Stanford and Oregon continue to form a Pac-12 sandwich around Alabama after combining for 110 weekend points as the Crimson Tide held Ole Miss pointless. Oklahoma has moved up 12 spots since opening day in a rebuttal to Rankman's preseason evaluation....

1: Oklahoma looks to avenge last year's shocking 30-13 home loss to Notre Dame when it visits South Bend. The win legitimized Notre Dame as a national title contender and improved its all-time record over Oklahoma to 9-1. The Sooners' lone win in the...

A weird thing happened last weekend to 10 proud bowl teams that went a combined 94-37 in 2012: They all lost.
This is bounce-back (or else?) Saturday for Virginia Tech, Kansas State, Texas Christian, Brigham Young, Boise State, San Diego State, Georgia,...

Put away the running clocks. Silly season should be over — at least until Alabama hosts Chattanooga in late November.
It is ridiculous to think Ohio State could play a team so overmatched that the Buckeyes' backup quarterback could throw six...

The score was so one-sided it looked like a paycheck game for homecoming.
The winning school totaled 614 yards to the losing team's 234 and won the first-down battle, 33-9.
