Default Opening Weekend...

Which opening weekend game (aside from your own) are you looking forward to the most?

Click here to browse schedule...http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/schedules

My pick has to go to Illinois vs. Missouri in St. Louis.

The Big Ten will be favored in every game on opening weekend...and heavily in most...except this one. Ron Zook is expected to produce this year with a ton of returning talent and QB Juice Williams. Missouri has a high-powered offense led by QB Chase Daniel. The Tigers should test Zook's SEC style defense right off the bat in week one.

Washington State at Wisconsin

I'm curious to see how the Badgers adjust without John Stocco under center and how productive a slimmed down P.J. Hill is. And thanks to the new Big Ten deal putting 3:30 ABC regional games on ESPN in outer markets, I'll actually be able to watch this one.

Some others I'm interested in- Oklahoma State at Georgia, Kansas State at Auburn, Tennessee at Cal, and Florida State at Clemson on Monday night.

I'll be at OK State/UGA, but will try to catch as much of UT @ Cal as possible. Ga Tech @ Notre Dame.

edit: I'll be at a game w/a 6:45 kickoff. UT/Cal starts at 8. Don't think I'll see that one. Add Colorado/Colorado State

Do you think WSU has a chance to beat Wisky though?

I can understand the excitement of change makin' you wanna see a game but the Badgers are 18-1 at home over the last 3 seasons. No way they lose.

I would have to say the Tenn-Cal game. Both teams look to be very good, and Cal will have the revenge factor working after getting beat by the Vols last year. I will also be very interested to see Ok State/Georgia.

Tennessee's all-time winning percentage at Pac Ten schools: 33%

Nope. No chance in hell. But the Cougs are a decent team and will at least test Donovan and Hill. Better than trying to figure out watching them against Western Illinois or San Diego State.

Michigan vs. Appalachian State

Michigan will obviously win. But the 1000 to 1 chance that they lose is enough for me to hope for it. Just a total I-AA backfire and embarassment. Ok, I have a problem with Michigan, sorry.

Michigan losing to Appy State would be, I don't even know how to describe it. There have been some major embarassments in college football but this one would have to take the cake.
