By Nathan Rush, 3 days 9 hours ago
Archie Manning, 69, is certainly accomplished in his own right, but it’s impossible to ignore the achievements of his three sons — businessman and TV personality Cooper, 44, and Super Bowl-winning NFL quarterbacks Peyton, 42, and Eli, 37. We chased down the scrambling Ole Miss icon and New Orleans legend to talk football and family.   Influence on Peyton and Eli as QBs...

Ranking College Football's Top 25 Toughest Schedules for 2018

By Kyle Kensing, 6 days 12 hours ago
College football scheduling lacking complete uniformity is one of the sport's beautiful quirks, or a frustrating point of contention, depending on your perspective. The fact that teams within the same conference can play very different slates might not be ideal for determining the College Football Playoff, but it does contribute to the variety that differentiates college football from other...

Ranking the Toughest Games on Ole Miss Football's Schedule

By Elton Hayes, 1 week 11 hours ago
There won't be any tune-up for Ole Miss this season as the Rebels open the year in Houston against Texas Tech in an intriguing SEC vs. Big 12 matchup. This year's schedule features seven homes games, including contests against Alabama, Auburn, South Carolina and Mississippi State.   As interim head coach last year, Matt Luke guided Ole Miss to a 6-6 record amid less-than-ideal...

Ranking the SEC's College Football Coaches for 2018

By Steven Lassan, 1 week 2 days ago
Nick Saban is the unquestioned No. 1 coach in the SEC for 2018, but the league's depth at the top has improved since last season. Georgia's Kirby Smart makes a big jump to No. 3 after nearly guiding the program to a national title in his second year in Athens. Texas A&M landed Jimbo Fisher from Florida State this offseason, and Dan Mullen left Mississippi State to take over at...

Vanderbilt Football: 2018 Commodores Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 week 5 days ago
After a promising close to the 2016 season, Vanderbilt took a step back in 2017. The Commodores were outgained by 124.5 yards per game in league action and won only one SEC game. Senior QB Kyle Shurmur returns to lead the way after throwing for 26 TDs last year, but standout running back Ralph Webb and three of the top receivers have departed. Transfers Ke'Shawn Vaughn (running back) and...

The Most Shameful College Football Games of 2018

By John Coon, 1 week 6 days ago
Games matching FCS teams against FBS teams can serve a useful purpose. The big paychecks from FBS schools shore up the budget for FCS programs. Playing FBS schools also offers FCS teams a chance to put themselves on the college football map with an upset victory.   That doesn't mean all of these games make sense. Some are such bad mismatches on paper that the FBS opponent can...

Arkansas Football: 2018 Razorbacks Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 week 6 days ago
The Arkansas Razorbacks are a team in transition. Chad Morris' innovative offense and recruiting ties to the state of Texas should help the program move forward in the brutal SEC West. However, the switch from a pro-style offense to a spread will require an adjustment period. Arkansas left spring without a starter at quarterback, and a line that struggled in 2017 still has major question...

Ole Miss Football: 2018 Rebels Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 week 6 days ago
Matt Luke proved last year to be a capable head coach, coaxing six wins out of an Ole Miss team burdened by more than its share of off-the-field drama. Luke's job once again is to keep his team motivated without the carrot of a bowl game (barring a late reprieve from the NCAA). The offense, led by one of the nation's top groups of wide receivers, should score a bunch of points,...

Tennessee Football: 2018 Volunteers Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 week 6 days ago
Tennessee won nine games as recently as 2016, but getting to six victories would be a step in the right direction for new coach Jeremy Pruitt. The first-year coach inherits a team with major question marks on both sides of the ball, along with one of the SEC's toughest schedules. The defense struggled to stop the run and gave up 34.8 points per game in SEC play. Pruitt's background and...

5 Players on the 2019 College Football Hall of Fame Ballot Who Should Be Inducted

By Gabe Salgado, 2 weeks 11 hours ago
It's been said that the College Football Hall of Fame has equal or more meaning than the Pro Football Hall of Fame, especially since many college greats didn't exactly succeed in the pros. This week the National Football Foundation released a list of 76 players and six coaches from the FBS as well as 100 players and 32 coaches from the divisional ranks who are eligible to be...
