College Football Mid-Season Awards

thThe 2013 college football season is halfway over, and the good, the bad, and the wacky have already been displayed despite being only halfway through the season.

This has been a very up-and-down season for some teams. While for some teams, it has been smooth sailing, like for Alabama, Oregon, and Florida State.

Then, there are the teams who have not done one thing this season and have been very disappointing. Teams like Southern Miss, Kansas, Iowa State, Kentucky, and Arkansas have had rough seasons, with a combined record of 7-29.

Alabama is still the team to beat, if they can finish the season undefeated, but they still have tough games against ranked LSU and Auburn. The only competition left for Oregon is Stanford and the Civil War against Oregon State.

The SPS student community is beginning to weigh in on their predictions for how the season will pan out.

“Alabama is going to win the championship because no team has both a great offense and a great defense,” predicts SPS sophomore Oliver Guice.

Some of the remaining questions in the second half of the season are: Can the SEC continue their dominance of college football? Who will win the coveted Heisman Trophy? Can a one-loss team go to the national title game?

This second half of the season should be fun to watch, with teams really trying to prove to themselves that they belong in the championship race.
