The NFL starts up tonight with the league’s annual Thursday night kick-off game. We don’t need to wait much longer for the start of College Football Week 2, though.
Friday night only has one game, but it features a ranked team.
No. 16 TCU has a big road tune-up game ahead of next weekend’s highly anticipated match-up against Ohio State in Arlington.
The Horned Frogs travel to Dallas to face SMU, now coached by former Cal head coach Sonny Dykes. The Mustangs fell to a tough North Texas team last weekend.
From there, we have a full Saturday slate.Mississippi State-Kansas State, UCLA-Oklahoma, Colorado-Nebraska, and Michigan State-Arizona State.
There are also rivalry games between Iowa and Iowa State, Georgia and South Carolina, and a big Pac-12 battle between ranked Stanford and USC teams, among others.
After Week 1, here are The Spun’s staff pick standings.
Here are our picks for the upcoming week. We choose every game involving a Power Five/Top 25 team.
