SCS.comBCS KICKS OFF WITH MOST COMPELLING GAMES
December 31, 2010
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Although Rose Bowl officials would love to have Stanford and Wisconsin, bringing the Horned Frogs in may give the Rose Bowl the best team in the country to face their stiffest test of the season. TCU capped their second-straight undefeated regular season by surviving a scare against San Diego State and will not have the jitters that plagued their first BCS appearance in a loss against Boise State in last year's Fiesta Bowl....[MORE]

SCS.comNEW YEAR'S: THE BIG TEN/SEC INVITATIONAL
December 30, 2010
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
The only Big Ten team to miss out on playing the SEC during these early New Year's Day bowl games are the Northwestern Wildcats, who will certainly miss their MVP, QB Dan Persa, who was lost for the season in the tenth game. Freshman Evan Watkins started the final two games of the season and struggled, although the offensive line was a mixed bag for Persa all season even before the inexperienced freshman....[MORE]

SCS.comNYE BOWLS HIGHLIGHT TEAMS ON THE RISE
December 30, 2010
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
If you are a fan of offensive powerhouses, this will not be the game for you. However, South Florida and Clemson will bring two tough defenses into Charlotte for what appears to be an even match up. The major question coming into this game for the Bulls is whether two-year starting quarterback B.J. Daniels will be healthy enough to start. Walk-on QB Bobby Eveld played against Miami and Connecticut, but the Bulls....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE EARLY SEASON UNDERACHIEVERS
December 29, 2010
By Mike, SCS.com Staff Writer
The college basketball season is nearly half over as conference play begins. Duke, Ohio State, Kansas and Syracuse seem to be strong Final Four contenders while upstart programs like San Diego State and UCF seem to be on the verge of making a name from themselves. Last week, I talked about the little-known programs that seem to be on the rise as legitimate teams to watch. But for every pleasant surprise....[MORE]

SCS.comMAJOR CONFERENCES TAKE THE STAGE
December 29, 2010
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Armed Forces Bowl features two more teams coming back to winning ways after long droughts of losing seasons. Like the other service academies, Army runs the triple option and the fullback is the biggest threat in that system. For the Golden Knights, that FB is Jarden Hassin, who may break 1000 yards on the season in this game. QB Trent Steelman is the second-leading rusher but has proven to be an adequate....[MORE]

SCS.comBOWL SEASON RAMPS UP AFTER CHRISTMAS
December 28, 2010
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Champs Sports Bowl features a match up of team which missed out on a BCS bowl in the final weekend of the regular season. West Virginia has strengthened their defense under coach Bill Stewart to one of the best in the country, although that will not save Stewart's job. Considering Stewart is coming back for one final season in 2011, the announcement of his eventual firing should have no adverse effect on the....[MORE]

SCS.comCONFERENCE PLAY BRINGS BIG EAST BATTLE
December 27, 2010
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
After shocking the college basketball universe by winning the Maui Invitational in November, Connecticut has rode the momentum all the way to the fourth spot in the polls. The Huskies havenít played anyone since beating Wichita State, Michigan State and Kentucky on the island, but that hasnít stopped Kemba Walker from continuing his tear. Heís averaging more than 26 points per game, but that pace canít continue....[MORE]

SCS.comUCF HEADLINES LIST OF TEAMS TO WATCH
December 22, 2010
By Mike, SCS.com Staff Writer
Weíre just over a month into the College Basketball season and there are several teams that are off to great starts that few people know about. There are only nine remaining unbeaten teams, but some of these names are not so familiar. UCF out of Conference USA is ranked in the top 25 giving the conference one more ranked team than the ACC. UCF has in-state wins over both Florida and Miami on neutral courts....[MORE]

SCS.comBRAGGIN' RIGHTS HEADLINES WEEK
December 21, 2010
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
Itís Christmas time, which means itís another edition of the Bragginí Rights game in St. Louis between two border states. This game will have the feel of a Sweet 16 or Elite Eight match-up, but both teams have their own set of problems right now. Missouri point guard Mike Dixon has missed the past two games due to suspension, and coach Mike Anderson hasnít decided whether heíll play yet. To make matters worse, his backup....[MORE]

SCS.comUNWRAPPING THE CHRISTMAS WEEK BOWLS
December 20, 2010
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
After three relative blowouts to start the bowl season, the first full week of bowl games is led by a battle of contrasting styles. Southern Miss has lived and died by how many points they could score this season, as the defense struggled even before being decimated by losing three starters in a nightclub shootout in November. However, the Golden Eagles defense might find the going a bit easier against Louisville....[MORE]

SCS.comBOWL SEASON BEGINS WITH A TRIPLEHEADER
December 18, 2010
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
After a short two week respite from college football (less if you watched Army-Navy or the FCS playoffs), bowl season arrives today with three games. Even if you never get a chance to follow some of the non-BCS conferences during the regular season, this Saturday is an opportunity to see some good teams leading those lesser known conferences. Without further ado, let the previews begin! Although excitement might....[MORE]

SCS.comOHIO STATE IS NATION'S MOST COMPLETE TEAM
December 15, 2010
By Mike, SCS.com Staff Writer
There is much talk that top-ranked Duke could possibly run the table this year. Donít get me wrong; I think this yearís Blue Devils are even better than the team that won the National Championship back in March, but Duke will not complete a perfect season or even come close. Thus far Duke may have very well been the best team in the country. The most complete team in the country however, plays its home games in Columbus....[MORE]

SCS.comFINALS RESULT IN A SLOW WEEK OF HOOPS
December 13, 2010
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
Itís December. I know that. But is this a must-win for Floridaís program? Itís not even just about this particular 2010-2011 team. Itís about the past three years; following up two straight NCAA titles with two NIT berths and a 10-seed in the tourney. Floridaís played poorly this year after entering with such high expectations. It must win this weekend. First, Oakland lost at West Virginia by 24. Then to Purdue by 15, Illinois by 11....[MORE]

SCS.comDOES TCU'S ARRIVAL HURT BIG EAST HOOPS?
December 8, 2010
By Mike, SCS.com Staff Writer
There is little doubt that Texas Christian Universityís recent move to the Big East will help the Horned Frogs significantly. On the football field, TCU will be competing in a second consecutive BCS bowl; the Horned Frogs reached baseballís College World Series this past summer and following next season, TCU will dump the Mountain West conference for the Big East. While TCU will add credibility to a highly scrutinized BCS football....[MORE]

SCS.comBOWL MATCHUPS AND WHERE WE WENT WRONG
December 7, 2010
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Just like hanging stockings and putting ornaments on the Christmas tree, every December brings us a slate of college football bowl match ups with tons of intrigue and fun. And much like ornaments, there's usually too many bowls and some weird pairings to digest. Most projections had Iowa or Michigan playing Nebraska after their loss to Oklahoma, but thankfully the bowl officials did not torture us with what will be an annual....[MORE]

SCS.comSYRACUSE LOOKING TO ANSWER CRITICS
December 6, 2010
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
So weíre already starting to hear the talk that Duke could finish the 2010-11 season undefeated. Let me make this simple for you: it wonít happen. It hasnít happened since 1976, and itíd take one heck of a team to accomplish the feat. UNLV was close in 1991ósome say that was the best team to ever take the floor. Remember this same discussion about North Carolina in 2008? Not even close. Dukeís great and all....[MORE]

SCS.comUNTANGLING CONFERENCE TITLE, BCS MESS
December 2, 2010
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
This week is Championship Weekend, where every conference lucky enough to have a championship game will pit the best of their divisions in head-to-head combat for BCS or premiere bowl berths. From the SEC to the MAC, there's a lot to enjoy this weekend. However, there is one conference done with play except for one team's final non-conference game and that conference race is a pure mess. Following....[MORE]

SCS.comBUBBLE TEAMS HAVE MOST TO GAIN EARLY ON
December 1, 2010
By Mike, SCS.com Staff Writer
Like most College Basketball fans, I enjoy watching the pre-season tournaments around the holidays. Whether it be the Maui Invitational, the Pre-Season NIT, the Old Spice Classic or even the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, we get a lot of match-ups that we donít normally get to see until the NCAA Tournament. Not only are there contests between teams from different parts of the country, but we often see powerhouses match up....[MORE]
