For pure entertainment value try and check out the Holy War (Utah at BYU). These two teams really dislike each other. 

 

Boise State is going to have more than it can handle at Wazzu. Defense is young (and they look really good) but just not experienced enough to handle Falk throwing all over the place. And our offense is a mess or at least it was on Saturday, albeit Troy is a stout defensive club.

Nighttime is where it's at this week-Oklahoma @ Ohio State and Stanford @ USC are both games with major playoff implications.  Nebraska @ Oregon could be a shootout-the Ducks dropped 77 on Southern Utah last week and the Huskers' defense does not look up to stopping them.

Not to mention Auburn Clemson and Georgia Notre Dame.

 

Both are night games too.

 

They need to spread these games out!

Auburn and Clemson should be good, but I expect Clemson to win. Of note, Pettway will be back for Auburn after being suspended for week 1 for a team rules violation. He's a stud... Fournette'esque, so he could have a game changing impact. That said, their 1B running back, Kerryon Johnson suffered what appeared to be a bad Hamstring injury Saturday, so I doubt he will be out there. Makes it easier for Clemson to game plan... and the passing game looks like complete shit for Auburn.

ESPN: Oregon schools monitoring air quality ahead of games

 

Don't know about Eugene or Corvallis, but it's really bad here in Portland. Schools are cancelling outdoor activities all over the area due to the smoke. The good news is a shift in the weather later in the week should improve conditions around here.

Oklahoma/OSU and USC/Stanford are major, playoff games.

Can USC finally beat Stanford in a monster game?

They have to, and they will.

I'm ready to buy in on Oklahoma St. Hoping they can convince me.

I'm not impressed with Michigan. Their offense sucks.

Still weird seeing them unranked. But they look good today.

With Willie Taggart's track record, and the way he's recruiting, they'll be back in the Top 25 soon. Nebraska isn't folding though, 42-28 now.
