When we last left off, the CFB Huddle Bowl Preview Bonanza dangled from thr proverbial cliff. Part IV began with the first of the four-game Tuesday slate, but ended there. Thatâ€™s because the Armed Forces Bowl marks the exact midway point of the bowl season, thus making for a natural time to take an intermission. […]

I love this sport. It never ceases to amaze me how just about every Saturday in the fall, Iâ€™m left incredulous by at least one moment, game or performance. So much of the residual activity surrounding college football is exhausting. Some NCAA regulations are archaic, the modern concept of amateurism evolves at a glacial pace […]
A month of the 2015 campaign is complete, and it went by faster than a Leonard Fournette touchdown run. College footballâ€™s season is the shortest of any major sportâ€™s, and Septemberâ€™s end is a harsh reminder. Weâ€™re now a third through the season, when it seems just yesterday Montana and North Dakota State were just […]
The eyes of the college football-watching nation turn to the West in Week 4, as the Pac-12 is home to some of Saturdayâ€™s premier matchups. Frankly, the Week 4 Saturday Six-Pack could have been more than half Pac-12 games. Arizona-UCLA garnered the spotlight as the College Gameday contest, with Oregon and Utah in the same […]
Upsets become epidemics in college football. Every few weeks each season, thereâ€™s an Upset Saturday. Week 3 provided the 2015 seasonâ€™s first. A pair of Top 10 teams lost, top-ranked defending champion Ohio State narrowly escaped a stiff challenge from Northern Illinois and a host of games either came down to the final possession or […]

Measures for success vary between programs. While nothing less than a conference championship and potential berth in the College Football Playoff will suffice for the gameâ€™s upper echelon, reaching a bowl game is a major milestone for a much larger section of the college football landscape. Each Power Five conference has at least one program […]
TMZ first reported Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested Monday for assault with a deadly weapon. UCLA athletics released an official statement that sheds some light on TMZâ€™s report Diddy physically went after a Bruins coach when his son, walk-on defensive back Justin Combs, was yelled at.

No season in the 15 years of the Bowl Championship Series become more of a tangled mess than 2008. Controversy was inherent with the BCS, which is why the College Football Playoff now exists — and, in fact, the College Football Playoff largely owes its existence to the 2008 BCS debacle. The push for postseason […]
FCS upsets of FBS opponents contribute to the annual drama that is college football season. FCS upsets of Power Five Conference foes are especially exciting.

In seasons since, Jacksonville State has taken down Ole […]
Your brain could probably stand a break from college basketball for a moment. What better way to exhale from March Madness than reading on the triple-option, Shawn Oakman, breakout Pac-12 players and more? Oh, so much more, in fact. Friday Q&A is picking up momentum in its third week. Yes, I know how much most […]
Thereâ€™s a lot of football left to be played, but Texas Tech will be hard-pressed to reach a lower point than its 82-27 loss Saturday at TCU.
