    Monday’s Rewind and Look Forward (Nov. 12)

    By Josh Adams -

    Johnny ManzielWhat a weekend for the Texas A&M Aggies. The boys from College Station proved they belong in the SEC with a stunning upset of Alabama last Saturday night. Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel reminded me of Doug Flutie and Brett Favre in the way of avoiding the sack and extending the play in order to find the open receiver against the Tide. A&M will be a force to be reckoned with in the SEC as long as Manziel lines up under center for the Aggies, and they might just bring home a national championship to College Station before his career is over. It’s hard to believe he’s only a freshman. It should give schools like Tennessee and Auburn faith that the right recruit can quickly turn your teams fortunes around.

    Alabama’s loss had a serious ripple effect on the polls and the BCS standings. Kansas State and Oregon are #1 and #2 in the BCS, but as we saw with Alabama, there are no guarantees they will meet in January.Read Full Story »

    Game of the Week – Penn State at (16) Nebraska

    By Josh Adams -

    Nebraska-Penn StateWhile looking at the top 25 schedule for Saturday, it quickly dawned on me that this week is pretty much a dog week (whenever ESPN College Gameday is on an aircraft carrier, that’s a pretty good sign). I think the top 2 teams (Alabama, K-State) will run roughshod over their two opponents (Texas A&M, TCU). Oregon and Notre Dame have two cupcake games Saturday, so the top four should remain unchanged.

    I then took a look at the Big 10 and saw a matchup between two programs that normally would have big time bowl ramifications. Nebraska and Penn State are two of the most successful programs in college football, and their fan bases are some of the most dedicated in the country.Read Full Story »

    Monday’s Rewind and Look Forward (Nov. 5)

    By Josh Adams -

    Kenjon BarnerAll of the unbeaten teams stayed unbeaten this past Saturday. Alabama and Notre Dame were taken to the absolute limit by LSU and Pitt, but used skill and in the Fighting Irish case a little luck to keep their perfection intact. LSU seemed to have Alabama’s offense on the ropes in the 2nd half, but AJ McCarron and the Tide Offense drove almost the length of the field in 90 seconds to keep their record unblemished. Notre Dame was taken to the brink by a scrappy Pittsburgh team, but a missed field goal in OT kept the Fighting Irish in the national title hunt.

    Kansas State can no longer be overlooked as a national title contender. What was impressive about their win against Oklahoma State was they didn’t have their Heisman contender, QB Collin Klein for the bulk of the 4th quarter as he suffered a wrist injury. Read Full Story »

    Game of the Week – (24) Oklahoma State at (2) Kansas State

    By Josh Adams -

    Kansas State-Oklahoma StateI struggled for days thinking about which game should be game of the week. I knew Brian had the SEC covered with Clear Your Schedule, so I flipped a coin between Oregon at USC and Oklahoma State at Kansas State. It landed tails, so here we are with this Top 25, Big 12 matchup (Oregon and USC more than likely will meet again before the end of the year).

    As I’ve been reading and looking at highlights of both teams, I see some serious upset potential here. Oklahoma State has a more balanced offense than either West Virginia or Texas Tech, two Top 25 teams the Wildcats disposed of earlier this year. That being said, Collin Klein is a force to be reckoned with, and Kansas State is not sneaking up on anybody. Read Full Story »

    Monday’s Rewind and Look Forward (Oct. 29)

    By Josh Adams -

    Manti Te'oOh boy, some team in college football is about to get royally jobbed. Until we get the playoff system in place either Oregon, Kansas State or Notre Dame could potentially go undefeated and not have the opportunity to compete for the national title. As we are FBSchedules.com, let’s take a look at these three teams schedules and do a little odds making on who will end up shooting for a “moral” victory in January.

    Kansas State remaining schedule (Oklahoma State, at TCU, at Baylor, Texas)

    Odds on playing in BCS Championship: 60%

    TCU has been struggling since they had to send their QB to rehab, Baylor will be like an all you can eat offensive buffet for QB Collin Klein, and Texas might be tough as Mack Brown might be coaching for his job. I think Oklahoma State has a chance at an upset this Saturday. No one is playing better than Klein, so if he continues his high level of play, K-State will write it’s own destiny in 2012.Read Full Story »
