Game CoveragePreview and PredictionSeason Preview

Florida State returns a lot of veterans including five seniors on the offensive line. There's plenty of experience and talent in the secondary. Oh, and there's a Heisman winner at quarterback. However there are some questions about this 2014 team. Who will replace Kelvin Benjamin and Kenny Shaw? Will the defense be as good in the trenches? However, Oklahoma State has even more questions. They lose more lettermen than any team in the nation. This isn't your typical early season warm-up game. Despite the Cowboys' losses, The 'Noles will need to stay focused against a team that has a good coach and solid recruiting.

There's live football at 8:30 AM. UCF plays Penn State in Dublin. That means there will be live football to watch for over 16 hours. Pace yourself accordingly.

At noon we check in on how Ohio State will fair after losing Braxton Miller for the season. The early results for the ACC has been...not good (also here). Virginia will not likely fair any better against UCLA. Georgia Tech should handle Wofford, however, NC State might struggle with Georgia Southern. They are favored by more than 20, we'll see.

In the afternoon, we get Bama vs West Virginia. It looks like FSU transfer Jacob Coker did not get the starting job for the Tide. However, FSU transfer Clint Trickett will start for WVU. At 5:30, it's all eyes on Georgia vs Clemson. Clemson has to replace a lot of production on the offense. Will the Clemson defense be good enough to keep them close with the UGA?
