    It looks like 2020 will be the year of upsets in college football. On Saturday, we watched Kansas State upset Oklahoma and we watched Mississippi State pull off the biggest upset of the year when they beat LSU by 10. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) We’ve also seen smaller upsets around the college football landscape. It begs the question: is this the year of upsets? For those of you who don’t remember, I’ve been arguing for months that this college football season would be nonstop chaos. Why? It’s really simple. Teams have had unusual practice schedules, there are a ton of distractions and home field advantage no longer exists with fans restricted. You...

    Oklahoma football can still make the College Football Playoff, here’s how. The College Football Playoff is still possible for Oklahoma football, if you can believe it. For the second season in a row, the Oklahoma Sooners have lost to Chris Klieman’s Kansas State Wildcats in Big 12 play. Falling at home 38-35 vs. a K-State team that was 0-1 coming into play is not ideal for Boomer Sooner Nation, but there is still a chance this college football blue-blood can reach the College Football Playoff.

    College football has already seen more than enough twists and turns in its 2020 season, and more than half of the teams haven’t even played yet. This season — which is being played amid the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States — has come with conferences opting out. and then back in. When the Big Ten and Pac-12 rejoined the season, it queued up an endless argument that started when the College Football Playoff was instituted in 2014: Should the four-team playoff expand to eight teams? There have been countless eight-team plans pitched since. But would one of those fit, given the fluid nature of the 2020 season? After all, the Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC all went to...

    The college football Week 4 schedule provides some intriguing matchups, with the SEC’s best finally getting started. However, some of the best matchups are elsewhere. The college football schedule gets a little bit better this weekend, with the SEC finally getting started, and while it will be nice to see the likes of Georgia, Florida, and Alabama gracing television screens again, the conference’s elite teams are positioned to roll in Week 1. No. 8 Auburn and No. 23 Kentucky should provide a good game, but no dedicated fans are overlooking that matchup. With those teams, as well as No. 3 Oklahoma, headlining the week, it may be easy to overlook some of the best potential games on the weekend slate.No....

    The Florida State Seminoles and Miami Hurricanes square off this Saturday but the rivalry game doesn’t have the same cache as it did in the 80s and 90s during their heyday. The rivalry between Florida State and Miami used to be one of the best in all of college football. It was at its peak in the late 1980s and early 1990s with one of the biggest games coming in 1987 when both were ranked in the top four and vying for a national championship. The Hurricanes are 11-point favorites over the Seminoles and will likely have another pretty big victory over their in-state foes. While the rivalry will always be a rivalry, it just doesn’t have the same feel anymore,...
    Georgia football needs D’Wan Mathis or JT Daniels to have a big year to win the SEC.Georgia football can win a national title, but that dream hinges entirely on quarterback play. The Georgia Bulldogs thought they had that answer solved when they landed graduate transfer Jamie Newman over from Wake Forest University. Kirby Smart and his staff believed they were getting some combination of Jalen Hurts and Cam Newton in Newman. Unfortunately, Newman opted out of the 2020 college season to declare for the 2021 NFL Draft a few weeks ago. Unlike rebuilding Arkansas, Auburn is one of about 16 or so teams who can make the College Football Playoff this year. They have talent everywhere, especially with their legacy...
    Alabama football will need to put on a show defensively against Missouri. How will Alabama’s defense fare against the Missouri Tigers in their season opener? That is the question after an uncharacteristic bad defense last year, compared to the lofty standards of the past. The last time these two teams played one another was 2018 in a neutral site game and Alabama delivered a 39-10 blowout. That same season the Crimson Tide received a beatdown of their own at the hands of the Clemson Tigers in the College Football Playoff Championship game. Alabama’s defense will have to contend with the Tiger’s two-headed monster of Larry Rountree III and Tyler Badie who can hurt a defense in both the rushing and...
    The college football odds for Week 4 are out, and here’s how you should bet on every Top 25 game against the spread so you can win some cash. After a relatively quiet week for the Top 25 in Week 3, the college football season truly begins this weekend. This isn’t an “SEC controls the NCAA” take, but just having eight of the top 10 teams actually in action (it was nine before Notre Dame was forced to cancel this week’s game against Wake Forest) makes Saturday must-see TV for the first time this season. There will be huge surprises, big plays from star players, and of course, it does have something to do with the return of SEC football....
    Finding the best bets for college football Week 4 as the SEC schedule gets underway in the 2020 season. As the SEC will get its 2020 season started on Saturday in Week 4, you could say that college football is officially getting started. It’s the conference that, as any fan will remind you, just means more. That may well be the case this year though as there are six top-10 teams in the conference that will get their campaigns underway this week. But here’s the thing — everyone may not be available. While talking to the media this week, Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente said that the Hokies will not have a full roster in Week 4 and...
    You will learn so much from what these college football coaches said.It’s a slow and arduous process, but we’ll master interpreting college football coachspeak. The big key here is fully appreciating the redundant cliches of the most iconic Power 5 coaches in the sport. Not only are the gifted leading their teams to victories on the sidelines, but they are adept at the unintentional vernacular of their second language. Like Parseltongue, coaches like Mike Gundy, Brian Kelly and Dabo Swinney can speak it without even knowing they can do it. If there is a theme to this week’s coachspeak interpretation lesson plan, it is that winning is a cure-all. Just win on Saturday. Whether your team is winning in uncharted...

    SEC football’s return to action in Week 4 could not come at a better time.College football isn’t college football unless we get to watch some SEC football on fall Saturdays. After delaying the start of its 2020 season until the last weekend of September, all 14 SEC teams will be back in action for the first time this Saturday.

    The ACC has two representatives in the Bottom 5 this week.  “If someone shows you who they really are, believe them.” This maxim fits every team represented in the Bottom 5 this week. Good teams are proficient in all three phases of the game. Teams that find themselves in the Bottom 5 are not skilled in all three phases. Teams that find themselves winless either can’t score can’t stop anyone from scoring, or a combination of all three. Every team this week fits one of three of these criteria. Syracuse has played hard on defense, but the Orange can’t score. Middle Tennessee can neither score nor stop anyone.The college football rankings that no one wants to be a part of...

    Both LSU and Oklahoma are the only two teams to post seasons above .500 for the past 20 consecutive years and that’s a remarkable stat. Two of the best college football programs over the years have no question been the Oklahoma Sooners and LSU Tigers. Entering the 2020 campaign, both programs have high expectations, and LSU is fresh off its perfect 15-0 season. Things ended for the Tigers with their National Championship win over Clemson. But, just how good have the two teams been over the past 20 years? Believe it or not, they’re the only two programs that have finished above .500 for at least the past 20 campaigns.

    The best bets for college football Week 3 that you can most definitely count on to cash out.

Moneyline bets can be a bit tricky, especially when calling them best bets. To get real value on a moneyline, you either have to be confident in an upset so you can get plus-odds or parlay...
    (CNN)We shouldn't be surprised that every day seems to bring new reports about another college or university experiencing an outbreak of coronavirus and students having to be sent home. College students are of an age where they -- or their dorm mates -- are likely to be unable, or unwilling, to practice social distancing on campus. Most American colleges and universities spent much of the spring and summer trying to determine a strategy for returning to school in the fall. Some, like the California State University system (CSU), made the decision to move to online fall classes last spring. As the school year approached, several of the wealthier private schools, like the one where I teach scaled back their plans...

    When it came time to confront a global pandemic, we should’ve known college football would whiff on the tackle. This flimsy collection of largely autonomous fiefdoms, each concerned mainly with hoarding wealth and power, was never going to make the right call against a fearsome opponent like the coronavirus. Not this sport, which has always been perfectly content to rake in billions of dollars off the backs of unpaid laborers, poisoning our system of higher education by transforming campuses into no-wage professional franchises. Those in charge followed their usual game plan when faced with a potentially deadly game of roulette. They followed the money. “We’re kind of undergoing a natural experiment to see what happens” was the ominous assessment of...
    Sports fans had a reason to celebrate today, as Big Ten conference presidents and chancellors voted to start college football season on Oct. 24. The decision was taken under serious consideration but ultimately was given the green light mostly due to advances in medical information and resources regarding coronavirus. Hide Though several Big Ten teams experienced outbreaks among players over the summer, the availability of rapid-testing programs made contact tracing more feasible, increasing overall team confidence. Hide Though it must be great to have even small concessions such as college football to remind us of pre-pandemic life, it’s also important to take things in stride, as COVID-19 is still very much an ongoing threat.

    As the United States continues to face the novel coronavirus pandemic with no significant guidance from the Trump administration, states and cities have operated with a number of different guidelines (or lack thereof) in order to contain the virus and keep people safe. As colleges have begun reopening for in-person classes, we’ve seen spikes in coronavirus cases leading to campus quarantines and semester closures. Related to colleges, people have hotly debated whether college athletics—and particularly Big Ten college football—will resume amid the pandemic. As of Wednesday morning, the Big Ten presidents and chancellors voted unanimously to resume the football season the weekend of Oct. 24, as reported by the Star Tribune.  As of now, the conference plans for an eight-week season, with a Big...

    Wesley Hitt/Getty Images Louisiana State University (LSU) head football coach Ed Orgeron said most of his team has been infected with the coronavirus. Orgeron said on Tuesday that “not all of our players, but most of our players have caught it,” referring to Covid-19, and added, “I think that hopefully they won’t catch it again, and hopefully they’re not out for games.” “Hopefully that once you catch it, you don’t get it again,” he continued, noting, “I’m not a doctor. I think they have that 90-day window, so most of the players that have caught it, we do feel like they’ll be eligible for games.” College football players from other teams have also tested positive for Covid-19, with a total...

    The Big Ten football season not happening isn’t part of a wacky conspiracy.Big Ten football may be back on after a vote to play by the university presidents and chancellors. The Big Ten voted to postpone its 2020 college football season back in early August due to the ongoing global pandemic. Though the Pac-12, the Mountain West and the MAC would all agree to not play football this fall, the six other FCS conferences and a few national independents decided to solider on anyway.

    College football is mostly back and while it’s easy to complain about the unique situation, let’s choose to enjoy what we have rather than don’t have.
