The first weekend of the college football season continues with a couple of big games featuring local teams on national networks.
First up is BYU at Connecticut (Friday, 5 p.m., ESPN). And then, on Sunday - yes, Sunday - it's Utah State at Tennessee (5 p.m., SEC Network).
The Cougars are favored to beat the Huskies. And, while the Aggies are an underdog to the Volunteers, they're not a big underdog. A lot of the "experts" are picking USU to pull the upset.
