Dramatic Comeback Bounces Bears to #5

Posted on October 12th 2014

TCU was in full control of the game with a 21 point lead early in the fourth quarter and a win for Baylor looked hopeless, but the Bears never gave up and Bryce Petty lead Baylor to a 3 point victory over the longtime rival Horned Frogs. But it’s the state of Mississippi that rules… Read more »

Miss. St. Soars to #10 after shocking LSU

Posted on September 21st 2014

You could almost see it coming, this signature road win, ever since Dan Mullen took over in 2009. After an initial 5-7 record in his first season Mullen guided the Bulldogs to 4 consecutive winning seasons. There were some big wins along the way, a 10-7 win in the Swamp in 2010, a 28-10 win… Read more »

Sooners Top Tennessee 34-10

Posted on September 14th 2014

Oklahoma rolled over the Volunteers Saturday night with an overwhelming defensive performance. Tennessee was never able to generate any momentum as the Sooner defense thwarted almost everything in the Vols playbook. Oklahoma moved to #2 in the Billingsley report behind #1 Oregon. Remember what I said last week about the Big 10 not being dead?… Read more »

Georgia at South Carolina Highlight Week 3

Posted on September 10th 2014

#5 Georgia at #20 South Carolina – Georgia can take a huge step toward an SEC East title with a win over the Gamecocks in Columbia, but it won’t be an easy task for Mark Richt and Company. The Bulldogs had a week off in preparation for the trip to Columbia where they have lost… Read more »

Week 2 Preview

Posted on September 3rd 2014

Last week both the Billingsley and Billingsley + projections went 29-9 in FBS vs FBS games, a respectable 76.3%, but honestly a little disappointing for me. Shocking losses by Northwestern, Vanderbilt, and Houston, all of whom were heavily favored by double digits sure threw a wrench in my reputation. Still, I won’t complain because it… Read more »

Richard’s Rewind – Week 1

Posted on September 1st 2014

With week 1 rankings still outstanding because of tonight’s Louisville/Miami (Fla.) game it’s impossible to know for sure where every team will fall exactly, but a preliminary run is showing some big movement in the Top 25. Keeping in mind that margin of victory is not included in the Billingsley Report calculations, Florida State will… Read more »

2014 College Football Week 1 Preview

Posted on August 27th 2014

It seems odd to talk college football when it’s 100 degrees outside, but that’s the norm for football in the South. I’m longing for the first cold front that will at least moderate the temps to the high 80’s. But here in Choctaw County, Hugo, Oklahoma we are still a long way from the crisp… Read more »

Florida State Roaring Toward Repeat

Posted on August 19th 2014

The Seminoles are loaded and ready to defend their ACC and National Titles. Billingsley projects Florida State to finish undefeated, but there are some potential pitfalls on the 2014 schedule. An opening game in Arlington against Oklahoma State will tell us a lot about any possible over confidence factor and an early season September 20th… Read more »

Boise State Seeks Redemption in Mountain West

Posted on August 1st 2014

After falling to a mediocre record of 8-5 in 2013, the first time since 2005 not to win at least 10 games, the Broncos are eager to prove last season was a fluke. An opening game at Ole Miss is a crucial contest for Boise. A win over the Rebels (currently a projected loss) and… Read more »

Scheduling Issue could hurt American Conference

Posted on

Having only 11 member teams is potentially presenting a controversy for the American Conference in 2014. Without a round robin schedule or a 12th team to split into divisions and create a championship game, the possibility of a two or three way tie at the top is very realistic. Houston plays both projected contenders within… Read more »
