College Football Kicks Off Tonight
The college football season kicks off tonight with a handful of games, including four involving Top 25 teams, led by the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes hosting Marshall. At the Las Vegas Hilton, Ohio State is a 28-point favorite. The Buckeyes are 9-0 in season openers under Jim Tressel and have won 54 consecutive regular-season non-conference home games against unranked teams. Down south, the 13th-ranked Miami Hurricanes open their season at home against Football Championship Subdivision foe Florida A&M. The top matchup of the night has Utah hosting 15th-ranked Pittsburgh. The Utes are a 3-point favorite. The final top-25 game of the night will signal a new era in USC football as new head coach Lane Kiffin leads his 14th-ranked Trojans into Honolulu to face Hawaii. The Trojans currently own a streak of 16 straight non-conference wins, but this year they are banned from postseason play due to NCAA sanctions. USC is a 21-point favorite at the Las Vegas Hilton.
