Arkansas Football: 2017 Razorbacks Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 2 months 3 weeks ago
Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema is turning to former Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads to turn around a defense that got gashed repeatedly on the ground last season. Rhoads has some pieces to work with, especially in the secondary, but the unit as a whole is inexperienced and will be making the transition to a new scheme. On offense, quarterback Austin Allen returns but will be working with a...

15 Biggest Wild Card College Football Teams in 2017

By Steven Lassan, 2 months 3 weeks ago
Predictions for any FBS conference and all 130 college football teams are an inexact science. Some teams are just a bigger mystery than others or a hard program to get a read on for the upcoming year. Coaching changes, transfers, players returning from injury, scheme tweaks or just overall depth chart concerns make any preseason prediction difficult for a number of teams. While any FBS team...

SEC Football 2017 All-Conference Team

By Steven Lassan, 2 months 4 weeks ago
Alabama is Athlon’s pick to win it all in 2017, so it should be no surprise the Crimson Tide dominate the All-SEC selections. Nick Saban’s team features 15 players on Athlon’s All-SEC squad for 2017, including 10 on the first team. Florida checks in second among SEC teams with 13 picks, while Auburn and Georgia are tied for third with 10 selections.   Athlon Sports has...

SEC's Best Quarterback Matchups of 2017

By Bryan Fischer, 3 months 4 days ago
It goes without saying that you need a good quarterback in order to be a successful college football team. While it may not wholly determine a team’s success each season if they have a quality signal-caller behind center, one doesn’t become a consistent winner without a quarterback making all the throws and executing the right decisions on offense.   That’s why the...

Ranking the SEC's College Football Coaches for 2017

By Steven Lassan, 3 months 1 week ago
Nick Saban is once again the unquestioned No. 1 coach in the SEC, but the debate begins at No. 2. Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen, Florida’s Jim McElwain and Auburn’s Gus Malzahn each have a case to earn the No. 2 spot, with Arkansas’ Bret Bielema, Ole Miss’ Hugh Freeze and Tennessee’s Butch Jones rounding out the next tier of options. As evidenced by the names...

Top 25 SEC 2018 NFL Draft Prospects to Watch

By Cody McClure, 3 months 2 weeks ago
The SEC was well-represented in the 2017 NFL Draft, once again finishing as college football’s top conference in terms of talent sent to the next level. The SEC had 53 total draft picks and easily outpaced the ACC, which was second with 43.   Now we turn our attention to the SEC’s top prospects for the 2018 NFL Draft because it’s never too early, right? Per usual, the...

Early 2018 NFL Draft Prospect Top 50 Rankings

By Athlon Sports, 3 months 3 weeks ago
With the 2017 NFL Draft in the books, it's time to take an early look at 2018 and some of the top prospects on the radar for pro scouts. Although USC quarterback Sam Darnold has just 10 career starts, the sophomore ranks as the No. 1 player in the early rankings. Darnold provided a spark for the Trojans last season and is a big reason why coach Clay Helton's team is a contender for the...

Arkansas Razorbacks 2017 Football Schedule and Analysis

By Ryan Wright, 4 months 1 week 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...

Ranking the SEC's Toughest College Football Schedules in 2017

By Cody McClure, 4 months 1 week 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...

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

By Matt Fortuna, 4 months 2 weeks 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 (...
