Top 10 College Football Games (Week 2)

Game of the Week: PSU vs Alabama

FTC Week 2 GOTW: Penn State vs Alabama

With most of the week 1 college football games in the books, it’s time to to look forward to what impact games are on the schedule for week 2.  Once again, the NCAA schedule makers put together many great games as the non-conference schedule pits many top ranked team from opposing conferences together.  Perhaps none more interesting than our games of the week.  Yes, you heard it right, games of the week (GOTW).  Choosing just 1 game for the GOTW was just too difficult so we decide to feature 2 great week 2 matchups:  Alabama vs Penn State and Notre Dame vs Michigan.

The Alabama Crimson Tide – Penn State Nittany Lions game promises to be one of the best games of the year as these 2 legendary football programs face off in Tuscaloosa.  It will be interesting to see how the physical PSU team matches up against the speed of Alabama.   you can bet Joe Paterno and company will try and control the clock with their strong running game and excellent defense.  The question is will it be enough to slow down the high powered offense of Bama?  Alabama is ranked #1 for a reason so PSU will have their work cut out for them.  If nothing else, Penn State should be able to control the ball and keep the game close – perhaps even putting a major scare into Alabama.

In this week’s second game of the week, we will see another pair of legendary college football teams facing off.  However, both schools have seen better days.  Both Notre Dame and Michigan have not been relevant in college football for a few years.  However, a new season bring new hope.  Both schools are coming off impressive week 1 wins:  Notre Dame defeated UCONN 30-10 while Michigan beat Purdue 23-12.  Notre Dame, under first year head coach Brian Kelly, are going with new starting QB Dayne Crist who looked solid against Purdue through for 205 yards and 1 touchdown. Armando Allen and Cierre Wood also ran the ball well for the Irish.

For the Wolverines, they have to be excited about new starting quarterback Denard Robinson.  Against Connecticut, Robinson broke a school record by rushing for 197 yards on 29 carries.  Robinson ended up accounting for 473 yards of total offense and completed 19 of 22 passes for 186 yards and a TD.  As good as Robinson looked they will need someone else to step up within Michigan’s new spread-option offense attack.

While the above mentioned games come in at #1 and #2 in our College football Games for week 2, below are the remaining 8 games to round out our top 10.
