SCS.comWEEK #10: BIG EAST TAKES THE LIMELIGHT
October 31, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
A huge shift in the national title picture took place this past week as the USC Trojans were upset at Oregon State, 33-31. The loss by the Trojans reduces the number of undefeated teams remaining to six and further scrambles the BCS picture as the season heads into November. Numerous other top ten teams had struggles on Saturday as well, further emphasizing how wide open the national title race remains at this point....[MORE]

SCS.comUSC'S LOSS A WIN FOR THE BIG EAST, OTHERS
October 31, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
Did you happen to see a gigantic upset this weekend that affected several top 15 teams, an upset that exposed a team that should not even be in the top 10? If you answered yes, congratulations! You and the rest of the BCS hopefuls are the big winners. However, there were losers to be found as well. It is hard to believe that this is only USC's third loss in their last 53 games. It was a huge upset for Oregon State, and for the rest....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW: THE LOW-MAJORS
October 30, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
Breaking up the lower conferences into groups is always a source of controversy. However, in order to make the preview more organized, we at SCS.com decided to have a low-major group and a mid-major group. In actuality, it is not all that hard. The mid-major conferences are the ones that usually have a chance to send multiple teams to the Big Dance, while the low-majors are one-bid leagues. This season, there are....[MORE]

SCS.comRECAPPING ANOTHER WILD WEEK OF FOOTBALL
October 29, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
In a wild, wild weekend filled with upsets and disappointments, the college football world was turned on end as USC finally went down for the first time since 2003 as the Oregon State Beavers came away with a stunning unset. Elsewhere, Michigan State continued to slide after getting thrashed by Indiana, Texas survived an upset bid by Texas Tech, and Oklahoma State was able to knock off the Nebraska Cornhuskers in a thrilling....[MORE]

SCS.comWHAT 2 WATCH 4: ROAD TESTS, NON-BCS
October 27, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The 2006 calendar is just one college football weekend away from changing over to the month of November, a fact made obvious by the growing intensity of the action on the field and the increasingly inclement weather making its presence known all across the country. Whether you'll be spending the weekend in a raucous stadium or in your home dodging the chilly temps, there are a number of things to keep an eye on....[MORE]

SCS.comWHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE LITTLE GUYS?
October 26, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
The BCS expanded to five games this year, with one of the main reasons being to make more opportunities for non-BCS schools to get into the big games. Six conference champions and a good Notre Dame team used to leave one at-large spot for non-BCS schools to try and grab, and they were up against the best non-champion school of the BCS conferences, which effectively shut out the non-BCS leagues. Now there are....[MORE]

SCS.comWEANING MYSELF FROM OSU-MICHIGAN
October 26, 2006
By Ethan, SCS.com Staff Writer
Iím making a promise to myself, to my fellow SCS.com staff members, and all the loyal readers of this site. That promise? That I wonít talk about Ohio State in this column for at least two weeks. Then, after that, all bets are off. So in that completely selfless vein, Iíve compiled a list of random thoughts concerning the upcoming week of college football as my strange tastes have seen fit. And to your unfettered delight, there are....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK #9: SEC CONTEST TAKES THE STAGE
October 25, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The top portion of the collegiate landscape did not shift much this past weekend as the top schools all came away victorious. The seven remaining unbeaten teams continued on their journey as they all came away with wins in impressive fashion, setting up what looks to be a great November. Looking at the upcoming week, there are no games between two national title contenders on the schedule, but as always, several key....[MORE]

SCS.comSHOULD THE NCAA TOURNAMENT EXPAND?
October 24, 2006
By Ben, SCS.com Guest Writer
Over the summer, the NCAA basketball tournament committee met to discuss the possibility of increasing the number of teams they accept to their annual, highly-anticipated menís college basketball tournament. While the decision was overwhelmingly in favor of keeping the number of teams at 65, it will only be kept this way for at least another year, when the committee will most likely vote again on whether or not to....[MORE]

SCS.comCLOSE CALLS RATTLE ONE-LOSS TEAMS
October 23, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
Yes, I will admit it. I got caught up in the "when will USC lose" talk. That is my job. However, Texas, Cal, Tennessee, and Notre Dame all overlooked their opponents last Saturday. It is hard to blame Texas. They played a good Nebraska team, whose only losses are to Southern Cal and now Texas this year. It was cold and snowy as the Horns overcame kicking woes and won the game 22-20. Cal did not overlook....[MORE]

SCS.comREVIEWING WEEK #8
October 22, 2006
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
In what was yet another stellar week for college football, comebacks were aplenty as many teams that appeared to be walking away with a loss came storming back to win in the waning moments. Tennessee came back despite a less-than-spectacular performance by Erik Ainge, while Michigan State pulled its tail from between its legs long enough to pull off the greatest comeback in NCAA history after trailing 38-3....[MORE]

SCS.comW2W4: TITLE PREVIEWS, SEARCH FOR SIX
October 20, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Yet another weekend of college football action is upon us, and can you believe that the regular season is already halfway complete? That's right, one more weekend and the month of October will be toast. Hard to believe, yet that's where we stand as more than a dozen teams have already clinched win number six this fall while about a dozen more look to put their name in that hat this weekend. Other things to watch....[MORE]

SCS.comLESS THAN A MONTH UNTIL 'CHRISTMAS'
October 19, 2006
By Ethan, SCS.com Staff Writer
Another night up, ďburning the midnight oilĒ as it were, brings me to a number of thoughts about the college football season. But none are more exciting than the prospect of an undefeated Ohio State-Michigan game in November. Iíll admit, Iím from Ohio, and sometime my regional preferences will come out in my columns. Unfortunately, this one is no different. So, in that vein, hereís an attempt to get the rest....[MORE]

SCS.comDOLING OUT PUNISHMENT: THE BRAWL
October 19, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
When looking at the schedule of games last weekend, Miami hosting winless Florida International looked like one of the few games completely not worth watching, as both teams were unranked, the game was out-of-conference, and Miami was undoubtedly going to pound the in-state smaller school on the home turf. Little did anyone know that the pounding Miami gave to FIU would have nothing to do with football. After scoring....[MORE]

SCS.comUPSETS, INJURIES TURN SEASONS AROUND
October 18, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
The BCS standings revealed themselves for the first time this year, and Ohio State was out in front by a small margin over Southern Cal and Michigan. All three teams control their own destiny because OSU and UM will play in late November. However, all three teams must win out to keep their national title hopes alive. Ohio State has the easiest road, with the four worst Big Ten teams left before Michigan. UM has a....[MORE]

SCS.comPREVIEWING COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK #8
October 17, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The national championship deck was shuffled again this past weekend as Florida was knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten by a re-energized Auburn squad. With UF and Missouri falling, there are seven unbeaten teams remaining, and the list continues to be shortened with every week of action. Looking ahead to week #8, there are no clear matchups between national title contenders this weekend, but numerous contests....[MORE]

SCS.comW2W4: REBOUNDING, ROAD TESTS, AND MORE
October 13, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The number of unbeatens in college football was dramatically reduced last weekend, so how will those one-loss squads respond the Saturday after? Meanwhile, some of those still without a loss will face tough road tests this weekend, so will they continue the streak or go the way of those mentioned above? And what will happen in the Big Ten and CUSA races this weekend? There are a number of crucial matchups....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE MARCH OF THE UNDEFEATED TEAMS
October 12, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
The goal: twelve wins and zero losses. Easier said than done with the parity in modern college football. In case you were too busy watching the baseball playoffs, the college football season has reached the critical half-way point. With the first BCS standings looming after this weekend and undefeated teams disappearing rapidly, now is an appropriate time to analyze the handful of teams that can still run the gauntlet....[MORE]

SCS.comTOP TEAMS LED BY GAME'S BEST COACHES
October 12, 2006
By Ethan, SCS.com Staff Writer
With some monumental matchups already played and a number of season-making (or breaking) games coming up, one thing stands out for the programs that are still in the hunt for a national championship: great coaching. Now that weíre at the halfway point of the season and the haves and the have-nots have had ample time to separate themselves from each other, it comes as no surprise that some very familiar coaching....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK #7: PREVIEWING THE KEY MATCHUPS
October 11, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
We have reached the half-way point of the season, and it seems that every week the national title contenders are being shuffled around in the deck. The top game of week #7 has Florida needing to put their huge win behind them immediately to take on a frustrated Auburn team that saw its national title aspirations flattened versus Arkansas. There are not a great deal of top 25 matchups on the schedule, but numerous key conference....[MORE]

SCS.comBCS PICTURE BECOMES JUST A BIT CLEARER
October 10, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
Six weeks into the season, the bowl picture is starting to become more clear. Many things will change in the upcoming weeks, but take a moment to bask in the clarity. Are you done yet? Take your time. While you are resting, I will get you caught up on the week that was. If you did not hear, North Texas and Florida International played in a record-tying seven overtime game. North Texas won the contest 25-22....[MORE]

SCS.comWHAT 2 WATCH 4: SHOOTOUT, SEC, UNBEATENS
October 6, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The Red River Shootout is always an important game, but it may be even bigger in 2006. Why? Because this weekend's loser will remove themselves from the national title chase. That's just one thing to keep an eye on throughout the upcoming weekend. Also watch to see how the SEC's big games turn out as LSU visits Florida and Georgia plays host to Tennessee. The Gators and Bulldogs are just two of several undefeated....[MORE]

SCS.comFRONTRUNNERS EMERGE AS BIG GAMES RETURN
October 5, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
On a cold night in Iowa City, the frontrunner for the national title proved for the third time in four weeks that they belong as the top team of college football. The home Hawkeyes had a crazy electric fan base, a night home game, an established senior leader at quarterback, and a streak of 25 out of 26 straight victories at home, including a 33-7 slaughter of the team across the field two years ago. That was not enough....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK #6: SEC TITANS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
October 3, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
Looking ahead to week #6, this appears to be a round robin tournament in SEC play, as the top contenders will battle it out for conference supremacy in a great Saturday of action. After the SEC slate of games, the current top four ranked Pac-10 teams will go head-to-head to set up the conference pecking order out west for the remainder of the season. Overall, this looks to be a great weekend of action as numerous games between....[MORE]

SCS.comRICE HEATS UP WITH HEART-WARMING STORY

By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
Freshman defensive back Dale Lloyd had a long life ahead of him. The 19-year-old Lloyd collapsed during a light workout on September 24th and was pronounced dead the following day at 8:49 AM. Lloyd's family and Rice University were stricken with grief. As to whether winless Rice was going to travel to Army, the verdict was initially undecided.

SCS.comTHE WEEK THAT WAS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL
October 1, 2006
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
Week five was a good week in the college football world. Many teams experienced the agony of defeat, while just as many experienced the euphoria of victory as the season took another step toward the national championship. Rivalries were won and lost, and seasons took both steps up and back. Houston tested Miami, and QB Kevin Kolb once again showed the nation what he can do. Nebraska needed overtime to take out....[MORE]
