Sadly, it’s going to take more than chaos to spark expansion of College Football Playoff

Since it was first introduced to the College Football world, the one question that has followed the College Football Playoff format is “when are they going to expand the bracket?” The four team system has served it purpose up until now. It is hard to deny that we often see the same names in the playoff since its inception. Opening up the playoff could feature new exciting match-ups, but it probably won’t happen anytime soon.

UNLV-Hawaii rivalry evolves due to Hawaiians’ love for Las Vegas

Usually people are planning trips to visit Hawaii. But for the island natives, the Sin City seems to be a popular destination! The campus and stadium of UNLV get invaded anytime the Rainbow Warriors come to town. With many fans in the stands sporting green and white instead of the familiar red and black. It should be another classic this weekend!

Position preview and prediction for Nevada football vs. San Jose State

A position-by-position breakdown of this weekend’s upcoming contest of Nevada and San Jose State. For the most part, the edge leans towards the Wolf Pack. San Jose has struggled so far this year, and are hoping to take a positive away from any game. But this game looks like it should be won by Nevada, and rather easily.

Aztecs lose two starting offensive linemen — one injured, one suspended — for Fresno State game

A case can be made that the offensive line is the most important part of a football team. The big guys upfront give the offense a chance to operate, and when you lose a starting offensive lineman, you could very well lose your season as well. For San Diego State, the lost of two offensive linemen in one game is huge. For Tyler Roemer, he is suspended indefinitely from the team, and his fellow teammate Keith Ismael is in concussion protocol. The Aztecs will be up against it this weekend.
