Will Baylor's threat of legal action be enough to keep the Big 12 together?
In an attempt to save the Big 12 from crumbling, Baylor is considering legal options against Texas A&M and the SEC. This twist is just the latest in a bizarre saga involving the Big 12, especially after Nebraska and Colorado left the conference after the 2010 season.
Will we see another early stunner in college football's opening weekend?
There have been several September shockers over the last few college football seasons. Appalachian State beating Michigan in 2007 still gets a lot of talk, and there were early stunners last year with Jacksonville State blindsiding Ole Miss, Kansas losing to North Dakota State 6-3, and James Madison topping Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. There may not be a surprise of that level during the opening weekend, but interesting storylines always seem to happen early in the season.
We certainly do not condone gambling here at Athlon Sports, but much can be gleaned from a quick look at the points spreads. Week One of the college football season contains the most uncertainty of any week of year. Teams from coast to coast will wildly under- and over-achieve based upon preseason expectations, and there is much to be won because of it.
