Vine: Alabama OL Cam Robinson Caught A Screen Pass In The Tide’s Spring Game

After an up-and-down first season for Charlie Strong’s Texas Longhorns, things won’t get much easier to kick off 2015.

Vine: Ezekiel Elliot Edges Out Braxton Miller In Ohio State Fastest Student Race

Ezekiel Elliott is one of the elite running backs in college football, and unsurprisingly, he is the fastest guy on the Ohio State campus, at least based on today’s “fastest student race.” The first half of today’s Ohio State spring game was entertaining, but halftime has been pretty fun as well. Cardale Jones already wowed the crowd with a 74-yard throw, and now Elliott...

WATCH: Cardale Jones throws ball 74 yards during contest

It’s no secret that Ohio State boasts a lot of depth at quarterback. The competition for the team’s starting QB role is a hot topic in Columbus, and if arm strength were the deciding factor, let’s just say junior Cardale Jones would probably run away with the job.  At today’s spring game, the Buckeyes held a “Longest Ball” competition to see how far their quarterbacks...

Video: Malachi Dupre Hauled In A Nasty Diving Touchdown Catch During LSU’s Spring Game

LSU had some issues at the quarterback position last season, with neither Anthony Jennings or Brandon Harris really separating from the other in the race. If star wide receiver Malachi Dupre can make catches like this in 2015, it will certainly make things a bit easier for whichever quarterback wins the job. Credit Harris with a well-placed ball as well. MALACHI. DUPRE. pic.twitter...

Vine: WR Noah Brown Made A Sick One-Handed Catch In Ohio State’s Spring Game

Ohio State sophomore wide receiver Noah Brown has been one of the most talked about players on the Buckeyes this spring.
