Week 6 Heisman Top 10: Lamar Jackson Still on Top

Despite losing Week 5 in an instant classic at Clemson, Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson remains a unanimous No. 1 in the CFB Huddle Heisman Top 10 forecast. Every media outlet publishing its voters' rankings after Week 5 tabbed Lamar Jackson for the top spot, with second billing typically falling to his ACC counterpart, Deshaun Watson.…

Heisman Top 10 Week 4: Lamar Jackson’s World

Interesting tidbits from the Heisman Top 10, as the wild fluctuation customary of this time of year produced new names in the Week 4 rankings: • Publications that ranked Greg Ward Jr. also ranked Donnel Pumphrey. Publications that spurned one spurned both. Group of Five bias is a real thing, it would seem. • All…

Heisman Top 10: Big 12 Heisman Contenders

Since the conference's formation two decades ago, the amount of Big 12 Heisman winners (5) trails only the SEC (6). However, we approach the fifth year since a Big 12 Heisman candidate last hoisted the hardware; the longest drought in the league's history.

Bowl Preview Bonanza Part V: Halfway Home

When we last left off, the CFB Huddle Bowl Preview Bonanza dangled from thr proverbial cliff. Part IV began with the first of the four-game Tuesday slate, but ended there. That's because the Armed Forces Bowl marks the exact midway point of the bowl season, thus making for a natural time to take an intermission.…

If You Didn’t Already Feel Like A Slacker, Here Comes Lincoln Riley

Four Downs on Week 9: End-of-Game Madness, Playoff Upheaval

I love this sport. It never ceases to amaze me how just about every Saturday in the fall, I'm left incredulous by at least one moment, game or performance. So much of the residual activity surrounding college football is exhausting. Some NCAA regulations are archaic, the modern concept of amateurism evolves at a glacial pace…

September Superlatives: Leonard Fournette, Jeremy Cash Shine

A month of the 2015 campaign is complete, and it went by faster than a Leonard Fournette touchdown run. College football's season is the shortest of any major sport's, and September's end is a harsh reminder. We're now a third through the season, when it seems just yesterday Montana and North Dakota State were just…
