Week 2 is upon us and the Fresno State Bulldogs come rumbling in to town. Will Marcus Mariota throw an incompletion this game? Will De'Anthony Thomas break the land speed record? Will the Bulldogs trying to keep pace with Oregon's speed while on offense cause Autzen Stadium to light up the third digit on the scoreboard for the first time ever?

My viewing guide for the college football weekend with some picks against the spread for entertainment purposes only.

The kickoff with a rundown of the matchup.

When Oregon has the ball.
