I've noticed that with my 7D2 as well. You are using the same lens as I am for football; but looks like your games are better lit, possibly daytime hours mostly. How are typically white balancing? I was looking through your gallery pix. Nice work Man! I just moved to the 7D2 from a 1D3 White balance has seemed a little trickier with the 7D2 for some reason.
They installed new lights this year at McNeese's Cowboy Stadium so the lighting is a little better this year when it gets dark. Some of the shots at the home games are before dark. Won't be that way this coming Saturday with daylight savings time gone. It will be dark from the beginning and it maybe a little wet unless they miss the forecast.
When shooting outdoors when the light will be changing (daylight to dusk to artificial lighting) I just shoot with AWB. I'm shooting RAW, so I adjust the white balance to my liking in Lightroom. At McNeese's basketball game with the new LED lighting they installed before last season and with the lighting constant, I shoot (if I remember right) 4500K.
