By J.P. Scott, 12 months 19 hours ago
Nebraska will host Purdue on Saturday in a tale of two seasons. Things could not have gone any better than they did for the Cornhuskers during the first half of the 2016 campaign.

By Mike Bainbridge, 12 months 19 hours ago
There may not be a more rested team in the entire country heading into this weekend than the Michigan Wolverines (6-0) as they get set to take on Illinois (2-4) at the Big House.   Yes, it was just a typical bye week for the Maize and Blue, but the starters had additional time to catch their breath as they sat out basically all of the second half the week prior during their 78-0 trouncing...

Wisconsin Badgers vs. Iowa Hawkeyes Preview and Prediction

By J.P. Scott, 12 months 2 days ago
Iowa and Wisconsin are probably the closest thing there is to twins in college football.

Outrageous College Football Predictions for Week 8

By J.P. Scott, 12 months 2 days ago
This has been one of the most exciting and entertaining college football seasons in recent memory — and that’s even with what looks to be a runaway freight train in Alabama leading the pack. It may be tough to picture anyone beating the Crimson Tide right now, but the road to the College Football Playoff still looks like more of a roller coaster at this point — and I’m...
