Maryland announced Monday that it was accepting an invitation to join the Big Ten conference. Rutgers is expected to make a similar announcement on Tuesday. So, for those keeping track at home, the Big Ten will have 14 teams, the Big 12 has 10, and San Diego State will be in the Big East. Got it?
Here's more on the Big Ten announcement as well as some other news and notes from around college football:
Just when you think you’ve got things figured out in college football, anarchy rears its ugly head and reminds you who’s in control. Never was that more true than this week when the top two teams in the country both went down to defeat. The door is now wide open for Notre Dame and the SEC champion to meet in the national championship game. But if the last two weeks have taught us anything, the top of the polls can be a very scary place to be.
Here are all the highlights from this week in the Top 25. Let chaos reign.
We’re down to the home stretch of the regular season, with most teams having just two games remaining. There aren't many big games this week, with only two top 25 matchups and five ranked SEC schools dropping down to play FCS teams. But there is still some action this week that could shake up conference-title races. #1 Oregon faces a ranked team and #2 Kansas State hits the road against one of the nation’s top offenses. Hey, after last week, anything’s possible.
Here is what to watch for this week in the top 25:
Champions from non-automatic-qualifier conferences will now have the chance to earn a spot in one of six BCS bowl games, according to a new agreement announced Monday. Under the terms of the deal, the highest-ranked champion from the "Group of Five" non-automatic conferences (Big East, Conference USA, MAC, Mountain West and Sun Belt) will be guaranteed a spot in a BCS bowl game.
Texas A&M threw college football for a loop, pulling off the biggest upset of the season and, at least for the time being, knocking the SEC out of the national title picture. But that was far from the only excitement this week in college football.
It was another crazy weekend in college football with Alabama and Notre Dame needing last minute rallies to survive, Oregon and USC giving us a PAC-12 shootout for the ages and the Heisman frontrunner leaving with an injury.
Here are all the highlights from an exciting weekend in the Top 25.
Last week's showdowns knocked several teams from the ranks of the unbeaten and shook up the rankings. This week, we get two of the biggest games of the season, with Alabama-LSU and Oregon-USC setting the stage for conference- and national-championship runs.
But the excitement doesn't stop there. Here is what to watch for around the top 25:
This week’s rankings will look very different when the new AP Poll comes out following a Saturday full of upsets. Four Top Ten teams fell this week and five ranked teams suffered their first losses of the season. Meanwhile, Collin Klein and Manti T’eo boosted their Heisman chances while Alabama, Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame continued to make their case for a shot in the national title game.
Here are all highlights from a wild week in college football.
