WAC Conference-Games to watch for week 2


No Boise St. talk here although the Broncos do headline the WAC week in and week out. Week 2 is going to showcase a few other schools facing some of the top teams in college football, both WAC teams will be picked to lose their games respectively.  Here’s an inside look on two games that should grab your attention this week.

Louisiana Tech at Texas A&M

Texas A&M led by Jerrod Johnson should have no problem taking care of Louisiana Tech who finished 4-8 last season. A Louisiana Tech team who is pass first will be able to compete in the WAC but not able to compete with Texas A&M who have greatly improved on the defensive side of the ball.

Who to watch for on the Bulldogs

               Quarterback Ross Jenkins is headed into his senior year and ready to take on a new offense. A high temp offense might be key for Jenkins who will have only one returning starter from last year, Phillip Livas, a senior wide receiver. The defense ranked 60th overall in the nation so they weren’t the best or the worst. They have their biggest test of the year before facing Kellen Moore later this year when they lineup against Jarrod Johnson, who might be the best quarterback in the Big-12.

Who to watch for on the Aggies

               Jerrod Johnson is a Heisman dark horse and his top wide receiver Jeff Fuller is back. With many offensive stars it may be easy to overlook the struggled defense. Linebacker, Von Miller was the nation leader in sacks last season (17) and had 16 the year before.  They return eight starters from last season and will need to step it up. They have an easy task in Louisiana Tech and will need to use this game to prepare for Big-12 conference play.        

The Aggies have to many weapons for Louisiana Tech to handle and with Jerrod Johnson racing towards the Heisman he’ll take this game as a pre-test. I like Texas A&M to win easily in this game.

Idaho at Nebraska

Not much of a game until you break it down. The Vandals of Idaho finished 8-5 last season but did not play well against top opponents last year.  Nebraska is easily favored to win this game and should be.

Update from this game: The Nebraska is leading 24-0 with halftime quickly approaching, a few turnovers for both teams but the offense for the Huskers is just to explosive. No players to watch for on this game as it is already taking place. Huskers should win this easy but it may not improve their ranking in the standings.
