College Football Viewing Guide: Week 2

What’s on the schedule for week 2?

NCAA Football: Las Vegas Bowl-Brigham Young vs Utah Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

The first week of the college football season was billed as perhaps the best weekend in college football history. And week one lived up to the hype! There were dramatic finishes, historic comebacks, and some spectacular true freshman quarterback play.

The second week of college football could be the least exciting weekend in college football history though (at least on paper). There are zero match-ups of top 25 ranked teams and to top it off Oregon State has a bye! But alas not all hope is lost. For starters, College Game Day is at Bristol Motor Speedway, where #14 Tennessee is taking on Virginia Tech. ‘The Battle of Bristol’ will be held at Richmond International Raceway and is expected to draw a crowd of more than 150,000 fans, which would be a college football record.

Also, the Utah Utes of the Pac-12 South will be taking on bitter rival BYU in the ‘holy war’. Tensions are high on both sides of the rivalry and it should be an exciting, emotion-driven game. There are also plenty of highly ranked teams playing ‘cupcake’ type games, which means I’m sure there will be a shocking upset or two.
