Join Athlon’s editorial team every week of the preseason, regular season, postseason and offseason for a breakdown of the entire circus that is college football.
Big tests for Playoff contenders
Alabama and Georgia face huge tests in the SEC while former Big 12 frontrunner Oklahoma goes on the road to battle Iowa St. A bunch of ranked teams with some "handle your business" games and lots of coaches under pressure to win. Oh, and the Pac-12 is back!
Oklahoma and LSU headlined a wild weekend in college football, but it's important to remember that there is a lot of losing left to do. What do we make of Texas, Oklahoma State and the rest of the Big 12 so far in 2020? SEC QB debuts were stunning and stunningly bad. And Miami continues to roll while the questions pile up in Tallahassee. And the bad beats to top all bad beats.
The SEC is Back, Too
The SEC rejoins college football! Hooray! And some of the best games of the week come from the Southeast as Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Tennessee go on the road. What the hell is going on at Florida State? Can Iowa St and Ok-State bounce back in the Big 12? And picks against the spread our gambling expert.
Miami looks like Miami and Big Ten schedules
Miami posts the biggest win of the year to date on the road against Louisville while the big dogs played meaningless games in the ACC (although, keep an eye on Pitt). Ok-State lost Spencer Sanders and immediately watched the offense disappear.
Did the Big Ten serve up the league championship to Ohio State with their new schedule? Who is the favorite in the West and what did Nebraska do the B1G? (Oh, that's right, they filed a lawsuit)
The Big Ten is Back! (and a Week 3 preview)
The Big Ten is back baby! What do you need to know about the Big Ten's return to play, why it happened the way it did and can they get the season in to make the Playoff? We also look back at what we learned from Week 2 (looking at you Florida St and Iowa St) and dive deep into a Week 3 slate of games highlighted by Miami and Louisville.
The first real weekend of college football?
What did we learn in Week 1 from the sloppy, lop-sided games we saw? Why the Big Ten is the political center of the sports universe, why Lincoln Riley has disappointed us and why gambling could save college football (not destroy it).
And, get this, a complete Week 2 preview of all the games, new faces in new places and picks against the spread! Hooray!
Customer ReviewsSee All
A fantastic podcast
Braden (the main host) is both incredibly knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the sport of CFB. The other hosts are great additions to the show as well and are also a lot of fun to listen to. The show itself is an awesome mix of intelligent evaluations that are both fair and entertaining. I have subscribed to many CFB podcasts over the years, but this is the only one I have stuck with that addresses the sport as a whole. I don’t write many podcast reviews, but this show definitely deserves its five stars.
On a side note, the “open letter” show Braden recently posted was amazing and clearly done by someone who is both a fan of this great sport and also a rational and caring human being. That show alone has made me a fan of his work for life.
Not good since Mitch left. No one cares about your politics. There better ways to spend an hour.
Not what it use to be
This use to be one of the best CFB podcast (&solid verbal) but since Mitch Light left, it just leaves you wanting more. I would be waiting for new episodes with excitement. Now I find myself struggling to even finish the pod. It’s very disappointing considering how highly I held this show for many years.
