    Agreed. The atmosphere is better and I enjoy all the variety you see on offense in the college game. You can see everything from the triple option to the air raid in college football.

    They have been pretty good lately. They still play in the big 12 so they are somewhat in the exclusive club of teams. I was talking about lesser teams like Boise State and Utah etc. I personally do not agree with the concepts of the BCS conferences. I went to Texas, and although they have had plenty of success flexing their money and muscle I would rather see them play all ranked teams and go .500 instead of beating up on Florida Atlantic. Now we can both agree on the Texans right?

    LA Tech supposed to be any good? That seems like that might be a potential upset based on what they did last year and the first game for a new coaching staff for aTm.....

    That's because you're a Bama fan.

    College football is great but it's an appetizer for Sundays. A tasty, good-sized portion.

    Fantasy football sets the NFL apart.

    You do realize Oregon is a running team, right? They pass too and balance it out fairly well but running the ball is their primary means of destroying defenses. This is Chip Kelly's way.

    Personally I think TAMU will handle them but several people think LA Tech will win. On paper TAMU's oline is just too good IMO.

    True. Fantasy football makes the NFL so much better.

    I was just trying to say that NFL games are rarely played on Saturdays so why not watch some college football? There were some great games and upsets last year.

    They have fantasy for college. There was a time when Tech QB's were outlawed from it. Not sure if that's still the case or if they just outlaw all spread QB's.

    Going to be interesting with many teams switching conferences or planning to switch in the next few years.

    Man, it got called back, but WSU WR Marquess Wilson made a spectacular catch in the end zone.

    Agreed. But in fairness, the pass interference call was as well.
