College Football Viewing Guide/Openthread: Week Two

New, comments

Oregon/Michigan State will be one hell of a matchup. The rest of the week? Well, can I interest you in Army/UConn or Wyoming/Eastern Michigan?

Joshua Lindsey-USA TODAY Sports

Vanderbilt will host #9 Georgia this weekend, but that's only an island of interest amidst a sea of blowouts. Week two's games are so lopsided that the Bulldogs' 21-point spread over the 'Dores looks tiny in comparison to matchups like Jacksonville State/Auburn, Appalachian State/Clemson, and TCU/Stephen F. Austin. There are a few gems in that mountain of non-conference detritus, but this isn't a weekend where you'll need three or four televisions to maximize your football pleasure.

Best Game: Buffalo at Penn State. James Franklin vs. the man with the highest winning percentage in Division III history? I know Lady Schadenfreude blessed us with a Nittany Lion loss last week, but if Vanderbilt winds up getting stomped by UGA then the least she can do is help guide Buffalo to the light on Saturday. Honorable mention goes to Oregon/Michigan State, which is probably what non-spiteful Vandy fans will be watching.

Worst Game: Eeesh. Take your pick. Only three games feature matchups between two top-25 programs this week, so we're left with classic showdowns like Army/UConn, Indiana State/Purdue, Presbyterian/Charlotte, Monmouth/Central Michigan, Florida International/Indiana, Eastern Michigan/Wyoming, and Oregon State/Michigan. It's like peeling an onion, only every layer is crumpled old newspapers.
