Read on for a look at the games available in this week's pick 'em.

Utah State Aggies at #22 Auburn Tigers (12pm ET, ESPN2)

This appears to be an easy game for Auburn. Although they have lost playmakers from their National Championship team, the Aggies are coming off their 13th consecutive losing season.

Northwestern Wildcats at Boston College Eagles (12pm ET, ESPNU)

Both of these teams finished with 7-6 records last year, but Northwestern may be without Dan Persa who suffered an Achilles tendon injury last season. If Persa is healthy, the Wildcats could pull this one out.

UCLA Bruins at Houston Cougars (3:30pm ET)

UCLA seems to be a favorite in this game. One key factor will be if UCLA can handle the heat and humidity in Houston. Case Keenum is also back for a 6th year and has plenty of skill players around him.

Western Michigan Broncos at Michigan Wolverines (3:30pm ET, ABC)

The Wolverines should have this game in the bag, but Denard Robinson will be trying to adapt to a new offensive system under Al Borges, who runs a more pro style offense.

Minnesota Golden Gophers at #25 USC Trojans (3:30pm ET, ABC)

The gophers went 3-9 last year and now have a new coach and a new quarterback going on the road to Southern Cal. This is a rebuilding year for Minnesota and there shouldn't be any surprises here.

Brigham Young Cougars at Ole Miss Rebels (4:45pm ET, ESPN)

This one is hard to pick. Ole Miss has had its share of preseason antics. Houston Nutt finally settled on a starting QB with Brunetti. Expect a more pro style look from the Cougar offense this year too.

East Carolina Pirates at #12 South Carolina Gamecocks (7:00pm ET)

The big story line here is that Stephen Garcia will not start for the Gamecocks, but will he be the starting in the second half?

#5 Boise State vs. #19 Georgia Bulldogs (8:00pm ET, ESPN)

Boise State will, again, be looking for respect on a national level. Georgia is looking to bounce back after a 6-7 season in 2010 and Mark Richt wants to cool off his coaches seat with a big win in the Georgia Dome.

#3 Oregon Ducks vs #4 LSU Tigers (8:00pm ET, ABC)

The road to the BCS National Championship starts for both of these teams in Dallas, Texas. A win for either team will put them in the drivers seat to control their own destiny in 2011.

Colorado Buffaloes at Hawaii Warriors (10:15pm ET, ESPN2)

Hawaii's depth will be tested with the announcement that two of their starters will be suspended for the opening game. Colorado is coming in with a new membership in the PAC-12 and a new coaching staff. Expect them to run the ball, a lot, to keep Hawaii's high flying offense off the field as much as possible.

So there you have it. Again, make sure your picks are in before 11am tomorrow morning! We will have a full recap of the games, the full pick 'em results, and our first weekly winner on the site by next Monday.
