The first week of college football gave us the peek we have all been waiting for with newly placed coaches, new key players, and some amazing gridiron action. Week one showed us who was ready for the turf and who was not. Let's look into week two and a few ACC/SEC predictions.
In the ACCClemson Tigers vs. Texas A&M Aggies: In the ACC game of the week, with the Tigers running for the ACC Championship and the Aggies running for the SEC Championship, Tigers win out by 18.Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. South Florida Bulls: This is going to be an enjoyable close game, but the sting is too much for the Bulls. Georgia Tech wins by 7.Penn State Nittany Lions vs. Pittsburgh Panthers: It's early in the season for this rivalry and there could be an upset in the making for the Panthers. But when the clock runs out, the big cats go home. It's Penn State by 7.Duke Blue Devils vs. Northwestern Wildcats: Can the Devils pitchfork hold off the Wildcats? Not here they can't, Wildcats by 6.Boston College Eagles vs. Holy Cross Crusaders: Wow! What a showing for the Eagles last week and the same this week, Boston College by 21-plus.
In the SECArkansas Razorbacks vs. Colorado State Rams: With the Razorbacks looking for win two, do they get it?

Dawgs by 19.Mississippi State Bulldogs vs. Kansas State Wildcats: It's a dog and cat fight but the Bulldogs wag their tails all the way home by 14.Wyoming Cowboys vs. Missouri Tigers: Those Cowboys are out of their field and cannot lasso the Tigers.
