This weekend LSU looks to have a break before SEC play, but don't forget what happens when you overlook an opponent, just ask Arkansas. The Saints look to bounce back after a surprising loss to the Redskins.

IDAHO (0-2) AT LSU (2-0):

Coach Les Miles will remind his team about a small college in Monroe traveling to Arkansas and upsetting the Razorbacks. Idaho head coach Robb Akey said his team has "nothing to lose" against the Tigers. The Vandals are overmatched in every area, the Tigers take charge early and often: LSU: 52 - IDAHO: 3

 

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (0-1) at CAROLINA PANTHERS (0-1):

The Saints and Panthers are both coming off disappointing performances in week one. The Saints could not contain rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, and the Panthers are planning to use the same approach Sunday with Cam Newton. The big question is can the Saints offense keep the defense off the field? SAINTS: 30 - PANTHERS 20

 

FLORIDA (2-0) at TENNESSEE (2-0)

Game Day travels to Knoxville this weekend as the Vols host the Gators in this weekend's SEC marque matchup. While Florida has struggled at the quarterback position, Tennessee's offense has put up back-to-back 500 yard games behind Tyler Bray. That will be the difference Saturday: TENNESSEE 32 - FLORIDA 19

 

ALABAMA (2-0) AT ARKANSAS (1-1)

What looked to be the matchup of the weekend is now looking like an easy victory for Alabama. Arkansas will not give any more updates on the status of quarterback Tyler Wilson and he will be a game time decision. That won't make a difference as the Tide rolls on: ALABAMA: 38 - ARKANSAS: 14

 

TEXAS (2-0) at OLE MISS (2-0)

Texas is undefeated after beating Wyoming and New Mexico. A win against an SEC team would give its weak resume a boost. Ole Miss has started the season with two victories and leads the SEC in total offense (551.5 ypg). A big game for both teams, but only one can win: TEXAS: 26 - OLE MISS 21

 

USC (2-0) AT STANFORD (2-0):

USC did not play like the #2 team in the country against Syracuse. Stanford does not have Andrew Luck this year and will have to rely on a ball control offense to keep the Trojans off the field. In an upset special, the Cardinal will do just that: STANFORD 17 - USC: 14

 

NOTRE DAME (2-0) AT MICHIGAN STATE (2-0)

This will be a close game from start to finish, but Michigan State's rushing attack will finally wear down the Irish defense. MICHIGAN STATE 23 - NOTRE DAME 20
