With the NFL season kicking off, this week's slate of college games are a bit of a dropoff from opening week.  There's no games featuring two ranked teams and no ABC primetime game this week as Brent & Herbie call a 3:30 ET ESPN game - Texas A&M's SEC opener against Florida.  As far as primetime goes, Nebraska at UCLA (Fox) and Georgia at Missouri (ESPN2) are your top picks.  The fun gets started tonight with Pittsburgh travelling to Cincinnati for ESPN's Thursday night game, looking to rebound from getting beat handily at home by Youngstown State.  Jeah!  Big East!  Get your full Week 2 college schedule after the jump.
