Tagline Sports FBS Top 25 Preseason 2019

Just as quick as the sun set on Santa Clara for the Alabama Crimson Tide, the sun rises on another College Football Season, with defending champion Clemson looking to to once again show why they deserve to be on top.  But with an ever changing landscape, college football never has a dull moment.  Perhaps the biggest change will come near the top, with Ohio State needing to fill the holes left by Urban Meyer and Dwayne Haskins; will Ryan Day and Justin Fields be the answer in Columbus?  Meanwhile, in Norman, the Sooners will once again have a transfer quarterback at the helm, with Jalen Hurts swapping one crimson jersey for another.  Can Lincoln Riley make another star in the center of the country as he did with Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray?  As for their rivals one state south, Texas put a statement finish on their season with a win over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl – now its Sam Ehlinger’s time to put up and push the Longhorns forward.

Mountaineer Magic in the Fun Belt

The Mountaineers have been hot this year! No… not those Mountaineers from the Big 12, the Mountaineers of the Sun Belt.  Calling Kidd Brewer Stadium in Boone, North Carolina their home, the Mountaineers of Appalachian State have been on a roll this season, allowing just 32 points in their last four games, and not allowing a single point in the second half to teams since their OT loss at Penn State week one – no other team can say that.  And we haven’t even talked a bit about any of their players.

White Out Wonders

Beaver Stadium_2016_White Out Game

White.  Nothing like it.  Pure, clean, loud, busy, random, raucous, 31-10, 4OT, super reliable from inside 40.  Moments that can only be described by two words: White Out.

This Saturday, one team steps into a house where every thought is blocked out by white noise.  Where ever fan is clad in one color, a sea – no an ocean – of white.  A place where the team from Columbus was the first victim to go down under the lights of white at Beaver Stadium in 2005.  A place where they were rocked from No. 2 just two years ago.
