College football's Week 2 slate for the 2019 season features 74 games, and our NCAA experts are ready with their predictions and picks. The Week 2 action begins with four contests on Friday night. Marshall at Boise State headlines the action on Friday, while Virginia, Wake Forest and Arizona State are heavy favorites in non-conference matchups. Saturday's slate is filled with intriguing games, including Army-Michigan, Cincinnati-Ohio State and Syracuse-Maryland in the first window of matchups. The afternoon schedule features Texas A&M at Clemson, Nebraska-Colorado and San Diego State-UCLA. The Week 2 slate continues at night with a huge showdown in Austin between LSU and Texas. BYU-Tennessee, Miami-North Carolina and Arkansas-Ole Miss are also worth monitoring in the night slate, with Stanford-USC, Minnesota-Fresno State, Oregon State-Hawaii and California-Washington rounding out the late action on Saturday.
