Week 2: College Wire’s Patrick Conn makes his game predictions

·2 min read

With week 1 in the books, we look towards the slate of games in week 2, headlined by the future SEC matchup between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Texas Longhorns. This game will kick off Saturday’s schedule at 11:00 a.m. CT. Plenty of storylines for this one including all of the former Alabama players and staff now down in Austin. Can Steve Sarkisian best his former mentor Nick Saban?

Another big matchup features the Johnny Majors Classic in Pittsburgh. The Panthers are set to host the Tennessee Volunteers. This makes the fourth-straight year that Pat Narduzzi will face off with Josh Heupel, dating back to Heupel’s time at UCF.

Last week College Wire Regional Editor Patrick Conn finished 19-3 with his selections, can we go a perfect 23-0 this week with College Wire game predictions? Who has the upper hand this weekend?
