The NFL may be starting this weekend, but there are still plenty of intriguing college football matchups to tune into for the second week of the season on Saturday.

Two games feature ranked teams squaring off against each other while a handful of conference games are taking place, too.

Here are the games to watch:

No. 12 Texas A&M vs. No. 1 Clemson (-17), 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC

Texas A&M came close to upsetting Clemson last year at College Station, and are hoping to shock the nation in a rematch this season in Death Valley. “There will be an upset,” Aggies offensive lineman Jared Hocker said earlier this week.

The Aggies are coming off an opening win in which they had four interceptions, but while they are brimming with confidence, Clemson is still a sizable favorite and boast arguably the best QB in college football. The Aggies only saw Trevor Lawrence for 17 snaps in last year’s game and this year they will get him for a full four quarters, a tall task for any team.

No. 6 LSU (-6.5) vs. No. 9 Texas, 7:30 p.m. ET, ABC

This week’s primetime game features two top-10 teams that will most certainly shake up the rankings and College Football Playoff picture, with the loser facing a tough road ahead to climb back into the race. Texas enters the game as home underdogs, a role they will certainly embrace. LSU rolled out their new offense last week against Georgia Southern in a 55-3 rout, but Texas — with a strong secondary — should prove to be the real test for the Tigers.
