Preview: Georgia at Notre Dame
Gracenote
Sep 6, 2017

No. 15 Georgia certainly did not envision true freshman Jake Fromm at quarterback early in its season-opening victory last weekend, but Fromm will direct the Bulldogs into Saturday’s nonconference showdown at No. 25 Notre Dame after Jacob Eason’s left knee injury. Fromm, who came on eight minutes into a 31-10 win over Appalachian State, completed 10-of-15 passes for 143 yards and a touchdown after Eason injured his left knee and will start Saturday, coach Kirby Smart confirmed Monday.

“He has good players around him,” Smart told the media regarding Fromm, who enrolled at Georgia early and took part in spring drills. “He needs to take advantage of them.” The Fighting Irish also cruised in their season opener, downing Temple 49-16 behind a trio of 100-yard rushers: Josh Adams, Dexter Williams and quarterback Brandon Wimbush, who also passed for 184 yards. “He provided some excitement and energy for the offense,” Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly told reporters afterward. The matchup is just the second between the two schools, and the first since Georgia beat Notre Dame in the 1981 Sugar Bowl to win the national championship.

TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, NBC. LINE: Notre Dame -4

ABOUT GEORGIA (1-0): Fromm got help from the running-back duo of Nick Chubb (96 yards rushing, two touchdowns) and Sony Michel (87 yards rushing, one score). Chubb’s two rushing touchdowns moved him to sixth on the school’s all-time list with 31, while Michel recorded his 18th career rushing score. The Bulldogs defense kept Appalachian State out of the red zone until the fourth quarter, getting a sack, a forced fumble and five tackles from defensive back J.R. Reed.

ABOUT NOTRE DAME (1-0): Adams eclipsed 100 yards rushing before the end of the first quarter and finished with 161 yards on the ground, while Williams added 124 yards on just six carries. Wimbush rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown, and threw two touchdown passes while completing 17-of-30 attempts. Defensively, the Fighting Irish gave up 245 yards passing but limited Temple to 2.3 yards per rushing attempt.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Adams has rushed for 13 touchdowns in his career, six of those covering 35-plus yards.

2. Georgia P Cameron Nizialek averaged 43.8 yards per kick in his first game with the Bulldogs.

3. Wimbush is the first Notre Dame quarterback to account for three touchdowns in one game since Tommy Rees in 2010.

PREDICTION: Georgia 24, Notre Dame 21

Preview: Montana at Washington
Gracenote
Sep 6, 2017

Seventh-ranked Washington didn't deliver the sharpest opening performance but will be looking for its second straight win when it hosts FCS program Montana on Saturday. The Huskies didn't lead for the first 26 minutes in their opener against Rutgers before posting a 30-14 victory.

Washington didn't play like a team that was part of the College Football Playoff last season against the Scarlet Knights and coach Chris Petersen is well aware that improvement is needed. "We've still got a ton to clean up," Petersen said at a press conference. "We've got to start faster, we've got to tackle better, but I think it was a good start out of the gate." Senior receiver Dante Pettis took a punt 61 yards for the go-ahead score and his six career punt-return touchdowns tie the Pac-12 record set by California's DeSean Jackson (2005-07). Montana might be overmatched physically by the Huskies but was sharp while recording a 45-23 victory over Valparaiso in its opener as former Kentucky backup quarterback Reese Phillips passed for 381 yards and four touchdowns.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, Pac-12 Network. LINE: None

ABOUT MONTANA (1-0): Phillips, a fifth-year senior, was 27-of-38 passing in the first start of his college career and the Grizzlies are hoping a guy who spent time in SEC stadiums won't be in awe of the atmosphere in Seattle. Sophomore receiver Jerry Louie-McGee caught nine passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns against Valparaiso and junior Jeremy Calhoun (77 yards, two touchdowns) is the top running back. The Grizzlies allowed 450 yards in their opener but received solid play from senior linebacker James Banks (12 tackles) while junior safety Evan Epperly and sophomore safety Josh Sandry each nabbed interceptions.

ABOUT WASHINGTON (1-0): Junior quarterback Jake Browning passed for 284 yards and two touchdowns against Rutgers but his accuracy (17-of-30) was shaky and he vowed the offense will be vastly improved against the Grizzlies. All-America senior inside linebacker Azeem Victor will be back from a one-game suspension for violation of team rules to aid a defense that allowed 131 rushing yards and was kept on the field for more than 38 minutes. Redshirt freshman Byron Murphy intercepted two passes in his first college game as Washington looks for production from a revamped secondary.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Washington leads the series 16-1-1 but the most-recent meeting occurred in 1951.

2. Huskies sophomore CB Austin Joyner will sit again to complete a two-game suspension for violation of team rules.

3. Montana lost to Wyoming 17-12 in 2014 in its last game against an FBS foe, and was routed 42-16 by Tennessee in 2011 in its most-recent game against a Power 5 conference school.

PREDICTION: Washington 40, Montana 16

Preview: Texas-San Antonio at Baylor
Gracenote
Sep 6, 2017

Matt Rhule's debut as Baylor head coach didn't quite go as planned as the Bears were stunned by Liberty, 48-45. With a road game at Duke on deck followed by a difficult Big 12 opener with Oklahoma, the Bears are facing an early must-win when they host Texas-San Antonio on Saturday night.

Rhule remains optimistic despite the school's first loss to a 1-AA team since a 18-17 setback to Lamar in 1981. "As I said to them, the way my mind thinks, I put this on me," Rhule told the Waco Tribune. "I'm hoping every guy in this room says, 'Hey, what could I have done?' And if we have that approach we'll be fine. They're so young and we'll learn from this, and the sky's the limit. I think they will be good." The Bears will be facing a UTSA squad that will be playing its first game of the season after last week's game with Houston was postponed. The contest was scheduled to be played at the Alamodome in San Antonio, but Houston requested the postponement following the devastating damage of Hurricane Harvey.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, FSN. LINE: Baylor -17

ABOUT TEXAS-SAN ANTONIO (0-0): The Roadrunners return 15 starters from a team that finished second in the West Division of Conference USA, a spot they are picked to finish again in this year's league preseason media poll. Four players were picked to the preseason all-conference team by the league's coaches: DE Marcus Davenport, OL Austin Pratt, LB Josiah Tauaefa and long-snapper Matt Bayliss. Senior quarterback Dalton Sturm, who passed for 2,170 yards and 20 touchdowns and rushed for 313 yards and four more scores last season, returns to run the offense.

ABOUT BAYLOR (0-1): Anu Solomon, a graduate transfer from Arizona, won the starting quarterback job and completed 14-of-29 passes for 278 yards and three touchdowns while also rushing for a career-high 97 yards on six carries against Liberty. However, he also had one big turnover, an interception that was returned 32 yards for a touchdown to open the third quarter. A bigger issue for the Bears is an injury-plagued secondary that was picked apart by Liberty quarterback Stephen Calvert who completed 44-of-60 passes for 447 yards and three touchdowns.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Baylor sophomore RB JaMycal Hasty, who rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in the opener, will be sidelined a minimum of four weeks with a knee sprain that will not require surgery.

2. This is the first meeting between Baylor and UTSA with a rematch scheduled for 2018 at the Alamodome.

3. Baylor has won 14 of its last 18 games against in-state schools.

PREDICTION: Baylor 48, Texas-San Antonio 31

Preview: Stanford at USC
Gracenote
Sep 6, 2017

No. 5 USC has lost seven of the last nine meetings in the all-time series but will look to buck that trend when it hosts 14th-ranked Stanford in a Pac-12 matchup on Saturday. Stanford has won three in a row against USC since suffering a 13-10 loss in 2014, with all three wins coming by double digits.

The teams had vastly different experiences in their season-opening victories. The Cardinal traveled to Australia to play Rice on Aug. 26 and won so easily, the starters were able to watch the second half of the 62-7 victory from the sideline. The Trojans didn't have it so easy in their opener last Saturday, falling into 28-28 tie against visiting Western Michigan midway through the fourth quarter before escaping with a 49-31 win. USC's most glaring weakness seemed to be its tackling, and that's an area that must be improved against an even more physical Stanford team.

TV: 8:30 p.m. ET, FOX. LINE: USC -6.5

ABOUT STANFORD (1-0): The Cardinal pride themselves on their offensive balance, and running back Bryce Love looked comfortable against the Trojans last season, rushing for 51 yards on 11 carries. Love doesn't have to share the backfield this season with Christian McCaffrey, the No. 8 overall draft pick of the Carolina Panthers last spring, and should get the chance to play the entire game against USC, so expect 20-25 carries. Love also should relieve some of the pressure on senior quarterback Keller Chryst, who's 7-0 as a starter at Stanford but still green in many ways.


ABOUT USC (1-0): The Trojans will try for the same type of balance as Stanford, but quarterback Sam Darnold and running back Ronald Jones II need to avoid looking desperate for their first career win against the Cardinal. Darnold wasn't yet the starter when Stanford beat USC last season but moved into that role the following week, and the Trojans have won 10 of 11 since. Jones could be the key if the Trojans' defense can prevent another shootout, as his workload was limited in the second half against Western Michigan.

EXTRA POINTS

1. USC has won 10 straight games against FBS opponents, the nation's second-longest streak behind Oklahoma (11). Stanford is fifth on that list at seven straight wins.

2. Stanford has made 177 consecutive extra-point attempts dating to Oct. 26, 2013, the third-longest streak in the nation behind Michigan (287) and Memphis (213).

3. Stanford has gained at least 500 yards of total offense and scored at least 40 points in four of its last five games.

PREDICTION: USC 24, Stanford 21

Once a November staple with conference-title hopes usually on the line, the Utah-BYU game now is a non-league September matchup with little more at stake than Beehive State bragging rights. The latest installment of the Deseret First Duel is set for Saturday in Provo as the Cougars host the Utes.


This will be the fifth straight September game in the regular-season series – the teams also played in the 2015 Las Vegas Bowl – after a run of 92 straight October, November and December matchups that ended when Utah left the Mountain West for the Pac-12 Conference in 2011. “You just play them as they unfold as your schedule dictates so we don't have a lot of control over it right now,” Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, a BYU graduate, said at his weekly news conference Monday. “I think given the circumstances with the conference we are in, and the situation with the two schools, I think (the game) fits best right where we are at. I don't know how you could play it late in the season.” This will be second game and first road test for Whittingham’s Utes while the Cougars will be playing in their third game – and second home contest – following a 20-6 win over visiting Portland State and a 27-0 neutral-site shutout loss vs. No. 13 LSU last Saturday in New Orleans.

TV: 10:15 p.m. ET, ESPN2. LINE: BYU -1


ABOUT UTAH (1-0): Sophomore quarterback Tyler Huntley made his first career start in the Utes’ Aug. 31 opener and was intercepted on his third pass of the game but impressively righted the ship to throw for 227 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 70 yards and two more scores in a 37-16 win over North Dakota of the FCS. “What you saw after those first couple series is what he’s all about,” Whittingham told the media. “He’s going to get better and better as the season wears on and as he gets more comfortable and settled in.” Huntley also has plenty of help in running back Zack Moss (22 carries-128 yards-TD vs. North Dakota) and wide receiver/Oregon transfer Darren Carrington (10 receptions-127 yards-1 TD) and a defense which limited the Fighting Hawks to 55 yards on 28 rushing attempts.

ABOUT BYU (1-1): The Cougars enter the contest with offensive concerns after being limited to 97 total yards and six first downs by the host Tigers. Quarterback Tanner Mangum has yet to get untracked at 28-of-51 for 296 yards, one TD and one interception so far while Squally Canada and the BYU rushing attack have similarly been bottled up with 166 yards on 49 attempts in the two games. Defensively, linebacker Fred Warner has totaled 18 tackles so far for a unit which has been much stouter against the pass (159.5 yards allowed per game) than the run (190 yards) so far.


EXTRA POINTS

1. Utah has won six straight and 11 of the last 15 games in the series after thwarting a BYU two-point conversion with 18 seconds remaining in last season’s 20-19 home win.

2. The Utes are looking for their first seven-game win streak in the series since 1957.

3. BYU DB Micah Hannemann will miss the first half Saturday after getting ejected for targeting vs. LSU.


PREDICTION: Utah 24, BYU 20

Gracenote
Sep 6, 2017

After opening the season with a pair of uneven performances, Oregon State looks to put together a complete effort Saturday against visiting Minnesota. The Beavers, who were underwhelming in a blowout loss to Colorado State and a close win over FCS Portland State, need to see dramatic improvement against a Minnesota team led by energetic new coach P.J. Fleck.

Oregon State has given up 1,040 yards in the first two weeks of the season, including 515 in last Saturday’s 35-32 win over Portland State of the Big Sky Conference. The Beavers allowed 291 rushing yards against the Vikings and will be hard-pressed to slow down a Minnesota ground attack led by the duo of Rodney Smith and Shannon Brooks, who combined for 145 yards and one touchdown in last Saturday’s 17-7 triumph over Buffalo. The Beavers have committed seven turnovers in their first two games and given fans little reason to believe they can be competitive in the Pac-12 North Division. “My biggest problem right now, I would say, is there’s not one part of the run game defense that we’re playing well,” coach Gary Andersen told reporters. “We’re not tackling well. The middle of the defense is soft at times. We have to become a team that can tackle, secure the edges in the run game.”

TV: 10 p.m. ET, FS1. LINE: Oregon State -2

ABOUT MINNESOTA (1-0): Sophomore wide receiver Tyler Johnson made six catches for 141 yards against Buffalo, including a 61-yard touchdown, as Fleck became the first Golden Gophers coach to win his debut since John Gutekunst in 1986. Conor Rhoda and Demry Croft shared time at quarterback and executed a conservative gameplan in the second half, while Smith and Brooks were held to a combined 145 rushing yards and a touchdown. Fleck was most impressed by the play of Antoine Winfield Jr., who led the defense with seven tackles and one sack, broke up a long flea-flicker and blocked a field-goal attempt.

ABOUT OREGON STATE (1-1): Senior inside linebacker Manase Hungalu battled through a bruised hip and finished with a team-high nine tackles, two tackles for loss and a 21-yard TD off an interception in the win over Portland State. While Hungalu has done his part, the rest of the defense has looked awfully similar to last season’s unit, which gave up 5.3 rushing yards per carry. On offense, junior quarterback Jake Luton has thrown three touchdowns against four interceptions in his first two games while running back Ryan Nall was limited to 59 yards and a score on 16 carries against Portland State.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Smith rushed for 125 yards and two touchdowns to lead Minnesota to a 30-23 victory over the Beavers last season.

2. Oregon State is 53-17 over its last 70 games when committing fewer turnovers than its opponent.

3. Fleck held DE Tai’yon Devers out of the season opener for undisclosed reasons and said the sophomore also could miss Saturday’s game.

PREDICTION: Minnesota 27, Oregon State 24

Sep 5, 2017

Arizona will try to continue running wild when it hosts Houston on Saturday night. The Wildcats have rushed for more than 500 yards in back-to-back games, but that will be a tall task against an experienced Houston defense.

The Cougars, who did not play in Week 1 when their opener against Texas-San Antonio was postponed by Hurricane Harvey, have three of their top four tacklers returning, including AP Preseason All-American Ed Oliver. The Wildcats had six players record rushing touchdowns last week while piling up 506 yards, just shy of the school-record 511 Arizona had in last year's finale. Junior Brandon Dawkins didn't throw the ball well in the opener against Norther Arizona but is confident his offense can move the ball. "It just depends how the team plays us," Dawkins said after the opener. "We're a team that's built on having a triple-option attack: We can throw the ball, we can run the ball with our running backs or I can run the ball. So whatever a team does, we just gotta make sure we don't let them be right, and that's when our offense is most effective."

TV: 10:30 p.m., ESPNU. LINE: Houston -3.5.

ABOUT HOUSTON (2016: 9-4): First-year coach Major Applewhite won't announce a starting quarterback -- either Texas A&M transfer Kyle Allen (2,210 passing yards, 17 TDs, seven INTs in 2015) or senior Kyle Postma (29-of-46, 210 yards, two INTs in 10 games and one start last year) -- until Friday. The starter will be backed by returning starters Duke Catalon (518 rushing yards, 10 scores), Linell Bonner (98 catches for 1,118 yards, three scores) and Steven Dunbar (53 catches for 692 yards, five scores). Oliver (66 tackles, 23 tackles for loss, five sacks) is joined by leading tackler Matthew Adams (82 stops, two sacks) and Khalil Williams (69 tackles) from a squad that allowed 100.2 rushing yards last year.

ABOUT ARIZONA (1-0): Dawkins rushed for a team-high 92 yards and two scores and went 7-of-13 passing for 89 yards and a touchdown in the 62-24 opening win. Senior Nick Wilson added 87 rushing yards and a score while junior Tony Ellison caught five of Dawkins' completions for 79 yards and a score. The Wildcats forced three turnovers -- including two interceptions by Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles -- after having a minus-7 turnover margin last year, but allowed 562 yards to their FCS opponent.

EXTRA POINTS

1. The Wildcats are 12-0 at home against non-Pac-12 opponents under coach Rich Rodriguez.

2. Shun Brown's 66-yard punt return TD topped Arizona's entire 2016 season total for punt return yards (56).

3. Applewhite said between 10-15 Houston players' immediate families were directly affected by flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

PREDICTION: Houston 34, Arizona 24

Preview: Boise State at Washington State
Gracenote
Sep 6, 2017

Washington State once coveted Brett Rypien during the recruiting process but it has worked out much better that it is Luke Falk who serves as the squad's quarterback as the No. 22 Cougars entertain Boise State on Saturday. Rypien, the nephew of former Cougars' star Mark Rypien, chose Boise State and struggled in the Broncos' opener while Falk continued his assault on the school record books.

Falk opened his senior season with 311 yards passing and three touchdowns as Washington State rolled to a 31-0 victory over Montana State. The big performance gave him 92 career passing touchdowns as he surpassed Connor Halliday (90 from 2011-14) for the school mark and he needs just 101 passing yards to break the record set by Halliday (11,304) in that category. Meanwhile, Rypien had an inauspicious start to his junior campaign by going 13-of-23 for 160 yards and throwing an interception returned for a touchdown in a 24-13 win over Troy. Rypien's shaky performance saw him spelled by backup Montell Cozart -- a graduate transfer from Kansas who guided the team to both its offensive touchdowns -- but coach Bryan Harsin insists the job still solidly belongs to Rypien.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, ESPN. LINE: Washington State -10.5

ABOUT BOISE STATE (1-0): Rypien, who is from Spokane, Wash., passed for 299 yards and a touchdown in a victory over Washington State last season but also was picked off three times. Sophomore Alexander Mattison is the new starting running back and he recorded a 49-yard touchdown in the opener while accumulating 82 yards on 13 carries. The Broncos allowed just 215 yards and forced three turnovers against Troy with redshirt freshman linebacker Curtis Weaver registering two sacks in his first college game.

ABOUT WASHINGTON STATE (1-0): Falk, who completed 33-of-39 passes in the opener, riddled Boise State at will last season when he completed 55-of-71 throws for 480 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Sophomore James Williams set school marks for a running back in the opener against Montana State as he caught 13 passes for 163 yards, while senior running back Jamal Morrow provided 116 all-purpose yards to move into eighth place in school history with 3,238. Junior defensive tackle Hercules Mata'afa dominates in the trenches with 27 career tackles for loss while sophomore safety Jalen Thompson stood out in the opener with a team-best seven tackles and his first career interception.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Washington State leads the series 4-1 but the Broncos recorded a 31-28 victory in Boise last season.

2. Redshirt freshman Avery Williams returned an 81-yard punt for touchdown versus Troy, the fifth longest in Broncos' history.

3. Falk's career passing touchdowns count ranks fifth in Pac-12 history and he needs 25 to surpass record-holder Matt Barkley (116 from 2009-12) of USC.

PREDICTION: Washington State 35, Boise State 28

When: 11:00 PM ET, Saturday, September 9, 2017
Where: Sun Devil Stadium, Tempe, Arizona

Preview: San Diego State at Arizona State
Gracenote
Sep 6, 2017

Arizona State has yet to lose to San Diego State, but its perfect record likely will be put to the test when it hosts their showdown on Saturday. Arizona State is 10-0-1 all time against San Diego State, the only team it has faced at least 10 times without losing.

The Sun Devils looked vulnerable in their season opener against New Mexico State on Aug. 31, giving back most of a 24-point fourth-quarter lead before holding on to win 37-31. San Diego State is coming off an 11-3 season in which they easily beat Houston in the Las Vegas Bowl, and junior quarterback Christian Chapman is back as the starter and playing confidently. Arizona State allowed 398 passing yards and three touchdowns to New Mexico State, so its secondary is an area the Aztecs might look to exploit early. Kalen Ballage appears to have solidified himself as the No. 1 running back for the Sun Devils as he produced 79 yards on 18 rushes in the season opener while former 1,000-yard rusher Demario Richard was limited to just one carry.

TV: 11 p.m. ET, Pac-12 Network. LINE: Arizona State -3.5

ABOUT SAN DIEGO STATE (1-0): Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 2,133 yards and scored 17 touchdowns for the Aztecs last season, but he's now a rookie for the Philadelphia Eagles, opening the door for Rashaad Penny to show what he can contribute on a full-time basis. Penny still had 1,005 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns last season, but expect more of what he displayed in the season opener against UC Davis, when he totaled 197 yards on 21 carries and scored two touchdowns. Penny, at 5-11, 220 pounds, is a much different runner than the 5-9, 175-pound Pumphrey, but still possesses breakaway speed.

ABOUT ARIZONA STATE (1-0): The Aztecs will need to find an answer for Manny Wilkins, who completed 22-of-27 passes for 300 yards and two touchdowns against New Mexico State to become the first Arizona State quarterback to complete at least 80 percent of his passes in a season opener. Wilkins has thrown for 300 yards or more in three of his last four games dating to last year, and his confidence level will be key in this matchup. John Humphrey caught seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in his Arizona State debut and might be the fastest receiver San Diego State will face this season.

EXTRA POINTS

1. The Sun Devils have scored 70.8 percent of the time following a turnover since 2012, with 54.6 percent of the scores being touchdowns.

2. Humphrey's 123 receiving yards were the second-most by an Arizona State player in his debut behind the 201 recorded by Calvin Demery in 1969.

3. San Diego State is 22-3 in its last 25 games, and its .880 winning percentage since Oct. 3, 2015 is third-best in the FBS behind Alabama (.962) and Clemson (.929).

PREDICTION: San Diego State 31, Arizona State 30

Louisville/North Carolina are meeting for first time as ACC rivals; Cardinals won three of last four meetings (last one was in ’12). Louisville outgained Purdue 524-344 LW but struggled to a 35-28 (-26) win in Hoosier Dome. Cardinals are 10-7 vs spread on road under Petrino, 7-5 as a road favorite; they’ve got a great QB (Jackson) but only three other returning starters on offense. North Carolina lost 35-30 (-12.5) at home to Cal last week; Tar Heels allowed 363 passing yards. UNC is 19-12 vs spread at home under Fedora.

Iowa won three of last four games with Iowa State, winning 31-17/27-21 in last two visits to Ames. Iowa averaged 34.5 pts/game in their last four games at ISU.

Since ’15, Pitt is 6-3 vs spread as a road underdog; they’re 3-12 vs spread in last 15 non-league games. ACC teams won 8 of last 10 games vs Big 14 foes (6-4 vs spread). Both teams have experienced offensive lines.

Arkansas (+7.5) won 41-38 at TCU LY, teams’ first meeting in 20+ years. Frogs outgained the Hogs 572-403 but were -2 in turnovers in game Arkansas led 13-0 at the half. Since 2014, TCU is 7-5 vs spread in non-league games; since 2011, they’re 5-13 as a road favorite. 9 of Horned Frogs’ top 10 OL guys are back from LY. Arkansas is 6-8 vs spread in last 14 home games; they’re 6-6 as a home dog under Bielema. Razorbacks have 70 starts back on OL. both teams have senior QB’s.

Teams split last four meetings. Both teams have 10 returning starters on offense.

Clemson (-9) held off Auburn 19-13 LY, outgaining War Eagles 399-262, holding Auburn to 87 rushing yards. Since 2014, Auburn is 4-8 vs spread on road; Baylor transfer Stidham gets his first big test as Auburn’s QB- his OL has 106 returning starts. Clemson has a new QB; they thrashed Kent State LW, but Kent threw only 5 passes the whole game, so Clemson’s pass defense is an unknown. Since 2013, Clemson is 15-12-1 vs spread at home. Since 2015, ACC teams are 15-11 vs spread won facing an SEC opponent.

Georgia’s starting QB Eason sprained his knee last week; true freshman Fromm gets his first college start here— he was 10-15/143 against Appalachian State LW.

Indiana threw for 420 yards LW; can Mayfield pull the road upset?

Memphis/Central Florida both have offensive lines with 100+ returning starts; Tigers won opener 37-29 in quagmire LW, so stats are misleading. Memphis is 5-2-1 in last eight games as a road underdog. Since 2010, Knights are 24-14 vs spread as a home favorite; they passed for 439 yards LW in easy win over FIU. UCF won its last nine games with Memphis, but covered only one of last four; teams haven’t met since 2013— Memphis has gotten good since then, but they’re still 0-4 in last four trips to UCF (0-4 vs spread).

Stanford won its last three games with USC, by 19-10-17 points; underdogs are 6-3 vs spread in last nine series games. Cardinal won four of last five games in the Coliseum.

This is intense rivalry that had a 2-year gap in it- this is Utes’ first visit to BYU since 2013- underdogs covered six of last seven series games. BYU is 6-2-1 vs spread in last nine games as an underdog.
Boise State (-11) beat Washington State 31-28 LY, despite Coogs passing for 480 yards; Boise is 11-6 vs spread on road under Harsin- they’re 9-6 vs spread in last 15 non-league games. Wazzu is 8-5 vs spread in its last 13 home games; they’ve got 16 starters back and Falk is a really good senior QB (29 starts). Boise State (-11) got past Troy State 24-13 LW; Coogs drilled an inferior I-AA opponent. Last 2+ years, Pac-12 schools are 15-9-1 vs spread when playing a Mountain West opponent.

NCAAF's Biggest Betting Mismatches: Week 2

Auburn Tigers at Clemson Tigers (-5.5, 53.5)
Jarrett Stidham's turnover troubles vs. Clemson's vaunted pass rush

One of this week's marquee matchups is an all-tabby affair, with Auburn and Clemson both coming off eerily similar victories in their respective openers. Auburn steamrolled Georgia Southern 41-7, limiting the overmatched Eagles to just 78 total yards - including a scant eight passing yards. Clemson was even more impressive in its opener, holding Kent State to one yard through the air en route to a 56-3 drubbing of the visiting Golden Flashes.

If there's one thing Auburn will need to improve heading into this week's difficult test, it's their turnover game. The Tigers coughed the ball up three times in their season-opening victory; quarterback Jarrett Stidham was the biggest culprit, throwing an interception and losing one of his two fumbles. It may have just been a combination of rust and jitters for Stidham, who was playing his first collegiate game since 2015 - but two turnovers against a weak opponent is still cause for concern.

Auburn, which turned the ball over three times as a team and fumbled four times overall, will need to be much more careful against a Clemson defensive unit that has been one of the best in the nation at pressuring the quarterback in recent years. The Tigers ranked 12th in Division I in sack percentage a season ago, and second overall in 2015. Experts believe this roster might be even better - which could mean very bad things for Stidham and the rest of the Clemson offense.

Oklahoma Sooners at Ohio State Buckeyes (-7.5, 64.5)
Sooners' surgical passing vs. Buckeyes' shaky first-half D

Expect plenty of offensive fireworks in this one as the Sooners and Buckeyes do battle at Ohio Stadium on Saturday night. As expected, both teams are coming off one-sided victories in their respective curtain raisers, with Oklahoma crushing Texas-El Paso 56-7 and Ohio State cruising to a 49-21 triumph over Indiana. But the Buckeyes had a little more work to do in their opener, and that could foretell some problems against a truly dominant Oklahoma passing game.

Sure, it was a home game against a lowly Conference USA opponent, but completing 32 of 36 passes is an impressive achievement no matter the opponent. Sooners starter and Heisman Trophy candidate Baker Mayfield was truly surgical in the opener, misfiring on just one of his 20 pass attempts while finishing with 329 yards and three touchdowns. Backups Kyler Murray (10-for-11) and Tanner Schafer (3-for-5) were also impressive as Oklahoma did whatever it wanted on the offensive end.

Contrast that with a rough first half for Ohio State, which actually trailed 14-13 at the half before putting its foot on the gas over the final 30 minutes. A Buckeyes pass defense that allowed the third-lowest opponent quarterback rating in the nation a year ago looked flat-footed against Indiana, allowing the Hoosiers to rack up 420 yards through the air (albeit on 68 pass attempts) and seven pass plays of 16+ yards in the first half alone. A much better effort will be required Saturday against a red-hot Mayfield.

Georgia Bulldogs at Notre Dame Fighting Irish (-4.5, 55.5)
Georgia's rush D woes vs. Notre Dame's pounding ground attack

There are major concerns in Athens after starting quarterback Nick Eason suffered a sprained knee ligament in the Bulldogs' season-opening triumph over Appalachian State. Jake Fromm will make his first career start against Notre Dame this weekend after asserting himself well in relief last week. But there are bigger concerns with the Bulldogs - primarily, how are they going to slow down a Fighting Irish run game that dominated last week against Temple?

Last week's out come was never in doubt, as the Bulldogs scored the first 31 points of the game and then coasted to the finish. But permitting 4.3 yards per carry on 32 attempts against Appalachian State is a troubling development - and one that has carried over from last season, with Georgia allowing an average of 225.7 rushing yards over its final three games of 2016. With the Bulldogs now facing the toughest schedule in the nation based on the Football Power Index, that run defense had better improve in a hurry.

The Fighting Irish will be more than happy to provide a stiff test in that department. Notre Dame ran roughshod over the Owls last week, racking up 422 rushing yards on 44 attempts for an absurd 9.6 YPC average. Three players finished with more than 100 yards on the ground; it's believed to be the first time in school history that has happened. The Irish were a below-average rushing team in 2016, but did finish the season averaging better than 200 yards on the ground over their final three games.

Stanford Cardinal at USC Trojans (-6.5, 56)
Bryce Love's Heisman skill set vs. USC's ineffective 2-4-5

The big matchup out West this weekend pits the Trojans against the Cardinal in their annual early-season tilt. Both teams prevailed to open the year, with Stanford laying a 62-7 beating on Rice and USC using a big fourth quarter to subdue Western Michigan 49-31. The Cardinal rocked the Trojans for more than 300 yards on the ground in their 27-10 victory last season - and if last week is any indication, USC might find itself on the wrong end of another virtuoso rushing performance.

With Christian McCaffrey now property of the NFL's Carolina Panthers, there were questions about how Bryce Love would fare as the Cardinal's new full-time lead back. Those questions were effectively answered last week, as Love rumbled for 180 yards and a touchdown on just 13 carries in the one-sided win over Rice. Love came into the year averaging better than seven yards per carry on 141 collegiate attempts, so it wasn't like he was a great unknown.

Love and the Cardinal should have a decided advantage on the ground against a Trojans defense that was gashed for 263 rushing yards by a plucky Western Michigan side. USC rolled with a 2-4-5 defensive alignment, and that gave the Broncos plenty of room to roam; LeVante Bellamy gained 102 yards on just nine attempts, while Jamauri Bogan added 77 yards and a score. If USC doesn't close those gaps, Love is going to pad his Heisman resume in a major way Saturday night.

BOISE STATE at WASHINGTON STATE...Harsin only 1-1 in rare dog role since 2014, though he is 11-6 vs. spread as visitor that span. Visiting team is 19-6 vs. spread in last 25 Boise non-bowl games. Leach only 6-7 vs. line LY though Cougs 11-7 as Pullman chalk since 2013.
Slight to Boise State, based on team trends.
