Coming to you LIVE from Baton Rouge, LA!!!! We are here in Death Valley for the 2011 season opening extravaganza as the LSU Tigers host the Oregon Ducks! The Bayou Bengals have some of the craziest fans in the country and they are showing their true colors and wild nature tonight! We are in week 1 of the 2011 season and the energy around the country is intense. We have been waiting for months for this moment, and it is finally here. SH Gameday will bring you story lines throughout the season weekly and today we start with the obvious story of the impact the loss of Terrelle Pryor and Jim Tressel will have on the Ohio State University. During the season, if you didn't hear, OSU lost both their QB and head coach to scandal. If this is the first time hearing this, get out from under your rock. Ohio State will have to rely on Bauserman to lead the offense throughout the season, and Luke Fickell will hea the sidelines. What OSU loses is a play maker in Pryor. He can stretch the field with his legs and has the power to run through tackles. Bauserman is not the runner Pryor is, but is a solid passer. Braxton Miller will be in waiting who could be a future Heisman Trophy candidate for the Buckeyes. It is going to be interesting to see how OSU comes out of the smog of the scandal during the offseason. Now let's get to this weeks top matchups around the nation! Highlighting our SH'ers games this week, Coach Sdid and his Temple Owls will take on the Troy Trojans and Coach Bamagrad. This matchup will be a low scoring affair and will likely come down to the wire. Our prediction... In a huge week 1 matchup, two of the top coaches in SH face off to start off their careers with bragging rights. Coach CA and Coach Forever are sure to have an epic battle to decide the winner. Our prediciton... Now to the moment these fans have been waiting for! LSU and Oregon both have very promising teams coming into this game. Both have talent on both sides of the ball that will surely carry them far into their conference title outcomes. Both will battle tonight in this stadium to start their chase for the National Championship on the right foot. Only one will survive.... Our prediction... The LSU Tigers!
