College football’s Week 1 provides four monster matchups

Boise State vs. Virginia Tech in Landover, Md., Sept. 6
Early favorite: Virginia Tech
Underdog’s camp priority: Getting more physical at the point of attack. Boise State struggled at times last season stopping physical running games (hello, Ryan Mathews), and Tech brings two dynamic and powerful tailbacks, and a dangerous quarterback who thrives in the run game. “It’s pretty obvious what they’re going to try to do,” said Boise State end Ryan Winterswyk. “Until we prove we can stop it, everyone will try it.”
