Surprise star of the weekend: Texas A&M kicker Daniel LaCamera

EVERY COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEKEND, WE'LL PICK OUT A PLAYER IN THE FBS RANKS WHO ROSE ABOVE EXPECTATIONS.

The Aggies haven’t been the most reliable team in Texas this season, but they may have the most reliable kicker. Daniel LaCamera has made 10-of-12 field goals with a long of 52, which came last week against Alabama. He’s also perfect on 24 extra point attempts. But no performance has been as clutch as the night he put together in…

Five questions that have to be asked after Texas college football Week 6

Red River just got a little more intriguing, and TCU now represents the Big 12 for the rest of 2017.

Who’s feeling more confident heading into the Red River Rivalry? Had things gone according to plan on Saturday, Oklahoma would have rolled Iowa State and Texas, win or lose vs. Kansas State, would roll into the Cotton Bowl with nothing but a big chip on its shoulder. Nobody would expect the Longhorns to win, and knocking off your bitter rival…

Friday Night Five: Hawley’s Quay Stokes is a football cyborg

THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF RESULTS EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT DURING FOOTBALL SEASON, BUT WE'LL SPOTLIGHT FIVE EACH WEEK THAT MADE HEADLINES.

Hawley 28, Seymour 0 We’re pretty big fans of Hawley QB Quay Stokes at DCTF. He was one of our “Money Players” to watch in the 2016 summer edition of the magazine, and that was after a stellar sophomore campaign heading into his junior year. Never heard of him? Just watch his tape. The dude can play, and while headlines…

Surprise star of the weekend: SMU WR Trey Quinn

EVERY COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEKEND, WE'LL PICK OUT A PLAYER IN THE FBS RANKS WHO ROSE ABOVE EXPECTATIONS.

If you’ve been watching SMU’s first few games of the season, you’re used to seeing Quinn as an integral part of the Mustangs’ aerial assault. So to say his significant role in SMU’s win over UConn might be a bit of a stretch, but if you don’t pay attention to SMU, let us alert you to the fact that the…

Friday Night Five: Westfield keeps rolling and DeLeon shows it’s for real

THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF RESULTS EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT DURING FOOTBALL SEASON, BUT WE'LL SPOTLIGHT FIVE EACH WEEK THAT MADE HEADLINES.

Spring Westfield 15, Spring 12 The Mustangs have been the sleeper wrecking ball in 6A ever since a 37-20 win over Galena Park North Shore to open the season. Rivalry games have a way of snapping narratives in half, and this slugfest was an extraordinary example of just that. It ended in dramatic fashion, too. The Mustangs are still rolling…

The Texas Longhorn defense won the weekend

During college football season, we’ll let you know who won every weekend in the Texas FBS ranks.

For a moment, ignore the disasters at the end of each half. Yeah, they weren’t great, but consider how this was supposed to go. USC was a 17-point favorite, and most agreed that if Texas could keep it close, that would be considered progress after the debacle against Maryland to open the season. Remember the hype the ‘Horns were up…

We finally got football from border to border in Texas for the first time this season following the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, and it couldn’t come soon enough.
