Spring practice and final scrimmages aren’t always the most exciting part of college football, but there are a few noteworthy highlights each year.
Kansas State’s Tyler Lockett provided one of those moments on Saturday, as the junior was targeted by quarterback Daniel Sams in the back of the end zone. However, the ball was tipped by the safety, which resulted in Lockett bouncing it twice off his hands before catching it for a touchdown.
Can anyone beat Louisville and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in 2013?
Louisville is a heavy favorite to win the Big East/American Athletic Conference in 2013. With quarterback Teddy Bridgewater returning, along with one of the conference’s best defenses, the Cardinals have a good opportunity to finish the season with a perfect 12-0 mark.
While Louisville is a clear No. 1, there’s a lot of debate about which team should be projected to finish second.
With each of the top contenders experiencing some key personnel departures, the Big 12 is easily the toughest conference to predict for 2013.
Texas has underachieved in recent years, but the Longhorns appear to be back on track after a 9-4 record last season. After going 5-7 in 2010, Texas has made the climb back to Big 12 title contention, but another 7-5 or 8-4 year could spell the end of Mack Brown’s tenure in Austin.
The Spartans need a big season from its defense in 2013.
After a disappointing 2012 season, Michigan State hopes to climb back into discussion for the Big Ten Legends Division title.
The Spartans had a top-10 defense last year, but the offense was one of the worst in the Big Ten. Question marks remain about this unit in 2013, especially with the departure of running back Le’Veon Bell and tight end Dion Sims.
