The Big Ten took the spotlight last Saturday, as Michigan State-Oregon was the must-see matchup from Week 2. This weekend’s slate doesn’t have a marquee top-10 contest, but there’s plenty of intriguing games around the conference.
After a strong performance in Week 1, the SEC took its share of hits in Week 2. Auburn needed overtime to defeat Jacksonville State, Arkansas lost to Toledo and Tennessee blew a 17-0 lead to Oklahoma in a 31-24 two-overtime loss.
The ACC still has its share of one-sided matchups on the slate for Week 3, but there’s a handful of contests with national appeal. Notre Dame begins life without Malik Zaire this Saturday, as DeShone Kizer makes his first start under center against Georgia Tech.

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood has been suspended three games and fined $50,000 after an investigation into academic rule violations. The news about Flood’s suspension was first reported by NJ.com’s Keith Sargeant.
