3:30 pm #5 Texas A&M (-17, 50) at Colorado (FOX) - There's been no shortage of praise for the Aggies, who downed Kent State last week, 41-10, to open the 2021 season. Following a 9-1 season in which their only loss was to Alabama, A&M is seen as a potential breakthrough team into the championship playoff picture. QB Haynes King was 21-33 for 292 and 2 TDs in the win over Kent State, but he also tossed three interceptions.

Colorado went 4-2 last season and lost 55-23 to Texas in the Alamo Bowl, but came out firing in their opener with a 35-7 whipping of Northern Colorado. The Buffs will make sure this is no walk in the park for the Aggies. They're good enough to compete to the final gun and may spring the upset.

Coin Flip: Texas A&M

Prediction: Buffaloes 27 Aggies 24


3:30 pm Ball State at #11 Penn State (-22 1/2, 57 1/2) - Penn State sprung a surprise on Wisconsin last week, topping the Badgers, 16-10. They should not celebrate that victory long because the Cardinals are flying in to test their mettle this week.

Ball State was the top team out of the MAC last year, going 7-1, and culminating in a trashing of a very solid San Jose State team in the Arizona Bowl, 34-13. Drew Plitt leads a high powered offense for the Cardinals, though Penn state's defense looked darn good against the Badgers. Should be a good one.

Coin Flip: Penn State

Prediction: Nittany Lions 30 Cardinals 26


3:30 pm Air Force at Navy (-5 1/2, 40 1/2) (CBS) - Last year, the Air Force Falcons opened their season with a 40-7 romp past the Navy Middies, but finished just 3-3. Navy never quite recovered, en route to a 3-7 mark.

The Midshipmen opened their season last week with a 49-7 loss at Marshall, so maybe they're not much better that last year's quad. Given this game is slated to be played at Annapolis, the line is shorter than maybe it should be. The Falcons opened their season with a routine, 35-14, win over Lafayette.

Coin Flip: Navy

Prediction: Falcons 28 Midshipmen 13


4:30 pm #10 Iowa at #9 Iowa State (-4 1/2, 46) (ABC) - This annual rivalry was scratched last season, but renews with Iowa winning the last five straight dating back to 2015, which makes the line somewhat suspect, in addition to Iowa's stunning, 34-6, win over Indiana last week with a dominating defense.

The Cyclones had a solid 9-3 season in 2020, finishing with a 34-17 win over Oregon. They didn't look their best in a 16-10 win over Northern Iowa last week, but hat game probably got some of the kinks out. Still, the Hawkeyes were very impressive and should make this their sixth straight over their in-state rival.

Coin Flip: Iowa State

Prediction: Hawkeyes 24 Cyclones 14



7:00 pm #15 Texas (-7, 56) at Arkansas (ESPN) - Redshirt Freshman Hudson Card got the nod from coach Steve Sarkisian as the Longhorns starter last week and Card responded with a 14-21, 224 yard, 2 TD performance in a 38-18 rout of Louisiana.

As expected, the Razorbacks dominated Rice, 38-17, last week and come in well-prepped for Texas. QB KJ Jefferson can run and throw, which will put pressure on the Texas defenders.

This appears to be a close call. Arkansa with the points should produce a win.

Coin Flip: Texas

Prediction: Razorbaks 34 Longhorns 31


7:00 pm Appalachian State at #22 Miami (-9, 54) - The Hurricances got blown out by Alabama, 44-13, in their season opener, though few expected them to win or even keep the score close. Miami went 8-3 last season and retained the services of QB D'Eric King, who can deliver on foot or with his arm.

Miami will get no rest against the Mountaineers, who were 9-3 last year and usually dominate the Sun Belt. Miami's got home field and experience as edges in this contest.

Coin Flip: Appalachian State

Prediction: Hurricanes 31 Mountaineers 16


7:30 pm Georgia State at #24 North Carolina (-26, 66) - Georgia State went 6-4 last season, but opened 2021 in a bad way, losing to Army, 43-10. The Tar Heels have a better defense than the Black Knights and their offense is supposed to be top-flight, though it did n't show in last week's 17-10 loss to Virginia Tech.

Sorry Panthers, you're outclassed here.

Coin Flip: North Carolina

Prediction: Tar Heels 48 Panthers 6


8:00 pm Washington at Michigan (-7, 48 1/2) (ABC) - Washington played just four games last year, won three of them, but opened this season with 13-7 loss at home to Montana.

Michigan was just 2-4 last year, but came out with a vengeance in their opener, a 47-14 romp over Western Michigan. Both teams are usually ranked, but voters want to see something from them first. Harbaugh's Michigan squad appears to have plenty of upside.

Coin Flip: Washington

Prediction: Wolverines 38 Huskies 20


10:15 pm #21 Utah (-7, 48 1/2) at BYU - The Utes have their sights set on a PAC-12 title and this contest serves as a tuneup to conference play. They opened last week with a 40-17 walkover against Weber State and appear ready for prime time.

BYU was 11-1 last year and got 2021 off on the right foot with a 24-16 win over Arizona. They remain at home for this one, giving them an edge, and they should be good enough to hold the line on their own turf.

Coin Flip: Utah

Prediction: Cougars 23 Utes 21


10:30 pm Stanford at #14 USC (-17, 52 1/2) - The Trojans danced all over San Jose State in their opener, whipping up a 30-7 romp. Kedon Slovis threw a pair of scoring strikes and rolled up 256 yards passing on 24-36 throws.

Stanford didn't look very good in their 24-7 win over Kansas State, but they hit the road here and face an opponent possessing many ways to win.

These two didn't play in 2020. When they met in 2019, the Trojans won big, 45-20.

Coin Flip: USC

Prediction: Trojans 38 Cardinal 10
