All 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 »
Another week of ACC play is behind us, and we’re still no closer to knowing who will make the trip to Charlotte on December 1. Week 11 provides another “elimination week” scenario for a number of teams, while one of the conference’s clubs will step outside of ACC play to take on a team with national championship aspirations. We’ll try to clear up the road to Charlotte for some of the contending teams, all the while realizing we may not be much closer to the answers until the final week of conference play. Before we break everything down, though, it’s trivia time!

November is the month for many in the SEC to step out of conference and take a break from the grueling week-by-week conference schedule. Several conference teams have decided to do just that this week, while others are trying to come off the high of beating a big-name opponent. We have yet another top-five matchup this week, as well as two top-20 teams facing off.
We need to take a spin around the packed eight-game schedule involving SEC teams this week, but before we do, here’s some trivia!

If there’s one thing we know about the ACC, it’s that we still know very little about what to expect from the season’s finish. After five (or six, depending) games, four Coastal teams each have two losses — and they LEAD the division. Clemson could conceivably win out and not take home the Atlantic Division crown, all because of their 49-37 loss to Florida State to begin their ACC slate. Maryland led the Atlantic just a couple of weeks ago, and they now find themselves in the middle of the pack and fighting for their postseason lives.
We still may not have all the answers after Week 10’s slate of games, especially with only five conference contests. Three ACC squads are already bowl-eligible, and a fourth looks to join them this week. As the march to Charlotte continues, let’s take a look around the conference for Week 10. Read Full Story »

BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe revealed some information about the Cougars’ 2013 football schedule on Monday at the West Coast Conference Men’s Basketball Tip-Off event.
Holmoe didn’t announce any new additions to the schedule. Rather, he said that two teams under contract for the 2013 season requested to back out.
“We had the schedule relatively set; we were done,” said Holmoe, “and two teams, one of them under contract, asked to get out–which we did–and one team that was not under contract, but for all intents and purposes, it was done…(they) bailed out.” Read Full Story »

Oh 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.
