LWOS College Football Week 9 Top 25

|

Ohio State stays at the top of our rankings, with the JT Barrett news making next week a potential tough game against Minnesota. Five different teams received a first-place vote, though, as Baylor’s support slipped a little. We still haven’t seen what they can do without Seth Russell, nor have we seen what they can […] READ MORE


Pac 12 Breakdown: Shifting Landscape

|

Utah (6-1, 3-1) bowed to USC (4-3, 2-2) at the Coliseum, but the Utes still control the South. Meanwhile, will the Trojans’ fuel from that impressive 42-24 conquest last week down the home stretch? Will Stanford’s roll end in a once unlikely pit called Pullman? The Cardinal (6-1, 5-0) look like the clear favorite in the […] READ MORE


DK’s 2015 Week 8 CFB Game Picks

|

Last week was slightly better than the season average, at 7-3. Would’ve been 8-2, were it not for the wacky ending at the Big House. Thanks, Michigan Punter! Thanks, Obama! Anyway, this week isn’t quite as spicy as last week, slate-wise, but as my erudite colleague Tony Siracusa points out here, this week’s games matter, […] READ MORE


Beating the Spread: Defense Will Decide the College Football Playoff

|

The college football season has reached the halfway point, and roughly the top half of the current top 25 ranked teams will shoot it out. Heavyweight conference games, rivalries, and conference championships will sort out the Final Four of the college football playoff. Offense, specifically the success of the spread offense, continues to dazzle the […] READ MORE



Week 7 CFP Implications: Michigan State is a Winning Enigma

|

Last year, the CFP selection committee gave us their highly-subjective and never-quite-explained “game control” way of deciding how to rank teams. We have no idea if or how that will continue this year. Also, we don’t know exactly what it means. Sometimes, game control just seemed to be a way to say “margin of victory” […] READ MORE


LWOS College Football Week 7 Top 25

|

The Ohio State Buckeyes are back at #1. Maybe it’s because Utah struggled a bit against Arizona State, maybe it’s because the Buckeyes finally looked consistent on offense once JT Barrett took the quarterback spot back, or maybe it’s a combination of both. Whatever the reason, the Buckeyes barely jumped the Utes to get back […] READ MORE


DK’s 2015 Week 7 CFB Game Picks

|

Last week was better. Much better. There is a tasty slate of right-in-the-thick-of-it conference race games this weekend, too. Saturday will have some great matchups, but there is at least one fantastic Thursday night game out west this week. Let’s break ‘em down. All game times in Eastern Daylight Time. Last Week: 8-2 (.800) Season: […] READ MORE



LWOS College Football Week 6 Top 25

|

Our new Top 25 is in and we once again have a new #1! The Buckeyes lost the top billing to Michigan State after their Week 3 scare against Northern Illinois, but earned that spot back when the Spartans also stopped impressing. Now, though, the Utah Utes have pushed themselves solidly into that top spot […] READ MORE
