Welcome to a busy schedule in Week 2 of the 2020 college football season. After nine games last week, a bunch of more teams join the fun. Most ACC and Big 12 teams begin their seasons this week. It’s also the first week featuring ranked teams — six Top 25 teams are in action.

Here’s what you need to know for Week 2:

Week 2 preview: Top games to watch

Miami vs. UAB | 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10 | ACC Network

D’Eriq King will lead the Hurricanes in their 2020 debut after transferring from Houston. Meanwhile, UAB was one of a handful of FBS teams to play in Week 1, when the Blazers totaled 459 yards in a 45-35 win against FCS Central Arkansas.

The UAB defense will try to slow down the dangerous King, who accounted for 50 touchdowns in 2018. The Blazers have used top-10 defenses in each of the last two years to help the program go a combined 20-8. That run includes consecutive C-USA Championship Game appearances (winning in 2018). UAB’s offense is led by RB Spencer Brown, the program’s all-time leading rusher.

No. 18 North Carolina vs. Syracuse | 12 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12 | ACC Network

After going 7-6 with a huge freshman season from QB Sam Howell, UNC comes into 2020 with high expectations and a preseason ranking. The Tar Heels scored 56, 41 and 55 points in their last three games to close out 2019, crushing Mercer, NC State and finally Temple in the bowl game.

But how will coach Mack Brown’s group do with even more attention? Howell passed for 3,641 yards and 38 scores a season ago and gets to work with WR Dazz Newsome and RB Michael Carter. UNC will have little trouble outscoring some foes this year. But now the pressure is on.

No. 23 Iowa State vs. Louisiana | 12 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12 | ESPN

This could end up being the best game of the weekend.

Iowa State enters with a preseason ranking and QB Brock Purdy, but Louisiana seems primed to follow fellow SBC member Appalachian State (ranked much of 2019) in the Top 25 sooner rather than later.

Billy Napier led the Ragin’ Cajuns to 11 wins in 2019 and lost by only a touchdown to Appalachian State in the SBC title game. Louisiana brings back its top stars this season, too: QB Levi Lewis (3,050 passing yards) and RBs Elijah Mitchell and Trey Ragas (nearly 2,000 combined rushing yards).

Iowa State started 2019 with a national ranking and escaped FCS Northern Iowa in OT. This could be another close one. It’s a huge test as the Cyclones hope this is the beginning of a breakout season.

No. 10 Notre Dame vs. Duke | 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12 | NBC

It’s a history-making day for Notre Dame. After more than 900 wins, double-digit national titles and seven Heisman Trophy winners, the Irish are doing something this weekend they have never done before: play in a conference game.

For the 2020 season, Notre Dame is a member of the ACC. It’ll get to open up at home against Duke in a season it hopes includes a trip to the ACC title game. QB Ian Book should be ready for a strong senior season after throwing for 34 touchdowns in 2019.

The Irish are expected to be Clemson’s biggest threat in the ACC.

Georgia Tech at Florida State | 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12 | ABC

This is the teams’ first meeting since 2015, when the Jackets shocked then-undefeated Florida State by blocking a 56-yard field goal and returning it for a score on the last play of the game.
