Who To Watch
USC at Stanford (Sat 3:30pm ET, ABC)
Week 2 doesn’t have much to offer, and your Saturday primetime is already booked with Notre Dame vs. Michigan, so I’ll recommend a matchup of two future ND opponents. Out west on The Farm, see Steve Sarkisian in his first true road test against David Shaw’s Cardinal.
Jeff Sagarin doesn’t issue a preseason strength-of-schedule ranking, so I’ve used Phil Steele’s 2014 preseason rank for this week.
