The Week One schedule has only two games that match top-25 teams, so it seems only reasonable to seek information from our experts at the schools involved.
The Cal-Tennessee game is an intriguing intersectional matchup. The ninth-ranked Golden Bears are touted as a dark-horse national-title contender. The 23rd-ranked Vols are regrouping after a season in which they were preseason No. 3 in The Associated Press poll and finished 5-6.
Both teams have much to prove, and there is some conference pride on the line.
The other big game of the week is a traditional rivalry for bragging rights in Florida. It takes place Monday night, when No. 12 Miami plays host to No. 11 FSU.
