One week can quickly shift the narrative for teams, several of which face vastly different expectations than they entered the 2016 college football season with. For LSU, the hot seat underneath Les Miles is now scorching after a season-opening loss to Wisconsin. Is there anything Miles can do to save his job and the Tigers' season?

And few teams are riding higher than Houston after the Cougars stunned Oklahoma in Week 1. SI's Pete Thamel spent last week embedded with the Houston program and joins the Campus Rush Podcast to reveal what he learned about the Cougars and the secret to their success as well as whether a Big 12 invitation could be in their future.

One of the biggest games of Week 2 is the intra-state rivalry match between BYU and Utah, who will meet in the regular season for the first time since 2012. Host Lindsay Schnell sat down with legendary former BYU coach LaVell Edwards to discuss what makes the rivalry between the Cougars and the Utes unique.

And Lindsay and co-host Andy Staples wrap up the show with their picks for the can't-miss under-the-radar games of Week 2.
