Figure out when and how to watch every game on Week 2's college football schedule.

We are moving on to Week 2 of the college football season after a pretty typical Week 1. Justin Fields and Jalen Hurts both starred for their new teams in impressive debuts, setting the tone for what's (hopefully) to come this season. After a few games under Friday night lights to start your weekend, Week 2's upcoming slate highlights a few fun matchups that should make for some great Saturday ball.

We've got you covered with the top games on tap and the matchups you don't want to miss, followed by the complete schedule for the weekend.

Saturday, noon slate

No. 21 Syracuse at Maryland: The Terps might be the unranked team in this matchup but do not sleep on the possible struggle that Syracuse will face this weekend in College Park. The Orange enter this potential trap game just one week away from hosting No. 1 Clemson. The Tigers will visit the Carrier Dome at night during homecoming, which has fans hoping that a win over Maryland and a hot 2–0 start could mean the school's first-ever visit from College GameDay. But they have to get through the rebuilding Terps first. New coach Mike Locksley, quarterback Josh Jackson and running back Anthony McFarland have their work cut out for them, especially against Syracuse's talented defensive line. Can Cuse quarterback Tommy DeVito, who had a poor Week 1 showing vs. Liberty, step up and secure a second straight win this weekend?

You could also make a case for Cincinnati at No. 5 Ohio State as a noon-watch worthy game if you want to see Justin Fields shine some more in this in-state showdown.

Saturday, afternoon slate

No. 12 Texas A&M at No. 1 Clemson: Aggies offensive lineman Jared Hocker has already called for “an upset” in Death Valley this weekend, which means you know this game will be good. This is one of two games this weekend featuring a pair of ranked opponents. Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond scored four touchdowns in Week 1, but the Tigers have golden boy Trevor Lawrence and star running Travis Etienne, who was unstoppable last week with 205 rushing yards and three TDs. Two high powered offenses should make for a fun Saturday SEC afternoon showdown.

Saturday night slate

No. 6 LSU at No. 9 Texas: Alright, alright, alright. If you didn't get your fill of the Lone Star State in the afternoon slate, stick around for Saturday night's showdown between these two top-10 teams. The Longhorns have the home-field advantage and one of the nation's best quarterbacks in Sam Ehlinger – and they have the one and only Mathew McConaughey who you can watch all night on the sidelines for some nice eye candy to complement the clash (see below) – while the Tigers boast one of the most talented defenses in the nation and an offense that's not worth underestimating. Their new no-huddle, spread scheme will get a test in a rowdy road environment. Sparks will fly Saturday night and you won't want to miss out.
