College Football Week 1 Must See Games
We are only eight days away from the start of college football. After months of recruiting, spring games, and summer practices the wait is almost over. What I love about college football is that fans get premier matchups every single week. Rivalries are what make college football great and boy do we have some awesome games already in Week 1.
Must see games for week 1 include:
No. 13 Georgia at No. 19 Oklahoma State
Oklahoma State surprised a lot of people in 2008. They have an up and coming head coach who is looking to make a name for himself and his program. Georgia lost Stafford and Moreno to the NFL, but still hope to contend for the SEC East.
Prediction: Georgia 31 – Oklahoma State 28
No. 20 Brigham Young at. No 3 Oklahoma
BYU is always one of those schools that will go undefeated or only have one loss and argue that they deserve a shot at a BCS game. Well, this is as close as they’re going to get. Oklahoma is a premier football team capabale of beating anyone.
Prediction: BYU 13 – Oklahoma 56
No. 5 Alabama vs. No. 7 Virginia Tech
This is the game I’m looking forward to the most. Two top 10 teams battling it out. A loss here will seriously hurt either team’s chance at making the BCS Championship game. Virginia Tech is the class of the ACC and Alabama wants to prove their 12-2 record last year wasn’t a fluke.
Prediction: Alabama 24 – Virginia Tech 34
Miami at No. 18 Florida State
This game might not be what it once was, but Miami vs. FSU is still one of the best rivalry games in college football. Every year they kick off the season against each other. Miami has a horrific quarterback situation and they have to travel into Doak Campbell Stadium.
Prediction: Miami 10 – FSU 24
