What to watch in college football in Week Two
This week marks Week 2 of the college football season. We here at Inside Sport Center love college football. We know that you may not love it so here is a guide on what to watch this week, a primer of all the week’s best games.
USC VS Stanford 3:30 EST on ABC: Two of the Pac-12s best square off in a fun early season matchup. USC comes off an absolute demolition of Fresno last week. Stanford is coming off two consecutive seasons of demolishing all Pac-12 foes with their play on both the offensive and defensive lines. Both teams have Pac-12 title hopes and a loss here will do them no favors. Kick off your afternoon with this west coast contest.
Michigan VS Notre Dame 7:30 EST NBC: Consider this the game your grandfather will be watching. These two programs are old storied and both of their embattled coaches need a win in this game to avoid the whispers calling for their jobs. Notre Dames prodigal son; Everette Golston returned last week to account for 5 touchdowns. Michigan was even more impressive as they dropped something along the lines of 75 points and 900 yards on Apalachin St. Just remember Michigan fans, it still doesn’t erase losing to App St. 7 years ago. Check this game out to see what football was like back before helmets were a thing.
Lamar VS Texas A+M 7:30 EST SEC Network: Check this one out to see if Kenny “Trill” Hill can pass for one thousand yards in a single half. Seriously though, this will be a bloodbath much akin to watching a car crash.
East Carolina VS South Carolina 7:00 EST ESPNU: Steve Spurrier’s squad is coming off an embarrassing loss to Texas A+M last week. Now they get the ultimate trap game against a feisty East Carolina squad. Spurrier will be very salty on the back 9 at Myrtle Beach if South Carolina doesn’t take care of business against this AAC opponent.
Michigan St. VS Oregon 6:30 EST Fox: This week’s marquee game featuring two top 10 opponents from different conferences. You don’t get games like this every year, especially in a notoriously boring week 2. This game matches perhaps the nation’s finest defense in Michigan St. against arguably the most explosive offensive in Oregon. Marcus Mariotta came into the year as a front runner for both the Hesiman trophy and the first overall pick in the NFL draft. Chris Brown is much smarter than I and he does a great job of explaining what Michigan St. does on defense that makes them so successful (http://grantland.com/the-triangle/michigan-state-oregon-pat-narduzzi-defense-breakdown/). Needless to say Pat Narduzzi is a mad genius that will keep Mariotta awake at night and not the other way around. Skip spending time with the family to enjoy this top 10, offense vs defense clash.
