This Weekend in College Football: Week 0

As usual, all times Eastern and all predictions wrong.

1:00: Nebraska @ Illinois (FOX): Happy Scott Frost Day! The Huskers by all rights should win this one, and in a way it works better for the relative poetic justice that will come later.

2:00: Connecticut @ Fresno State (CBSS): UConn gets their trek to be one of the worst FBS teams ever started bright and early.

3:30: Hawaii @ California-Los Angeles (ESPN): It’s getting to be put up-or-shut up time for Chip Kelly down in Pasadena. The Bruins should be able to hold off a depleted Hawaii team regardless.

6:00: Eastern Illinois @ Indiana State (ESPN+)

7:00: Alcorn State vs. North Carolina Central (MEAC/SWAC Challenge @ Atlanta, GA; ESPN)

9:30: Texas-El Paso @ New Mexico State

10:00: Southern Utah @ San Jose State (CBSS)

Picks so far this year: 0-0
