College Football Top Ten Teams Predictions For Week Two

Ben WeixlmannSenior Writer ISeptember 4, 2008

The top ten teams have shuffled around a bit after Week One, so I'm going to predict what will happen in Week Two. These rankings are going by the AP poll, not USA Today.


1) USC- idle.


2) Georgia

I don't want to say that this is a trap game, because I think the Bulldogs will steamroll the Central Michigan Chippewas. That being said, though, I believe the score will be much closer than many anticipate.

After watching CMU last year, you can't underestimate the accomplishments of QB Dan LeFevour. I don't care if he puts up his stats against the MAC, he's still legit.

Georgia 38, Cent. Michigan 21


3) Ohio State

The Bucks play the in-state Ohio Bobcats. Even without Chris "Beanie" Wells, expect this to be a blowout. The line for the game is currently favoring the Buckeyes by 35 points, just to give you some idea of how out of hand this game might get.

Ohio State 45, Ohio 7


4) Oklahoma

The line on this game is -21 in favor of the Sooners. The Cincinnati Bearcats are a solid squad, and although they come from the BCS-scrub Big East conference, they'll put up a fight... for a quarter.

OU 42, Cincy 10


5) Florida

The Gators face their archrival Miami Hurricanes, a matchup that UF hasn't won since 1985. That drought will most certainly come to an end, it's just a matter of by how much. Tebow and his wrecking crew will get the job done and making Randy Shannon's seat warm.

UF 35, Miami(FL) 21


6) Missouri

After facing a legitimate opponent in Illinois in Week One, Mizzou joins the cupcake parade, taking on Southeast Missouri State. This will be by no means a close game.

Mizzou 52, SEMO 10


7) LSU- idle.

Game postponed due to Hurricane Gustav.


8) West Virginia

The Moutaineers let up 21 points last week to an FCS school, so this weekend against East Carolina would figure to be an upset alert, right? Wrong.

Pat White and Noel Devine will win, but it will be a very good game for three quarters, and maybe even a little into the fourth.

WVU 28, ECU 17


9) Auburn

The Southern Miss Golden Eagles come to Tuberville country, and this SEC defense should and will be ready for dynamic RB Damion Fletcher. The Tigers won't stumble up against a C-USA team.

Auburn 24, Southern Miss 10


10) Texas

Colt McCoy had one hell of an opener, and the Longhorns play a UTEP squad that got blown out by Turner Gill's rising Buffalo Bulls. Expect the Horns to hook 'em a lot, as the score runs big.

Texas 49, UTEP 14
