Top Week 2 college football expert predictions

One of Sallee’s top college football picks for Week 2: Florida State (-12.5) covers the spread at home against Georgia Tech. The Seminoles are coming off a disappointing 6-7 campaign in 2019, but they’ve turned to new head coach Mike Norvell, who built some top-tier offenses at Memphis in recent years. 

Georgia Tech, meanwhile, went 3-9 in Geoff Collins’ first year last season as the Yellow Jackets transitioned away from Paul Johnson’s offensive attack. They’re looking for better results in 2020, but Sallee isn’t convinced they’re on the same level as FSU at this point.

“Are you serious? The Seminoles are less than two-touchdown favorites against a Yellow Jackets team that is only in Year 2 of a rebuild from the triple option to a modern offense? No way,” Sallee told SportsLine. “I love what Geoff Collins is building in Atlanta, but the operative word is ‘building.’ Meanwhile, Florida State has a new offense, an established quarterback in James Blackman and one of the best defenses in the country. Lay all of those points.”
