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 5

Week 4 was a week to forget on the College Football Saturday Picks. And, that is actually an understatement. We don’t just pick the winner around here. We do it against the point spread. But, we’re back today – a Saturday with two top 10 battles to highlight today’s action – for more. Lamar Jackson and Louisville visiting DeShaun Watson and Clemson, obviously highlights the action. But, we also have the surprising Wisconsin Badgers taking a trip to the ‘Big House’ to battle the Michigan Wolverines. Should be another terrific…

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. First time that’s happened in the history of the poll. If, all three lose, what a Shakeup that would be in the national landscape. But, the impact could be bigger for teams like Oklahoma and Ole Miss if they lose, because at this point they would likely be out of the College Football Playoff picture.  Now, onto my…

Critical Weekend for SEC in Big 12 vs SEC Challenge

In a lot of ways, SEC Hoops has finally seemed to turn the corner from years of mediocrity. In recent year’s, Kentucky and Florida were the only teams of any relevance when it came to it’s performance in the NCAA Tournament. Last season, saw the SEC receive five bids (Kentucky, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss). This season the league seems likely to get four. There is still plenty of time for there to be more, or less. Any push to secure more bids starts today when some of the SEC’s…

College Football Power Rankings – Week 3

BYU Freshman QB, Tanner Mangum had already defied the odds once with his Hail Mary pass to senior wide receiver, Mitch Mathews to beat Nebraska. Despite Mathews’ size (6′-6″ 215), the odds of another Hail Mary being successful had to be gigantic. Well, how gigantic were the odds of anything remotely similar happening again? The very next week? But, that’s what happened. This time there was a different target in junior, Mitchell Juergens, and this time there was still time left on the clock. However, the results are the same.…

S&S College Football Week 2 Power Rankings – Buckeyes keep their focus,Texas A&M joins the party …..

  The first week of College Football is officially in the books, and there are a few changes since the release of the preseason rankings. The news was good for Texas A&M, as they made the biggest leap after dismantling Arizona State. However, the news wasn’t so good for Penn State, and Stanford. Both teams lost on the road and took a tumble out of this week’s rankings. Other than that, most of the Top 25 teams were pretty much status quo. Urban Meyer’s Ohio State Buckeyes, avenged their only…
