The Big 12 was the only college football conference to go undefeated in Week 1. The conference was headlined by a big win from Oklahoma over Houston, while both Kansas and Kansas State picked up wins over FCS schools. Peter is off to an 11-0 start thanks to late-game heroics by Auburn over Oregon. Week 2 should be even more exciting than Week 1 with some marquee games in conference and out.
Bowling Green at Kansas State
Gallagher- Kansas State looked solid in Week 1, albeit against an inferior opponent. The Wildcats are playing an inferior opponent again in Week 2, so let’s see how the Wildcats do in a tune-up game before Mississippi State next week. 38-17 Kansas St.
Peter- Kansas State is 91.8 favorite against Bowling Green. There won't be any upset at Manhattan this Saturday. 34-7 Kansas St.
West Virginia at Missouri
Gallagher- Both these teams struggled last week. West Virginia survived James Madison by a touchdown at home while Missouri went on the road and lost to Wyoming in Kelly Bryant’s debut. Expect an ugly, yet entertaining, game. I’ll side with Missouri in a close one. Random but true: this road game for West Virginia is closer than any road conference game for the Mountaineers in the Big 12. 27-24 Missouri
Peter- Losing to Wyoming was a surprise to all of us. I can't see Mizzou blowing another one against the Mountaineers, a team that barely beat James Madison. Expect the Tigers to bounce back and expect Kelly Bryant to have a big game. 41-24 Missouri
UTSA at Baylor
Gallagher- Baylor dominated Stephen F. Austin last week and should do the same against UTSA. 56-17 Baylor
Peter- This game has upset written all over it. UTSA beat Baylor before during the 2017 season, and only loss 37-20 last season. I would not take this game too lightly. 24-13 Baylor
South Dakota at No. 4 Oklahoma
Gallagher- The Oklahoma offense didn’t miss a beat with Jalen Hurts at quarterback, but the Houston defense was one of the worst defenses in the country last year. Still, I think it’s safe to say the Sooners will be fine. The defense had its moments, and it will be the real indicator of how far Oklahoma can go this year. 45-10 OU
Peter- Jalen Hurts added himself in the Heisman talk after last week's win over Houston. The momentum will continue as the Sooners will take care of business against South Dakota. 52-0 Oklahoma.
McNeese at Oklahoma State
Gallagher- Watching Spencer Sanders, Tylan Wallace, and Chuba Hubbard explode last week has me very excited for Oklahoma State this year. Like Houston, Oregon State had an awful defense last year, so we’ll see how good Oklahoma State really is. Unfortunately, we won’t find out this week. 49-17 Oklahoma St.
Peter- I'm not going to lie, Ok. St. looked fun to watch. I can see why Spencer Sanders won the starting job, and Tylan Wallace is the real deal. But I'm not going to drink the orange and black kool-aid yet. I'm will hold my horses until they face Texas two weeks from now. 49-12 Oklahoma St.
Coastal Carolina at Kansas
Gallagher- Kansas gets its star running back this week. The Jayhawks are still not in any position to overlook any opponent. They would be wise to give Coastal Carolina their full attention, or risk an upset. 27-17 Kansas
Peter- The last time KU went 2-0 was in 2011. I was still in high school, Barack Obama was still president and Turner Gill was the head coach for the Jayhawks. So beating Coastal Carolina and starting the season 2-0 could be a one-step in the right direction for Les Miles. Right? Pookah Williams is back so I guess KU's offense will be a lot better than they were last week. 30-17 Kansas
No. 6 LSU at No. 10 Texas
Gallagher- This is exactly the kind of game that Texas gets motivated for. The Longhorns have as much talent as anyone in the nation, including LSU, and when Texas is in a big-time spotlight they tend to reach their potential. I think Texas can win this game, but the Longhorns are seriously beat up at the running back position. Sam Ehlinger does most of the running for this team anyway, but I think the LSU defense can take away Ehlinger and make other players on the Texas offense step up. I like the Tigers to escape with a victory. 27-24 LSU OT
Peter- This game is a resume builder for either teams. Texas have the quarterback in Sam Ehlinger, but LSU have the defense. This is another coin flip, but for the sake of argument, I think Ehlinger is going make his mark and not get overshadowed by Jalen Hurts. 37-35 Texas
UTEP at Texas Tech
Gallagher- Texas Tech whooped up on Montana State last week and I expect something similar this week against UTEP. I’m still not sure how good Tech is. 41-17 Texas Tech
Peter- Texas Tech will take care of business against UTEP. After that, the real season begins for the Red Raiders when they travel to Arizona, then have their conference opener at Oklahoma the week after. Enjoy the wins for now Red Raider fans. 34-3 Texas Tech
No. 12 Texas A&M at No. 1 Clemson
Gallagher- Despite 13 unanswered points from the Aggies last year at College Station, Clemson survived a thriller on its way to the national title. I think we’re in for another close game with a similar result. 34-27 Clemson
Peter- Texas A&M is legit and Kellen Mond is a low-key pretty good at quarterback. Unfortunately, Clemson is too much to handle. The Aggies could keep Trevor Lawrence on his toes, but Travis Etienne could be a major problem. Too much talent all around for the Tigers, and they are 87.5 favorite. 41-20 Clemson
