2013 TSD College Football Primer Week 1

It’s been over 200 days since we watched Alabama destroy Notre Dame for the BCS Championship and claim it’s 3rd title in 4 years.  The SEC will continue their dominance over the football world, but the up and coming PAC12 may have something to say come title time.  Until then, let’s just enjoy the greatest season in sports.

Thursday

North Carolina at #6 South Carolina -11.5 6pm ESPNclowney3s-1-web

I think the Heels are a legitimate contender for the ACC title, but this is SEC football tonight.  Renner has the talent to be an elite college QB and he can shine if James Hurst and crew can keep the USC D-Line from putting him on his back.  This is a big game for both teams, but USC may get caught looking to Georgia next week.  I’m taking Heels to cover with a Gamecock win.

Mississippi -3 at Vanderbilt 9:15pm ESPN

Soon-to-be major program coach, James Franklin has taken Vandy to 2 straight bowls and should be hitting his 3rd this season.  Ole Miss’ coach Hugh Freeze hopes his top recruiting class can play spoiler in the SEC West and carry the Rebels to a bowl.  They’re journeys start tonight in Vandy.  This game will be about the Rebel WRs vs. the SECs best secondary.  If they get separation, the Rebels win.  They won’t.  Vandy by a TD.

Saturday

Rice at #7 Texas A&M -26.5 1pm ESPN

Can Rice cover the 26.5 points with Johnny Football on the pine for the 1st half?  Nope!

#1 Alabama -19.5 at VT 5:30pm ESPNBama

This game will show the separation of the ACC and the SEC.  Bama hits the road to face an ACC title contender and they are near 20 point favorites.  I tend to ride dbl-digit home dogs, but not vs. the best team in the country.  Logan Thomas gets handled and the Tide’s march to 3 straight starts with a mashing.

Kentucky -4.5 vs. W. Kentucky (Nashville, TN) 7pm ESPNNews Continue reading
