Best College Football Games to Watch and Bet On in Week 2 of 2017 Season

Here is a quick look at the best college football games to bet on and watch on TV this week in Week 2 of the college football season. These are the games you will want to watch and wager on if you are a big college football fan even if your team is not playing in one of the games.



Almost all of these games have national title implications or they are great rivalry games or they are games matching up schools from two different Power 5 conferences. In some cases the games meet two or even three of those categories,.

Listed for each game is the time and what TV channel each game is on this week. Also listed are relevant comments if any and the odds for each away team are listed. 

There are a number of home underdogs on the list this week and historically some of those home dogs usually win. Will that be the case this week?


Best College Football Games to Watch in Week 2 of 2017 Season


  • Louisville (-10) at North Carolina  - 12 pm on ESPN


Heisman Trophy winner taking on a now desperate North Carolina team needing a win. Cards struggled to beat Purdue in Week 1 while Carolina lost to Cal. Carolina is a big home dog here.


  • Northwestern (-3) at Duke - 12 pm on ESPNU


Good match-up between well coached Big 10 and ACC teams. Northwestern struggled to beat Nevada in Week 1 while Duke crushed inferior foe. Duke is a home dog here.


  • Iowa (-2.5) at Iowa State - 12 pm on ESPN2


Big 10 vs Big 12 in big rivalry game. Iowa State is a home dog here.


  • Pitt (+22) at Penn State - 3:30 pm on ABC


Pitt won this game last year, can they do it again this year? The oddmakers say no way.


  • TCU (-3.5) at Arkansas - 3:30 pm on CBS


Good Big 12 vs SEC match-up game in Week 2. Razorbacks are a home dog here.


  • Nebraska (+13.5) at Oregon - 4:30 pm on FOX


Good Big 10 vs Pac12 match-up game for Week 2. Oregon is heavy favorite here at home.


  • Auburn (+5.5) at Clemson - 7:00 pm on ESPN


Another good Power 5 match-up featuring the SEC vs the ACC. National title implications here for sure. Oddsmakers giving Auburn some respect here on the road.


  • Oklahoma (+7) at Ohio State - 7:30 pm on ABC


Winner of this game will be looking good while the loser will be on the outside looking in. Big 12 vs Big 10. Buckeyes are solid touchdown favorite.


  • Georgia (+5) at Notre Dame - 7:30 pm on NBC


This could be a really good game and could have national title implications. Georgia easily beat Appalachian State and the Irish crushed Temple in Week 1. 


  • Stanford (+6.5) at USC - 8:30 pm on FOX


Seems too early in the season for such a huge conference game but the Cardinal and Trojans get it on this week. David Shaw is a great coach while Clay Helton will be trying to show he is too at this level. National title implications here for sure. Trojans favored by almost a TD here at home. Shaw fans should be licking their chops.


  • Utah (-1.5) at BYU - 10:15 PM on ESPN2


Great in-state rivalry game. Utah has won this game six years in a row now. BYU is a slight home dog here.


  • Boise State (+10.5) at Washington State - 10:30 pm on ESPN


With Washington State ranked at #20, this is Boise State's big chance to shine this season. Are the Broncos up to the task? You can get odds if you think so.
