Florida State Football: Stock Report at Halfway Point of 2014 Season

The road has been bumpy, full of potholes and speed bumps. There were injuries and suspensions and plenty of close calls. But the Florida State football team is 6-0 at the season's halfway point, a team whose stock continues to rise with a 22-game winning streak. FSU's road to repeating as national champions was nearly derailed a few times. In the Seminoles' first three games against Football Bowl Subdivision opponents, FSU was on the ropes and ...

How Auburn Can Get Back in the College Football Playoff Hunt

STARKVILLE, Miss. — The Auburn Tigers have read this script before. They knew what it felt like to fall behind 21-0 on the road against an extremely tough SEC West opponent. They knew what it felt like to turn the ball on their first two drives of the game. Hey, they even knew what it felt like to try and orchestrate a rousing comeback in the pouring rain. But, just like in the loss last season to LSU in ...

UCLA Football: 4 Startling Statistics Through 5 Weeks

Sitting at 4-1, the No. 18 UCLA Bruins football team has been plagued by four statistical categories.  Two of these specific deficiencies deal with the defense as a whole. To be frank, the unit has underperformed considerably. Defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich's group needs immense improvement, should the Bruins still have aspirations of competing for a BCS bowl bid.   The most startling statistic involves the beleaguered offensive line. Should this trend continue, starting quarterback Brett Hundley will ...

Arizona State Beats USC 38-34 on Last-Second Hail Mary

For the second time this season, a Pac-12 matchup was decided on a final-second Hail Mary touchdown pass. This time, it was Arizona State coming out on top of USC, 38-34.  ASU quarterback Mike Bercovici heaved the ball toward the end zone, but it was wide receiver Jalen Strong who did the work. Strong, who finished with 10 catches for 202 yards and three TDs, was allowed to walk into the end zone on the final play.  As you might ...

Ted’s Takes: The Pac-12′s New Superstar QB, Arizona-Oregon Prediction and More

The producer's voice was strong: "We need to record billboards." Give me just a minute. Then came the next surge: "We need to rehearse." Hang on. Let me watch this play. "Come on. We have to go. Now." Problem was, every time I looked at my iPad, Jared Goff was making a terrific throw, leading Cal down the stretch of a crazy, entertaining game against Colorado. I was in Salt Lake City, and the Washington State-Utah game ...

Tennessee Football: Game-by-Game Predictions for the Month of October

The Tennessee Volunteers turned in an impressive performance in Athens against the No. 13 Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday, and it's clear that the team is rapidly improving with each game. That progress will need to continue if head coach Butch Jones wants his team to escape the month of October with a 2-2 or better record. Last year's contest against Georgia in Knoxville was close, but the Bulldogs were significantly banged up and missing several key ...

UCLA Football: Game-by-Game Predictions for Month of October

The month of October is a big one for Jim Mora and the No. 8 UCLA Bruins.  A home matchup versus a stingy Utah team precedes a monumental clash against the Oregon Ducks at the Rose Bowl. Should the Bruins and Ducks remain undefeated, it could be potentially the biggest game of the college football season to date. UCLA will then take to the road—facing a suddenly dangerous Cal team and an improving Colorado squad. This piece ...

Why Tennessee Will Stop Its Nine-Year Losing Streak to Florida

Tennessee is going to beat Florida on Saturday. Finally. The last time that actually happened—not just boasted about by optimistic Volunteers fans—was in 2004. That season, UT kicker James Wilhoit booted a 50-yard field goal to beat UF 30-28 in Neyland Stadium after missing an extra point. To put into perspective how long it's been, that was three years before the first iPhone hit the shelves. Facebook had been online for seven months. George W. Bush had not ...
