FOR LINES: http://www.vegasinsider.com/college-football/odds/las-vegas/?s=3076

https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2017/9/9/16279468/college-football-final-scores-week-2-2017-rankings-schedule

No. 11 Oklahoma State 44, South Alabama 7

Will only really matter to the committee if USA finishes .500. Got a shot, but not guaranteed.

Week 2 college football’s remaining top-25 schedule

All times p.m. ET.

Fresno State at No. 1 Alabama, 3:30, ESPN2/WatchESPN

Bama’s gonna win, and this likely won’t matter at all.

No. 5 Oklahoma at No. 2 Ohio State, 7:30, ABC/WatchESPN

The regular season’s best win might be at stake here, as either team is a reasonable bet to hit 11-1.

No. 13 Auburn at No. 3 Clemson, 7, ESPN/WatchESPN

Likely to hold up for either as an excellent win. Both teams are expected to challenge for 10 wins. If Clemson wins, we have a far-and-away ACC favorite. If Auburn wins, the Iron Bowl is already looming.

Pitt at No. 4 Penn State, 3:30, ABC/WatchESPN

Pitt’s got a good shot at making a bowl, so PSU could end up with a decent committee boost. But if Pitt wins, one year after wrecking the state rival’s Playoff plans and 10 years after wrecking the border rival’s BCS plans? We’ll never hear the end of it.

No. 14 Stanford at No. 6 USC, 8:30, Fox/Fox Sports Go

The winner probably has to be considered the Pac-12 favorite for the moment.

Montana at No. 7 Washington, 8, Pac-12 Networks/Pac-12.com

FCS opponent. The committee won’t care.

Cincinnati at No. 8 Michigan, noon, ABC/WatchESPN

Cincy seems unlikely to make a bowl, so this is unlikely to matter to the committee.

FAU at No. 9 Wisconsin, noon, BTN/BTN2Go

FAU seems unlikely to make a bowl, so this is unlikely to matter to the committee.

Chattanooga at No. 12 LSU, 7:30, SEC Network/WatchESPN

FCS opponent. The committee won’t care.

No. 15 Georgia at No. 24 Notre Dame, 7:30, NBC/NBCSports.com

Likely to hold up as an excellent win. Both teams should go 8-4 or better.

No. 17 Louisville at North Carolina, noon, ESPN/WatchESPN

UNC looked bad in Week 1, and it’s hard to think a Louisville win would matter that much in the long run. A UNC win would put the ACC’s Playoff hopes on a little bit of an early alert, with Florida State already suffering both a loss and a QB injury.

Delaware at No. 18 Virginia Tech, 3:30, ACC Network/WatchESPN

FCS opponent. The committee won’t care.

Charlotte at No. 19 Kansas State, noon, FSN/Fox Sports Go

Charlotte’s unlikely to make a bowl, so this is unlikely to matter to the committee.

Boise State at No. 20 Washington State, 10:30, ESPN/WatchESPN

This overshadowed game could matter a lot. A Boise win would make the Broncos the real favorite for the mid-major New Year’s Six bid, in my opinion, because USF’s unlikely to have anything on its schedule that can top WSU. A WSU win would give the Pac-12 North a win over a potential conference champion.

No. 23 TCU at Arkansas, 3:30, CBS/CBSSports.com

It’s hard to see this mattering a whole lot in the long run, other than in conference supremacy arguments.

Indiana State at No. 25 Tennessee, 4, SEC Network/WatchESPN

FCS opponent. The committee won’t care.

2007: 'We blew it against the s*****est f***ing team in the f***ing world'

By Alex Kirshner

   

 

The most famous fullback in West Virginia history owns a spot just off Interstate 68 in Morgantown. Owen Schmitt’s Saloon is part bar, part country music concert hall. Platinum band Parmalee is coming in a few weeks.

His white Mountaineers jersey backs the main bar, surrounded by helmets from WVU and his three NFL teams. There’s a MOUNTAINEERS paddle overhead. But his place has more music posters than memorabilia from his career. Schmitt and his mom shoulder much of the load.

Ten years ago, Schmitt was a senior leader on a top-10 team that came a whisker from the BCS Championship. Now he’s part of the ecosystem that feeds off Mountaineer football.......CONTINUED IN LINK. .........

This is not a league that loads up on cupcakes...unlike some others.  Sure, there are a few in there.  But W. Mich and E.Mich could be tough matches for Mich. St. and Rutgers. Western Ky could handle Illinois...because Illinois just isn't very good.  The Big Ten here is playing 8 games vs. other P5 non-conf. opponents. (Betcha that the SEC will probably have only 1 or 2 this week)

That is true, the NCAA has never really been a consistent outfit on across the board rules. The B1G has a few good teams capable of making a run to the final four this year remember WISC does not play OSU. ;)

Good call on Eastern Michigan Gip. Eastern held on at end 16-13 for win..Wanted to check out a local Maumee,Ohio Senior QB Brogan Roback 6'3 218..Watch this name move up the QB board mid-season..A lot like us.Maybe not the best WR's? but Roback can put it on a WR..

Man... Barrett is simply late on everything. But not all on him... D was pretty much a no-show tonite.

Based on his Post-game comments look for Urban to take over Offensive Play calling.

Holy smokes the BUCKEYES are mere mortals afterall!  :o  

To tell the truth we sports fans can all get a bit spoiled at times over our teams successes we have to realize that they can and will lose occasionally hell even the great and powerful BAMA doesn't win everything every year.....just seems like it.

Now if the Indians can hang in there until November without losing! :lol:

Buckeyes are not top ten period.  Over rated like a big dog.

Losing 3 first round defensive backs clearly hurt as it shows.    And Barrett apparently is really just mediocre.
