SEC Football 2017 Predictions

By Steven Lassan, 2 weeks 3 days ago
The SEC had a down year in 2016. While Alabama made the CFB Playoff, every other team in the league finished the season with at least four losses. But that was 2016, and the outlook for the SEC in 2017 looks a little brighter. The Crimson Tide is once again the preseason favorite to win it all, with LSU and Auburn returning enough talent to rank as top 10-15 teams. It’s a tight battle at...

Kentucky Football: 2017 Wildcats Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 2 weeks 4 days ago
Kentucky finally ended an extended postseason drought and a second straight bowl invite could be in the offering this fall. Head coach Mark Stoops has the bulk of his offense returning and with improved quarterback play and a more reliable passing game, the Wildcats could be quite dangerous on that side of the ball. The defense is in pretty good shape at linebacker and in the secondary, but...

15 Biggest Wild Card College Football Teams in 2017

By Steven Lassan, 3 weeks 2 days 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, 1 month 23 hours 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...

Ranking the SEC's College Football Coaches for 2017

By Steven Lassan, 1 month 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...

By Athlon Sports, 1 month 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...

Ranking the SEC's Toughest College Football Schedules in 2017

By Cody McClure, 2 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, 2 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 (...
