The half-season's biggest surprises

At the midpoint of the 2013 college football regular season, let's talk about some of the season's biggest surprises to date, from Texas A&M's defense to Notre Dame to Oklahoma State's offensive...

Agony, redemption, and upset bids

Upset bids failed in creative fashion throughout the country (and especially in Tennessee), Missouri's James Franklin is healthy and productive, Devin Gardner avoids mistakes, and wow, does Florida...

Oregon is terrifying

Oregon couldn't hold onto the ball, quarterback Marcus Mariota had a poor game, and ... the Ducks led Cal 41-3 at halftime. Also: it was a bad week for quarterbacks and a good one for late surges.

Baylor's gonna drop 1,000 on somebody

Big hearts and big runs

Week 3 of the 2013 college football season was one for obscene passing numbers, huge runs, creatively bad officiating, and Eric LeGrand.

Baylor breaks football

Baylor's offense breaks football, Michigan State and USF's offenses break it back, Stanford passes its first test, Miami wins with one offensive play, and suddenly more Johnny Manziel/Alabama hype...

Texas takes its time, Georgia rues missed opportunities, Henry Josey returns, and ... we're ready to acknowledge that Washington might be for real, right?

The machine

Nick Saban has accomplished something only Nebraska's Tom Osborne and Notre Dame's Frank Leahy had managed in the poll era: a third national title in four years. Let's look back at the Tide's most...

Ole Miss' future is bright

The Rebel hype machine is ready to rumble for 2013 after a 38-17 Ole Mis win over Pittsburgh in Birmingham.

Eventual magic

7

Oklahoma held Johnny Manziel and the Aggies in check for quite a while in the first half, but the Sooners couldn't take advantage. And you had to know what was coming after that.
