Looking back at what happened in Michigan's 21-7 win at Michigan State, and a look ahead toward a bye week. What we learned vs. MSU Big Ten's No. 1 U-M will enter its bye week as the only team in the Big Ten without a conference loss, which means the Wolverines are in sole possession of first place in the Big Ten East with four games to go. Ohio State's collapse at Purdue gives the Wolverines ...

The Red River Showdown has pretty much always been a big deal, a great rivalry with a State Fair backdrop and a split-down-the-middle Cotton Bowl. "Everybody knows what this game means," Texas defensive end Charles Omenihu said. Now it's back to being relevant on the national stage, something that had been lacking this decade. No. 7 Oklahoma (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) and No. 19 Texas (4-1, 2-0) are ...

Finally, it's college football Week 1! Technically, the season started last weekend, which I guess was Week 0? They'd play games in July if they thought they could make money off the sick souls who'd watch, a group that definitely includes me.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - I was watching a national college football preview show, which was focusing on the Big Ten. They started off talking about the controversy at Ohio State, which made sense.

And the committee made it clear why: because the Bulldogs had chosen to schedule a tough game at Notre Dame - and won. Georgia doesn't have such a marquee game on its nonconference schedule this season. Far from it, in fact. The Bulldogs play eight SEC games and Georgia Tech ...

ATHENS, Ga. - There seems to be some confusion about the University of Georgia's greater mission. "We are OLB University," Bulldogs OLB (outside linebacker) D'Andre Walker said. "Georgia is known as RBU (Running Back U)," said Elijah Holyfield, who is, oddly enough, a Bulldogs running back. Some may point to the university's reputation in the arts, letters and sciences as being important, too. ...

College football starts in less than a month. Practice does, anyway. Games begin at the end of August, which will arrive sooner than any of us want. Not the games, per se. Just the end of summer. And so, rather than indulge in that bittersweet inevitability, let's indulge in some lists. Or rankings, if you prefer. Because they are out there. Flooding the Interwebs.
