College Football 2011: Sooners Bumped from Top Spot in AP Poll Despite Win

Lousiana State University

By Cabrone D. Brewer

Since the beginning of the season over four weeks ago in Dallas, the LSU Tigers have been steadily on the prowl toward the top.

Saturday they finally reached the summit.

After spending the first three weeks of the season rotating with Alabama for the second and third position in the Associated Press college football poll, LSU finally decided that it was time to breakaway from the pack and leapfrogged Oklahoma for the nation’s top honors with a stunning 47-21 win over then-No.16 West Virginia in Morgantown.

Opening Weekend of College Football puts Spotlight Back on the Field

By Cabrone Brewer

College football’s kickoff weekend is never without its surprises on the field, but this season most of the opening day mischief came from the clouds above. Michigan and West Virginia had their victories cut short in the rain, while games at Notre Dame, Iowa and Tennessee all had serious delays due to severe weather near the stadiums.

And a media storm has begun to surface over Oklahoma and Texas as rumors place both programs looking at a move to the infant Pac-12.

Two of the weekend’s biggest surprises, however, came from the north Texas region. In a Friday night opening battle, defending Rose Bowl Champ TCU scored 25 points in the fourth quarter, but that wasn’t enough to keep Baylor from their first win over a ranked opponent since 2004, as kicker Aaron Jones booted a 37-yard field goal with 1:04 left to give BU a 50-48 edge over the #14 Horned Frogs. Bears’ quarterback Robert Griffin III threw for a career-high five TD passes.

From the new Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, a game that many thought would go down to the wire, turned into a rout. Turnovers and inexperience at several positions put third-ranked Oregon in the hole as fourth-ranked LSU kept the pressure coming to catch the Ducks’ off-guard 40-27. It was the first season opening game of two top-five teams on a neutral field since 1984 and the 34th consecutive nonconference game won by the Tigers — the longest nonconference-winning streak in the nation.

Foursquare Launches Universities 2.0 on Hundreds of College Campuses

Last year, the popular social media app foursquare announced plans to officially partner with more than 20 universities across the nation to help students explore their college campuses and learn about their school’s traditions. The program was a huge success and now than 10 million users joined in on the fun. Now foursquare is making the program even bigger and better with a new and improved version called Universities 2.0.

Universities 2.0 will have all of the fun features that the original foursquare for universities had, such as the ability to check in at various locations on campus, learn about traditions and folklore, and see what your friends thought about various things related to your campus. However, Universities 2.0 will have something that the original program did not have: badges. These badges will represent the schools on foursquare and also could be used on college campuses to advertise that the campus is a foursquare-friendly zone.

Don’t Forget Us: College Football Non-Title Game Preview

Aside from the various conference title games, there’s plenty of other good action to keep you on your seat in college football this weekend. Such as:

1) #2 Oregon at Oregon State— The annual “Civil War” battle between the Beavers and Ducks has lost a lot of its luster since Oregon State’s season descended to mediocrity (in a decidedly mediocre conference.) Whatever glimmer of hope we got for a decent game after Oregon State beat USC was tempered by a 38-0 whitewash from Stanford. Before you tell me “It’s a rivalry game! Anything can happen!” remember that Oregon has been held under 42 points once all season and Oregon State lost by 17 to Washington State. Unfortunately for TCU, the Ducks win in a laugher.

University of Missouri’s Shakespeare’s Pizza Wins Best College Food Contest

There are a few things that are inherent to any college campus: students, books, beer and greasy college grub. Just recently, ABC’s Good Morning America launched a “Best Bites: College Edition” challenge, where students voted for their favorite campus grub. In fact, more than 20,000 people voted for the best college food in America.

The competition was fierce, the food was greasy and Good Morning America’s co-anchor and judge, Ron Claiborne was quite stuffed following his cross country food fest.

Here is a look at the college culinary final four: Read the rest of this entry »



Can Boise State Pass the Test? College Football Week 4 Preview

Boise StateWith conference play (mostly) upon us, there’s a full slate of compelling games for the fourth week of the college football season, so let’s take a look at the best of the best.

Reminder: All ranking reflect the USA Today coaches poll, which has a bearing on the BCS.

#1 Alabama at #11 Arkansas— Boy, Mark Ingram didn’t miss a step, did he? The Crimson Tide’s Heisman winner came back with a bang last week and lit up Duke in another easy ‘Bama win. This week promises to be more challenging, as the 11th-ranked Razorbacks figure needs to put up some points behind Heisman candidate Ryan Mallet, who has thrown for over 1,000 yards in three games. The game is the first of three straight contests the Tide will play against ranked conference foes. Read the rest of this entry »
