Week 2 Preview

What does week two have in store for us? This might be the worst weekend for matchups all season. The SEC offers Ole Miss @ Vandy and South Carolina VS East Carolina. How will the Commodores and Gamecocks rebound. This will give us some insight as to how good East Carolina really is. The entire American conference has a chance to pull off upsets. The only Big game in the Big 12 is BYU and Texas the rest are all against lesser competition. The Big 10 needs 2 out of 3 in the Oregon, Notre Dame and Virginia Tech games. They also must stop the bleeding against the Mac with 4 games. The MAC has been going toe to toe with the Big 10 far too long. A sweep would be great anything less then 3 wins would be a disaster. The PAC 12 offers up the Oregon VS Michigan State and a conference game involving USC and Stanford. This is an opportunity for the Trojans to reinsert themselves into the conference picture. The ACC also gives us North Carolina VS San Diego State a game that will be better than most believe.

Biggest Games:

Ohio State VS Virginia Tech: Ohio State in a very close game with no Miller the Tech defense is problematic it will be close

Michigan State @ Oregon: Oregon wins just too much home field and too much speed

Texas VS BYU:BYU I would put this in the upsets but I don't think it truly is

East Carolina VS South Carolina: South Carolina it becomes a huge game if ECU could get the win

Michigan VS Notre Dame: Notre Dame in a game featuring a pair of over rated teams

Upset Alert:

Northern Illinois VS Northwestern: Northern Illinois, this almost feels like cheating and I'm not sure it's a real upset outside of conference affiliations

Texas Tech VS UTEP: UTEP, just not that impressed with the RED Raiders

Nevada VS Washington State: Nevada, good Mountain West team against a bad PAC 12 team
