Duke at NW might be interesting? I don't see a great slate for B1G in week 2

IA St v IA probably the most interesting, we'll see if Offense can outscore defense/ST

Tenn at Pitt -- should be interesting to see if Narduzzi's defense can stop Heupel's offense
Washington State at Wisconsin -- hopefully badgers can lose
Iowa State at Iowa -- hogs are able to keep the cyclones snakebitten
UVA at Illinois -- has the potential to be high scoring and interesting to me
Kentucky at Florida -- how much has Kentucky fallen off is what I want to know
Baylor at BYU -- will definitely watch this game, I think it's the best game of the weekend
Oregon State at Fresno State -- rooting for Jake Haener and Tedford to knock off a P5 team
Mississippi State at Arizona -- I expect a hard fought game by Arizona who surprised me by handling San Diego

Curious to see how Colorado tries to defend the run against Air Force. AF ran it 62 times in a blowout win against UNI.

Bolded: Florida could be much improved this year though. But on the other hand, a let down from emotional win over Utah?

Nebraska 23.5 point favorites against Georgia Southern. Anyone else think there's no way they can cover that?

They have a decent looking offense. Would imagine southern struggles to defend them to start like NW did

Ga southern has an offense as well, and Nebraska doesn't defend all that well. To cover 23.5 they realistically can't allow more than 20 points. Nebraska scored 38 vs UND but allowed 17 and didn't cover. I just don't see how Nebraska defense can do enough to beat that line.

That’s fair. Didn’t watch the neb-UND game. Would imagine it’s a spread because “it’s Nebraska”. Depends on which team shows up for them. Some games they’ve looked dominant in years past and then they shit the bed vs others. I know I wouldn’t touch them until they’re wrongly favored in their next B10 game haha

'Bama is favored by 20 over Texas, I'm going with Texas to at least make it closer than that.

The Tide will roll the Longhorns, but holy crap, the crowd down in Austin looks pretty incredible. That would be a fun game to attend.

Fox's pregame show has Reggie Bush, Vince Young, and Matt Leinart together. It's making for some good commentary.
