Found November 15, 2012 on Taking Bad Schotz:
Week 11 Maxwell Award Elite Going into last week it appeared Alabama was labeled unbeatable, defeating every thrown obstacle, but Texas A&M Freshman QB Johnny Manziel went against the Tide and took down the SEC Goliath. Manziel completed 24 of his 31 passing attempts for 253 yards and two touchdowns while rushing the ball 18 times for 92 yards. Even when pressured or throwing into double coverage, Manziel made multiple unbelievable throws and decisions while breaking down a NFL-like Alabama defense. On the season, the exciting “Johnny Football” has 33 total touchdowns (18 passing, 15 rushing). Week after week USC sophomore sensation WR Marqise Lee puts up astonishing numbers. In Week 11 against Arizona State, Lee registered 10 receptions for 161 yards and a touchdown, complimented with 66 rushing yards on six carries. Lee now has four straight games of 100 receiving yards or more with at least one touchdown. On the year, Lee is 2 catches shy of 100 receptions and leads the na...

OSU's "other" football rivalry heats up

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - It used to be that Ohio State players despised their longtime enemies to the north, Michigan, and abided everyone else on their schedule. No more.

College football week 12: Tailgater picks of the week

Stanford hosted Oregon State last week, and the game resulted in the crew’s second push of the year.  I added a third push when Virginia benefited from one of the worst phantom pass interference calls in recent memory against Miami.  Ties are no fun, and with a push, no one wins.  So here’s hoping that week 12 will be a bit more definitive.  I’ve often wondered why all...

5 Things to Watch for Against Ohio State

What do you get when you combine Wisconsin and Ohio State? Besides fans that HATE each other, awesome tailgates, and a ton of trash talking - you also get really good football games.

Badgers, Buckeyes both need win to prove a point

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Its spot in the Big Ten title game already assured, Wisconsin now gets a chance to prove it deserves it.
