If kickoff weekend wasnt enough, week two should be even better with some dynamite match-ups on the Schedule. Here is a look at the best Games upcoming this weekend and predictions for those match-ups.
No. 1 Ohio State at No. 2 Texas (-2.5)
Its the top two teams in the country colliding in the second week on ABC primetime. Troy Smith and Ted Ginn Jr. looked amazing in the first half against Northern Illinois, while freshman Colt McCoy did well to make Longhorn fans forget about Vince Young. While the Ohio State defense may not be as talented as the Texas unit, they have adequate athletes to make plays. Payback will be on the minds of the Buckeyes when they come to Austin for one of the best Games of the season.
Prediction: Ohio State 27, Texas 17
No. 19 Penn State at No. 4 Notre Dame (-8)
The Irish will look to rebound and have a much better Game against JoPa and the Nittany Lions at home this Saturday. Brady Quinn wasnt overwhelming in Game one, however he never made mistakes to cost his team the Game. Look for the Irish to make a statement and prove they are indeed as highly touted as the ranking that appears before its name.
Prediction: Notre Dame 24, Penn State 13
No. 21 Oregon at Fresno State
Fresno State kicked off the college football season on Thursday with an impressive victory over last years co-WAC champ Nevada. Oregon crushed Stanford at home this past Saturday. Expect a good attacking style Game in which both teams Scoremore then not. While the Fresno State home field advantage does play into the equation, Oregon is too talented to slip up here on the road.
Prediction: Oregon 34 (-5.5), Fresno State 26
