10 Amazing College Football Stats from Week 2

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 10 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...

Tennessee Coach Butch Jones Tells Oklahoma LB Eric Striker to "Have Some Damn Class"

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 10 months ago
Oklahoma staged a furious second-half rally against Tennessee on Saturday, as the Sooners defeated the Volunteers 31-24 in Knoxville. But the on-field action wasn't the only part of Saturday's game that was noteworthy. Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker is one of the Sooners’ top defenders and attracted plenty of interest from Tennessee and coach Butch Jones for his comments...

Rice Owls vs. Texas Longhorns Preview and Prediction

By Lloyd H. Spence Jr., 1 year 10 months ago
Texas (0-1) is in trouble after just one game. It wasn't because the Longhorns were beaten by Notre Dame. It was the WAY they were beaten by Notre Dame. They were thoroughly dominated by the Irish in every phase of the game. There were many problems last Saturday. There were many mistakes made last Saturday. There were many missed opportunities last Saturday. There were glaring...

Tennessee and Oklahoma meet in Knoxville on Saturday evening for an intriguing Week 2 non-conference matchup, with this game also serving as a good barometer test for two programs looking to get back on track. Oklahoma was expected to be a playoff contender in 2014, but the Sooners slipped to 8-5. Bob Stoops wasted no time addressing his team's biggest problems, revamping his coaching staff...

Week 2 College Football Picks Against the Spread

By Braden Gall, 1 year 10 months ago
If not for a 100-yard kickoff return from Western Michigan and two garbage time touchdowns from Louisville, I would have gone a nice 4-0 last week. But almost doesn't count with your bookie. This week, the advice is to stay away from the big games. Oklahoma-Tennessee could go over, under, blowout or overtime. Michigan State is the slight favorite and the pick against Oregon, but nothing...

Lamar Cardinals vs. Baylor Bears Game Preview and Prediction

By Jeremy Simon, 1 year 10 months ago
Both teams started the season with impressive wins last week beating their opponents by a combined score of 122-24. Baylor's defense showed some weaknesses in the first half against SMU before shutting them down in the third and fourth quarters. Any of those weaknesses will probably disappear as Baylor returns both Shawn Oakman and Orion Stewart from suspension. Lamar was able...
