The Top 25 College Football Games of the 2013 Opening Weekend

My pick in Bold.  

25.  Liberty @ Kent State — Looking forward to seeing Turner Gill in his second year at the helm of the Flames.  Go Flames.

24.  FL-Atlantic @ Miami, FL — Looking Forward to seeing Carl Pelini in his second year at the helm of the Owls.  Go Owls.

23.  Colorado vs Colorado State — season opening rivalries are always nice, even if both teams stink.  Go Rams.

22.  Texas Tech @ SMU

21.  Washington State @ Auburn — Battle of the Big Time Bottom Feeders, the worst of the best.

20.  Kentucky vs Western Kentucky

19.  Miami, OH @ Marshall

18.  Nevada @ UCLA

17.  BYU @ Virginia

16.  Wyoming @ Nebraska — Not that compelling of a game but, its MY Huskers!!

15.  Florida State @ Pittsburgh — Monday Night Football and Welcome to the ACC!!

14.  Ole Miss @ Vanderbilt —  This is a game that could mean bowl eligibility for either one of these teams. 

13.  Utah State @ Utah

12.  N. Carolina @ S. Carolina — The FIRST game of the season.

11. Rutgers @ Fresno State — a pair of 9-4 teams from a year ago both hoping to improve.

10.  N. Illinois @ Iowa — The Huskies were a single point from a 13-0 season.

9.  Ohio @ Louisville — Louisville should be a big favorite, but then again, so was Penn State last year.  Go Bobcats.

8.  Northwestern @ California — The B1G did not fare well against the PAC12 last year.  A B1Ger story line starts here.

7.  Mississippi State vs Oklahoma State — I don’t think it will be that close.

6.  LSU vs TCU — TCU has gotten some preseason hype and sported the Big XII’s best defense last year.  But I think they are pretenders.  Not a lot of scoring here though.

5.  Purdue @ Cincinnati

4.  Alabama vs Virginia Tech

3.  Penn State vs Syracuse

2.  Boise State @ Washington

1.  Georgia @ Clemson — Aaron Murray.  Tahj Boyd. Nuff Said.  Go Dawgs!!
