Kansas State Wildcats 2015 Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 10 months ago
As long as Bill Snyder is the head coach in Manhattan, Kansas State will always be a contender in the Big 12. After another nine-win season last year — Snyder's 13th with the Wildcats — KSU enters the '15 season with some big holes to plug. Kansas State needs to find a leader at quarterback, replace stars at wide receiver and fill major voids in the front seven...

Texas Tech Red Raiders 2015 Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 10 months ago
Kliff Kingsbury has had an interesting two-year start to his head-coaching career at Texas Tech. Year One featured big offensive numbers and an impressive postseason victory over Arizona State. Year Two featured another undisciplined team, seven Big 12 losses and no postseason. Kingsbury has plenty of talent, both as a coach and on his depth chart, but has to correct his team’s sloppy play...

College Football's Top 25 Offensive Triplets for 2015

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 10 months ago
Quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers are glamour positions in college football. While offensive linemen and defensive players are just as important to winning a title, it’s no secret the skill players and quarterbacks grab the attention and headlines. With that in mind, Athlon has ranked the top 25 triplets in college football for the 2015 season. How did we compile the...

Oklahoma State Cowboys 2015 Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 10 months ago
Oklahoma State stumbled through its worst season since 2007, finishing 7-6 for the first season with fewer than eight wins since Mike Gundy’s second season. The Cowboys entered the season knowing they were in store for a rebuilding season. The Cowboys enter this season hoping that rebuilding is well on its way to being complete. At least at quarterback — always a position of interest...

West Virginia Mountaineers 2015 Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 10 months ago
West Virginia will have a new starting quarterback, an unproven offensive line and untested receiving corps in 2015. Even then, the question seems to be around the defense. Dana Holgorsen’s offense seems to be all but automatic these days, so the defense — which ranked 60th or worse in the four major categories — is the biggest X-factor in West Virginia’s ceiling in the...

Texas Longhorns 2015 Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 10 months ago
The first year of Charlie Strong’s tenure ended in essence where it started. In the second game of the season, Texas lost 41-7 to BYU. The Longhorns finished with an offensively inept 31-7 loss to Arkansas in a bowl game. That, of course, is not even close to good enough for Texas. Yet despite these low points, Texas managed to win three of its last four regular season games and finish 5-4...

Art Briles has transformed Baylor into an annual Big 12 title contender, and the Bears are Athlon Sports’ pick to win the conference title and play in college football’s four-team playoff. Seth Russell is the next in line at quarterback in Waco, and the supporting cast is among the best in the nation with a deep receiving corps and solid offensive line. The defense should improve...

Don't listen to Nick Saban, the Bowl System is just fine

By Braden Gall, 1 year 10 months ago
Don’t buy it. Don’t buy what Bill Hancock is selling. Don’t buy what the conference commissioners are selling. Certainly, don’t buy what Nick Saban is selling. The Alabama Crimson Tide head coach has built up more than enough equity during his amazing career to have intelligent and respected opinions about his game. But his latest comments about the...

West Virginia Making a Run at Becoming the New WR U

By Jeremy Simon, 1 year 10 months ago
Trends take time to develop and there is no arguing that over the last 20 years schools such as Miami, Ohio State, and Florida State have rightfully earned the moniker Wide Receiver University. But trends change over time and it looks as though recent history is showing there is a new player vying for the title, West Virginia University. Over the last three NFL drafts (2013-15) West...
