  • Army and Navy open up about how they prepare to play each other and how important game film from Air Force is.
  • Minnesota State used one of the most epic drives I’ve ever heard of to overcome a 10 point deficit and advance to the DII semi-finals.


  • Interviews are under way but Major Applewhite does not have a set timetable to hire a new defensive coordinator at Houston.
  • It’s time to say goodbye to one of the best defensive players college football has ever seen. Ed Oliver has played his last game as a Houston Cougar.
  • Darriel Mack Jr. came up big for UCF in order to secure back-to-back AAC championships for the Knights.
  • Josh Heupel made an appearance on the Jim Rome show to talk about McKenzie Milton’s injury and what a special player he is.
  • This week has shown us that even 25 straight wins isn’t enough to impress the playoff committee if you’re not from a P5 conference.
  • ECU has finalized their hire of Mike Houston, who was originally expected to become the next head coach at Charlotte.
  • Houston will immediately turn his attention to the 2019 recruiting class with early signing day lingering.
