Week two is approaching, and it's time to take a look around the league as teams continue preparations for their opponents.
- When Florida plays Miami this weekend, it could be historic. It will likely be the last regular season meeting between the Gators and the Hurricanes and the end of a mean-spirited rivalry.
- Nick Marshall will make his second start for Auburn this weekend. The quarterback’s rising comfort level and instincts have inspired confidence from his coaches.
- The debut of LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron was a success. Head coach Les Miles says Cameron brings "confidence, chemistry" to Tigers offense.
- South Carolina's young linebackers looked impressive in week one, but they're eager for their second test, a road game at Georgia.
- In week one, there were plenty of FCS teams that pulled upsets over FBS opponents. That’s why Ole Miss is not overlooking Southeast Missouri, its week two opponent.
- Georgia offensive tackle John Theus lost his starting job prior to the season. He's taking his benching in good humor.
- When he was at Arkansas, Bobby Petrino had success against both Tennessee and defensive coordinator Willie Martinez. Now Petrino is at Western Kentucky, and Saturday the Volunteers will get another shot against him.
- Even though Vanderbilt's loss to Ole Miss in the opener was heartbreaking, it has served as teaching tool for the defense.
- With week one in the books, it's time to look ahead to week two -- the storylines, the pivotal players and predictions.
