Miami's turnover chain is one of the most popular or best creations from college football's 2017 season.   Considering how popular the chain is, it's no surprise other programs have attempted to put their own spin on Miami's variation.    In Saturday's game against Arizona, Oregon showcased its version of the turnover chain, which features the "O" logo.    Up 7, the chain is coming out. Nice, Oregon lmao pic.twitter.com/yjsTSf298j — aadlt...

NC State Wolfpack vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons Preview and Prediction

posted on November 17, 2017
NC State won’t be going to the ACC Championship Game for the first time, but the Wolfpack have a chance to finish the season strong and hold out hope for a 10-win season. After a hard-fought 17-14 win over Boston College last week, NC State will hit the road for the final time this season on Saturday.   The No. 19 Wolfpack (7-3, 5-1 ACC) won’t have to go far as they head to Winston-Salem to take on Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons (6-4, 3-3) became bowl eligible for a second...

Air Force Falcons vs. Boise State Broncos Preview and Prediction

posted on November 17, 2017
The Boise State Broncos overcame a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit at Colorado State last week, and escaped with a 59-52 overtime victory to remain the only undefeated team in Mountain West Conference play. As a result, the Broncos (8-2, 6-0 MW) in conference, have an opportunity to wrap up the Mountain Division title Saturday against Air Force. A victory over the Falcons would secure Boise State its first conference championship game appearance since 2014 — but it won’t come easy....

Nevada Wolf Pack vs. San Diego State Aztecs Preview and Prediction

posted on November 17, 2017
A two-game, mid-season hiccup likely ended San Diego State’s two-year run as Mountain West champions, and dashed the team’s hopes of a New Year’s Six bowl game. But the Aztecs (8-2, 4-2 MW) have won back-to-back games, leaving them with an outside shot to win the West Division for the third consecutive year.   Both Boise State and Fresno State upset the Aztecs at home in October, giving the Bulldogs the tiebreaker in the division standings as well as an outright lead. Should...

Utah Utes vs. Washington Huskies Preview and Prediction

posted on November 17, 2017
A road loss at Stanford last week complicated the path to a Pac-12 championship repeat for the Washington Huskies.   Chris Petersen's team now sits tied in the loss column with Stanford and Washington State. The Huskies get rival Washington State in next week's Apple Cup, but the Dawgs need help from Cal to unseat a Stanford bunch that owns the North division tiebreaker.   Of course, all that is moot if Utah can spring a monumental upset, which is what the Utes might need to...

Texas A&M Aggies vs. Ole Miss Rebels Preview and Prediction

posted on November 17, 2017
College football fans tuning in on Saturday to see the showdown in Oxford between the Texas A&M Aggies (6-4, 3-3 SEC) and the Ole Miss Rebels (5-5, 2-4) are in for a rare SEC treat. In a conference known for tough defenses, the SEC West foes are more likely to produce an old-fashioned, Western Athletic Conference-style shootout where the last team with the ball could be driving for the win.   Texas A&M beating up on New Mexico 55-14 last week in College Station proves very little in the SEC...

Arizona Wildcats vs. Oregon Ducks Preview and Prediction

posted on November 17, 2017
In 2014, Arizona and Oregon faced off in the Pac-12 Championship Game. Just two seasons later, both the Wildcats and Ducks hit their worst lows in quite some time, with Arizona sputtering to a 3-9 finish, and Oregon going 4-8.   Things changed for both programs between the 2016 and '17 season. At Oregon, Mark Helfrich was let go and Willie Taggart was hired. His arrival and assembly of a staff that includes defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt reinvigorated the burgeoning powerhouse, and...

Missouri Tigers vs. Vanderbilt Commodores Preview and Prediction

posted on November 17, 2017
The Vanderbilt Commodores (4-6, 0-6 SEC) will host the Missouri Tigers (5-5, 2-4 SEC) on Saturday night in a matchup between two SEC East teams clearly headed in opposite directions. Barry Odom’s Tigers have now won four games in a row, highlighted by last Saturday’s 50-17 blowout victory over Tennessee. Even more impressive is the 37-point margin of victory Missouri has averaged during its current winning streak. If the Tigers can keep things rolling, Missouri will become bowl...

California Golden Bears vs. Stanford Cardinal Preview and Prediction

posted on November 17, 2017
One of the nation's oldest and fiercest rivalries will be renewed again this weekend when Stanford and California meet in the 120th edition of the Big Game.   The No. 22 Cardinal (7-3, 6-2 Pac-12) have dominated the rivalry over the past decade, winning seven in a row against the Bears and eight times in the past 10 seasons. Stanford seems well-equipped to keep it going, coming into the game with a scoring defense (21.4 ppg) that ranks second in the Pac-12.   California (5-5,...
