2. Texas vs UCLA

Game time: Saturday, September 13th
7:00 PM CT | TV: FOX

Arguably the best game that features a Big 12 team this season. UCLA is largely considered a contender for the Pac-12 and could earn a spot in the College Football Playoff. This would be a great pick up for the Bruins as they’ll have to travel to Arlington, making it more a road game for them and the Longhorns would be playing in a familiar environment. If Charlie Strong removed all the crap surrounding the team and the Longhorns look dominant in their first two games, this could be a classic.
