      Georgia Southern at Western Michigan is a fascinating game. One team on the rise (Western) and another (GA Southern) that has been playing at a high level at its level of football for years.

      Georgia Southern is the underdog in this one but should come away with the win. GS has the more talented team but they haven’t played up to their potential so that’s concerning. I think the Eagles clean up the penalties and break open a few big plays, GS 35 WM 31.

      Well, it may be another long week for Purdue & Vandy again.
      I thought Wisconsin was going to have it rough this year & I can see Clemson getting over that hurdle by beating
      Oklahoma needs a week off after the start of this season.

      I really wish you would exclude match-ups with less than 4 games for the most likely to win section. A whole slew of 1-0s is pointless and provides no interesting information (somebody had to win the first game).

      I like these articles, good job Amy.
      I find it funny that Virginia has never beaten a Pac-12 team, may be the reason the Pac-12 keeps scheduling them.
      Nice to see Pitt vs Penn St again & I hope Vandy can get out of this slump over the Blue Raiders.
      If the Bristol game goes well, be sure to know that it will be a annual thing but well really need to be two power house traditional teams to fill it up.

      Virginia along with Tennessee and Vanderbilt are among the few P5 east coast and/or south programs which will agree to play a home-and-home with top P5 west coast programs (e.g. P12 Stanford, Oregon, USC).

      The top P12 programs would gladly play Alabama, Auburn, and LSU in home-and-homes, but those programs would rather stay east, unless playing a non-top P12 program located in an urban metropolis (e.g. LAX, SFO, PHX).

      Texas A&M and Georgia cancelled with Oregon. But then TAM has no problem doing a home-and-home with UCLA, Colorado or Arizona St. And LSU will play Washington and UCLA in home-and-homes but not do a home-and-home Oregon. Auburn wont do a home-and-home with Oregon, but will do one with Cal, Same with Ol Miss. I can understand Georgia’s and Florida’s reluctance to come west as they also have an OOC rivalry game on their schedule every season. But the other programs I mentioned do not have that issue. Good to see Vandy has courage to visit Stanford.

      But for the most part the ACC refuses to fly over the Mississippi. BC-USC series completed last year. After the Virginia-Oregon series, the only two future ACC-P12 series are on the schedule (Cal-NC, Colo-GT). Clemson will not come west.

      Michigan St, Michigan, Ohio St and Texas have no problem playing top P12 programs home-and-home series.

      Home-and-home games define college football.

        Your SEC defenders will talk about playing 8 tough league games as a justification for not traveling too far for a home & home. Tough teams like Vandy, Kentucky-loser to Southern Miss @ home, Tennessee and Arkansas near losers @ home to other G5 teams, MIssissippi St. loser to 7 year G5 program South Alabama, LSU and Missouri (at least they went on the road) losers to unranked teams. What more can you say? SEC stalwarts want a minimum of 7 home games a year plus the top ones like Alabama want the money from the neutral site games. No home & home schedules for them or Florida-which hasn’t left Florida in over 25 years.

        It amazes me that no matter what the SEC does it is never good enough for HATERS. They lost 7 games this past weekend you should all be happy!.If Auburn is playing Oregon in Dallas and home & home with Cal it shows they are at least doing something…DAMN. You say UVa plays west coast games why not do a little research, they have played 5 games against the pac 12 teams in over 100 years of football Come on Walker get more bullets before shooting your little pop gun

        Georgia played a home-and-home with Arizona State. Missouri has never feared going on the road. A&M will go to UCLA next year. LSU has recently played at Washington. Vanderbilt will travel. Arkansas has played Texas, Rutgers and others in home-and-homes recently. So quit it. The SEC goes on the road often.

        Another thing to consider it the need to travel? For a team like Clemson to play USC they fly over four dozen other Power 5 programs. There is no reason for them to travel that far to play USC when they could play Georgia, Auburn, Oklahoma or any number of other high profile games. These institutions aren’t working with an unlimited supply of cash. They try to limit expenditures, too. If you are Michigan State, you are going to have to travel to play someone out of conference. If you are Georgia, there are seven out of conference Power 5 schools only a state away. it’s simple.

      Yes, I enjoyed the article. Now, we just need bowls that tie-ins the PAC-12 and SEC/ACC, and the nation will watch it every year.

      Ohio State will likely blow out Tulsa 80 – 0 in their ‘first ever meeting’… Tulsa isn’t even as good as MAC Champ: BGSU … that tOSU blew out 77 – 10 last weekend… but Ohio State meets some toughest teams later: #10 Wisconsin, #27 Northwestern, #26 PSU, #28 Nebraska, #12 MSU, #5 UM… then blows away #1 Alabama and #3 FSU in playoffs…

      Lopsided, yes. However, Vanderbilt is actually 13-3 all-time against Middle Tennessee. With that being said, they are also 11-3 in Nashville against the Blue Raiders.

      You were only off by 36 points..
      Plus you make the comment “but Ohio State meets some toughest teams later: #10 Wisconsin, #27 Northwestern, #26 PSU, #28 Nebraska, #12 MSU, #5 UM… then blows away #1 Alabama and #3 FSU in playoffs.”
      Well, Northwestern is 0-2, Penn St just lost to Pitt, we will see what Nebraska is about this week versus the Ducks, Wisconsin, Mich St & Michigan, I will give you. But I doubt The Ohio State is blowing Bama or FSU away anytime soon.

      It cost a lot of money for an SEC vs Pac-12 to play a home n home, cost to fly the team, coaches, band, boosters….hell, they’re are already losing money. Then to ask the fans to travel that far, I am not against it but no poor or middle class person is able to do that. I am not sure if one Virginia fan even showed up the Oregon game (joking). I will be a little bias & say that college football in the east just means a little more to fans then the west but you will still see (as we have in the past) SEC vs Pac-12 home n home & neutral site games, yet people still want someone to complain about that it is not happening, but it is.
      Home n home games do not define college football, money & excitement do! If that was the case then Bama should play at W.Kentucky, The Ohio State should play at Tulsa, Oklahoma should play at La.Monroe ….etc
      Hell, those stadiums don’t hold over 35,000 fans & once again, the same people that complain about home n home don’t even go to both of the games so what does it matter.
