College Football’s Best Conference Is…

College football’s best conference has grown into perhaps the sport’s most ubiquitous debate over the last half-decade or so. I can’t pinpoint where the conversation started, nor will I try to assign blame to any one league for igniting it — though I will put responsibility squarely on SEC honks for perpetuating it to such […]


Thursday Night College Football ICYMI

In case you missed Thursday night’s college football — and, with the start of a new NFL season, you probably did — CFB Huddle’s ICYMI has you covered. The sole FBS game Thursday was a dandy, with Conference USA favorites Louisiana Tech and Western Kentucky going to the wire. The Hilltoppers led wire-to-wire, but had […]


College Football Saturday Week 1 Odds and Ends

Another season opener, another overtime thriller. This is getting to be old hat for Tulsa, which matched last year’s 38-31 double overtime defeat of Tulane with a 47-44 overtime win over FAU Saturday. Wide receiver Keevan Lucas was the hero a year ago with 13 receptions, three touchdowns and 233 yards. He was the hero […]


College Football Night 1 Odds and Ends

The first bit of college football history made in this 2015 season comes courtesy of quarterback Trey White.

Georgia State-Charlotte, #MACtion and The Quest for Exposure

America’s insatiable hunger for football is the demand. There’s no shortage of supply, with 128 programs in the Football Bowl Subdivision, and another 125 in the Championship Subdivision. However, finding distribution for the product — vis a vis, live-game telecasts — can bit a struggle. Even with more channels dedicated to sports than at any […]


Sept. 1 News: Sun Belt Expands with Coastal Carolina

So much for my bright idea of the winner of November’s Coastal Carolina-Liberty game earning a spot in the Sun Belt. While that remains a biggie for FCS purposes, likely serving as the de facto Big South Conference championship game, Coastal Carolina is bound for the Sun Belt regardless. Coastal Carolina will join Sun Belt […]


Aug. 30 News: College Football’s Best Defense

Boise State boasts the right combination of high-impact pass-rushers, run-pursuing ball-hawks and lock-down coverage men that the Broncos can claim college football’s best defense. And college football’s best defense has a pretty solid outlook for a perfect regular season, assuming it can carry Boise State to wins over Washington and BYU in Weeks 1 and […]


Vernon Adams As Starter Is Helfrich’s Aggressive Title Play

Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich wouldn’t name Vernon Adams the Ducks’ starting quarterback if the Eastern Washington transfer didn’t impress in just two weeks of practice. Likewise, Helfrich wouldn’t hand the reins of Oregon’s explosive offense to a one-year stand-in if the coach didn’t see national championship potential for the coming season. Vernon Adams’ competition […]
