When Texas State Football Wins: The Big Picture
The Big Three, led by Texas A&M, is in first place in the AAC West, thanks to the Aggies’ 10-1 record.
And the Aggie’s offense is doing all the scoring, with quarterback Jalen Hurts averaging 9.8 yards per carry.
But, that is only the start of the big picture for the Aggieland.
We can’t forget the team’s other star player, junior quarterback Dak Prescott, who has rushed for more than 4,000 yards in two seasons.
The Aggies also have a new star in senior defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who had three sacks in 2016.
The defensive line is also solid, with three All-Americans, including tackle Jourdan Lewis.
And there is a ton of talent on offense.
Junior quarterback Derek Carr and sophomore running back Alvin Kamara have already proven themselves to be two of the nation’s top quarterbacks, and they are going to get better as the season progresses.
The other major surprise of the season, though, is that there is no big-name returnee in the conference standings.
Baylor’s offense was so dominant that the Bears have not won more than four games in a season since 2012, and the Bears still hold the No. 1 overall seed in the division, even though they are 0-7 in Big 12 play.
What we need to know about the conference: The College Football Playoff is set to begin play on Feb. 10, 2019.
There are only eight teams that have qualified for the tournament and four teams that are already ranked.
The top four seeds, which are Alabama, Clemson, Florida State and Notre Dame, will be seeded first and second in the first round.
The first-round matchups will be played in New Orleans on Feb 25.
Who should win it all?
Alabama is a national title contender with a quarterback named Johnny Manziel and a defense that is a top 10 unit in the country.
The Crimson Tide can boast a 6-2 record and a national ranking of No. 8 in the AP poll.
The team also has a top-five offense led by quarterback Jalens Garrett, who averaged 6.3 yards per attempt last season.
Clemson also has plenty of talent, but its defense has been inconsistent at times.
That could change this year, as quarterback Deshaun Watson is expected to make a big impact.
The Tigers have one of the best offensive lines in the SEC, led in particular by left tackle Laremy Tunsil.
The defense has struggled mightily in recent seasons, but the Tigers are hoping to find some semblance of a groove this season with the return of two starters from last season’s championship team.
Notre Dame has a lot of talent and a solid defense, but has not won a conference title since 2008.
The Irish have a top offense led in large part by quarterback DeShone Kizer.
But they have struggled mightly in recent years, as they are 8-4 in the Big Ten and 1-4 against ranked opponents this season.
Which teams will finish first in the league?
Alabama, Baylor, LSU, Tennessee, Texas A.&M.
And Notre Dame.
That’s a pretty good start for any team.
How will this week’s College Football playoff shape up?
It will definitely play a major role in the outcome of the College Football Playoffs.
And it will also make for some interesting predictions for the College Basketball Playoff.
For the first time since 2010, there will be a national champion.
The winners of the conference championship will face the champion of the Big 12 or Big Ten.
The champions of the ACC, Pac-12 and SEC will meet in the second round.
Will the Pac-10 or SEC be the conference champions?
The ACC is just the latest major conference to lose a title, while the SEC and Pac-8 have lost titles in each of the last three years.
What will be the impact of the national title on the College Games?
The Big 12 and Pac, the two conferences with the best conference records, are not going to be the favorites to win the national championship.
The Pac-11 and SEC have been dominant in the postseason, with the SEC losing a national championship last year.
And with Alabama winning the SEC title and Clemson winning the ACC title, there is little reason to believe that the conference would be favored to repeat.
In other words, there could be a lot to like about the Big 10 and Pac 12, but that doesn’t mean that the rest of the league will be any better.
Who will be playing the best in the College Championships?
Texas A & M has the best record in the ACC and is projected to win it in Atlanta.
The Fighting Irish are expected to win both the ACC (No. 1) and Big 12 (No.) titles.
But there is also the possibility that the winner of the SEC championship will take home the Big East championship.
