The college football season has passed the quarter poll, and with each game, the title picture starts to become a little clearer. That’s also why it was such a pleasure to join my buddy Justin Hull on his radio show Thursday afternoon, to discuss the biggest story lines heading into the weekend, and what lies ahead for some of college football’s best teams. To listen to the conversation, click here. For a preview, here are a handful of the discussions we had Thursday: We start by looking at the battle between Ohio State and Northwestern Saturday night in Evanston. I explain why Northwestern has had so much early season success, but also why the Buckeyes have also exceeded expectations, even as a top-ranked team. We also discussed the rest of the Big Ten. Justin believes that it’s another down year for the conference, while I’m not so sure. Is the conference weak overall? Or is it just top-heavy, with Ohio State, Northwestern, Michigan and Wisconsin standing tall, while everyone else struggles behind them.   Next we turn our attention to the national scene, and I explain why Oregon- even as the No. 2 ranked team in the country- is one of the surprise teams in college football. I also answer the question of why the Ducks are live cricket bet from william hill favorite to knock off the SEC in a potential BCS title game. And finally, Justin and I discuss the Heisman Trophy conversation, and if there are any dark horses not currently in the picture who could sneak onto the scene. I make the case for Jameis Winston, but also add the caveat that this will likely be the season where one of the favorites takes home the award. Will it be Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater, Aaron Murray or someone else? Again, to listen to the conversation just click here. Also be sure to check back every week, as I will be appearing on Justin’s radio show every Thursday to give my take on the college football weekend.
