Brugler: Draft Stock Report - Michigan's Hurst could be No. 1 senior
With the Michigan offense struggling to put together a complete game, the Wolverines' defense has had to carry the team this season, led by Hurst on the defensive line.

Rang: LSU's Chark picks perfect time to Flash elite skills

Brugler: Draft Stock Report - Damien Harris running like the SEC's top running back
It is tough for an Alabama running back to be "underrated" but that seems to be the case with Harris, sharing the backfield duties with Bo Scarbrough.

First and 20: Lone Star State rises again
The state of the state of Texas football was bad last season. How bad was it?

Rob Rang's Big Board: Barkley No. 1?
The NFL's stance on the national anthem may be the most controversial issue in sports today but for scouts tasked with finding the league's next superstar, the bigger debate might center on just which underclassman deserves to be ranked No. 1 overall. Quarterbacks are logical candidate with Southern Cal's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen...Read More
Stanford's Love looms for No. 20 Utah
Can any defense stop Bryce Love? That's the question No. 20 Utah will try to answer when it hosts Stanford on Saturday.

If Utah finds a way to contain the junior, it will be mapping uncharted territory...Read More

Brugler: Draft Stock Report - Barkley-Jewell matchup results in boost
Already considered a top-10 pick, Barkley doesn't have much room to ascend, but he is making a strong case to be considered the best talent, regardless of position, for the 2018 NFL Draft. On Saturday night in Iowa, he touched the ball 40 times for a career-best...Read More

Dane Brugler - Stock Report: Scouts excited over progress of QB Fitzgerald

Rob Rang's Big Board: Clemson defenders on the rise
Deshaun Watson and an extraordinary group of draft-eligible skill position talent earned the spotlight last season for the national champion Clemson Tigers. Quarterback Kelly Bryant is making his own waves but if the Tigers return to their third consecutive title game, it will be difference-makers along the line of line of scrimmage -- third-year stars...Read More
Gimino: Week 3, First and 20 - Clemson has another star QB in Bryant
About the only thing most people knew in the offseason about Kelly Bryant was that he wasn't Deshaun Watson. That's where the doubts about Clemson repeating as the national champion began. Bryant wasn't Deshaun Watson. Nobody was Deshaun Watson. That was kind of the problem. No Deshaun Watson, no national title. Three games into...Read More
Rang: Rudolph shows NFL form in rout
Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph made a strong statement to Heisman voters and NFL scouts Saturday, throwing for 423 yards and five touchdowns in the first half as the visiting Cowboys crushed Pittsburgh 59-21.

The Cowboys were leading 56-14...Read More
Game of the Week: Clemson at Louisville
Big games don't faze Clemson coach Dabo Swinney. In fact, he relishes meetings like the one his third-ranked Tigers face Saturday when they open Atlantic Coast Conference play at No. 14 Louisville. Kickoff time is 8 p.m. ET for the a nationally televised (ABC) clash of Atlantic Division contenders at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. "Louisville is an outstanding team and that's a difficult place to play," Swinney said. "But it's...Read More

Week 2: Dane Brugler - Mayfield plants his flag to be the top-rated senior QB
After the Sooners were defeated handedly by the Buckeyes last year, Oklahoma marched into Columbus last Saturday and defeated a very talented Ohio State squad. Urban Meyer's squad was out-played and out-coached, but the most noticeable difference was one team had a playmaker at quarterback, the other team didn't....Read More
First and 20: Sooners deliver statement by slaying Buckeyes
Filed under things we did not think we'd see: Casual Bob Stoops, shirt untucked, standing in a suite at Ohio Stadium, first-pumping the play of the Oklahoma Sooners in their victory over Ohio State.
