Saturday - Florida at Texas A&M (ESPN, 3:30 p.m. ET)
Matchup Skinny
Florida at Texas A&M
As the old cliché goes, be careful what you wish for…. because it just might come true. This is what Aggie fans wanted, to be out of the shadow of their former archrival the University of Texas, and to be part of the almighty SEC. This Saturday Texas A&M hosts Florida from Kyle Field for its first-ever SEC game. Due to Hurricane Isaac this will also be the Aggies first game of the year after their season opener against Louisiana Tech was postponed until Oct. 13. This will also mark the first game for A&M under new head coach Kevin Sumlin. Despite the enormous amount of pressure that the team and the fans have on themselves to begin the new era of SEC football, A&M does have the benefit of playing at home where they boast one of the loudest stadiums in the country. The fact that Florida has already played a game this year (albeit rather poorly) against Bowling Green should be in Florida's favor. However it may have brought about more questions than answers for the Gators, who once again proved that if you have two quarterbacks, you really have none. With the Kyle Field advantage has the Aggies opening as a field goal favorite.
Saturday - Washington at LSU (ESPN, 7:00 p.m. ET)
Matchup Skinny
Washington at LSU
These two teams last met in 2009 in Washington and LSU managed a 31-23 win that really wasn't that close. This year they meet in Death Valley and that simply doesn't bode well for Washington. LSU is riding a nation-leading 18 game home winning streak and has won 43 of its 49 home games under The Mad Hatter (Les Miles). If that's not enough to get your attention, LSU is a mere 22-0 against non-conference teams in Death Valley under Miles. Basically, they are really good at home. Throw in the fact that Washington is 1-10 in nonconference games away from Husky Stadium since 2001, which tells you that 23-point line seems about right or maybe a tad too low. If you are a Washington fan you can hang your hat on the fact that Washington's QB Keith Price is one of the more under the radar players in college football and the LSU secondary is without Tyrann Mathieu and a handful of other DB;s from last year's stellar squad. Personally, I wouldn't hang a very valuable hat on that but I'm just trying to give you something to look forward to. Let's just say if he ends the night with half of the 400 passing yards and seven touchdowns he put up against Baylor last year in the Alamo Bowl you should feel good about his night. Basically, this game is a great excuse for Washington fans to spend a few days in New Orleans on their way into Baton Rouge. But not even three days on Bourbon Street will help them erase the possible pounding their team is going to get Saturday night in Death Valley.
Saturday - Georgia at Missouri (ESPN2, 7:45 p.m. ET)
Matchup Skinny
Georgia at Missouri
The other team making their SEC debut this weekend under a little softer spotlight is the Missouri Tigers, who will be playing the University of Georgia. Missouri also has the benefit of making its SEC debut at home; however they have a far less home field advantage than its SEC newlywed and it plays a team many have picked to win the SEC East this year. The Dawgs come in on the heels of a less than impressive win over the lowly Buffalo Bulls. Georgia was a 37½-point favorite but only led 24-16 at halftime before pulling away to a 45-23 victory. The bright spot for UGA in week one was Todd Gurley, the freshman playing in his first college game, ran for 100 yards and returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown as well. Mizzou opened the season with a 62-10 victory as it scored early and often against the Southland Conference powerhouse Southeastern Louisiana with punt returns of 72 and 70 yards and a 76-yard TD run. Mizzou led 28-0 after running just 12 plays. Missouri will quickly be reminded that the Southland Conference and the Southeastern Conference show up with two very different caliber players. Despite being rankeds sixth nationally and favored in the division, the Bulldogs are only a field goal favorite against Missouri this weekend.
Other Games to Watch
Matchup Skinny
Miami, (Fl.) at Kansas State
These two teams met in a thriller last year in South Beach where Kansas State won 28-24 when they stopped Miami quarterback Jacory Harris on a fourth-down run at the goal line with 49 seconds left. Miami will be looking for revenge this year in Manhattan, so the question becomes which Wildcats team will Miami face? The one that only lead Missouri State 16-9 at the end of the third quarter or the one that scored five touchdowns against Missouri State in the fourth quarter to beat Missouri St 51-9 in Week 1? Kansas St. will need to be much more consistent in week two if they are going to cover the touchdown spread against a Hurricanes team out for redemption under second-year head coach Al Golden. Miami looked sharp on the road last week, earning a 41-32 win over Boston College behind true-freshman running back Randy "Duke" Johnson.
Nebraska at UCLA
The highly scrutinized Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez threw for five touchdowns and 354 yards in the team's 49-20 Week 1 win against a Southern Mississippi defense that most people would say is at least respectable. So the real question is - "Can he repeat those numbers this week against UCLA?" Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Making it even more impressive was that Martinez did it without Rex Burkhead, the Huskers' All-Big Ten running back, who left Saturday's game in the first quarter because of a low-grade sprain to the medial collateral ligament in his left knee. The Huskers head west to face a UCLA team Saturday that has a new head coach in Jim Mora. UCLA did win their opener 49-24 allowing 358 yards and three touchdowns, against Rice. The key words in the previous sentence were "against Rice." Back to the real questions in Week 2 - "Can Martinez repeat his week one performance against an even lesser defense and can UCLA repeat its Week 1 offensive output against a far more superior defense?"
