Week 1 projections for the top 25 college football teams

The most anticipated game of Week 1 is between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 5 Notre Dame.

A packed five-day weekend that includes the Buckeyes and Irish game starts on Thursday with No. 17 Pittsburgh playing West Virginia and concludes on Monday with No. 4 Clemson playing Georgia Tech.

While No. 19 Arkansas takes on No. 23 Cincinnati, No. 3 Georgia takes on No. 11 Oregon.

For the first Backyard Brawl since 2011, Acrisure Stadium should be electrified. The focus will be on Kedon Slovis and JT Daniels, but the better chess match will be between Frank Cignetti Jr. and Graham Harrell.

Since it began, this line has increased by 3.5 points. Mel Tucker is replaced by Jarek Broussard, Jalen Berger, and Peyton Thorne in the Spartans' backfield.

Whatever the split of first-team reps between Cade McNamara and J.J. McCarthy, Michigan's offence should continue to be interesting. Last year, the Wolverines were double-digit favourites and went 5-1 ATS.
