Monday--July 20th, 2015

The Buffalo blog "Bull Run" reviews last November's game against UMass and says "No Frohnapfel, No problem."

State previews Buffalo.

Hustle Belt's "top-70 players in the MAC" features Bulls WR Ron Willoughby. He went 5-90 and had a 38 yard TD against the Minutemen in the November game featured above.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------- previews Ball State.


The Orlando Sentinel previews Temple.


Five Notre Dame Game Day traditions.


The ACC conference is having its Media Days. The Boston College blog "BC Interruption looks at the Coastal Division story lines.

I was reading my preseason college football magazines over the weekend and contemplated Boston College. The Eagles may have a tough time being bowl-qualified this year. They play two FCS teams (Maine and Howard) and only one FCS win counts towards bowl eligibility. It probably doesn't help their season ticket sales either.

Probable BC losses include:

Florida State (consensis ACC champion)
@ Clemson
@ Louisville (BC lost last year at home 19-38)
Virginia Tech (Phil Steele's pick to win the Coastal Division)
Notre Dame (a Top-15 or better pick by the preseason magazines)

That means the Eagles need to win all five of their remaining games:

Northern Illinois (11-3 last year)
@ Duke (9-4 last year)
Wake Forest
NC State  (8-5 last year)
@ Syracuse


CBS Sports as a post on "Five of the most disrespected teams in college football". Future UMass opponents BYU and Mississippi State make the list.
