Auburn Tigers 2017 Football Schedule and Analysis

By Matt Fortuna, 1 week 2 days ago
Auburn has quite the challenge ahead of it this season. Yes, the Tigers made the Sugar Bowl last season and are expected to make another run at a New Year’s Six bowl in 2017, but the schedule has plenty of obstacles, from a  Week 2 trip to Clemson to a three-game road stretch against SEC West opponents. Oh, and there’s the Iron Bowl too.   Related: Ranking College...

LSU Tigers 2017 Football Schedule and Analysis

By Ryan Wright, 1 week 3 days ago
A new era has kicked off in Baton Rouge this spring with Ed Orgeron fully in command as LSU’s head coach, replacing Les Miles. Miles and his 114 career wins with the Tigers are gone, but there’s still plenty of talent remaining. Fans can expect the same hard-nosed defense under returning coordinator Dave Aranda but a long desired opening up of the offense has been promised with the...

Arkansas Razorbacks 2017 Football Schedule and Analysis

By Ryan Wright, 2 weeks 9 hours ago
The 2016 season for the Arkansas Razorbacks could be construed as a step back or a building block going forward, depending on one’s outlook. The Hogs went 7-6, but very easily could have wound up 9-4, which would have been impressive considering they reside in the SEC West. But all the breaks and bounces did not go their way, and instead head coach Bret Bielema, the staff and players are...

By Kyle Kensing, 2 weeks 1 day ago
Scheduling remains one of the most high-profile controversies surrounding college football, particularly in the new Playoff era. Like most college football controversies, it's not one the sport is likely to resolve any time soon, with anything resembling a consensus. The question for national title-aspiring programs remains: Do you schedule down in the non-conference and hope to pile...

Ranking the SEC's Toughest College Football Schedules in 2017

By Cody McClure, 2 weeks 2 days ago
As they say in the SEC, "It just means more." That is especially true in terms of scheduling, because in order for an SEC team to reach the College Football Playoff, it can't take a week off. Just about every team in the SEC is capable of beating a fellow conference foe on Saturday. We saw, for example, the cannibalization in 2016 when every SEC team besides Alabama ended up with...

Georgia Bulldogs 2017 Football Schedule and Analysis

By Matt Fortuna, 2 weeks 3 days ago
Georgia isn't pulling any punches in Kirby Smart's second year in Athens. The Bulldogs go on the road twice in their non-conference slate, a rarity among Power Five teams these days, as they are limited to six home games.   In addition to their annual end-of-season battle with rival Georgia Tech – which takes place in Atlanta this year – the Dawgs head to South Bend...

Ranking the SEC’s Toughest Non-Conference College Football Schedules in 2017

By Matt Fortuna, 3 weeks 1 day ago
The SEC takes all sorts of heat for its non-conference scheduling, and, frankly, this coming year probably won’t be much different.   Sure, there’s a Florida State here and a Clemson there, and there are those end-of-season ACC rivalries, but the SEC’s non-conference scheduling remains largely unfulfilling from a viewer’s perspective. After a 2016 to forget (...

Arkansas Razorbacks 2017 Spring Football Preview

By Ryan Wright, 4 weeks 1 day ago
Since the spring of 2012, Arkansas fans, the coaching staff, and players within the program have been on a roller-coaster ride unmatched in college football. After Bobby Petrino took the Razorbacks to the Sugar Bowl in 2011 with an 11-win campaign, the Hogs have gone just 29-34 with current head coach Bret Bielema posting a 25-26 mark during his four seasons in Fayetteville. Bielema has dangled...
