Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn enters his third season on the sidelines at the second most popular institute in the state of Alabama. Auburn has played second fiddle to the “CRIMSON TIDE OF ALABAMA” for a while.

Although the Tigers have been in the BCS title game twice in last six season’s it does not compare to the success they have had in Tuscaloosa.

The Tigers looked to improve on their 7-6 record in 2015. Malzahn must do one of his best jobs in his tenure at Auburn.

The hire of a new defensive coordinator could be the difference this season. The Tigers football program performs well when they are under the radar, and that’s what it could be this season. Auburn can pull some upsets this season.

Auburn gets tested out of the box with a Labor Day weekend matchup vs. Clemson. The Tigers play their first five games in the friendly confines of Jordan-Hare Stadium in the 2016 season.

 

The 2016-17 Auburn offense must find a quarterback who is capable of running the style implemented by Malzahn.

John Franklin III looks to be the favorite coming out of fall camp. 2015 starter Jeremy Johnson is still in the mix, and Sean White could also get a chance to show his skills under center.

Running Back Jovon Robinson is the starter this season after playing on the second team in 2015.

Wideouts Marcus Davis and Tony Stevens are upper classmen but unproven catching the football and running routes.

The offensive line must replace both starters at the tackle position, and that is Malzahn biggest concern. The O-line has talent but not a lot of experience.

Malzahn is looking for playmakers and could find it in the incoming freshman class..

Bovada list the 2016-17 Auburn Tigers at +1,800 to win the Southeastern Conference Championship.

The Auburn defense has had it’s struggle in the Malzahn era but this season could the unit could be the strength of the team.

Carl Lawson and Montravius Adams are next level talents in the trenches. The linebacker is the weak link on another wise, talented defense.

Tre’ Williams and an Illinois graduate transfer are going to be looked up for leadership.

The Auburn secondary is decent with sophomore Carlton Davis. Davis who is a talent from South Florida made his mark as a true freshman last season.

Tray Matthews and Rudy Ford are splendid safeties.

Two transfers from Ohio State and Miami (Ohio) respectfully will compete for the starting job opposite of Davis.

Las Vegas isn’t expecting much from the Tigers this season and plays to the strength of the Auburn coaching staff.

The Tigers competed for the National title when expectations have been low in the BCS era.

College Football Predictions, and Odds: 2016-17 Iowa Hawkeyes Preview.

Written and authored by NCAA Football Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes. College Football ATS Picks will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

The Iowa Hawkeyes were a single drive away from being in the 2015 BCS playoffs. Iowa lost a thriller to Michigan State for not only the Big Ten Championship but a spot in the BCS.

Iowa went 12-2 last season, dropping their final two contest to MSU and Stanford in the Rose Bowl.

The Hawkeyes had an impressive resume playing ranked teams in their last nine games. The 2016 team is favored to win the West division again this season.

Head Coach Kirk Ferentz enters his seventeenth season on the sidelines in Ames, Iowa. The 2016 Iowa Hawkeyes schedule is fairly soft out of conference.

Miami, Ohio, Iowa State and North Dakota State invade Kinnick Stadium in September. Iowa will travel to Penn State in early November in what could be an intriguing matchup.

 

The 2016-17 Iowa Hawkeyes offense is led by senior signal caller C.J Beathard. Offensive Coordinator Greg Davis did a masterful job last season with the play calling.

The Hawkeyes had one of the most prolific rushing attacks in the Big Ten in 2015, averaging a little over one hundred and eighty-one yards per contest on the ground.

Iowa is known for having an outstanding offensive line, and the trend continues this season.

Three returning starting offensive linemen come back to the team in 2016.

Running Backs LeShun Daniels and junior Akrum Wadley combined for over 1,100 yards last season and both return.

Tight End Matt VandeBerg (703) receiving yards returns for his senior season. Big play threat George Kittle can make the big play in clutch situations.

Bovada list the 2016-17 Iowa Hawkeyes at +750 to win the Big Ten Conference Championship.

 

Offensive Coordinator Phil Parker is back for his 18th season in Iowa City, 5th in charge of the defense.

Parker is one of the most respected assistant coaches among his peers in all of College Football.

Eight starters return on the Hawkeyes defense this season. Parker has three starters returning on the defensive line with tackles Jaleel Johnson and Nathan Bazata.

Second Team All-Conference performer middle linebacker Josey Jewell will call the plays on defense, and he’s a hitter.

The secondary, led by Jim Thorpe Award winner Desmond King. The Detroit, Michigan native is a lockdown corner who will be a high NFL draft choice.

Greg Mabin joins King on the other side cornerback. Safety Miles Taylor returns, but the coaching staff is having trouble filling the other safety position.

Free 2016-17 NCAA Football Picks, and Odds: Mississippi Rebels Forecast.

Written and authored by College Football Point Spread Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes.

Football Point Spread Predictions will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

Hugh Freeze and his “OLE MISS REBELS” has it all going their way last season. After an impressive road win at Alabama, the faithful in Oxford went crazy.

However, the Rebels season turned, and they finished the campaign with a 10-3 record and a Sugar Bowl victory over Oklahoma State.

Four seasons ago College Football fans were shocked that Freeze was able to recruit three of the top players in the nation.

The 2016-17 Rebels still have talent despite the loss of three first-round NFL draft picks. The Rebels won’t have to wait long for a competitive football game.

Ole Miss will travel to Orlando, Florida to take on a splendid Florida State team on Labor Day weekend.

Freeze must also get his team ready for SEC road trips to Texas A&M, LSU, and Arkansas. The Rebels get Alabama, Auburn, and Mississippi State at home in the 2016-17 season.

 

The Ole Miss offense will be led by quarterback Chad Kelly (4,024) yards through the air last season. The Buffalo, New York native turned heads last season with a magnificent exhibition against Alabama.

Offensive Tackle Laremy Tunsil and wideout Laquon Treadwell are now in the NFL. Freeze is sold on freshman Greg Little to protect Kelly’s blind side.

Offensive Coordinators Matt Luke and Dan Werner understands Little will have growing pains, but they are impressed with his nimble feet.

The loss of Treadwell will loom huge; he’s going to be a star at his next level.

Freeze and his staff have talent at the wide receiver position, and Kelly will find a go-to guy in the first couple of games this season.

Running Backs Akeem Judd and Jordan Wilkins will carry the load in the rushing attack. Both are big backs who can pound it inside.

Bovada list the 2016-17 Mississippi Rebels at +1,000 to win the SEC Title.

 

The 2016-17 Mississippi Rebels defense must get better against the pass.

Co-Defensive Coordinators Jason Jones and Dave Wommack will not have the services of defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche.

Ole Miss ranked near the bottom of the FBS in pass defense last season. Junior Defensive End Marquis Haynes is one of the best at his position rushing the passer.

Fadol Brown, who lines up on the other end position has NFL type size. Freeze and his staff tried to take advantage of recruiting again this season but failed at the inside linebacker position.

Oregon State transfer Rommel Mageo will be the starter at the inside linebacker position.

Senior Tony Conner is a first round talent in the secondary, a knee injury last season stopped his progression, but he’s ready to go in 2016-17.

The “OLE MISS REBELS” will contend for the SEC West title.

Free NCAA Football Picks, and Odds: 2016-17 Alabama Crimson Tide Preview.

Written and authored by College Football Point Spread Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes. Football ATS Predictions will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

What’s new! The Alabama Crimson Tide are the favorites again this season to win the BCS title.

Head Coach Nick Saban enters his ninth season on the sidelines at one of the most visible programs in the nation.

The Crimson Tide has won the National Championship three of the last five years. Beating Alabama will be the focus of every Southeastern Conference football coach again in the 2016 season. T

The Tide lost talented players to the NFL, but Saban is a master at reloading. However, there are a few obstacles in the way with road games at Tennessee, Ole Miss, and LSU.

The Alabama Crimson Tide opens the 2016 season vs. USC at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

 

Offensive Coordinator Lane Kiffin will again be in charge the 2016-17 Alabama offense.

Gone from the roster is starting signal caller Jake Coker and Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry over 2,000 yards rushing.

Graduation to second team tailback Kenyan Drake is also a big deal. Enter highly recruited running back Bo Scarbrough, who will be the next All-American in the backfield.

Kiffin must also replace a first round draft choice on the offensive line. Offensive Tackle Cam Robinson is the next top draft pick from Alabama.

Cooper Bateman initially beat out Coker for the starting quarterback job last season but struggled. Saban likes what he see’s in Bateman as a versatile player.

Who can beat you with his feet as well as his strong arm in the passing game? Wide Receivers Calvin Ridley ArDarius Stewart is two of the best at their position in College Football.

Tight End O.J Howard complained all of the last seasons about not getting passes thrown. The coaching staff will surely look his way in 2016 after a monster game in their BCS title game win against Clemson.

Bovada list the 2016-17 Alabama Crimson Tide at +175 to win the SEC Title.

 

The Alabama defense will be without their leader and NFL draftee Reggie Ragland. Reuben Foster is next up at the position that is one of the most important at Alabama.

Also gone to the NFL are defensive lineman A’Shawn Robinson and Jarran Reed. The 2015-16 Crimson Tide defense ranked first nationally vs. The run and third in total yards.

Defensive Coordinator Jeremy Pruitt takes over for new University of Georgia’s head coach Kirby Smart.

Tim Williams and Ryan Anderson return at the outside linebacker position.

Cornerback Cyrus Jones graduated, but there is plenty talent returning in the secondary.

Safety Eddie Jackson is a smart player who will help the new coordinator with alignment.

The Alabama Crimson Tide will have few bumps in the road in the 2016-17 season.

2016-17 College Football Predictions, and Odds: Texas Longhorns Forecast.

Written and authored by NCAA Football Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes. Football Betting Picks will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

It could be a do or die for University of Texas head football coach Charlie Strong. The former Louisville Cardinals general enters his third season on the sidelines in Austin.

The coaching staff did their best in bringing in some blue chip prep stars in the “LONE STAR STATE”.

Texas is a hotbed for talent nationwide, and the Longhorns usually get their choice of top players.

However, TCU, Oklahoma, and Baylor have risen to the level of the Longhorns. No other athletic department in the nation pours more into their football program than boosters and alumni at the University of Texas.

The Longhorns open the 2016 season at home against Notre Dame. Texas begins the month of October with Conference foes Oklahoma State and Oklahoma.

 

Offensive Coordinator Sterlin Gilbert was hired to get the offense on course. The Texas offense was among the worst in the FBS last season, and it has been that way since the Strong tenure.

The Longhorns offense put up an average of 145.o yards per contest throwing the football, 118th in the nation.

There is too much talent for the Texas offense to rank 93rd nationwide. Gilbert is a disciple of former Baylor head coach Art Briles.

Freshman signal-caller Shane Buechele will compete for the starting quarterback job. Jerrod Heard and Tyrone Swoopes are also in the mix for the job.

Wide Receiver John Burt (457) yards last season is the top returning pass catcher. D’Onta Foreman is a massive running back who can catch passes out of the backfield.

Bovada list the 2016-17 West Virginia Mountaineers at +650 to win the Big Twelve Championship.

 

The 2016-17 Texas Longhorns defense was just a pathetic as the offense in 2016 ranking 107th, allowing opponents 457.0 yards per contest.

Texas landed five top defensive tackles in the 2016 recruiting class. The opposition rushed for nearly 220.0 yards per game last season; the number must drop.

Strong insists the defensive line is a major concern. Young freshman must step in immediately and contribute in the trenches.

Sophomore linebacker Malik Jefferson is a potential All-American at the linebacker position.

Defensive Ends Charles Omenihu and Breckyn Hager will not only help against the run but must provide a pass rush.

The Texas Longhorns will again have a more than healthy secondary. Sophomore cornerbacks Davante Davis and Holton have a year of experience under their belts.

Safety DeShon Elliott is another second-year player who will contribute.

NCAA Football Expert Picks, and Odds: 2016-17 West Virginia Mountaineers Preview.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes. College Football Predictions will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

Former Oklahoma State Offensive Coordinator Dana Holgorsen enters his fifth season as the head coach at West Virginia University.

Holgorsen and the Mountaineers had a tough time in the month of October last season, losing to all four elite teams in the Big-Twelve Conference.

The Mountaineers beat Arizona State 42-41 in the Cactus Bowl to cap off the season. West Virginia should have one of the best offenses in the Conference in the 2016 season.

Fans in Morgantown want to own a Big Twelve title, and patience could be running thin with alumni and boosters.

West Virginia opens the 2016 season, hosting Missouri of the SEC. The Mountaineers then play a good Youngstown State team, and it’s off to the “NATION’S CAPITAL” for a non conference game against BYU. West Virginia also gets Oklahoma and TCU at home this season.

 

The 2016-17 West Virginia Mountaineers offense has a new coordinator Joe Wickline; the team will still run the spread offense.

Starting Quarterback Skyler Howard is back after passing for 3,145 yards last season. Howard had an up and down season but turned heads with precision passing in the bowl victory.

Running Back Rushel Shell takes over for NFL draftee Wendell Smallwood, and they also signed a few highly rated prep stars.

Shelton Gibson led all West Virginia receivers with ten touchdowns and 887 receiving yards last season returns.

Leading pass-catcher Daikiel Shorts is reliable and can block with the bet in the FBS is also back for another season.

All five starters return on the offensive line, but they must improve in pass protection and run blocking.

The outlook for the West Virginia offense is magnificent, and it has to be in their Conference. Bovada list the 2016-17 West Virginia Mountaineers at +1,200 to win the Big Twelve Title.

 

The West Virginia defense ranked 61st in all of College Football last season. Defensive coordinator Tony Gibson must replace eight starters including an NFL first-round draft choice.

Holgorsen and the entire coaching staff has confidence in the big guys up front; the defensive line is high. Noble Nwachukwu and Christian Brown are the stars of the unit; there is also depth in the trenches.

All three starting linebackers are gone, but Xavier Preston provides experience.

The secondary must replace Karl Joseph, Darryl Worley, and K.J. Dillon. Joseph, the leaders, was the top draft pick of the NFL Oakland Raiders in 2016.

Dravon Askew-Henry has been a starter since coming to the program as a freshman.

University of Iowa transfer Maurice Fleming expects to add experience in the defensive backfield.

The Mountaineers defense will get tested every game by the opposition, especially in the passing game.

2016-17 Football Predictions, and Odds: TCU Horned Frogs Preview.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes. NCAA Football ATS Picks will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

TCU Head Football Coach Gary Patterson has the Fort Worth-based Institute as the premier College Football program in the “LONE STAR STATE”.

It didn’t happen overnight and took a lot of patience and selling in North Texas. Patterson enters his fifteenth season on the sidelines and will go down as a legend among the coaching ranks.

The Horned Frogs won their first eight games in 2015 but injuries to leading players down the stretch of the season prevented the team from reaching their ultimate goal.

The departure of multi-talented signal caller Trevone Boykin will not be felt as much as fans think.

Patterson and his coaching staff still have the talent to compete for the Big-Twelve title. The TCU nonconference schedule is not a tough a the rest of the Big Twelve.

TCU host Arkansas of the SEC-West in the second week of the 2016 season.

 

Offensive Coordinators Sonny Cumbie and Doug Meacham will also be without the services of NFL first-round draft choice Josh Doctson.

The Washington Redskins pick, topped TCU with fourteen touchdowns and 1,227 receiving yards last season. The Boykin to Doctson combination had coaches in the conference losing sleep over the past two seasons.

It still may cause opponents to work overtime on and off of the football field.

Former Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill will be the starting quarterback for TCU in 2016. The Southlake, Texas native is back home in familiar territory and is poised to take over where Boykin left off.

Hill is more accurate and knows how to dissect a defense. The TCU offense was third in the FBS in total offense last season, seventh in scoring and the passing game ranked 8th.

A trio of wideouts led by KaVontae Turpin will elevate the passing attack. Four starters from the offensive line must be replaced along with running back Aaron Green.

Bovada list the 2016-17 TCU Horned Frogs at +500 to win the Big Twelve Championship.

 

The 2016-17 TCU defense should be a little better than they were last season.

The Horned Frogs has trouble stopping the run by who cares in the pass happy Big-Twelve Conference.

Linebackers Travin Howard, Ty Summers, and Montrel Wilson all return along with Sammy Douglas. The unit is the most talented group on the defensive side of the football.

Gary Patterson always has fast and athletic defenses but can they compete with the elite in College Football.

Defensive End Josh Carraway returns as the sack leader from last season, and James McFarland is back after missing last year.

The secondary is clearly thin on experience, but there is plenty of skill players at the high school level in the state of Texas.

It will not be hard to find cornerbacks and safeties. Patterson will have the defense ready to compete. Four experienced players who missed the entire 2015 season are willing to put the pads on and begin hitting.
