Every 2018 opener involving an FBS team, ranked.

Here’s a list.

  1. Auburn vs. Washington, which looks to be of major Playoff importance. Based on recent years, that means the winning team will finish 8-5.
  2. Michigan at Notre Dame, with a bonus here for happening on college campuses, rather than some NFL stadium.
  3. LSU vs. Miami
  4. FAU at Oklahoma, which should be a blowout, but is still Lane Kiffin vs. a team with a multi-millionaire quarterback replacing a multi-millionaire quarterback.
  5. Boise State at Troy, maybe mid-majordom’s best non-AAC game of the year?
  6. Ole Miss vs. Texas Tech. Anyone expecting these games to be ranked strictly by on-field competence will begin feeling disappointment now. I’m here to see some shit I’ve never seen before, not assemble clinic video on how to play football right.
  7. Tennessee vs. West Virginia, the restrictor-plate version of Ole Miss vs. Texas Tech.
  8. Virginia Tech at Florida State (currently falling, due to the Hokies’ roster issues).
  9. Colorado vs. Colorado State, the rare and precious Week 1 rivalry game.
  10. Washington State at Wyoming
  11. San Diego State at Stanford
  12. UTSA at Arizona State, or the fantastical marvel of Herm Edwards coaching a college football game in 2018.
  13. Northwestern at Purdue, with bonus points for being a Jeff Brohm game, but demerits for being a Pat Fitzgerald game.
  14. SMU at North Texas, your PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW game of the week.
  15. Texas pretty much at Maryland
  16. UCF at UConn. Can you imagine how hilarious it would be if UCF lost the Zombie Civil ConFLiCT to Randy Edsall as a three-touchdown favorite after spending the whole offseason declaring itself national champ? (This sentence will be screenshotted by a deranged UCF fan, so he can show his friends the Free Advertising Time his program’s entertaining claims have tricked the bored media into delivering. You diabolical masterminds!)
  17. BYU at Arizona, because Khalil Tate.
  18. Jacksonville State vs. North Carolina A&T. This list is pretty much just games involving FBS teams, but this one gets a bonus for likely being the first televised Division I game of the season.
  19. Hawaii at Colorado State. Bonus for likely being the first FBS game of the season. Oh right, some teams appear more than once in here, since this includes Week 0.
  20. NC Central vs. Prairie View, because it has the Labor Day Sunday afternoon spotlight all to itself.
  21. Marshall at Miami(Ohio)
  22. JMU at NC State, followed by 17 more games in which the lower-level team could very well win. Everybody loves when that happens!
  23. Cincinnati at UCLA, or Chip Kelly vs. a suddenly talented roster.
  24. Syracuse at Western Michigan
  25. South Dakota State at Iowa State
  26. Indiana at FIU
  27. Central Arkansas at Tulsa
  28. NIU at Iowa
  29. Grambling at UL Lafayette
  30. Richmond at Virginia
  31. Middle Tennessee at Vanderbilt
  32. Central Michigan at Kentucky
  33. Albany at Pitt
  34. Kent State at Illinois
  35. Nicholls at Kansas
  36. North Carolina A&T at East Carolina
  37. UC Davis at San Jose State
  38. Central Connecticut State at Ball State
  39. Northern Arizona at UTEP. I think the FCS team might as well be a road favorite.
  40. Akron at Nebraska, beginning a series of games with interesting new head coaches, whether these things are competitive or not.
  41. Stephen F. Austin at Mississippi State
  42. Eastern Illinois at Arkansas
  43. Charleston Southern at Florida
  44. Northwestern State at Texas A&M, for which Jimbo Fisher will earn a guaranteed $625,000, whether he shows up or not (he did not show up to FSU’s final game of last regular season, so this bears documenting).
  45. Bowling Green at Oregon
  46. Appalachian State at Penn State
  47. Western Kentucky at Wisconsin, a chance for a spirited bunch to make the Badgers lumber awake more quickly than they’d prefer.
  48. North Carolina at Cal
  49. Navy at Hawaii
  50. Army at Duke
  51. Wake Forest at Tulane
  52. Wyoming at New Mexico State
  53. Louisiana Tech at South Alabama
  54. Villanova at Temple, to settle the question of whether anyone outside of Philly is ever allowed to just call Villanova “Philly,” or if we really have to wade through y’all’s very exciting metro-area arguments first.
  55. Kennesaw State at Georgia State: likewise, a battle between those who refer to Cobb County as “kind of like North Atlanta, these days” and those who believe the Braves moved to Mars.
  56. UMass at Boston College: do they do this argument there, too? I don’t know. Since I cover college football, I barely need to pay attention to Boston sports. It’s wonderful.
  57. Houston at Rice, the in-city matchup without such thrilling cartographical stakes.
  58. New Mexico State at Minnesota
  59. UT Martin at Missouri, because Drew Lock will have broken out every Fortnite celebration dance by the time of his ninth touchdown pass.
  60. South Dakota at Kansas State, and these next few games involve some squirrely FCS teams.
  61. Idaho at Fresno State
  62. Weber State at Utah
  63. Elon at USF
  64. Monmouth at Eastern Michigan
  65. Stony Brook at Air Force
  66. Mercer at Memphis
  67. Duquesne at UMass
  68. Texas State at Rutgers, a strange series of four words.
  69. Coastal Carolina at South Carolina
  70. Southeastern Louisiana at ULM
  71. Old Dominion at Liberty. On paper, a decent game, but I’m gonna need a decade or seven before getting excited about any athletics events involving Ian McCaw and friends.
  72. Abilene Christian at Baylor
  73. Southeast Missouri at Arkansas State
  74. Prairie View at Rice
  75. Portland State at Nevada
  76. Alcorn State at Georgia Tech
  77. Savannah State at UAB, and I’m starting to feel physically sad about these, some of which might be competitive, but for what? Let’s move quickly.
  78. South Carolina State at Georgia Southern
  79. Fordham at Charlotte
  80. Howard at Ohio
  81. Incarnate Word at New Mexico
  82. Jackson State at Southern Miss
  83. VMI at Toledo
  84. Delaware State at Buffalo
  85. UNLV at USC, which begins our final group: instant squash matches noticeably less humane than the usual pointless exhibitions by Power 5 teams.
  86. Oregon State at Ohio State
  87. Utah State at Michigan State
  88. Austin Peay at Georgia
  89. Southern at TCU
  90. Missouri State at Oklahoma State
  91. Furman at Clemson
  92. Alabama vs. Louisville

  Donte DiVincenzo followed Grayson Allen’s path to college stardom, then he rightly abandoned it One night changed everything for Donte DiVincenzo, who’s leaving Villanova before the college basketball world ever really got to know him. On Tuesday, Donte DiVincenzo announced on Instagram that he would be signing with an agent and keeping his name in the NBA Draft.

But on May 29, the 21-year-old’s announcement had already felt like an inevitability for weeks.
