Ohio State v Indiana

5 Can't-Miss Games in Week 2 of College Football

College football is officially back and it could not feel better. Week 1 certainly left fans with a lot to take in, and now we are all anxiously awaiting Week 2's action. There will be a handful of high stakes matchups in the second week of the season as teams look to build on the previous week.

Here are five must-see games for this weekend's college football action. 

5. Nebraska vs Oregon

Southern Utah v Oregon

The Willie Taggart era in Oregon got off to a strong start as the Ducks trounced Southern Utah, putting up 77 points in the contest. While it was an admirable performance, the competition wasn't exceptional, and they will look to prove themselves against Nebraska in Week 2. The Cornhuskers are coming off of a narrow 43-36 victory against Arkansas State and will be looking to clean things up against the Ducks. 

4. Georgia vs Notre Dame

Auburn v Georgia

This Top-25 matchup got a little more interesting when the news broke that Jacob Eason won't be in at quarterback for Georgia. With Eason out, freshman Jake Fromm is set to make his first career start, and Notre Dame will try to make it a tough debut. The Fighting Irish are looking to bounce back this year after struggling through the 2016 campaign, and a big win against Georgia would do wonders for their confidence.

3. Stanford vs USC

Western Michigan v USC

No team in the Pac-12 lost a game last week, but that's set to change in Week 2 when No. 6 USC hosts No. 14 Stanford. USC struggled to pull away from Western Michigan until late in the game last week and the team will be hoping to make a statement with a strong win in Week 2. Stanford will look to exploit a weak offensive line and get to Sam Darnold in order to pull off the win. This may be the Pac-12 game of the year. 

2. Auburn vs Clemson

Georgia Southern v Auburn

No. 13 Auburn is squaring off against No. 3 Clemson in an important early season matchup this weekend. The Tigers have a few of their stars returning from suspension and they will look to make a big statement with a win against new quarterback Kelly Bryant and Clemson. Bryant on the other hand will be looking to begin his Clemson Tigers' legacy with an early season win against Auburn. This game should be intense for all four quarters. 

1. Oklahoma vs Ohio State

UTEP v Oklahoma

The biggest game of the week will feature two of college football's most dominant programs, as Oklahoma will square off against Ohio State at Ohio Stadium. The Sooners come in ranked No. 5 in the Top 25 following a commanding 56-7 win over UTEP. The Buckeyes had some difficulty stopping Indiana's passing attack and Baker Mayfield will present an even bigger challenge. Of course, Ohio State boast the No. 2 ranking for a reason and Oklahoma will have to be at their best in order to pull of the W.
