview and Prediction

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 4 months ago
Ohio State and Oklahoma are two of college football’s top programs and meet on Saturday night for one of the most anticipated non-conference games of 2016. Just how big of a matchup is this game on Saturday night? Outside of the impact on the 2016 national title races (or even the early Heisman discussion), these two teams have combined for 12 Associated Press national titles, 12 Heisman...

Baylor Bears vs. Rice Owls Game Preview and Prediction

By Jeremy Simon, 1 year 4 months ago
Friday night will mark the end of an uneventful non-conference slate for the Baylor Bears. Winning their first two contests by an average of 37.5 points per game has left many still waiting to see what the 2016 Bears truly have to offer. Unfortunately this weekend will not be very telling.   The Rice Owls have started the season 0-2 despite hanging with Army last weekend before ultimately...
