Texas Tech heads to Stillwater to take on #24 Oklahoma St. at 7:30pm on ESPN followed by a really good early season Pac-12 matchup as #11 UCLA is on the road against #15 Arizona St. on FOX Sports 1. I've got the watchlist ready for the latter:

Rams fans are obviously going to want to watch Hundley throughout the season. He struggled a bit out of the gate with some offensive line woes against Virginia, a game I had on the week 1 watchlist. And while his performance against Memphis was solid, one of the major concerns NFL teams will have came back to bite him last week: the risk of injury due to his running skills. With RGIII's knee injury likely looming large in the minds of GMs, Hundleys' going to have to deal with those concerns when he does make the jump to the pros. In hyperextending his elbow last week, those concerns were only made more valid. In any case, there's still plenty to like here with some strong young talent that's not 2015 draft-eligible to boot.
So if you're taking in football tonight, do it with us.
