First Friday of College Football

Win some and lose some... as, the kickoff of College Football moves to Day 2, Friday, August 30th!  Some of my picks have an underdog or favorite flavor to them.  I am just a college football fan at heart...

Morgan State at Army 6:00 p.m. CBSSN (HD) - The Black Knights were only 2-10 last year, and Phil Steele shares Army is 2-14 in home openers, with last in 2010.

Florida Atlantic at Miami-FL 7:00 p.m. ESPNU (HD) - First meeting ever between these Florida schools, and Hurricanes are 24-3 in home openers.

Texas Tech at SMU 7:00 p.m. ESPN (HD) - They used to both play regularly, when each was in the SWC. First game, since 2007, and Tech has a  14 game win streak in series.

Western Michigan at Michigan State 7:00 p.m. BTN (HD) / BTN2Go - First of three Big Ten battles for the Broncos,  as they open '13 in East Lansing!
