College Football 2011: Rude Welcomings

Arkansas and Wisconsin sports logosBy Cabrone D. Brewer

It was a weekend of welcoming conference newbies around the college football world, but for No.8 Nebraska it was a total Big Ten debut disaster.

Facing No. 7 Wisconsin in a much-anticipated conference showdown at Camp Randall Stadium, Nebraska proved they still have a lot to learn about their new rivals by succumbing to a 48-17 thumping in Madison.

Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez threw three interceptions, while Wisconsin running back Montee Ball ran for 151 yards and four touchdowns — keeping the Badgers’ outstanding scoring machine headed in the right direction as conference play begins to take center stage.

No. 18 Arkansas threw out the SEC welcome mat a year early for No. 14 Texas A&M, giving the Aggies a taste of Southeastern Conference hospitality in a wild 42-38 victory for the Razorbacks.

College Football 2011: New Friends, Old Foes

Wisconsin and Nebraska College FootballBy Cabrone Brewer

The wait is finally over.

For 13 long months, both Wisconsin and Nebraska have patiently waited to meet each other on the field as Big Ten cohabitants — and Saturday’s inaugural conference grinder between the No. 7 Badgers and No. 8 Cornhuskers can’t arrive fast enough for players and fans alike.

Both teams enter the game undefeated and heavy favorites among their respective Big Ten divisions, with Wisconsin thoroughly demolishing teams by clinging to a soft nonconference schedule and Nebraska sailing through their opening matchups with relative ease.

The Huskers will look to send an early message to Big Ten opponents in the first game in Madison since 1962 to feature two teams ranked in the top ten.

For All The Marbles: College Football Conference Title Games Preview

It’s that time of year again: A handful of college football conferences have their conference title games this week, and the biggest of them all has national championship game implications:

1) South Carolina vs. Auburn: The SEC title game has often been called a “national semifinal” game by SEC fans. While this isn’t exactly true this season, what with the SEC East being horrible and everything, the Tigers are a lock for the championship game if they top the Gamecocks–they might even get in if they lose, but Steve Spurrier’s bunch won’t just roll over for the coronation; they led Auburn 27-21 heading into the fourth quarter when the two teams met in September. An eligible Cam Newton, however, hasn’t been stopped yet, so the Tigers have to be the favorite.

Two Unbeaten Teams Fall, but Top of College Football World Steady

iowa hawkeyesWe’re down to five unbeaten teams in college football following a pair of shellackings in Week 9. Three of those five are from non-automatic qualifier BCS schools, so those hoping for a BCS-buster cleared two roadblocks away (albeit small ones).

1. Sparty Stomped— Well, now we know why Michigan State was considered the underdog against Iowa despite a higher ranking. The Hawkeyes avenged last week’s loss to Wisconsin with a 37-6 whipping of MSU that wasn’t even that close. Mark Dantonio’s team was down 30-0 at halftime, victims of the most dominating half of football I’ve seen all year, considering the competition. The Iowa win opens up the Big-10 for all kinds of fun scenarios, as the Michigan State, Iowa, Ohio State and Wisconsin quartet all have one loss in conference to one of those four.

Major Shakeup Ahead? Week 9 College Football Preview

USC trojansWe’re getting down to the nitty gritty of the college football season, and this week could provide a massive shakeup, as three unbeaten teams all face exceptionally tough road games. Let’s jump on in.

1) #2 Oregon at USC— There’s been a lot of talk that this is USC’s “National Championship” game, what with those pesky bowl bans in effect. Ok, I’ll buy that, but USC’s ability to score makes this interesting. The Trojans have an elite offense that averages 37 points a game, which makes them well-suited to keep up with Oregon’s blur offense. Let’s face it: No team is likely to shut down the Ducks with less than a week’s prep time, so you’ve gotta outscore them. Oregon’s defensive numbers look good, but they allowed 600 yards to Arizona State and 520 to Stanford, so teams can move the ball on them. The Trojans should be OK for a half; Oregon tends to let teams hang around, but the Ducks usually turn on the jets in the second half. Read the rest of this entry »



Sooners Look to Defend Top Spot in BCS Standings

Oklahoma SoonersNow that the first BCS standings have been released, we can get going on all the heated debate sure to accompany them. This week’s college football preview has a number of games that could impact the title picture, and several more great games.

*Please note that, unlike previous columns, subsequent articles will use the BCS standings for team rankings

1. #1 Oklahoma at #11 Missouri— This is probably the week where Mizzou gets exposed. Despite a 6-0 record, Missouri’s best win is either Illinois or San Diego State, and the Tigers were hardly dominant in either victory. Oklahoma’s lived on the edge this season, but has two wins over BCS-ranked teams. The game is under the Missouri lights, which may keep the Tigers in it early, but the Sooners should pull away and stay at #1. Read the rest of this entry »



College Football Stunner: Buckeyes Blitzed

Now things are getting interesting.

After seven weeks of college football, the two teams most thought would meet for the national championship, Alabama and Ohio State, have both lost. As a result, the race to Glendale is wide open. Here’s a look at the significant games from Week 7:ohio state

1. Rocked at Camp Randall: After suffering from coverage team breakdowns all season, the Wisconsin Badgers finally got to experience the other side of the coin. David Gilreath took the opening kickoff back 97 yards for a touchdown to put Ohio State behind the 8-ball, and the Badgers jumped out to a 21-0 lead en route to a 31-18 victory over the top-ranked Buckeyes. The win was Wisconsin Head Coach Bert Bielema’s first against a top 10 team, and keeps Wisconsin’s hopes alive for a Rose Bowl. The Buckeyes national title hopes are effectively dashed, as they now sit fourth in the Big 10. Read the rest of this entry »



Few Upsets Loom in Week 7 of College Football Season

texas longhorn footballThose of us hoping for major shakeups in the college football polls this weekend might be disappointed. There are only two games between ranked opponents, and many of the elite teams don’t have tough match-ups.

Nonetheless, here are the biggest match-ups of the week:

1. #1 Ohio State at #16 Wisconsin I suppose this game being at Camp Randall makes it an upset possibility, although the next decent team Wisconsin beats will be their first. The Badgers are coming off a rivalry game victory over a dreadful Minnesota team, but this OSU team is a heck of a lot better. The Buckeyes are coming off a thrashing of a decent Indiana team, and have won in Wisconsin before. Read the rest of this entry »
