College Football Schedule Week 2 Guide
Week 2 of the college football season, and there are some great games to behold. There's the rematch of the title game of the 2002 Championship Game between THE Ohio State and the U with the bad blood of the late pass interference call that the Hurricanes are still convinced handed the Buckeyes the National Championship that season.
There's the matchup between two of among the winningest programs in college football history: Michigan and Notre Dame. Will Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez be in trouble if they don't win? Will Notre Dame take to the new offense of head coach Brian Kelly in his first year after taking the Cincinnati Bearcats to the top of the Big East?
And there's the renewal of the Alabama-Penn State rivalry being held down in Tuscaloosa. Nick Saban vs. Joe Paterno. There's that goal-line stand by the second-ranked Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl on January 1, 1979 against the top-ranked Nittany Lions that gave Alabama the national title. They went on to play eight times in the 1980s with their last meeting being a 9-0 victory by Penn State in 1990.
