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.

College Football Picks, and Odds: 2016-17 Oklahoma Sooners Forecast.

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

The Oklahoma Sooners made it to the BCS Playoffs last season after winning the 2015 Big-Twelve title with an 11-1 overall record.

Oklahoma lost in the semi-finals to the Clemson Tigers. Head Coach Bob Stoops enters his eighteenth season on the sidelines in “TORNADO ALLEY”.

Oklahoma returns twelve starters to the 2016 roster and another Big-Twelve title is within reach. With everything going on in the Conference such as the Baylor scandal Oklahoma looks the odds on favorite to repeat.

A showdown with the upstart University of Houston Cougars at NRG Stadium in South Texas is the opener. Oklahoma hosts the Ohio State Buckeyes on September 17th. Their next game is on the road at TCU to begin October.

The 2016-17 Oklahoma Sooners offense and coordinator Lincoln Riley should be one of the best in the FBS.

Starting quarterback Baker Mayfield is one of the most active signal callers in the land. The Sooners ranked seventh in the nation with 530.2 of offense per contest.

The Oklahoma offense put up an average of 43.5 points per game. The running back tandem of Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon is one of the best in America.

Gone from the offense is All-American wideout Sterling Shepard but Dede Westbrook is still in play.

The Oklahoma offense will be one of the best in all of College Football. The Sooners offensive line returns intact, just two starters from last season must be replaced. The Sooners offense will have few tests along the way but should be an offensive juggernaut.

Bovada list the 2016-17 Oklahoma Sooners at -125 to win the Big Twelve Championship.

 

Defensive Coordinator Mike Stoops brother of the head coach will be without the services of four quality starters from last season, including emotional leader Eric Striker.

All four were the first team All-Conference selections last year.

However, four returnees made the second team All-Big Twelve team.

The Oklahoma Sooners defense allowed opponents twenty-two points per game last season.

Defensive End Charles Walker anchors the “BIG UGLY’S” up front. The Sooners are thin at the linebacker position with the departure of Striker.

The Oklahoma secondary should be the best in the conference led by cornerback Jordan Thomas.

Safeties Ahmad Thomas and Steven Parker have a year of experience under their belt and should be able to read opposing offenses.

The Oklahoma defense will get tested nearly every week in the high-powered Big Twelve Conference.

Free 2016-17 NFL Exhibition Point Spread Predictions, and Odds: Oakland Raiders at Green Bay Packers Preview.

Written and authored by National Football League 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.

The (1-0) Oakland Raiders of the AFC West division will make the trip to the “DAIRY STATE” for their week two preseason contest.

Oakland will take on the unbeaten Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Oakland is playing their second consecutive game on the road in the exhibition season.

The Raiders are one of the young and upcoming teams in the NFL with talent on both sides of the football.

The Green Bay Packers will again contend for the NFC North title. The Packers lost in the division round to the Arizona Cardinals in last season’s playoffs.

 

The Oakland Raiders beat Arizona 30-10 in the week one preseason opener. Starting quarterback Derek Carr threw just seven passes and completed three.

Matt McGloin and Rookie Connor Cook took over after the first series for Carr. McGloin tossed two touchdowns late in the first quarter.

The Oakland Raiders have the best team they have fielded in the past decade. Look for the Raider offense to be one of the most potent in the league this season.

Second Year pro-Amari Cooper is the primary target of the passing attack.

Former 49ers first round pick Michael Crabtree came to the team last season and is also a capable threat.

The Raiders added more talent on both sides of the football for the upcoming season.

Former Seattle linebacker and pass-rushing specialist Bruce Irvin is the perfect complement to Khalil Mack getting pressure on opposing quarterbacks.

Bovada list the 2016-17 Oakland Raiders at +700 to win the AFC West Division Championship.

 

The 2016-17 Green Bay Packers beat the Cleveland Browns in a low scoring affair in their preseason opener.

Oakland General Manager Reggie McKenzie had ties with the Green Bay organization and was a good friend of the late Reggie White.

McKenzie has finally been able to put together the right fit in Oakland. The best thing he did was hire Jack Del Rio as the head coach.

The former Jacksonville Jaguars coach did a masterful job in his first season on the sideline in the “BAY AREA”. Back to the Packers, Aaron Rodgers is one of the most recognizable names in the NFL.

The former University of California star will see limited action in week two.

Green Bay wideout Davante Adams grew up in Northern California and wants to produce for fans.

The Packers beat Oakland in December of the 2015 season 30-20. The organization intends to get a good look at Brett Hundley at the quarterback position.

2016-17 NCAA Football Picks, and Odds: Connecticut Huskies Forecast.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes.

College Football Point Spread Predictions will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season. University of Connecticut head football coach Bob Diaco is coming off of a magnificent season at the New England-based institute.

The Huskies were 2-10 the season before but competed at a high level in the 2015 season.

UConn is known for its powerhouse basketball teams and has just been playing big time football for a short period.

Fans in the state believe everything is in place for the football program to become a powerhouse on the gridiron.

The Huskies compete with Boston College and Syracuse in the New England region. However, the program has started to hit the national recruiting scene.

The team gets Boston College and Syracuse of the Atlantic Coast Conference in their out of conference schedule this season.

Connecticut won’t sneak up on anybody this season. Opponents are aware of what they did in 2015.

 

The 2016-17 Connecticut Huskies offense has nowhere to go but up statistically.

The Uconn offense ranked 124th in the FBS last season and scored a little over seventeen points per contest.

The passing game and the rushing attack were both pathetic, to say the least.

Junior running back Arkeel Newsome is the best player on offense. The Ansonia, Connecticut native rushed for a team-high 792 yards with eight touchdowns.

Offensive Coordinator Frank Verducci will have junior signal caller Bryant Shirreffs under center.

Senior wideout Noel Thomas (719) receiving yards in 2015 is the primary target of the passing attack.

The Huskies did a good enough job on the recruiting trail this season and some freshmen will get some time on offense.

Four starters return on the offensive line, a unit that struggles mightily last season. The Huskies have some fight on offense and if they can score points, watch out AAC.

 

Co-Defensive Coordinators Vincent Brown and Anthony Poindexter did a great job with the Huskies last season on the defensive side of the football.

The Huskies ranked 15th nationally, allowing opponents just 19.5 points per contest in 2015.

Starting defensive tackle Foli Fatukasi, led the team with eight sacks anchors the line again in 2016. Defensive End Luke Carrezola is also going to be a force this season with the pass rush.

Brown and Poindexter have a unit of linebackers which are hard hitting a decent in pass coverage.

Florida State transfer E.J. Levenberry will be an instant starter. The secondary has talent, led by junior cornerback Jamar Summers, five interceptions last season.

Two more starting defensive backs return for the 2016 season.

Bovada list the 2016 Connecticut Huskies at 3,300 to win the American Athletic Conference Title.
