With Baylor’s meeting with TCU coming up this weekend, some thoughts have reverted to the former Southwest Conference.

One Colorado freshman defender will get his first career start this Saturday against Hawaii.

Here is an interesting story on an Iowa State linebacker/safety/cornerback.

Was Kansas’ win over Georgia Tech empowered by their enormous loss to North Dakota State?

Kansas State wide receiver Aubrey Quarles has an interesting background story about his family.

This Missouri wide receiver is tied for first in receptions throughout the nation.

Nebraska safety Rickey Thenarse on Jake Locker: “We want to go out and play good defense and make him prove to the world that he’s a great quarterback. We don’t want to put him on no pedestal.”

Oklahoma will be selling portions of Owen Field’s turf to fans.

VIDEO: Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy is very impressed with Tulsa quarterback GJ Kinne.

With all their recent shuffling of running backs, Texas found out that senior tailback Vondrell McGee has been ruled academically ineligible, and will not play for the Longhorns ever again.

One freshman defender has been great for Texas A&M, logging seven tackles, two sacks, and three forced fumbles in their last victory over Louisiana Tech.
