Oregon Ducks vs. Utah Utes Preview and Prediction

By John Coon, 5 months 1 week ago
Utah and Oregon have taken much different paths since the two teams played a season ago. The Utes have quietly established themselves as a legitimate Pac-12 South title contender. The Ducks, on the other hand, are no longer soaring above the Pac-12 North.   When Utah hosts Oregon on Saturday, the stakes are much higher for the No. 12 Utes than a year ago. Utah (8-2, 5-2 Pac-12) needs a...

A potential preview of the Pac-12 Championship is on tap this Saturday, as Washington State and Colorado meet in Boulder for one of the top matchups in Week 11. With two weeks remaining until the Pac-12 Championship, there’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding both divisions in the Pac-12. Colorado (6-1) holds a slight edge over USC (5-2) and Utah (5-2) in the South. However, the Buffaloes...

By Bryan Fischer, 5 months 1 week ago
There have been some stellar matchups throughout the college football season but we’re entering the home stretch for many conference title races around the country so this week’s action might mean just a little bit more between the lines. While there are a ton of interesting games from coast-to-coast between the names on the front of the jerseys, it’s the one-on-ones between...

Predictions for Every College Football Game in Week 12

By Steven Lassan, 5 months 1 week ago
College football’s Week 12 slate begins with two MAC games on Tuesday and two more on Wednesday night, followed by an intriguing showdown between Louisville and Houston on Thursday night. This game was one of the most anticipated weeknight games back in the preseason but has lost some of its appeal due to Houston’s two losses. In addition to Louisville-Houston, Arkansas State at Troy...

College Football Poll Watch: Louisville is Sitting Pretty, Western Michigan Gets No Love

By J.P. Scott, 5 months 1 week ago
The third edition of the 2016 College Football Playoff rankings were released on Tuesday night. As I mentioned earlier in the week, this whole process is a mess — largely because there is no set roadmap in terms of how to get to the playoff. What we saw on Tuesday night only reinforced that.   Here is what stuck out to me in both the College Football Playoff rankings and the other...

By Steven Lassan, 5 months 1 week ago
Week 11 provided its share of upsets for the 2016 college football season. Clemson, Michigan and Washington were knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten, while Auburn and Texas A&M – two of the selection committee’s top-10 teams – were also defeated in SEC play last Saturday.   Now that the dust has settled from Week 11, it’s time to pick up the pieces and...

Seven-Step Drop: Whacky College Football Playoff Scenarios Now in Play

By Bryan Fischer, 5 months 1 week ago
Entering Week 11, it appeared we were barreling toward the most drama-free postseason final four in the young College Football Playoff’s history. Much of the same was expected from a relatively ho-hum slate of games.   Three of the top four were at home and only one was playing a ranked (and three-loss) team. The other member of the group was on the road against a lackluster team...

The College Football Playoff Process is a Flaming Mess of Uncertainty

By J.P. Scott, 5 months 1 week ago
Oh, what a fine mess we have on our hands — and I'm loving every minute of it. I'm the guy who likes to pull up a tattered old lawn chair, light a cheap cigar, drink bottom-shelf whiskey straight out of a plastic bottle and watch the world burn. I love when what people thought were master plans fail. The chaos excites me. It's what gets me out of bed in the morning.  ...

Winter is Coming for College Football’s Four-Team Playoff

By Jim Weber, 5 months 1 week ago
As we approach Thanksgiving and the end of the college football regular season, it’s clear that winter is not just literally coming — it’s also metaphorically approaching for the four-team College Football Playoff system with more doom in the air than “Game of Thrones.”   Let me preface the rest of this column by saying I don’t think an eight-...
