SCS.comDESERT STORM: USC VS ASU PREVIEW
September 30, 2005
By Jeremy, SCS.com Staff Writer
The defending national champions make their way across the Interstate 10 today as they prepare to face the Arizona State Sun Devils. With a perfect record on the line and a Pac-10 and USC record 25 straight wins, the Trojans step into a game that looks like it could turn out to be the great offensive shootout that their game with Oregon wasn't. Arizona State is no Oregon though. The Sun Devil offense is capable of putting up....[MORE]

SCS.comNO MORE QUARTERBACK CAROUSELS
September 29, 2005
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
One week into conference play in most leagues except the Big XII, and the one issue which stands out the most to me is how teams have excelled or failed on a national championship-caliber stage based on leadership. Most national championship teams in this decade have had great quarterback leaders on offense and one or two clutch leaders on the defensive side as well. The offensive leader is almost always the....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEKEND PREVIEW
September 27, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Florida and Alabama get together Saturday afternoon in a battle between two teams at the top of their respective division standings. Urban Meyer's Gators are 4-0 and have prevailed in their first two SEC outings, while the Crimson Tide has also compiled four overall victories, two in the SEC, heading into the month of October. UF is currently tied with Georgia and surprising Vanderbilt atop the SEC standings, while UA sits a....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE WEEKEND'S BEST

By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
RB Laurence Maroney led Minnesota to a thrilling, double-overtime victory over Purdue on Saturday. Also in the Big Ten this weekend, Wisconsin scored a late TD to down Michigan, giving the Wolverines their second loss of the season, while RB Javon Ringer led Michigan State over Illinois. Elsewhere, South Florida pulled the country's biggest upset of the weekend, slamming Big East rival Louisville by a score of 45-14....[MORE]

SCS.comTHEYWOOD EXTENDS PICK'EM LEAD
September 25, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Ericslonghorns turned in the best score of the week, earning 152 points and vaulting from 15th to 4th place in the SCS.com Pick'Em Contest standings. Theywood was one of nineteen contestants to tally at least 135 points over the weekend and extended his lead in the overall standings to fifteen points. Greech climbed into a tie at number two with Gator Girl, while ericslonghorns and Nashoba find themselves tied for fourth....[MORE]

SCS.comUNDER OFFICIAL REVIEW
September 23, 2005
By Jeremy, SCS.com Staff Writer
Four weeks into the season, the verdict is still out on the use of instant replay in NCAA football games. Sometimes instant replay is fun to use when youíve burned your little brother on a halfback pass play on the PS2, but itís not such a thing of beauty when it comes to real life use. Instant replay severely slows down the pace of a game and might otherwise hinder momentum that either team might be building up with the tempo....[MORE]

SCS.comWELCOME BACK CONFERENCE PLAY
September 21, 2005
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
This weekend college football mainly stops the weeks full of intersectional out-of-conference games and turns to conference battles. BCS elimination games are already occurring in most leagues between some high name and highly ranked teams in major conferences like the SEC, ACC, and Big Ten. This week has a few gems just like last week, so with no further ado, let's get into it. From the frying pan to the fire: Tennessee has....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEKEND PREVIEW
September 20, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech, both 3-0 on the season thus far, get together Saturday afternoon in Blacksburg in a showdown of two teams ranked in the top eight of the latest SCS.com Fab 15. Florida State knocked off Boston College in an Atlantic Divison battle last weekend, but this is the first huge Coastal Division matchup of the 2005 season. The Yellow Jackets were our preseason sleeper pick in the ACC this fall, and they....[MORE]

September 18, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
UCLA took down the Oklahoma Sooners Saturday, handing OU their second loss and moving the Bruins to 3-0 on the young season. QB Drew Olson completed 28 of his 38 passes for 314 yards and a trio of touchdowns and has been chosen as the SCS.com National Player of the Week. Other top performers this past weekend included Kellen Clemens of Oregon, Chris Barclay of Wake Forest, and Johnnie Lee Higgins of UTEP....[MORE]

SCS.comPERFECT WEEK LEADS TO NEW PICK'EM LEADER
September 18, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Theywood had a perfect Pick'Em week, earning all 210 available points and jumping up one spot into the leader's position of the SCS.com Pick'Em Contest. Gator Girl, who led the contest after weeks one and two, fell back into second place and is now ten points out of the top spot heading into week four. Greech, who scored a near-perfect 208 this past weekend, and Nashoba held onto their spots and round out the overall top four....[MORE]

SCS.comWEST: THREE AND OUT
September 16, 2005
By Jeremy, SCS.com Staff Writer
Well, congratulations to you. You've made it through yet another week of work unscathed and ready to soak in yet another weekend of college football. You beat the Wednesday, Hump-day doldrums and have emerged victorious. Tomorrow, wives, girlfriends, children, gardening, and in some cases even personal hygiene will be neglected. It's time for some football! As we head into the third week of this young but eventful football....[MORE]

SCS.comSOUTHERN SHOWDOWNS, NEW HEISMAN LEADER
September 14, 2005
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Certainly one of the best weeks in college football history just passed us by last weekend. All of the best games lived up to the hype, such as Georgia defending the home turf against Spurrier's Gamecocks, Notre Dame establishing itself as a national power in Charlie Weis's first year by winning in Ann Arbor, and Texas squeaking past Ohio State in possibly the best game we will see until November. If you had the privilege....[MORE]

By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Tennessee and Florida go head to head this weekend in Gainesville to renew the annual showdown between the Vols and Gators. For the second time in four seasons, a new coach will be on the sideline for UF. In contrast, Phil Fulmer will be making his fourteenth regular season appearance against his biggest SEC East rival. After hanging on a for a win over UAB in week one, the Volunteers took last weekend off....[MORE]

Texas QB Vince Young led the Longhorns to a huge road win at Ohio State Saturday evening and has been named the SCS.com National Player of the Week. Elsewhere, the LSU Tigers got their minds off of Hurricane Katrina and hit the field Saturday night in Tempe, scoring a late touchdown to pick up the victory over Arizona State. TCU, who knocked off Oklahoma in Norman a week ago, was upset by rival SMU 21-10 Saturday.....[MORE]

SCS.comGATOR GIRL KEEPS LEAD AFTER WEEK TWO
September 11, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Gator Girl's lead atop the SCS.com Pick 'Em Contest shrunk from five points to just two this week as theywood, currently in second place, led all pickers last week by racking up 138 total points on the weekend. Greech and Nashoba round out the top four in the overall standings. Fourteen players are within twenty points of the leader, and thirty-five have accumulated over 200 points during the first two weekends....[MORE]

SCS.comWHAT'S UP OUT WEST
September 9, 2005
By Jeremy, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Pac-10 conference got off to a good start to ring in the 2005 football season over the weekend. Prevailing with a 7-2 record, including road victories by USC at Hawaii, UCLA at SDSU, and Oregon at Houston, the level of play in the conference overall looks better than last season. Only Stanford didn't play, and the two teams that fell lost on the road. Washington played in Seattle amongst most of its own fans but....[MORE]

SCS.comBIG WEEK IN THE BIG TEN
September 7, 2005
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
After a great opening week of college football, some true tests of college football power will come this week. With Illinois's great comeback over Rutgers and eight relatively easy wins over MAC teams, the Big Ten started the season 10-0 as a whole. I was happy to see the MAC and the Big Ten agree to play each other more in the next few years when schedules move toward twelve games instead of eleven, as the....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEKEND PREVIEW
September 7, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Texas and Ohio State get together Saturday evening in the country's first really big non-conference game of the 2005 college football season. Both squads are favorites in their respective leagues and legitimate national title contenders. Longhorn coach Mac Brown has had a reputation for failing to win the big game, and this is about as big as they get early in the season. Texas has been ranked in the top five by nearly every....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE WEEKEND'S BEST
September 6, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
As predicted by SCS.com last week, Georgia Tech went into Auburn and picked up a huge season-opening win over the Tigers, ending AU's winning streak before it could regain momentum in 2005. In a much bigger upset, TCU took down Oklahoma in Norman on Saturday. Though Falcon QB Omar Jacobs was fabulous, Wisconsin RB Brian Calhoun, a Colorado transfer, was able to lead the Badgers to a huge win over Bowling Green....[MORE]

September 5, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor

She picked just two games wrong on the weekend, taking Oklahoma over TCU and Auburn over Georgia Tech. With 141 points, she leads by five over theywood and by a half-dozen over Greech. Four more contestants scored at least 130 points, and everyone piled up triple-digits in the first weekend of the 2005 season....[MORE]

SCS.comHOW THE WEST WILL BE WON
September 1, 2005
By Jeremy, SCS.com Staff Writer
Comedian Robert Orben once said, "Spring is God's way of saying, 'one more time!'" To a college football fan, the fall seems more of an appropriate time to think of renewal, refreshing, and another chance for some teams. Finally, it's time for rivalries to be revisited, fresh controversies to arise, and old smack to be thrown out for new. Out west, new rivalries will be created as conference realignment....[MORE]

SCS.comA LOOK AT THE SEASON'S TOP GAMES
September 1, 2005
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
This article gets the dubious distinction of being my first for this season while also not being a preview for any conference or a review of news from the week of games. I know many people cannot wait for Thursday night or Saturday when their favorite teams take the field for the first time this season, including myself. Despite the focus of this article series being the eastern conferences, I have decided to offer some.....[MORE]
