  • Luck, destiny, fate ... and more
    November 16, 2013, 10:33 PM EST
    Sure, Auburn's game-winning touchdown against Georgia was a fluke. But the Tigers' success this season is based on something very real.
  • Winston case should be private matter
    November 15, 2013, 12:16 PM EST
    The most important things here are fairness and justice. But for the woman who says she was sexually assaulted last year and for Jameis Winston those things are almost lost already.
  • Huskies live in the Land of Almost
    November 14, 2013, 3:58 AM EST
    Northern Illinois is just about there ... but will it ever truly arrive?
  • 'Bama hums, Saban almost human
    November 10, 2013, 3:06 AM EST
    After No. 1 Alabama beat rival LSU on Saturday, Nick Saban ran over to his quarterback, AJ McCarron, and jumped into his arms. Yes, Saban was showing his human side.
  • Baylor seizes its big moment
    November 08, 2013, 2:41 AM EST
    It doesn't seem natural to think of Baylor being involved in the national title picture, but with Thursday's win over Oklahoma, the Bears showed they belong there.
  • How good is OSU? Big Ten no gauge
    November 02, 2013, 6:31 PM EDT
    It looks as if Ohio State is beating up on the Big Ten, but that's actually backward. The truth is this: The Big Ten is killing Ohio State. The Buckeyes can't win in this conference. They beat Purdue 56-0 Saturday, and this just happened to be one of those moments when a 56-0 win actually is a loss.
  • Famous Jameis? You wouldn't know it
    November 01, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT
  • Fisher staying above the BCS fray
    October 28, 2013, 11:58 PM EDT
    Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher knows his team may get the short end of the stick in the BCS standings. But he's not going to play politics.
  • Ducks pile up BCS style points
    October 27, 2013, 2:12 AM EDT
    Oregon most likely scored enough style points Saturday to move into position for the national championship game. The Ducks' 42-14 win over No. 12 UCLA was better than Florida State's win over lowly North Carolina State.And only one of them can play Alabama for the title. So the BCS is set up perfectly, predestined maybe, for one last memorable, colossal, goodbye mess-up, likely leaving Florida State out of the title game, the final victim.
  • More proof that NCAA is powerless
    October 22, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT
    Remember when people thought of the NCAA as a dictator, doling out penalties that were too tough? Now, when it thinks it has the ultimate criminal in Miami, it hardly does anything.
  • FSU's Winston wise beyond his years
    October 20, 2013, 3:33 AM EDT
    Young college quarterbacks don't need time to develop anymore in college football. Florida State's Jameis Winston showed they can show up with mature games, ready to go.
  • This time, Clemson ready for moment
    October 18, 2013, 8:07 PM EDT
    Despite the Tigers' reputation for choking in the spotlight, FOX Sports College Football Insider Greg Couch says Clemson has learned from past failures.
  • New playoffs won't solve old problems
    October 16, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT
    The idea was to get the yelling to stop and the credibility to rise (in addition to getting the revenues to multiply). But the first time anyone gave any thought to the new College Football Playoff system, it was to yell about credibility.
  • Fire Brown? Not after this Texas win!
    October 12, 2013, 9:52 PM EDT
    Texas coach Mack Brown scored a big win over Oklahoma on Saturday ... and also over the forces trying to oust him.
  • Louisville wins game, loses aura
    October 11, 2013, 1:55 AM EDT
    Louisville was looking much better before anyone saw it. It was better as fiction than fact. But the truth is that there is too much information, there are too many networks, for a myth to survive. The Louisville myth died Thursday night, though the Cardinals won 24-10.
  • Clowney's season mystifying to watch
    October 10, 2013, 5:00 AM EDT
    After big-ticket plays, two high-profile players reacted differently. Johnny Manziel partied; Jadeveon Clowney has decided to lie down for a while.
