Every Game Matters: How One Play Can Change the Entire Season

The motto of the BCS used to be “every game matters.” The meaning was plain and clear, whether or not you agreed with its assessment.

Ranking the college football bowl games: Which are the ones to watch?

College football has 40 scheduled FBS Bowl Games this year, with a National Championship Game to follow them all. Additionally, starting last year, ESPN put together a “HBCU National Championship” called the Celebration Bowl, to be contested between the champions of the two HBCU conferences. It’s not an FBS Bowl, though, so it won’t be ranked […]

At noon on Selection Sunday, the College Football Playoff selection committee will announce the four Playoff teams.

College Football Rooting Interests: Week 14

There is just one game left in the season, and there are true few scenarios left. In all honesty, only seven — maybe an eight, but we’ll get to that — schools have a real shot at the Playoff, and four of those are in the Big Ten. Alabama and Ohio State are locks. Clemson […]

Week 13 Big 12 Power Rankings

Texas has a new head coach. Bedlam will be a de factor conference championship game. West Virginia looks like a truly solid team, even if it hasn’t been proven over the course of this season because of a weak schedule. Sure, this was far from a banner year for the Big 12. In fact, until […]

College Football Rooting Interests: Week 13

Thanksgiving is an amazing day for football, though the professional variety rules the day. Aside from watching the Cowboys and/or Lions while enjoying family dinners, the best part about Thanksgiving for college football fans is knowing that the best regular-season weekend in college football starts the next day. Between Friday and Saturday, rivalry week is […]

What the CFP selection committee taught us: Week 12

The committee has been pretty inconsistent this season in how it adjusts its rankings from week to week. Two weeks ago, in its second rankings of the year, the committee went with chalk. Teams that lost dropped a few (inconsistent) places, while other teams just slid up to take those places. Last week, we saw […]
