We are now midway through this year’s college football season, and this weekend’s games should provide considerable clarity on the matter of who may be going bowling. In the ACC, the No. 8 Miami Hurricanes are hosting the Syracuse Orange, fresh off of last week’s upset over Clemson. The Big Ten features the No. 19 […]

This weekend of college football has gotten off to an inauspicious start if you’re a Clemson or Washington State fan.  On Friday night, the Syracuse Orange edged the No. 2 Clemson Tigers 27-24, and the No. 8 Washington State Cougars got blown out by the California Bears by a score of 37-3. For today, some […]

In the Big 12, the No. 23 West Virginia Mountaineers will try to pull of a similar surprise on the road against the No. […]

This weekend started off with a bang as the No. 16 Washington State Cougars upset the No. 5 USC Trojans on Friday night, 30-27. I’m hoping my Texas Tech Red Raiders can work some similar upset magic when they take on the No. 15 Oklahoma State Cowboys at home in Lubbock this Saturday evening. Preview […]

Well, my favorite time of year has arrived: college football season. This Labor Day weekend, pigskins will fly and pom-poms will shake. As beautiful as the Texas Hill Country is, the high plains of West Texas are where I’d dearly love to be right now. Alas, I will have to settle for watching my alma […]

This week brings us to the end of the 2015 regular season for college football.  This particular day in the season has come to be known as Championship Saturday because it features four conference championship games from four of the Power Five conferences: the ACC, Big Ten, Pac-12, and SEC.  The Big 12 used to […]

This week features an early-edition college football open thread because my Texas Tech Red Raiders are facing off against the Texas Longhorns in Austin this Thanksgiving evening. It’s been seven years since the Raiders last beat the Horns on an epic catch by Michael Crabtree, arguably the signature win of the Mike Leach era: Preview Open

For the second week in a row, I’m running late with my college football post.  Anyway, here are a few games of interest this weekend. In the Big Ten, the No. 12 Michigan Wolverines are leading the Penn State Nittany Lions 21-16 midway through the fourth quarter.  Later today, the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes […]

Due to the furor caused by the recent depredations committed in Gay Paree by the violent, insane adherents of the “Religion of Peace,” I got distracted and forgot to post my usual college football thread early this morning.  Here it is. In the Big Ten, the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes are leading the Illinois […]

We are now two-and-a-half months into the season, and on this Veterans Day weekend a number of key games should bring some clarity to the playoff picture. What might well be this weekend’s biggest matchup is in the Atlantic Coast Conference, where the No. 16 Florida State Seminoles face a difficult game on the road against […]

Most of this week’s college football games will be played on Halloween, and more than a few should offer a good fright to viewers.  Out west, Mike Leach and the Washington State Cougars take on the visiting No. 8 Stanford Cardinal in what has become an unlikely battle for Pac-12 North supremacy.  Y’all know who […]

Disaster.  That’s the only word that can adequately describe the results of Texas Tech’s 63-35 beatdown last week at the hands of Baylor.  This week, the Red Raiders are hoping for some redemption as they host the Iowa State Cyclones, traditionally one of the weaker teams in the Big 12 Conference.  But given Texas Tech’s […]

Well, I won’t mince words: last week sucked.  My Texas Tech Red Raiders lost a 55-52 heartbreaker at home in Lubbock to the TCU Horned Frogs, the final score coming on a luckily-tipped pass.  The officiating was lousy (though in retrospect, not determinative of the game’s final outcome), something that has become a hallmark of […]

The fourth week of the college football season is now upon us, and at noon (Eastern) today on ABC is a fascinating matchup featuring the No. 22 BYU Cougars heading to Ann Arbor to face Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines.  The Cougars are seeking to bounce back from last week’s heartbreaking loss on the road […]

College football, that is.  Nine months after a national champion was crowned, with new student-athletes recruited in the interim and coaching changes galore, the 2015 college football season is finally upon us.  Fans of the sport, filled with the optimism of a new season, will watch their teams take the field, rooting for them as […]
