Ohio State vs. Buffalo: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

Tajh Boyd and Clemson will look to take down their 2nd straight SEC opponent. - Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

College football's first full Saturday of the fall is here – see what to watch (and who to take).

Ok, ok, so we know if you're an Ohio State fan, your Saturday starts with taking in the Buckeyes' season opener. The Buckeyes are 34 point favorites, and even with the late scratch of C.J. Barnett, should tread very closely to covering that.

But what about the other top games beyond that in college football's first full Saturday of games? On paper, Saturday night's Georgia-Clemson SEC/ACC clash has to be the premier one. It doesn't get much better than Aaron Murray against Tajh Boyd. The 'Dawgs enter this one as 2-point road favorites and it doesn't help that the Tigers under Dabo Swinney are 0-2 against the spread when home underdogs.

Virginia Tech-Alabama probably won't be much of a game, but if there was ever a week to get to a Nick Saban coached team, the uncertainty of week one might just be it. If the Hokies can find a way to protect Logan Thomas, they might, at the very least, be able to threaten the 20-point spread. But if you feel particularly good about the Crimson Tide, there's numbers to back you up; Alabama's 15-6 against September spreads in the Saban era.

Probably the dessert to Clemson-Georgia will be the end of the LSU/TCU game. Though we'll have to wait and see if Les Miles does the right thing with Jeremy Hill, LSU will be around 4-point favorites regardless. And if you need a second course post-OSU/Buffalo, Mississippi State-Oklahoma State might be just what you're looking for. The Pokes are 11.5 point favorites. You might be inclined to go with the favorits; MSU is 0-6 against the spread as road underdogs in their last 6.
