Making the Rounds: Finally Football is Here

Air Force vs. Nicholls State

Tim Jefferson officially named starting quarterback and releases their depth chart.  Linebacker Justin Moore Is a going to be a playmaker on defense for the Falcons.  The young players need to step up for Air Force.

BYU vs. Oklahoma

Apparently, BYU is not much of a test, well unless you ask Bob Stoops. BYU Is not weird or cultish, it's just into clean living.  BYU is 10 for 10 with conference titles with a senior quarterback.  Stoops discusses the Cougs in depth.  BYU LT Matt Reynolds looks good to go for the opener. Sooners have versatility at the center spot.  Bobby Eldrige is bringing two sets of everything for the opener for the two positions he will play.

Colorado State @ Colorado

The rivalry returns to Denver through 2019.  Is CU coach Dan Hawkins on the hot seat? Rams have most starts back on the o-line in the country.  Buffs relase depth chart, but the quarterback position is still up for grabs. Rams gearing up for the Buffs.  Freshman are getting playing time for the Rams, but coach Fairchild does not want it that way.

New Mexico @ Texas A&M 

Lobos preping for the Aggies, by studying the past.  Former Aggie coach R.C. Slocum gave a speech to the defense.  MIke Sherman's press conference about New Mexico.  More depth charts announced, and the Lobos are a mystery with a new staff.

San Diego State @UCLA

Fire will not postpone the opener at the Rose Bowl, actually it might be postponed. Aztecs release their depth chart, with little fanfare.  Freshman running back Anthony Miller gets the nod against UCLA and QB Kevin Prince is in the spotlight.  The Bruins have won 20 of 21 meetings against the Aztecs.  Bruins making an effort to get their speed guys the ball. Aztec offensive line will be challenged.

TCU

Receiver Bart Johnson loves to bass fish. Offense is looking great, but the defense finally gets the best of the offense in a recent scrimmage.  TCU linebacker makes transition from a previous career as a BMX rider.

UNLV vs Sacramento State

Check the SacRat a blog about Sacramento State. Twenty question to coach Mike Sanford.  Channing Trotter is named the starting running back.  Junior Quinton Pointer and sophomore Deante Purvis are the starting cornerbacks for the opener.  Sac State an unkonwn entity to UNLV.

Utah vs. Utah State

Press conference notes from Utah and Utah State. Former Utah quarterback Brian Johnson is writing a blog for the Desert News.  Utah has a starter named at QB but no one is saying who.  Can Utah State really win? Game week!

Wyoming vs. Weber State

How obscure is Wyoming?  Update on QB Robert Benjamin, who is officially named the starter.  Wyoming depth chart released.  Pokes defense is good but does not matchup with the offense.
