#2 Oregon at Virginia
I’m racking my brain to figure out what was the biggest game ever played at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville and boom it came to me, when the Wahoos defeated Florida State in 1995 to end FSU’s ACC winning streak.
Oregon rarely crosses over the big rocks (Rocky Mtn’s) much less go as far east and the Ducks are travelling. You have to go back to 1970 when Oregon played at West Point since the Ducks have travelled this far east.
Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich come away impressed with the Virginia Defense.
They dominated BYU [defensively], which doesn’t happen very much.” Helfrich said in his weekly teleconference.
That may be the case last week but Virginia defensive coordinator Jon Tenuta loves a challenge and this is a biggie.
“…obviously this is one of the best college football teams in the country, and we happen to have the chance to play them here in Charlottesville.”
Yes Virginia you do but Oregon will be way too much to handle.
Oregon 42, Virginia 17
San Diego State at #3 Ohio State
The Aztecs were defeated by Eastern Illinois last Saturday. What kind of chance do they have against the Buckeyes.
The Ohio State University 48, SDSU 3
South Carolina State at #4 Clemson
Do you think the Tigers will have a let down.
“I know everybody looks at the schedule and thinks that it’s SC State versus Clemson.” Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said. “It’s an FCS team, but if you think that way then you get beat. I think there were eight FCS teams that beat FBS opponents last Saturday.”
Clemson fans, don’t worry.
Clemson 58, SC State 10
San Jose State at #5 Stanford
This was a close game last year with the Cardinal winning 20-17. The Spartans defeated Sacramento State 24-0 for a confidence boost before heading the The Farm.
Saturday is Stanford’s season opener.
“That’s [San Jose State] a good team,” Stanford head coach David Shaw said.
The Spartans have won eight straight, that streak ends.
Stanford 34, San Jose State 24
Sam Houston State at Texas A&M
Raise your hand if you are over Johnny Manziel………. That’s what I thought.
College Football’s spoiled brat will play again at Kyle Field to dismantle the Sam Houston defense.
“They are a tremendously talented team led by a Heisman Trophy winner.” Sam Houston State head coach Willie Fritz said. “But playing in front of a crowd of more than 88,000 again will be a great experience for our players and good exposure for Sam Houston State.”
Enjoy the experience Bearkats
Texas A&M 49, Sam Houston State 10
More to come, stay tuned.
