HOUSTON (CBS-Houston) – The College Football season is underway after training camps began earlier this week. It’s an exciting time for programs everywhere as most will look to vie, at least those teams within five AQ conferences, for the first four-team playoff en route to the National Championship.
College Football Today takes a brief look around the nation in preparation for what stands to be an exciting season. Will Jameis Winston repeat as the Heisman winner or will UCLA’s Brett Hundley walk away with College Football’s highest individual award. There’s also Oregon’s Marcus Mariotta who will contend for that award. Hence, we discuss the conference that we believe has the best stable of quarterbacks this season.
The SEC stands to remain as the best conference in the nation. However, the Big XII, PAC XII, and Big 10 might have something to say about that.
Meanwhile, locally, the Rice Owls are reigning Conference USA Champs and the target is squarely on their back. The Owls will start a new quarterback in Driphus Jackson who has proven that he has the talent to win. College Football Today talked with David Bailiff, who, after becoming the Head Coach in 2007, has taken the Owls to three bowl games and a conference championship. The Head Coach gives us an idea of what he believes is next for his championship team.
