2021-2022 cbhsports College Football 9/25 Preview

AP Top 6
1.Alabama 3-0 (1-0) Next Game: Southern Miss
2.Georgia 3-0 (1-0) Next Game: at.Vanderbilt
3.Oregon 3-0 (0-0) Next Game: Arizona
4.Oklahoma 3-0 (0-0) Next Game: West Virginia
5.Iowa 3-0 (0-0) Next Game: Colorado State
6.Penn State 3-0 (0-0) Next Game: Villanova

Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of AP Poll)
12.Notre Dame vs. 18.Wisconsin (Chicago) (Saturday, 12 PM ET, FOX)
ESPN’s College GameDay is headed to Chicago for Notre Dame-Wisconsin at Soldier Field. This game will be interesting as both need a win to prove that they are worthy of being considered for the College Football Playoff. Wisconsin has to avoid a loss as it would be their second, following a tough blow to Penn State in week one. Notre Dame has struggled to a 3-0 start with close calls against Florida State and Toledo before somewhat of an easy win against instate foe Purdue. Projected Score: Wisconsin 27, Notre Dame 23


9.Clemson at. NC State (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, ESPN)
Let’s be honest, Clemson is far removed from their championship in 2019. Without now Jacksonville Jaguar QB Trevor Lawrence and his weapons such as now Jacksonville Jaguar RB Travis Etienne as well as now Cincinnati Bengal WR Tee Higgins, Clemson’s offense is sputtering with new starter DJ Uiagalelei under center. NC State will be a test, the toughest for the Tiger’s since their opening season loss to Georgia. This could be the Tiger’s best win to give itself a chance to get back into the College Football Playoff conversation. Projected Score: Clemson 24, NC State 20


7.Texas A&M vs. 16.Arkansas (Arlington) (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, CBS)
Texas A&M will again be without starting QB Haynes King for this one. Zach Calzada will make his second consecutive start at the position and of course will be in the backfield with one of college football’s top running backs, Isaiah Spiller. Quality quarterback play is going to be needed so the ground attack by Spiller as well as potential first round pick DeMarvin Leal and the Aggie defensive line getting to Arkansas QB KJ Jefferson and putting the pressure on Arkansas. The Hogs have not been in a position like this in five years, not being ranked until last week since 2016 following a win over top-15 TCU. The Hogs beat Texas in week 2 and used that momentum to beat Georgia Southern on Saturday. KJ Jefferson’s passing game improved in game 3 for the hogs but much more will be needed out of his throws to beat the Aggies. Getting the ball to potential first round pick at wide receiver Treylon Burks is and will be more than necessary as he only as a single touchdown in 2021. Arkansas’ impressive run game includes that of the 240 pound KJ Jefferson as well as starting running back Trelon Smith, the team’s two leading rushers. Dominique Johnson, Raheim “Rocket” Sanders, and AJ Green make up the rest of Arkansas’ talented room. Arkansas’ defense has looked impressive and will need key contributions from the talented Grant Morgan, Bumper Pool, and Hayden Henry at linebacker as well as safety Jalen Catalon as well as the rest of the defense if the hogs are to go into Jerry’s World and get another program defining win two weeks after a huge win over Texas. Projected Score: Arkansas 31, Texas A&M 24

West Virginia at. 4.Oklahoma (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, ABC)
Despite being ranked number one in many pre-season polls, Oklahoma has not looked the part. QB Spencer Rattler has not looked like the Heisman favorite everyone thought he was going to be. Running the ball against a talented West Virginia team is going to be what is needed for Lincoln Riley’s Sooners to beat the Mountaineers. West Virginia’s only loss came to Maryland to open things up and has since gone 2-0, including a win over top-15 ranked Virginia Tech. Thus, West Virginia should very well be a player in this year’s Big 12 and Oklahoma cannot overlook anyone as they head into Big 12 play, aiming for their seventh consecutive Big 12 title. Projected Score: Oklahoma 38, West Virginia 34

2022 Arkansas football schedule released

The SEC released Arkansas’ 2022 football slate on Tuesday night:

9/3 Cincinnati
9/10 South Carolina
9/17 Missouri State
9/24 Texas A&M (Arlington)
10/1 Alabama
10/8 at.Misssissippi State

11/25 at.Missouri

Arkansas put together its toughest non-conference slate in recent memory, opening the season with a Cincinnati team that is ranked in the top 10. Arkansas heads to Provo to face a tough BYU team and hosts one of the top non-Power 5 teams in Liberty in Fayetteville. Arkansas opens conference play with former annual cross-division foe South Carolina before heading to Arlington to face Texas A&M. Then Arkansas returns home to face Nick Saban and Alabama before trips to Mississippi State and Auburn. Then the hogs return home to face off against LSU and Ole Miss before finishing their regular season in Columbia against Missouri.

5.Iowa 2-0 (0-0) Next Game: Kent State
6.Clemson 1-1 (0-0) Next Game: Georgia Tech

Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of AP Poll)
8.Cincinnati at. Indiana (Saturday, 12 PM ET, ESPN)
Despite a struggling start, Indiana will challenge Cincinnati and QB Desmond Ridder. Cincinnati’s path to the College Football Playoff has to include wins over Indiana and one over Notre Dame next month. Indiana, led by QB Michael Penix, has to get their offense going if they want to win this game. Projected Score: Cincinnati 38, Indiana 27

Nebraska at. 3.Oklahoma (Saturday, 12 PM ET, FOX)
Oklahoma has been upset, at least the last few years, about the number of noon eastern kick off games they have had to play, it being the major reason why the Sooners are headed to the SEC soon. In a rematch of another “game of the century”, Oklahoma should have no problems scoring versus their old rivals. But, at least a solid performance will be needed for the Sooners to defeat Scott Frost’s Corn Huskers. Projected Score: Oklahoma 45, Nebraska 21

1.Alabama at. 11.Florida (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, CBS)
In the top match up of the SEC to date this season, Alabama and Florida meet in a rematch of last season’s SEC Championship. The Crimson Tide, despite massive turnover entering last season, look as good as ever. Florida’s QB situation seems to be up in the air with backup QB Anthony Brown outplaying starting QB Emory Jones. Florida coach Dan Mullen has to make the right decision on who starts for the Gators and who can beat Alabama. Projected Score: Alabama 42, Florida 31

Georgia Tech at. 6.Clemson (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, TBD)
With no ranked games left on the schedule, Clemson has to blow out every ACC team they play. So, that is what I think Dabo Swinney and his guys will do against the Yellow Jackets. Projected Score: Clemson 45, Georgia Tech 14

22.Auburn at. 10.Penn State (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, ABC)
College GameDay heads to Happy Valley for a big “whiteout” game for Penn State as they take on an improved Auburn team. Auburn’s Bo Nix has played efficiently and can be a guy to lead the tigers over the Nittany Lions. Despite slow starts from Penn State’s offense, their defense has been fantastic and should lead them to a win. Projected Score: Penn State 24, Auburn 17

2/18-20 Illinois State
2/25 Indiana (Round Rock Classic)
2/26 Stanford (Round Rock Classic)
2/27 Louisiana (Round Rock Classic)

5/3 Missouri State
5/6-8 at.Auburn
5/13-15 Vanderbilt
5/19-21 at.Alabama
5/24-29 SEC Tournament (Hoover)

Arkansas opens the season February 18-20 against Illinois State before taking a trip to Texas for the Round Classic to face Indiana, Stanford, and Louisiana. While the competition won’t be nearly as hard as a season ago when they opened the season with wins over Texas, TCU, and Texas Tech (all nationally seeded teams last June) in the State Farm College Baseball Classic. The Diamond Hogs open March with Southeast Louisiana and continues a homestead through March 20 with series against UIC and Grambling before taking on Kentucky in Baum-Walker Stadium to open SEC play. Arkansas travels to Columbia to face Missouri. The toughest road trip in SEC play comes in early April when the Hogs travel to face Florida. The Diamond Hogs host rivals Mississippi State, LSU, Ole Miss as well as Vanderbilt, which will be four of the biggest series in the SEC and the country. Arkansas will play UAPB first on April 5 as well as April 26 when they play the Golden Lions in Little Rock at Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock.

Big 12 presidents give green light to BYU, UCF, Cincinnati, Houston

Big 12 presidents and chancellors voted on Friday to accept BYU, Central Florida, Cincinnati, and Houston into the conference. In a statement, the Big 12 said the four schools were “approved unanimously by the eight continuing members.”

The move comes less than two months after Big 12 co-founders Oklahoma and Texas announced they would join the SEC by July 1, 2025, putting the rest of the conference in a tough position. League officials moved quickly, picking top American Athletic Conference members Cincinnati, UCF, and Houston as well as independent BYU. The Big 12 was waiting until this week when those schools formally indicated they wanted to join the conference.

BYU will join the conference for the 2023-2024 season and the three AAC schools will join the conference no later than the 2024-2025 academic year according to Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby.

An ESPN article stated that “AAC bylaws require schools to give a 27-month notice before they leave and pay a $10 million buyout fee. In that scenario, joining by the 2023 season would be a long shot, but some sources have said it is realistic. An earlier exit — with a higher buyout — is always a possibility. AAC commissioner Mike Aresco told ESPN on Friday that the conference will be willing to negotiate a higher exit fee to accommodate earlier departures for the three schools.” Assuming everything goes to plan, the AAC will likely be looking for new members soon.

2.Georgia 1-0 (0-0) Next Game: UAB
3.Ohio State 1-0 (1-0) Next Game: 12.Oregon
4.Oklahoma 1-0 (0-0) Next Game: Western Carolina
5.Texas A&M 1-0 (0-0) Next Game: at.Colorado
6.Clemson 0-1 (0-0) Next Game: South Carolina State

Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of AP Poll)
12.Oregon at. 3.Ohio State (Saturday, 12 PM ET, FOX)
Behind Georgia-Clemson, this game is probably second in anticipation for the average fan in college football. Oregon struggled with talented Mountain West team Fresno State, having to mount a comeback in the fourth quarter. The Ducks also lost potential number one pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Kayvon Thibodeaux, to a sprained ankle. It is unclear if he will be able to play in Columbus, despite Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal saying, “We’re optimistic its nothing serious” per espn. Ohio State, who has been the class of the Big Ten for it seems like a decade, struggled with a gritty Minnesota team before coming back and winning. Despite the loss of Thibodeaux, the battle between Ohio State’s offense and Oregon’s talented defense is going to be the treat of 9/11 for all college football fans.

UAB at. 2.Georgia (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, ESPN2)
Despite never seeing the end zone, Georgia’s offense put themselves in a position to win against Clemson and their defense did the rest. The Dawg’s defense pummeled new Clemson starting QB DJ Uiagalelei and got a tough, hard-nosed victory over the tigers. I expect the dawgs to do the same thing against UAB. Projected Score: Georgia 38, UAB 10

5.Texas A&M at. Colorado (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, FOX)
Texas A&M easily beat Kent State in week one, but a trip to Boulder against a former Big 12 foe won’t be as easy. However, I see Texas A&M handling Colorado, despite getting a slower start than a week ago. Projected Score: Texas A&M 45, Colorado 24

Mercer at. 1.Alabama (Saturday, 4 PM ET, SECN)
Alabama crushed Miami and I expect them to do the same thing to Mercer. Projected Score: Alabama 56, Mercer 6

10.Iowa at. 9.Iowa State (Saturday, 4:30 PM ET, ABC)
GameDay announced Saturday night it was headed to Ames for the battle between instate rivals, Iowa and Iowa State. With Iowa State’s pis poor showing in week 1 against Northern Iowa, Iowa’s win over Indiana gives them the momentum to potentially come into Ames and get a win. This game will be close. Projected Score: Iowa 28, Iowa State 24

South Carolina State at. 6.Clemson (Saturday, 5 PM ET, ACCN)
Clemson should use a gut-wrenching loss to Georgia and destroy South Carolina State. Projected Score: Clemson 52, South Carolina State 6

Western Carolina at. 3.Oklahoma (Saturday, 7 PM ET, PPV)
Oklahoma, who almost lost to Tulane a week ago, will have less trouble versus Western Carolina. Projected Score: Oklahoma 63, Western Carolina 12

15.Texas at. Arkansas (Saturday, 7 PM ET, ESPN)
A rematch of one of the many, “games of the century”, comes to you Saturday night in Fayetteville. In 1969, with the hogs and horns ranked number one and two respectively, and President Richard Nixon in the crowd, Texas defeated Arkansas and went on to win the national championship that season. Even so, these two battled for football glory in the Southwest Conference all the way up until the hogs left the SWC following the 1991 season for the SEC and the conference disbanded. Now, with Texas on the verge of a move to the SEC, as soon as next season, Arkansas wants to show the longhorns there is no easy ride in the SEC. Arkansas had a lackluster first half against Rice, their week one opponent, getting down 17-7 in the second half, before rattling off 31 unanswered points to win, 38-17. Texas handled Louisiana easily 38-18, setting up an interesting match up in northwest Arkansas. It will be the first time the two rivals have met since 2014, where Arkansas defeated Texas in the Texas Bowl, 31-7. Projected Score: Texas 35, Arkansas 27

Washington at. Michigan (Saturday, 8 PM ET, ABC)
Michigan and Washington’s week ones were a tale of two different stories. Washington was upset by Montana, 13-7, and Michigan destroyed Western Michigan 47-14. The way that Michigan’s offense played was the way it needed to play against an opponent of the caliber of Western Michigan. Their defense played elite as well. But, Washington’s offense, by their one touchdown output against Montana, needs to be prepared to fix those issues. Projected Score: Michigan 27, Washington 20

Big 12 reportedly poaching BYU, three AAC schools

According to multiple reports, the Big 12 could be officially expanding as soon as next week. According to the Athletic, the conference is moving toward finalizing expansion plans to invite BYU, Central Florida (UCF), Cincinnati, and Houston. The four schools are planning to individually submit formal applications to the Big 12 early this upcoming week. Once the Big 12 receives those applications, the conference’s board of directors is expected to meet and extend formal invitations to each of those schools. All are expected to accept invitations.

According to Big 12 bylaws, “the super majority vote of 80% of the league’s board of directors is required to admit the new members.” The four schools are expected to get the majority vote required for admission to the conference. According to sources, the athletic said that this could all go through as soon as September 10. Sources confirm that the four could join the league and be ready to participate as Big 12 members as members in the fall of 2023 and the 2023-2024 academic year. The American Athletic Conference (AAC) requires a 27-month notification and $10 million dollar exit fee upon leaving the conference.

Boise State, BYU, Central Florida (UCF), Cincinnati, Houston, Memphis, SMU, and South Florida were the only eight schools considered for Big 12 expansion, sources say.

5.Georgia 0-0 (0-0) Next Game: 3.Clemson (Charlotte)
6.Texas A&M 0-0 (0-0) Next Game: Kent State

Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of AP Poll)

4.Ohio State at. Minnesota (Thursday, 8 PM ET, FOX)
Ohio State has been on top of the Big Ten for years now. Historically, beating Ohio State requires good quarterback play and tremendous defense. Hard to see the Golden Gophers knocking off the Buckeyes. Projected Score: Ohio State 45, Minnesota 24

10.North Carolina at. Virginia Tech (Friday, 6 PM ET, ESPN)
Mack Brown has UNC back where he once had them during his first tenure in Chapel Hill, having the Tar Heels winning football games. It will be a tough test to open the season on the road versus Virginia Tech. Tar Heel QB Sam Howell returns and should lead the Tar Heels to many victories including this one. Projected Score: North Carolina 31, Virginia Tech 20

2.Oklahoma at. Tulsa (Saturday, 12 PM ET, ABC)
Oklahoma’s high-powered offense should dominate Tulsa. Projected Score: Oklahoma 56, Tulane 6

19.Wisconsin at. 12.Penn State (Saturday, 12 PM ET, FOX)
One of multiple Big Ten match ups to open the year, Wisconsin and Penn State look to have rebound seasons in 2021. Quarterback play will be the determining factor in this one. Projected Score: Penn State 21, Wisconsin 17

17.Indiana at. 18.Iowa (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, BTN)
Iowa has two tough tests to open the year, first versus Indiana then a trip to Ames to take on Iowa State. Indiana returns QB Michael Penix Jr. and should have a great defense under Tom Allen yet again. This will be a close one. Projected Score: Iowa 28, Indiana 24

1.Alabama at. 14.Miami (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, ABC)
Alabama should dominate Miami, despite a young offense and new offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien. Projected Score: Alabama 49, Miami 21

23.Louisiana at. 21.Texas (Saturday, 4:30 PM ET, FOX)
Texas and Louisiana meet in Austin, in a match up of two top-25 teams. Bill Napier is not going to let new Texas coach Steve Sarkisian kill his Ragin Cajun’s, just a year after defeating Big 12 runner-up Iowa State to open the 2020 season. Projected Score: Louisiana 35, Texas 31

5.Georgia vs. 3.Clemson (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, ABC)
Easily the most hyped up game of the season, Georgia and Clemson will meet in a potential College Football Playoff Preview. This game will be decided by quarterback play. Georgia’s JT Daniels and Clemson’s DJ Uiagalelei will battle and try to get their team’s back to the CFP. This game is hard for me to pick just because of how talented both teams are. But until Georgia wins a big game, I am going with the tigers. Projected Score: Clemson 38, Georgia 34

9.Notre Dame at. Florida State (Sunday, 7:30 PM ET, ABC)
Notre Dame, despite losing a lot to the NFL in 2020, should handle an improving Florida State. But as Lee Corso would say, this game is going to be “closer than the experts think”. Projected Score: Notre Dame 42, Florida State 31

Louisville vs. Ole Miss (Atlanta) (Monday, 8 PM ET, ESPN)
This game is interesting. Ole Miss’ offense is elite but its defense is awful. Louisville has average offensive and defensive units. Ole Miss should win but it won’t be as easy as many optimist’s think. Projected Score: Ole Miss 49, Louisville 28

Arkansas releases full 2021-2022 non-conference slate

Arkansas released its full 2021-2022 non-conference slate on Monday. Here is everything we know about their slate so far:

11/9 Mercer
11/13 Gardner-Webb
11/17 Northern Iowa
11/22 Kansas State (Kansas City,MO) (Hall of Fame Classic)
11/23 Cincinnati/Illinois (Kansas City,MO) (Hall of Fame Classic)
11/28 Penn
12/1 Central Arkansas
12/4 Little Rock
12/7 Charlotte
12/11 Oklahoma (Tulsa)
12/18 Hofstra (North Little Rock)
12/21 Elon
TBA All conference games
1/29 West Virginia (Big 12/SEC Challenge)

Takeaways:
Arkansas will not play a true road game in their 2021-2022 non conference slate but will still be tasked with some difficult games. Arkansas will play both Central Arkansas and Little Rock, the first time ever that Arkansas will play two instate non conference games ever in men’s basketball. The next step should be seeing one of those two facing the Razorbacks in North Little Rock in Simmons Bank Arena. However, the Razorbacks will face Hofstra in North Little Rock the Saturday before Christmas. Playing Kansas State before a potential match up with Cincinnati or Illinois will make or break Arkansas’ November slate. Just two weeks later, the Muss Bus will head to Tulsa to face Oklahoma, led by new head coach Porter Moser. With how talented Arkansas is, fans should expect Arkansas to win all of their non-conference games outside of all of their “Power 6” opponents.

When the full Razorback schedule comes out with conference games, I will make an update post. I will preview and make all of my predictions for the Razorback men’s basketball 2021-2022 season, which will come out November 8, the day before their season tips off.

Bates joins Duren as Memphis commits (CBB News)

Hey guys, since college football returned today, I decided to make a college basketball news post. Here it is:

On Wednesday, Forward Emoni Bates joined big man Jalen Duren as Memphis commits and will join the program this year. Earlier this month, I wrote about Bates and Duren announcing they would skip their senior year and reclassify from 2022 to 2021. The once clear top two prospects in the class of 2022 are now ranked number four and five respectfully in the 2021 247Sports Composite. Bates chose Memphis over the G-League, Michigan State (where he was formerly committed to), and Oregon. Duren picked Memphis over the G-League, Kentucky, Miami, and the Australian NBL.

(Sorry guys there wasn’t much other than that. Make sure you are ready for my week 1 college football preview, coming out on Thursday :).

5 (interconference) Match-Ups to look out for this season:
1. 3.Clemson vs. 5.Georgia (Charlotte) (September 4, 7:30 PM ET, ABC)
Easily the most anticipated game of the season will be played in Charlotte on the opening Saturday of the season. Clemson sports new starting quarterback DJ Uiagalelei who played two fantastic games in 2020 with Trevor Lawrence out with COVID-19. On the other side, JT Daniels enters his first full season as Georgia’s starter since transferring from home state USC. This game, however, is going to be determined on the defensive side of the ball. Georgia does have some questions on both sides of the ball, especially with star tight end Arik Gilbert not with the team but they have to replace many of their defensive backs. Clemson looks stronger on defense.
2. 11.Oregon at. 4.Ohio State (September 11, 12 PM ET, FOX)
Behind the game in Charlotte, Oregon-Ohio State is the second most anticipated game of the year. While Oregon is the most talented team in the Pac-12, especially defensively, Ohio State should dominate this game, as the Big Ten has done to the Pac-12 since the inception of the College Football Playoff. Expected starter CJ Stroud should lead the Buckeyes to a “W” at home.
3. 8.Cincinnati at. 9.Notre Dame (October 2, 2:30 PM ET, NBC)
On my birthday, Cincinnati faces Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish were a playoff team last season only to get stomped by Alabama. Cincinnati held a lead in the Peach Bowl for much of the game versus Georgia only to give it up in the fourth quarter. Thus, this game will be close.
4. 18.Iowa at. 7.Iowa State (September 11, 4:30 PM ET, ABC)
Iowa State was phenomenal last season. Will they back up their Big 12 runner-up season with a flop or will they win a Big 12 title? The Cyclone’s first big test comes at home versus instate rival Iowa. Iowa’s style of running the football, throwing it to the tight end, and having a gritty defense will definitely put the Cyclones up for a test.
5. 1.Alabama vs. 14.Miami (Atlanta) (September 4, 3:30 PM ET, ABC)
Of course, I had to include the reigning national champions here. Alabama comes off of yet another national championship, losing their starting QB (Mac Jones), two starting receivers (Heisman winner DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle), and their starting running back (Najee Harris) to the NFL. Not to mention, Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian left to be the head coach at Texas. So, new offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien will be tasked with putting another talented offense together led by new starting QB Bryce Young, senior RB Brian Robinson and others. Miami QB D’Eriq King and the Hurricanes will have to be ready to face the Tide.
