The Jayhawks’ first year head coach, David Beaty, has many pieces to pick up in a Kansas program that has been decimated by players lost to injury, graduation and the NFL draft. While rebuilding, this may be one of KU’s few chances to get into the ‘Win’ column.

The Red Raiders will be keeping a close eye on three key factors. Can Patrick Mahomes and/or Davis Webb take care of the ball, can the team as a whole cut down on the number of needless penalties and can the defense get off the field on third down?

Akron vs Oklahoma

From walk-on at Texas Tech to starter at Oklahoma, Baker Mayfield gets leads the new-look, Air Raid Sooner offense. The closer this season gets, the more hype seems be building around this OU team to do big things.

South Dakota vs Kansas State 

DATE & TIME                           Saturday, September 5th @ 6:10 PM CST

Kansas State looks to extend their streak of consecutive eight win seasons to five and their bowl appearances to six. Bill Snyder always seems to prove his doubters wrong. Can he do it again? To make it happen he’ll have to replace a starting QB and two 1000 yard receivers.

Texas vs #11 Notre Dame 

DATE & TIME                           Saturday, September 5th @ 6:30 PM CST
WHERE                                       Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana
BETTING LINES                     Notre Dame -9.5 (O/U 54.5)
TV                                                   NBC

A win in Notre Dame Stadium on national TV would be just the marquee win Longhorn Nation is looking for. It would instill faith that Charlie Strong has this program headed in the right direction. This game also has a fun little twist. A win for Texas would move the Longhorns into a tie with Notre Dame for the second most wins in NCAA history.

Georgia Southern vs West Virginia  

DATE & TIME                           Saturday, September 5th @ 6:30 PM CST
WHERE                                       Mountaineer Field in Morgantown, West Virginia

West Virginia will be looking to prove a point in this fifth opening game for Dana Holgerson. While most analysts recognize their experienced defense and talented skill players, the Mountaineers have, for the most part, been left out of many people’s Big 12 championship discussions.
