2019 College Football Week 2 Must-Bet Games
Cincinnati Bearcats at Ohio State Buckeyes
- When: Saturday, Sep. 7, 2019 at 12:00 PM ET
- Where: Ohio Stadium, Columbus, OH
- TV: ABC
Cincinnati went a stupendous 11-2 to finish second to Central Florida in the AAC a year ago. The Cincinnati Bearcats were rock-solid on both sides of the ball in finishing 23rd in scoring (34.9 ppg) and a stellar ninth in points allowed (17.2 ppg).
Ohio State may have gotten left out of the four-team College Football Playoff, but the Buckeyes went a phenomenal 13-1 a year ago while finishing the 2018 campaign ranked a fantastic eighth in scoring (42.4 ppg) and solid 52nd in points allowed (25.5 ppg). However, Ohio State is entering their first full season under new head coach Ryan Day and I’m thinking an upset could be in the works in this one!
Texas A&M at Clemson
- When: Saturday, Sep. 7, 2019 at 3:30 PM ET
- Where: Memorial Stadium, Clemson, SC
- TV: ABC
Texas A&M went a solid 9-4 in Year 1 of the Jimbo Fisher era a year ago while finishing the 2018 season ranked an impressive 19th in scoring (36.0 ppg) and 47th in pints allowed (25.3 ppg). With starting quarterback Kellen Mond back under center the Aggies are poised for even bigger and better things in 2019.
Clemson went an unblemished 15-0 last season while laying an emphatic 44-16 smackdown on mighty Alabama in the national championship game. With quarterback Trevor Lawrence back and a boatload of talent on both sides of the ball, the Tigers are expecting to contend for back-to-back titles in 2019 despite losing a ton of talent o0n the defensive line.
LSU at Texas
- When: Saturday, Sep. 7, 2019 at 7:30 PM ET
- Where: Royal Texas Memorial Stadium
- TV: ABC
LSU is coming off a solid 10-3 campaign a year ago, even if they’re not quite ready to take down SEC rival Alabama just yet. The Tigers finished the 2018 season ranked 38th in scoring (32.4 ppg) and an impressive 26th in points allowed (21.8 ppg). Despite a lot of change heading into 2019, LSU is once again hoping to challenge for a SEC title at the very least.
Texas went a solid 10-4 in year 2 of the Tom Herman era last season while ranking 47th in scoring (31.1 ppg) and 57th in pints allowed (25.9 ppg). With dual-threat quarterback Sam Ehlinger back under center, the Longhorns are looking to make another move toward being a legitimate national championship contender in 2019.
