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!
SEC Trivia (answer at the end of the column): This week features Missouri’s first trip to Florida as an SEC opponent. When did these two schools last face off on the gridiron? Read Full Story »

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 »

Ohio State will host the first game of the series at Ohio Stadium on Sept. 19, 2020. The second and final game will be played at Boston College’s Alumni Stadium on Sept. 18, 2021.
“Boston College is a fine program from an outstanding conference (ACC),” Gene Smith, Ohio State associate vice president and director of athletics, said. “This gives Ohio State fans a chance to watch their Buckeyes in back-to-back games against Pacific 12 and ACC schools.” 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.

The Auburn Tigers have announced their four non-conference games for next season, which officially completes their 2013 schedule.

It’s quite a weekend of good matchups in college football. In the Big 12 K-State vs. Texas Tech, the SEC has Georgia vs. Florida and Alabama vs. Mississippi State, the Big Ten features Ohio State vs. Penn State and in the ACC, the surprising Duke Blue Devils and Florida State face off with first place at stake.
What sticks out though is the odd October non-conference matchup between Notre Dame and Oklahoma. The teams agreed to a home and home matchup for 2012 and 2013, and the Fighting Irish travel to Norman, OK for their toughest test of the season. It’ll be a battle of two historic programs who both field top 10 teams. If Notre Dame wins, their national championship hopes stay alive in 2012, and they bring a tough as nails defense to face QB Landry Jones and an experienced Oklahoma team that is determined not to lose twice at home this season. Here’s what to look for between these two teams in Norman on Saturday: Read Full Story »
The time of the season has approached in which we get the updated BCS rankings each week, and the numbers tell us that the SEC is, yet again, at the top of the heap. The conference features the top two, five of the top 11 and seven of the top 25 teams in the BCS standings. Four of those teams face off against each other this week, as #1 Alabama plays #11 Mississippi State, while #2 Florida draws #10 Georgia.
If you honestly needed a reason to watch SEC football, those are two of the most compelling. Let’s take a spin around the conference for Week 9 and see what other compelling matchups await us. Read Full Story »
