College football Week 2 Why you should tune in thi

  • With an insane Week 1 of college football in the books, Week 2 will set the pace for several teams and players which floundered and flopped in their season openers.Even though there are no games between ranked opponents, that doesn’t mean Saturday should be dismi sed this week will be a great setupfor the rest of September and how certain teams and players stack up for the season.MORE: | Here are five story lines to watch for Week 2:1. Football in Bristol Yep, as weird as it sounds, No. 17 Tenne see will take on Virginia Tech atBristol Motor Speedway on Saturday. There are so many questions to how this will work, like how will the sidelines be drawn up? What will the turf look like? How will the fans be accommodated? Strange accommodations aside,Tenne see has much more to worry about. The Vols lost their top-10 status after they nearly flubbed what was supposed to be an easy win over Appalachian State last week. While Virginia Tech is no Alabama, it has shown strength with new coachJustin Fuente. If the Vols can’t get themselves together against the Hokies, a promising season could very quickly come undone.2. LSU quarterback Brandon Harris’ fate could be determinedAfter a shocking upset by unranked Wisconsin, Les Miles will have to reevaluate his quarterback situation. The coach said quarterback Brandon Harris “doesn’t have a lifetime” to become acclimated and that there were other options waiting. Does this mean Harris’ time as a starter is in jeopardy? Absolutely. The Tigers should easily crush Jacksonville State on Saturday, but if Harris continues to commit costly errors like multiple misfires and interceptions, Miles will have to put in a different starter to survive the SEC schedule.3. The Holy War is back Dramatic finishes have headlinedthe teams’ past few matchups, including Utah defeating BYU, 35-28, in the Las Vegas Bowl last year after scoring on five Cougars turnovers. For BYU, that probably still stings. BYU is still on a high note after its come-from-behind win over Arizona, while Utah had an easy start to the season by shutting out Southern Utah. Expect the Cougars to be aggre sive behind veteran quarterback TaysomHill and to use their defense to attack Utah’s new quarterback Troy Williams on Saturday.4. Lamar Jackson, Heisman candidate? It’s never too early for the Heisman debate, and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson is already a favorite. He threw for 286 yards and six touchdowns and rushed for 119 yards and two more scores against Charlotte, but ACC foe Syracuse will prove to be a tougher opponent. The Orange has zoned in on Jackson and will be looking for any and all opportunities to limit his arm power. If Jackson has a similar performance to last week, he will be on course to be one of the top quarterbacks this season. His dual-threat capabilities certainly will have Syracuse’s attention.5. No. 15 TCU could be upset by ArkansasI know, I know. This one is a stretch. But if there is one thing Arkansas has, it’s a bevy of talent. Quarterback Austin Allen, Brandon Allen’s younger brother, has the skills to break out this year, and the Razorbacks also has defensive lineman Deatrich Wise Jr., who pre sured Louisiana Tech’s quarterback twice last week and made four defensive stops. If Arkansas can become more cohesive and turn up the heat on TCU quarterback Kenny Hill (yes, that Kenny Hill late of Texas A&M), the Hogs could come away with a huge win Saturday.
