College Football: Week 2 Weekend Open Thread

After the jump, you'll see all the top college football games this weekend. There are more, and you can find a complete listing here. This is brought to you courtesy of Peter Bean at Burnt Orange Nation, SB Nation's fantastic Texas Longhorns blog.

Besides the Kentucky Wildcats vs. the Kent St. Golden Flashes, I'm inclined to watch Auburn at Mississippi St., at least for a while. MSU is our Week 6 foe, and I want to get a look at them. I will also tune in to the Florida Gators at Texas A&M game, at least a little bit. The Gators are our first SEC contest, and although everybody has written that game off (it is in the swamp, after all), a part of me thinks the Gators might be vulnerable this year. Yeah, I'm dreaming, but one thing Joker Phillips has been able to accomplish is end all these ugly streaks to Tennessee and South Carolina. Maybe he can complete the hat trick.

Georgia at Missouri is another intriguing matchup between old- and new-blood SEC teams, and both are UK opponents back-to-back in Week 8 and 9 respectively. Unfortunately, that game is mostly coincident with the UK game, so I doubt I'll see much of that.

Enjoy! (note: All times are central time).

Spencer Hall's Rootability Index: Week 2

Not sure who to root for? With its return this week, the Rootability Index attempts to help the non-invested college football fan lean one way or another in this week's slate of games using the same logic the random fan uses: that is, none at all.
