Best Worst Game Of The Week: Rutgers v. Illinois

Another week, another pick I messed up. I wasn’t convinced Middle Tennessee State could overcome their turnover issue last week, and I was wrong. They took down Florida International by a score of 37-17, not turning the ball over once. Let’s try this again. Our Best Worst Game Of The Week this week is a…

SEC Week 6 Recap

It was a busy and exciting week for SEC football. I know it’s hard to keep up with how all of the teams did – I’d be lying if I said I sat down and watched every single game – but I’ll try and give a brief synopsis of each team’s performance from the previous…

Is Khalil Tate a One Hit Wonder? A Week 7 PAC-12 Preview

This week, all twelve PAC-12 teams are in action playing conference games. Last week’s games had some surprising outcomes; more specifically, the game between Utah and Stanford. Utah was ranked 20th heading in, but had a hard time finding the endzone. Stanford’s offense still looked horrendous outside of Bryce Love, but he can’t carry them…

Just How Legit is North Carolina State?

For the first six weeks of the college football season, no team has been as been a bigger surprise than North Carolina State. The Wolfpack sit at 5-1, and have gone into Doak Campbell and beaten Florida State, which is still impressive, as going into Tallahassee and getting a victory is one of the toughest…

Winners and Losers of AAC’s Week Six Action

The battle atop the American Conference standings is getting good, three undefeated teams remain, all of which are ranked. South Florida is ranked 18th, Central Florida is ranked 22nd and Navy is ranked 25th. Although, it was a successful week for these three teams along with many other teams in the AAC, there were some…

What’s Wrong with LSU?

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably heard by now that LSU lost to Troy last week by a final score of 24-21. As if that wasn’t demoralizing enough, they paid Troy almost $1,000,000 to visit LSU on homecoming night for that game. With this being their second loss in three weeks – they…

Previewing the Battle for the Florida Cup- Florida State vs. Miami

I know, I’ve already written about the Hurricanes this week, but there’s no other notable game this weekend in the ACC (maybe Steve Addazio’s last game as a head coach in Chestnut Hill). This is also a gigantic rivalry game that dates back to 1951. Through the first 61 editions of the Florida Cup, Miami…

FBS Independents Week 6 Thoughts

The FBS Independents went 2-2 last week. On the winning side was Notre Dame, who absolutely killed Miami by a score of 52-17, and Army, who beat UTEP by two touchdowns (35-21). At this point, these are the only two respectable teams in this ‘conference’, and the only two with a shot at a bowl…

So… Who’s Ian Book?

Well, this is something. Notre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush has spent most of the week in a walking boot after injuring his foot in last Saturday’s win against Miami (OH). While testing showed no structural damage of any kind, Brian Kelly won’t go ahead and name him the starter definitively for this Saturday’s game against 1-4 UNC. If…

Which Undefeated American Team Will Fall First?

Going into Week Six of American action, three teams remain undefeated and atop the conference rankings. Those three teams are the South Florida Bulls, the Central Florida Knights and the Navy Midshipmen. While the Bulls and Knights find themselves ranked at 18th and 25th respectively, the Midshipmen are still a few weeks away from being…
