2011 College Football Pre-Season Rankings

#1 Auburn Tigers

The Top Ranked Auburn Tigers without Cam Newton will hope to repeat in 2011.

With the NFL labor dispute threatening the 2011 NFL season, college football is gearing up and is ready to satisfy your football fix.  Although summer seemingly just begun, many college football programs are beginning their summer camps in preparation for the first game in early September.  It’s hard to believe that is only a month and a half away!

The 2011 NCAA Football season should be another exciting one as prominent football programs Nebraska and Colorado changed conferences.  The Nebraska Cornhuskers decided to leave the Big 12 and join the Big 10.  This could not have come at a better time for the Big 10 as annual BCS contenders Ohio State’s future is up in the air following the NCAA investigation of Jim Tressel and Terrelle Pryor deciding not to come back.  The Colorado Buffaloes also decided to join the ranks of the PAC 10 and will be sure to form some natural rivalries with schools on the west coast.

To no ones surprise, the 2010-11 BCS National Champions Auburn Tigers are the preseason favorites this year.  It will be interesting to see if they can overcome the loss of the dynamic Cam Newton and continue their unbeaten streak.  If they have trouble adjusting, the TCU Horned Frogs will have a shot at the BCS crown.  The would be quite a feat for a team from the Mountain West. PAC 10 powerhouses Oregon and Stanford, along with LSU and Alabama of the SEC also have strong teams heading into the season and could contend for a National Championship.  The rest of the Free Ticket Classifieds Blog top 10 is below:

College Football Bowl Game Schedule

Fall is here and its time for Bowl Season!

The College Football Bowl season is nearly upon us and the race for a National Champion is as confusing as ever.  At this point in the season only 5 teams remain unbeaten: Oregon Ducks (8-0), Boise State Broncos (7-0), Auburn Tigers (9-0), TCU Horned Frogs (9-0), and Utah Utes (8-0).  PAC-10 leader Oregon is currently sitting atop the college football rankings with both Boise State and Auburn closing in on them. Most surprising is the fact that only 2 teams currently in the BCS title game picture are from major conferences.  Boise State of the WAC and TCU and Utah of the Mountain West conferences are poised to make their case for being invited to their first BCS Championship game.  It finally appears as if teams from mid-major conferences are getting the respect they deserve.

With the plenty of college football left to be played, there will undoubtedly be more shake-ups to come.  Auburn has a particularly tough road ahead with a tough road game against the Georgia Bulldogs and the SEC Championship game.  Utah and TCU will play each other this weekend so one will eliminate themselves from the race rather quickly.  Oregon has on its schedule a game against the Washington Huskies and the Arizona Wildcats.  Perhaps the easy road is that of Boise State.  While they still have a tough game against Hawaii, games against Fresno State and Utah State should be a cakewalk.
