Starting on Thursday night, the sports world will be blessed with five straight days of college football action.
Sunday nights are typically dominated by the NFL, but this weekend's Week 1 matchup between LSU and Florida State will be the primetime focal point of the football world.
ESPN college football analyst Bill Connelly has released his predictions for several big-time college football matchups this week — including this SEC-ACC contest.
Connelly thinks it will be a closely-contested affair, taking the Tigers 28-24 over the Seminoles.
Connelly's prediction is in line with Las Vegas. Most sports books have LSU as three-point favorites over Florida State.
Neither of these two historically great programs are ranked heading into the 2022 season. The Seminoles opened up their season with a 47-7 victory over Duquesne in Week 0.
Sunday night's contest will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. ET in LSU's Tiger Stadium.
This will be the Tigers' first game under former Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly.
