SEC Selection Update – Week Eight

The Big Ten got much of the spotlight last weekend thanks to Michigan State’s upset of Wisconsin.

SEC Results Vanderbilt 44, Army 21 Kentucky 38, Jacksonville State 14 Alabama 37, Tennessee 6 LSU 45, Auburn 10 Arkansas 29, Mississippi 24 The most anticipated matchup of the weekend was Auburn at LSU, especially with three Bayou […]

Big Ten Selection Update – Week Eight

The great thing about days like last Saturday is that they remind us of why we love college football.  Michigan State’s miracle Hail Mary against Wisconsin was the kind of once-in-a-lifetime moment that Spartan fans will cite for years to come. The “bad” thing (not really bad) about those days is that on the following Monday, our Team Selection Committee has to sit down and make sense of it all. A wild weekend in college football changed the landscape for […]

Capital One Bowl Selection Update: Week 7

After the release of the first Bowl Championship Series standings, our Team Selection Committee has begun to talk in earnest about available teams. Unfortunately for prognosticators (but fortunately for fans of college football), a lot of the teams on our radar still have to play each other. There will be a number of great games in the second half of the year that will impact our picture way more than anything we’ve seen so far. Big Ten Results Michigan State […]

BCS Standings – 10/16/11

The first Bowl Championship Series standings of the season are released, and that takes us one step closer to Selection Sunday. There’s still half a season to be played, but now bowl projections and possible pairings can be discussed without the Way Too Early prefix. Although really, anything prior to the last week of the season is still Too Early, if history is any indication. Let’s check the first standings: 1. LSU Tigers 2. Alabama Crimson Tide 3. Oklahoma Sooners […]

Capital One Bowl Selection Update: Week 6

At the halfway point of the season, the Capital One Bowl picture is kind of like one of those ink blot Rorshach tests – there’s no clear right answer and it’s all up the personal interpretation.  The Team Selection Committee met on Monday morning to discuss the previous weekend’s games (and scout trips). Big Ten Results Michigan 42, Northwestern 24 Nebraska 34, Ohio State 17 Penn State 13, Iowa 3 Purdue 45, Minnesota 17 Illinois 41, Indiana 20 SEC Results […]

Nothing in college football is a lock when you are dealing with the greatest regular season in all of sports, but both of our partner conferences are starting to take shape. Here are some highlights from last weekend and Monday’s […]
