Things got off to a quick start last week, as one would expect with multiple matchups between Top 15 teams. We also saw some teams being bandied about as potential playoff contenders lose outright and find themselves on the receiving end of late game scares. Ultimately, it was as enjoyable an opening weekend of college football as I can remember in quite some time.
Week 2 doesn’t look quite as loaded at the top end of the rankings — several of the teams (including Georgia) who participated in the big name contests last week are having their delicious cupcake dessert. But there are several newly-minted ranked teams that will be testing their consistency against other mid-Top 25 squads. And, to top it all off, Texas is hosting Alabama... which means, perhaps earlier than ever, we get to find out if the Longhorns are “BACK!” (Spoiler Alert: They are not.)
It should be a great one. So let’s get started!

And now for my viewing suggestions for each time slot:
The Cardinals are coming of an absolute beating at the hands of Syracuse, while the Knights gave out a beating to their own against what passes for a cupcake when you’re UCF (South Carolina State). I don’t see this one playing out well for Louisville, but you just never know when the GusBus is gonna veer off the road and into a ditch... which is why I’ll be watching.
In the history of college football, I doubt there has ever been a collection of fans who think more highly of themselves than the one that will converge on the University of Texas campus Saturday morning. One set, perhaps justifiably... the other doesn’t seem to require justification. Anyway, I’d be very surprised if the Crimson Tide doesn’t grind the Longhorns into the ground.
Obviously, most of us here at Dawg Sports will be tuning in to Georgia’s game against Samford. However, when that one gets out of hand or you just need a slight palette cleanser, may I suggest Tennessee/Pitt. There is the potential for all kinds of shenanigans. And given the location of the H.J. Heinz Company, Tennessee fans will find themselves right at home with the preponderance of condiment bottles should the need arise.
Well this game certainly got a lot more interesting didn’t it? I’m not ready to declare Florida ready for primetime based on a win over Utah, but they definitely seem more ready for Kentucky. Should be a good evening conference matchup.
Ahh, the elusive late night game between two Top 25 squads. TIme to stay up until 2 am finding out if either of them can actually earn that ranking. WOOHOO!
That’s all for now, folks. I hope you enjoy your mixture of delicious cupcakes and early season conference matchups.
