There are a few times each college football season when the fantasy stars align and we get a matchup to die for. 

Enter Arizona vs. Oregon.

RichRod's Wildcats are No. 3 in the country in total offense (604 yards per game). Chip Kelly's Ducks are No. 5 at 596 YPG.

Is it too much to ask for these two squads to continue on this torrid pace and rack up 1,200 total yards in this one? Probably. But one can dream.

While we're waiting for this track meet to kickoff (10:30pm ET, ESPN), there are 54 other games on Saturday to keep us busy.  

Here's what we'll be watching...


12:00pm ET

Maryland at West Virginia
Last season, WVU won this match up 37-31, but Geno Smith was relatively quiet by his standards (only 388 passing yards and 1 TD).

UAB at Ohio State
Braxton Miller is looking very Tebow-like in Urban Myers' offense. The UAB defense is a joke. Unless the Buckeyes play it conservatively, Miller should continue to dual-threat his way upwards of 30 fantasy points.

UTEP at Wisconsin
Bret Bielema has fired his offensive coordinator and yanked his starting QB. What's the excuse going to be this week if they don't get things going against the Miners?

2:00pm ET

Norfolk State at Ohio
There's been some reports that Tyler Tettleton is banged up.  He's expected to play, but it will be interesting to see if there's any merit to his health concerns.  Be careful with this one.

3:30pm ET

Oregon State at UCLA
The Beavers have only played one game thus far, so they are still a bit of a mystery. Is Storm Woods the legit RB1 in Corvallis or will he continue to share carries with Malcolm Agnew?

Marshall at Rice
This matchup has all the makings of a high-scoring affair, which means it'll probably end up 7-6.

4:00pm ET

Colorado at Washington State
Halliday or Tuel? Whoever lines up under center should be able to shred the awful Buffs.  Did you hear that noise?  That was Fresno State scoring yet again on CU.

6:00pm ET

Cal at USC
Uh-oh, after an embarrassing loss to those smarties at Stanford, Matt Barkley and Lane Kiffin are angry. This does not bode well for a Bears team that it coming off a brutal last minute loss in Columbus.

7:00pm ET

Rutgers at Arkansas
From motorcycle "accidents" to whack-job press conferences to 52-to-nothing blowouts to upset losses to Sun Belt programs, we just can't keep our eyes off this Arkansas trainwreck.  Can Rutgers RB Jawan Jamison take advantage and cement himself as a legit every-week fantasy option?  

7:30pm ET

Michigan at Notre Dame
The Irish defense completely shut down Sparty last week. Can they go 2-for-2 vs. the state of Michigan?  Shoelace OWNS the Irish.  

7:50pm ET

Kansas State at Oklahoma
Colin Klein faces his first real test of the season.  Last year, the Sooners spanked KSU 58-17 but Klein accounted for both TDs and managed to put up 23 fantasy points.

8:00pm ET

Clemson at Florida State
The Noles have surrendered 3 points total all year. That will likely change tomorrow night when Tajh, Sammy, Andre and DeAndre come to Tallahassee.  Last year, this game was a 35-30 shootout with Boyd throwing for 344-3 and Watkins catching 7 balls for 141 yards and 2 TDs.  I doubt they will be able to approach those numbers this time around.

10:30pm ET

Arizona at Oregon
Let's pray for 56-49.

Hawaii at Nevada
Cody Fajardo and Stefphon Jefferson are going to win many fantasy managers their game in this nightcap.
