    The biggest game of 2018 for college football's top 10

    4. Washington
    vs. Auburn (in Atlanta), Sept. 1

    Not often does a team’s opener double as its biggest game. But that’s the case for Washington, which needs a jolt of national recognition to fuel its push for the Playoff. You won’t get a much better chance than by beating Auburn in Atlanta on the first Saturday of September. A win there would solidify the Huskies’ place as one the elite teams in the country and the team to beat in the Pac-12.

    Ranking the Best Defensive Lines for the 2018 College Football Season

    3. Auburn Tigers

    1. Key players: Derrick Brown (56 tackles, 9 TFL), Marlon Davidson (43 tackles, 6.5 TFL), Dontavius Russell (46 tackles, 6.5 TFL), Andrew Williams (38 tackles), Nick Coe (29 tackles, 4.5 TFL), T.D. Moultry (15 tackles)

      The star: A 5-star recruit in the 2016 class, Brown put together a breakout campaign as a sophomore. He accumulated 56 stops with nine tackles behind the line of scrimmage, including 3.5 sacks. Though his NFL future is strictly as a defensive tackle, Brown occasionally shifts to end for Auburn.

      What to know: The unit's starters are Davidson, Brown and Russell, likely along with Moultry at the "Buck" spot. Coe―who can play end or defensive tackle―Williams (DT) and Big Kat Bryant (Buck) will be the main reserves. Tyrone Truesdell should also contribute behind Russell at nose tackle.

    Jim Harbaugh, Jalen Hurts and other unpopular opinions for 2018 season

    Washington must beat Auburn, for Pac-12's sake
    The Pac-12, which finished 1-8 in the 2017-18 bowl season, must deal with East Coast bias (it’s real) and face the risk of missing the Playoff for the third time in five years. The conference has alternated spots with the Big 12 the last four years, and the prevailing thought is the Pac-12 is weak.

    Washington can change that in a matter of hours against Auburn in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game at the Georgia Dome. The Huskies would have a better chance of making the Playoff by beating Auburn and losing a Pac-12 game then losing to Auburn and finishing undefeated in the Pac-12. That’s a perception-turned-reality that the entire conference faces now. USC and Stanford have better nonconference schedules, so they don’t need that marquee nonconference win — as much.

    The Huskies have an experienced team that broke through to the Playoff two years ago, and they're back on a similar stage in Atlanta. It's the biggest Week 1 game as far as the College Football Playoff race is concerned.

    Auburn Football: Ranking the Toughest Games on Their Schedule

    2. Sept. 1 vs. Washington (in Atlanta)
    For those football fans that do not pay attention to games on the West Coast, Washington is trending. In his fifth year in Seattle, head coach Chris Petersen has the Huskies perched atop the Pac-12 as one of the elite teams after back-to-back double-digit-win seasons that include two Pac-12 North Divisional titles.

    The Huskies' offense will be tough with four starters back in the trenches and senior quarterback Jake Browning running the unit. The defense was one of the best in the country in 2017, finishing eighth or better in three of the four major categories. With nine starters back on that side of the ball, Auburn is in for a tough non-conference test as the two teams kick off their seasons in Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

    I briefly looked at that and it’s too much sprinkles and rainbows for me. I’m not overly optimistic just yet. Returning everyone from a dreadful offense doesn’t suddenly make them good, especially considering our shit stain OC is back.

    I’m hearing that Auburn is the home team but has elected to wear road whites.

    Washington is screwed now the storm troopers are coming.
