Watch every single game this weekend. And know who to root for.

Yes, it is too early for a rooting guide. If you are Husky fan, your best bet is to simply root for PAC 12 teams, root for a few upsets among the Power 5, and enjoy the inevitable upset watch game that emerges among those FBS teams taking some FCS foe for granted.

Here are some games to note.

Louisville at #1 Alabama

Technically, Alabama hasn’t yet named a starting QB. However, it is a pretty good bet that Tua Tagovailoa will open up and take the most snaps. Regardless, the big question is just how effective the ‘Bama passing game is going to be with a whole new crop of young receivers.

Louisville also has some intrigue. Namely, can that high octane offense continue to burn after the moving on of Lamar Jackson.

#14 Michigan at #11 Notre Dame

I don’t think many people realize that the Fightin’ Irish are right on the periphery of the top 10. Well, they are. And they have a very unique opportunity to put Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh onto the proverbial hot seat if they manage to beat the Wolverines in South Bend.

Florida Atlantic at #7 Oklahoma

Lane Kiffin visiting Oklahoma in the Sooners first game after Baker Mayfield has a queer feel to it. Could we be on upset alert in Norman? I’d be careful about this game if I were a homer.

Week 1 is always a crazy weekend as teams work out their kinks. Enjoy.

As always, this is your college football open thread.
