With the competition wide open for the Heisman Trophy, Boston College running back Andre Williams has become a bit of a rising contender.
The first-ever college football game at the planned Levi’s Stadium will pit the University of California at Berkeley versus the University of Oregon next Oct. 24, a UC Berkeley spokesman said.
Tyler Gaffney ran for 157 yards and No. 6 Stanford hammered No. 2 Oregon for three quarters, then held off a furious final kick by the Ducks to crush their national title hopes for a second straight season, this time with a 26-20 victory Thursday night.
By now, we have taken a glance at some of the SEC’s Heisman hopefuls like Manziel, McCarron and Murray. But what about the league’s second highest-rated passer, LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger?
This is the week college football fans have had circled on the calendar for quite some time. This is the week that will begin to truly shape the BCS Championship picture. This is the week we have been waiting for.
Stanford has been picked by the Pac-12 coaches to win the conference title again this season behind reigning Player of the Year Chiney Ogwumike.
The Pac 12 has a few quarterbacks being talked about when discussing the Heisman Trophy this season. While Oregon’s Marcus Mariota may be considered the Heisman favorite at this point in the season, Oregon State’s Sean Mannion has been doing more than enough to stay in the running, and may be the ultimate sleeper pick this season.
Almost every time a Pac-12 challenger has emerged recently to oppose Stanford and Oregon—the winners of the last four conference championships—the Cardinal and Ducks show just how much of a gap there is between them and everybody else.
A majority of the Pac-12, including Cal, has moved to some type of hurry-up, no-huddle system. Holdouts still running largely pro-style offenses include Stanford, Oregon State, and USC.
The No. 5 Cardinal will try to avoid last year’s fate Saturday when they play Washington State in Seattle, 366 days after losing their perfect record at Washington.
