Thursday September 1st, 2016

The slough of the off-season is finally over, and we have actual games to talk about. Hosts Andy Staples and Lindsay Schnell discuss which below-the-radar games could be among the most compelling in Week 1.

Houston coach Tom Herman also talks with Andy about preparing to face defending Big 12 champion Oklahoma, getting ready for a season amid Big 12 expansion talk and his career that could have been in broadcasting. Lindsay sits down with Washington State coach Mike Leach to discuss Leach's latest passion project—learning Spanish—and the Cougars' dark-horse Heisman Trophy candidate, quarterback Luke Falk.

And perhaps the most coveted piece of information of all: Andy reveals his No. 1 choice for ribs, brisket and pulled pork.
