Week 2 Preview

  • Upset of the Week
Vanderbilt over Alabama: I don't know. I just have a funny feeling about this one. Although Bama is unranked, this would be a big upset considering the hype of Nick Saban and the history of this series.

  • Lock of the Week
Georgia over South Carolina: Georgia is back to being really tough this year. Spurrier almost pulled the upset in Athens two years ago, but the Dawgs will be ready this time.
  • Best Game on TV
Virginia Tech @ LSU: Night games in Baton Rouge are legendary, and this one will be one of their latest kickoffs ever (9:15 Eastern Time on ESPN). The visitor is a unique out-of-conference opponent who happens to come to town ranked in the Top 10.

  • Should be the Best Atmosphere
Virginia Tech @ LSU: See Above.
  • "Why is This Game on TV?"
Samford @ Georgia Tech
  • Biggest Blowout
Florida over Troy

  • Good Matchup Flying Under The Radar
South Florida @ Auburn: Nobody seems to be talking about this one, but it could be a great game. South Florida is still a program on the rise, and this is another huge opportunity for them to knock off a giant on national television.

  • Game With Best Storylines
NC State @ Boston College: It's only Tom O'Brien's second game as the wolfpack head coach, and he already returns to his former homefield to face the team that he just said goodbye to.
  • Best Rumor of the Week
Lloyd Carr out. Les Miles to Michigan. Nick Saban back to LSU. Wow...

  • Team That Needs A Win The Most
Florida State: I never thought I would feel sorry for Bobby Bowden, but it's getting difficult to watch him on the sidelines. They need to take care of business this week against UAB.
