Top 15 Must-Bet Games on 2018 College Football Schedule
— AL.com sports (@aldotcomSports) August 10, 2018
2018 College Football Week 1: Washington at Auburn (in Atlanta)
This huge Week 1 matchup could determine the postseason fates of both of these national championship hopefuls. Three Heisman Trophy candidates will be in action in this contest – which I have Washington winning outright, by the way.
2018 College Football Week 2: Clemson at Texas A&M
Jimbo Fisher left Florida State for Texas A&M and he’ll get to face his old conference rivals in a huge Week 2 matchup that Tigers will win despite being on the road.
2018 College Football Week 3: Ohio State at TCU
The Buckeyes had some legitimate playoff hopes coming into 2018, but then Urban Meyer got caught up in all kinds of drama. TCU has a powerful defense and I like the Horned Frogs for the big home win here!
2018 College Football Week 4: FAU at UCF
Week 4 has a lot of interesting matchups, but none may be quite as entertaining as the matchup between elite Florida Atlantic and Central Florida. One of these teams could find themselves in a New Year’s Day bowl game!
2018 College Football Week 5: USC at Arizona
The rebuilding Trojans get a taste of new-look Arizona, featuring head coach Kevin Sumlin and electrifying quarterback Khalil Tate. I like the Wildcats in this one!
2018 College Football Week 6: Florida State at Miami
This age-old rivalry is always one for the ages. Florida State has a new head coach in Willie Taggart. Can Florida State get the big road upset with Deondre Francois back under center? Um…no!
2018 College Football Week 7: Wisconsin at Michigan
Can Wisconsin get the huge road win at Michigan to give their playoff hopes a big boost? With the only Heisman Trophy candidate on the field in running back Jonathan Taylor , my answer is yes!
2018 College Football Week 8: Michigan at Michigan State
These two Big Ten and in-state rivals have a long history. Both teams enter 2018 with some legitimate four-team playoff hopes, but I like Michigan State to hold it down at home to hand the Wolverines their second straight loss.
2018 College Football Week 9: Clemson at Florida State
Florida State may be playing at home in this Week 9 matchup against their ACC rivals, but Clemson is the only legitimate national championship contender in this contest!
2018 College Football Week 10: Penn State at Michigan
Penn State lost a bit too much from last year’s team to beat the really elite teams. Michigan may or may not be elite this coming season, but I like the Wolverines to get the big home win here because John Harbaugh finally has a competent quarterback.
2018 College Football Week 11: Auburn at Georgia
Yes, Auburn beat both national championship participants, but these SEC rivals split their two meetings a year ago and I like Georgia to avoid the home upset!
2018 College Football Week 12: West Virginia at Oklahoma State
No Mason Rudolph means the Cowboys are getting hog-tied in this one by Will Grier and the Mountaineers.
2018 College Football Week 13: AKA Rivalry Week
There’s Michigan at Ohio State, Notre Dame at USC, Florida at Florida State and Auburn at Alabama in the Iron Bowl. You’ve got ample choices this week.
2018 College Football Week 14: Alabama vs. Georgia
Well, this rematch of last season’s national championship game could keep one of these teams out of the four-team College Football Playoff – or it could be a preview of this year’s championship game believe it or not.
2018 College Football Week 15: Army vs. Navy
Who doesn’t like the annual Army versus Navy matchup? C’mon!
