  • Mississippi State leads the first College Football Playoff rankings

    College football's new four-team playoff was supposed to give other schools a chance to compete with the Southeastern Conference, which won seven of the last eight titles in the Bowl Championship Series. It didn't look that way Tuesday when the SEC West...
  • Big Ten fares poorly in first playoff rankings

    When Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany finally gave his blessing to a playoff, it was a nod to hyperventilating college football fans and a thumbs-up to extra TV money. Another benefit: Given that the SEC champion was practically guaranteed to advance...
  • USC fans shouldn't blame Steve Sarkisian for latest losses

    USC fans shouldn't blame Steve Sarkisian for latest losses
    USC fans have the answer for everything wrong in the world today — "Blame Sark." The Trojans should change their horse's name from "Traveler" to Roy Rogers' lesser-known backup mount: "Hair-Trigger." No one weeps for Steve Sarkisian because he...
  • Ranking the college football bowl games from No. 38 to No. 1

    The postseason is one "Kokomo Bowl" from becoming the next verse in a Beach Boys song: "Miami, Bahamas, come on pretty mamma, Camellia, and Boca, this is not a joke-a." Four new bowl games plus the extra championship game means the process of picking...
  • Fired up about College Football Playoff; about firings, not so much

    A thrilling next-to-last football weekend was briefly interrupted Sunday when Nebraska announced it had fired Bo Pelini for winning only nine games, or more, in each of his seven seasons. "Nine-win Bo," a higher-expectations knockoff slam of "Seven-...
  • Buckeyes, not Spartans, Big Ten's best playoff hope

     Buckeyes, not Spartans, Big Ten's best playoff hope
    I have this theory that the Big Ten's best hope to make the College Football Playoff is not its highest-ranked team, not the group that (finally) salvaged conference pride by winning the Rose Bowl. Michigan State is ranked No. 5 in the USA Today coaches...
  • Fond, and not-so-fond, remembrances of college football's poll system

    A few days from now, eyes will be fixed on the first top-25 list released by the College Football Playoff selection committee. Those rankings, due for release Tuesday, will be the only ones that matter. So we thought this might be a good time to pay...
  • College football: What games to watch Saturday on TV

    Each week our national college football writer describes how he would handle the television remote on Saturday, handicapping what's worth watching, and skipping: MORNING Texas (3-4) at No. 11 Kansas State (5-1) 9 a.m., ESPN It took Kansas State...
  • Speaking of Sports open thread: Notre Dame was robbed (by the voters in the polls)!

    Speaking of  Sports open thread: Notre Dame was robbed (by the voters in the polls)!
    I'm no fan of Notre Dame football. In fact my two main pleasures during the college season are rooting for Michigan -- my childhood team as well as my alma mater -- and rooting against Notre Dame. But that said, given how closely they played No. 2...
  • Thrilling season makes it tough to predict college football's playoffs

    Thrilling season makes it tough to predict college football's playoffs
    Notre Dame was the last program you thought would screw up a simple throw and catch. The Fighting Irish didn't invent the forward pass, but certainly modernized it during a 1913 game against Army. Gus Dorais and Knute Rockne practiced all summer while...
  • FSU uses drop in polls as motivation

    FSU uses drop in polls as motivation
    You might not have been able to see it even under the bright lights at Doak Campbell Stadium Saturday night, but it was there. Some Florida State players could see it clearly in the reflection in the iconic gold helmets of the Notre Dame players they...
