There have been some worthy candidates since the Ducks became recognized as a national power in the sport, but quarterback Marcus Mariota may have the best chance to finally end that Heisman drought in Eugene.
Unfortunately for the Big Ten, the chance to prove itself on the national stage in 2014 has officially been missed.
If you did not know his name before Thursday, you undoubtedly know it now. Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill put on quite the show in his debut as the starting quarterback in the post-Johnny Manziel […]
The Big Ten had an opportunity to make a statement in the opening weekend of the college football season, but Wisconsin let a 24-7 lead slip away against LSU in Houston. As Wisconsin saw a […]
College football’s top players compete for the Heisman Trophy. Here are the contenders as well as a few sleepers.
Forget much of what you know about college football. The chase for one of the four playoff spots begins this weekend with a handful of high-profile games.
Drew Brees can be patient behind a steady offensive line. The Eagles struggled to bring a pass rush on Kyle Orton many times on Sunday night, so look for the defensive line to try and correct that this week against New Orleans. Easier said than done of course.
Each bowl game will carry a different storyline with its game, which helps to make each game unique. Colorado State has already served up one of the more unbelievable endings we will be sure to see this bowl season, with a wild rally against Washington State in the New Mexico Bowl. If that was a preview of things to come this bowl season, hang on tight!
The Heisman Trophy will be presented Saturday evening in New York City. Winston’s name should be at the top of the list as college football’s most impressive player from the start of the season through the championship games. Everything else after that is purely a guess.
Are the two best teams in the country right now scheduled to collide in Pasadena, California? It would be difficult to prove otherwise.
Few quarterbacks in college football have put up the kind of passing numbers Fresno State’s Derek Carr has this season. Carr has passed for a nation-leading 4,462 yards and 45 touchdowns while being picked off just five times all year.
If Ohio State gets by the defensive juggernaut of Michigan State in Indianapolis, the Buckeyes absolutely deserve to head to the final BCS Championship Game of the BCS era regardless of what happens at the SEC Championship in Atlanta.
If Kellen Moore and Colt Brennan could do it, then why not Northern Illinois Jordan Lynch? Lynch received three first-place votes for the Heisman Trophy in 2012, so he is certainly on the radar for some voters out there.
The easy question is to ask if Ohio State is better than Baylor, but the real question should ask if Michigan State is better than Oklahoma State. That is the most important question over the next few weeks, but it will not matter if Alabama and Florida State run the table to collide in Pasadena.
Baylor’s Bryce Petty is probably on the outside looking in on the Heisman Trophy, but a trip to New York for the ceremony is well within reach.
It feels weird to suggest that an undefeated Ohio State team could have absolutely no shot to play in the national championship game, but that is the reality staring down at the Buckeyes right now following the release of the latest BCS standings Sunday night.
By now, we have taken a glance at some of the SEC’s Heisman hopefuls like Manziel, McCarron and Murray. But what about the league’s second highest-rated passer, LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger?
This is the week college football fans have had circled on the calendar for quite some time. This is the week that will begin to truly shape the BCS Championship picture. This is the week we have been waiting for.
If there is one quarterback in the country you might want leading your offense down field with the game on the line, it may be Alabama’s AJ McCarron.
Northern Illinois looks to become the second back-to-back BCS Buster in the history of the BCS, joining TCU. Fresno State, currently the top team in the BCS-busting Mountain West Conference, is looking to reach their first BCS bowl game. So, who has the best shot?
The Pac 12 has a few quarterbacks being talked about when discussing the Heisman Trophy this season. While Oregon’s Marcus Mariota may be considered the Heisman favorite at this point in the season, Oregon State’s Sean Mannion has been doing more than enough to stay in the running, and may be the ultimate sleeper pick this season.
Will Alabama be the next and most significant victim of the SEC’s internal battle royal? Can Florida State avoid a letdown and represent the ACC in the biggest game of the year? This is what makes college football so interesting.
It takes a truly special year by a freshman to deserve the kind of Heisman respect that leads to an invite to New York. Fortunately for Florida State, freshman quarterback Jameis Winston is having just that kind of season so far.
This weekend, college football will shift its attention to the ACC. Playing in the shadows of the SEC the last few years, the ACC will offer this week’s game of the week when Clemson hosts Florida State.
Teddy Bridgewater may be one of the best quarterbacks in the nation, but his best bet to become Louisville’s first Heisman Trophy winner in school history will come from putting up huge numbers and seeing other candidates take a stumble.
