Crimson Tide at #1- In the words of Ric Flair "To be the man you got to beat the man". The Tide are the defending national champions and they are poised to make another run this season. It may not even matter who plays quarterback for them this season. Both Hurts and Tagovailoa are solid players but the Crimson Tide's balance across the board will be the reason they continue to look good.

True Freshman QBs- JT Daniels and Adrian Martinez are true freshman quarterbacks leading their teams. Keep an eye on these guys this season for traditional powerhouse programs like USC and Nebraska.

Virginia Tech-Florida State Favorite Game of the Week-I love Virginia Tech's schedule. The Hokies (besides this game), may be favored for the rest of the way through the season. Josh Jackson could lead the Hokies to both an ACC title and himself into NFL draft boards. Seminoles vs Hokies is the game I'm looking forward to most.
