Here’s the schedule for the opening set of games:

The closest call in our pick ‘em among the day one games is the one with the most intrigue: Houston is getting 71.1% of the vote against San Diego State.

So far the Vols are getting 76% of the vote against Nebraska in our pool. Ohio State holds a slight lead over Clemson with 58%. But nobody is going against Alabama so far, as the Crimson Tide have 100% of the vote and are pulling in an average of 36 confidence points out of 41.
