NCAA Football 2015 NEWS AND UPDATES
8/13/15 - Changes are coming to the NCAA this season. As players and fans gear up for the rapidly approaching first games of the 2015-2016, they’ll have to observe a few new rules. Fans, rest easy. These new rules are largely enforced to protect the safety of the players, not change the game. One of the rules will allow a conference or school to add an eighth official, making calls more efficient and easier to spot. The new code of conduct also includes a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike behavior including pushing and pulling following a fumble. Officials can also eject a player from the field for illegal equipment like exposed back pads. Come see how these new changes affect your favorite team at kickoff in just a few weeks!
8/5/15 - Pretty soon the leaves will be changing color and fall will be here, and with that comes the start of another NCAA Football season. The anticipation always sparks a lot of chatter amongst sports fans, including predictions of teams who will make the top 25. Most lists include major powerhouses from last year such as Ohio State, TCU, Alabama and the Oregon Ducks, but this year’s list also puts Notre Dame back in the top five, despite a disappointing 8-5 record last season. Other teams to watch include Baylor, Michigan State, USC, Florida State, and Oregon. If last year was any indication, the new playoff system will not only lead to an exciting postseason, but will also add to the overall fan experience all season long. It all begins in less than a month, so be sure to have your tickets in hand!
7/29/15 - The month of August is finally here and that means that NCAA Football is just around the corner! The 2015 Amway Coaches Preseason Poll was recently published, leading to speculation about which teams will take it all the way this season. It was no surprise to see defending national champs Ohio State on top of the rankings, but other teams were a little more shocking. USC, for example, is ranked a dismal number 10 spot. The Trojans are an extremely well rounded team with a stacked offense and defense, so don’t be surprised to see them win a few upsets this year. The first games of the regular season kick off in just a few short weeks, so don’t miss your chance to see how it all unfolds for your favorite team.
7/22/15 - Some family ties paid off for the Buckeyes this week in NCAA Football, as national No. 3 prospect Nick Bosa committed to Ohio State in an announcement that couldn’t have shocked many. Although the much-hyped defensive end had met with both Florida and Florida State last week, confidence was high that he would ultimately land in Ohio, following in the footsteps of older brother Joey, an All-American DE himself. Pundits are all weighing in on the favorites in this year’s upcoming college football season, with dark horse candidates ranging from Oklahoma to Stanford to UCLA. Who will ultimately prevail and punch their respective ticket to the College Football Playoffs? You’ll have to wait and see—but you don’t need to wait to secure your tickets for opening day! Get yours now!
7/15/15 - There are a bevy of talented recruits on the radar in the upcoming NCAA Football season, but only a select few will rise to the top. Early estimations are all over the board but there is healthy buzz around Auburn defensive end Byron Cowart. With great hands and outstanding footwork, his pass rush contributions will be key for the Tigers this year. Derwin James of Florida State University is a safety to watch, an instinct-driven player with all-around talent and a penchant for hard hits. Last but not least, the Crimson Tide have secured the services of wide receiver Calvin Ridley, who Lane Kiffin will look to as a primary target for whichever quarterback ultimately lands the starting spot for Alabama. Football kicks off in just a few weeks and tickets are on sale right now!
7/8/15 - The 2015 NCAA football season may still be weeks away, but that doesn't stop people from starting their speculation early. Rankings for the new season have already begun. Additionally, with the preseason officially underway, many of the official watch lists for the major individual awards for each season have started being released. Many of these lists have 30 to 60 players, demonstrating how anything can change as the preseason and season continue. The 2015 John Mackey Award Preseason Watch List, which awards the most outstanding tight end, currently includes 33 players, including Jerell Adams, Jake Butt, and Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick. While the players start working towards the new season, fans can already get their tickets for any of the games in the 2015 season with Razorgator.
7/1/15 - One of the most talked about NCAA football interviews that occurred this week was between Michigan head coach, Jim Harbaugh and Colin Cowherd, host of ESPN Radio. The interview was nothing short of awkward and boring. Cowherd continually asked question after question to former 49er’s coach, Harbaugh and continued to receive short, uninformative answers. The interview was going so poorly that Cowherd finally took matters into his own hands by cutting off Harbaugh after seven minutes of painful interviewing. After cutting Harbaugh short, Cowherd then slammed the Michigan coach by stating if he was being recruited and just heard this interview, he would choose another school over Michigan. See if this interview really has an impact on the recruiting process for Michigan when college football starts this September.
6/24/15 - NCAA Football pre-season kicks off in just a few short weeks, and the league is already gearing up for a groundbreaking season. This year, the NCAA is set to rule on a motion that would allow football players to rejoin their schools after declaring entry into the draft, which is already newly added protocol for NCAA basketball players. As the policy currently stands, once a player declares he will join the draft in mid-January, he is no longer eligible to continue enrollment at his school. The problem arises when players aren’t selected in the draft, and then are unable to continue studying and earn a degree. The motion for change is part of a larger strategy that seeks to make the NCAA more player friendly.
6/17/15 - This year’s NCAA Football season won’t kick off until the start of September but odds makers are already hard at work analyzing the incoming field. The Crimson Tide (5-2 odds) are favored to take the SEC crown, holding an edge over their longtime rivals Auburn (15-4). Georgia, LSU, and Ole Miss are the teams rounding out the top five in the Southeastern Conference. Following last year’s thrilling College Football Playoff victory, Ohio State (1-2) is the odds-on favorite to win the Big Ten. Among Pac-12 teams, Oregon’s Ducks find themselves with 9-4 odds followed closely by USC (11-4). The season kick-off date is still weeks away but it’s not too early to claim your tickets! Seats are on sale now for all of 2015’s regular season games.
6/8/15 - NCAA football coaches are always looking to the future. At Syracuse University, the coach looked a little too far into the future, at least for a joke. Football coach Scott Schafer sent a good-natured scholarship letter to SU alum and TV/radio sportscaster Adam Schien’s one-month old son. In more serious news from the league, there is new information about the class-action concussions lawsuit, led by a former Eastern Illinois football player, Adrian Arrington. There was a proposed settlement for $75 million, but Arrington has decided to withdraw support from the settlement and fire his lawyer, believing that the provisions of the settlement are too weak to actually make a difference for players. As the teams and players regroup for the summer, fans can go ahead and get tickets for the upcoming season.
6/3/15 - Following a successful inaugural College Football Championship Tournament, the upcoming NCAA season is primed to be an exciting one. Experts are predicting strong performances from many of the regular powerhouses throughout the Division I ranks, including the Oregon Ducks, Florida State Seminoles, Ohio State Buckeyes, and of course, the Alabama Crimson Tide. However, a new contender is expected to crack the top ranks this season: the TCU Horned Frogs. Gary Patterson will have lofty goals to reach in order for his team’s season to be considered a success, but with six conference championships won across three different leagues, the confidence and tools are certainly in place. 2015 NCAA Football tickets are on sale now for all of your favorite teams! Secure yours now for the best seat selection!
5/27/15 - It is now less than 100 days until the NCAA Football season kicks off in September. It may seem like it is still far off, but the upcoming season is right around the corner. In fact, it is now the time that wagers for who will take the championship start flaring up. Statistically, Ohio State has the highest chance, having won 11 times to date. While many are placing their money on Ohio State, others are looking elsewhere. There are three teams with 10 wins after all. Some people are even supporting Kansas, even though they are bringing up the rear with only won 1.5 times. They certainly do have a very promising schedule lined up. Whoever you are rooting for, be sure to pick up your tickets early.
5/12/15 - Michigan has one of the biggest football programs in the country and recently took up a new coach, Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh has definitely stirred the pot since arriving in Ann Arbor. This week it was reported that Michigan confessed to participating in four minor violations since the arrival of Harbaugh. After looking over the violations, each mess up was considered very minor and unintended. One of the violations occurred during the recruitment of Wayne Lyons, who is a college transfer from Stanford. The second violation was due to Harbaugh signing a helmet and sending it to a high school for scholarship reasons. Last, the third mistake was made when prime seating was given to a potential athlete when he attended the Yost Ice Arena. As time goes on Harbaugh will continue to work through all of the college rules and soon be acclimated.
5/8/15 - Although the 2015 – 2016 NCAA football season is still months away, many are already looking forward to the postseason playoffs. In fact, on Tuesday the NCAA approved plans to add three new college football bowl games following the end of regular season games. The postseason will now feature bowl games in Tucson, AZ, Austin, TX, and Orlando, FL. These additions take the total bowl game count up to 42, giving six more teams the opportunity to experience the playoffs. The bowl game in Tucson will feature teams from the Mountain West Conference and Conference USA. The other two bowl games will feature teams from American Athletic Conference and Sun Belt Conference. Come see it all unfold when college football season kicks off later this year.
5/1/15 - Although the start of the NCAA football season is still a few months away, recruitment is underway. Not all recruitment tools work to the schools' advantages; however. Texas A&M recently made the news for a promotional tweet that went sour. Ahead of the NFL draft, they sent out a tweet that alluded to their former star Johnny Manziel's first round pick in last year's draft. However, Manziel has had a tough year and A&M has not won a national championship in many years, leading to several mock tweets. Another important news item in NCAA football is the potential that during June's Collegiate Commissioner's Association meeting, an early NCAA signing period may be approved. While the teams are preparing for next season, be
sure to get your tickets early so you do not miss any games.
4/23/15 - Even though it seems like college football just ended, there is still a lot happening during the off season. One of the biggest college teams, Auburn, named their starting quarterback for the 2015 season this week. Coach Gus Malzahn has chosen Jeremy Johnson who played as the backup to Nick Marshall for the last two seasons. Johnson has played well and hit many of his goals during spring training, which led him to fit this coveted position. In other news, Pierre Ingram, Cal’s assistant coach has been placed on administrative leave due to his arrest for solicitation. It is still unknown if Ingram will return to the team after this situation is worked out. Get excited for more news and the upcoming NCAA football games that are right around the corner. Purchase your tickets early so you don’t miss out on your chance to see all of the action live.
1/6/15 - This year has been great for NCAA football bowl games. There were a lot of competitive games, but one of the best ones this year was the Goodyear Cotton Bowl. The game featured some dynamic teams in Michigan State and Baylor. The Baylor Bears, ranked 5th coming into this game, almost had the win. At the end of the game, though, MSU blocked a field goal that eventually led to the go-ahead touchdown. MSU ended up winning 42-41, and it doesn’t get any better than this. A huge reason MSU did so well was because of their running back, Jeremy Langford. He ended up rushing for 162 yards with three touchdowns. He was an unstoppable force. The Vizio Fiesta Bowl was also entertaining to watch, which featured Boise State and Arizona. Boise State ended up winning 38-30.
12/31/14 - It’s bowl season in college football, and so far, there have been a lot of fun games. One of the more memorable thus far was the Belk Bowl, which featured Georgia vs. Louisville. Both teams were highly ranked coming into the bowl, but it was Georgia who shined. They ended up winning 37-14. A top performer for them was Nick Chubb. He went on to rush for 269 yards and had 2 touchdowns. It was a workmen-like performance from him, helping Georgia control the clock. Another great game was the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl. Notre Dame ended up winning 31-28, ending their season on a positive note. A huge reason for their victory was because of their running backs, Malik Zaire and C.J. Prosise. Each had 1 touchdown and rushed for nearly 100 yards each.
12/22/14 - December is here, and for football fans across the globe, it’s time for the bowl games.

It was a closely contested game, but Memphis pulled it out late in the fourth, winning 55-48. Paxton Lynch, Memphis’ quarterback, threw for 306 yards and had 4 touchdowns. Another memorable bowl game was the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl. Utah, the 22nd ranked team in the nation, dominated the entire game. They won 45-10, showing how powerful and exciting their offense can be. A huge reason for their success was because of their running back, Devontae Booker. He rushed for 162 yards and had one touchdown.

Barrett, to a fractured right ankle. With Barrett likely out for the rest of the season, the Buckeyes pursuit of a conference title is in jeopardy.

The Gophers next take on the Wisconsin Badgers, a game that will determine a trip to the Big Ten. The Florida State Seminoles continue to dominate NCAA football, but this week Alabama rocks the rankings.
