Kentucky running back Benny Snell isn't lacking in confidence as his unranked Wildcats clash with No. 14 Mississippi State on Saturday.
Some things are simple.
Norfolk and Blacksburg are separated by about 300 miles of interstate driving.
It figures to be an emotional game when No. 21 Miami hosts Florida International on Saturday, but one hopes it doesn't reach the fervor of the first meeting between the two neighboring programs 12 years ago.
Auburn may have taken a gut-punch when LSU drilled a field goal as time ran out for a 22-21 victory last week, but at least coach Gus Malzahn's crew doesn't have to live down an embarrassing YouTube clip like Arkansas, this week's opponent.
A perceived difference of styles will be on display on Saturday when No. 12 West Virginia travels to always-tough Kansas State for the two teams' Big 12 Conference-opening clash at Milan Puskar Stadium om Morgantown, W.Va.
