Anyone watching this year? Rutgers finally won a Big Ten game.

Not sure if that's due to Schiano being back as coach (he did improve the recruiting). Or maybe Michigan State just doesn't have a good team this year.

I'll take the W either way. Between being a Rutgers fan and a NY Giants fan those are few and far between. :lol:

I've been watching a little, all of Coastal Carolina's games have been on TV so far this season. I missed Saturday's game, it was on ESPNU and I don't get that channel. Coastal upgraded its program to what the NCAA used to call Division 1, it's called something else now, before the 2017 season. They moved to the Sun Belt Conference and were at or near the bottom the first 3 years. This year they're 5-0 and for the first time in history they were ranked last week, they just snuck in at #25. They're up to #20 this week. They have 2 or 3 home games left, I might have to look into going to a game. The campus is about 12 miles away.

The Aggies had a bye week last weekend. Now on to the second half of the schedule. Maybe we won't be cursed and can have a decent year? Maybe?

I only watch when OSU (Oklahoma State) is playing, cause E went there. College sports was not a big thing for me growing up. One brother went to NIU, one brother went to SIU (Illinois teams), neither majored in sports. E's enthusiasm for OSU has gotten me interested :)

Congrats & thank you for the Victory Scarlet Knights!

I'll let you know after this weekend when our Michigan Wolverines play them. Let's just say Sparty is a 24 point underdog. Hopefully that will be the halftime spread!

Seminoles fan here (family member went there; my alma mater does not have a football team)...was hoping the team would quickly buy-in to the new head coach's philosophy but that was wishful thinking. I think it was a fluke that we beat UNC a couple of weeks ago.

All Everything Clemson star QB & expected #1 2021 NFL draft pick Trevor Lawrence has tested positive for Covid-19. He says he's only feeling minor symptoms.
Will definitely miss this weekends game vs. Boston College & is on the cusp of being not available for the following week vs. Notre Dame. We'll see if has any impact on Clemson staying undefeated.

Rutgers hosts Michigan is a few weeks. Gotta get past Indiana tomorrow, and then Ohio State and Illinois first. Really hoping that we're at least competitive.

The Aggies gave the Cocks a good beating yesterday. Then last night Washington State played Oregon State and the Cougars licked the Beavers. Oregon State might have better luck against the USC Trojans, they'd have protection.

At least South Carolina still beat Auburn which was a significant win for their program. Auburn isn't great this year but they had everyone available for that game including Bo Nix and Seth Williams. Texas A&M is on a whole different level- other than their loss to Alabama (which was expected), they have looked very impressive. Jimbo Fisher is doing a great job there and got his signature win earlier this year over Florida.

The Battered Aggie Syndrome runs deep. My team is looking good but I still don't know which team to expect out on the field each week. :lol:

Oklahoma State lost to Texas in overtime on Halloween. That was a great game to watch between two Big 12 title contenders. And OSU wore orange and black so it was fitting for the holiday.

The Aggies were Phil Steele's #1 surprise team for this season in his annual preview magazine. He said that all of their SEC games other than Alabama were very winnable, and that is exactly how it has played out so far. Playing in the same division as Alabama is the only thing that really hurts their cause, as talent wise A&M is good enough to be a playoff team. Ohio State and Bama are locks for the playoff (if it happens), and the ACC champ be it ND or Clemson will also very likely get in. That leaves one spot remaining. If every team in the Pac 12 ends up with one or more losses, then A&M might have a case for that fourth spot despite not playing in the SEC title game. Florida will win the SEC East and A&M owns a win over them as well.
