Week 2: Saturday College Football Schedule and Open Thread

The Vanderbilt game isn’t until 9, so you’ve got plenty of time to watch other football and, uh, get drunk for what we’re probably about to see.

Week 2 always kind of sucks.

In recent years, it’s felt like college football shoots its wad on opening weekend, and Week 2 is what Week 1 used to be: when half of the Power 5 is playing a walkover and El Assico is the highlight. Okay, El Assico will probably be a good game this year. But uh, it’s weird that that’s perennially the highlight of the second week of the season.
