College Football Saturday Week 8 Picks

Week 8 of College Football 2016 is here, and so is Sports & Swag’s College Football Saturday Week 8 Picks. And, what a Saturday it should be, especially in the SEC. Three games between ranked teams, including sixth-ranked Texas A&M visiting top-ranked Alabama. I’ll give you my take on all three of those games, my Road Dog of the Week, and two other games from around the country. Last week, we went 4-2 against the number, losing with Ole Miss and Ohio State. We did get the Road Dog of…

College Football Saturday Picks – Week 3

Sportsandswag.com College Football Saturday Picks are back, and what a Saturday it should be! The top 3 teams in the AP and Coaches poll all have true road tests against ranked opponents.

College Football: Week 8 Rewind

Deja Vu? Florida State and Notre Dame have given us some great moments in college football history. Probably the most well known was the 1993 game in South Bend. Both teams came in unbeaten, with FSU and the Irish ranked one and two respectively. In that game, quarterback Charlie Ward and the Seminoles were turned away on the on the goal line in the game’s final seconds. With the Irish leading 31-24, Ward’s pass in the end zone was batted down to seal the game. Ward, went on to win…
