College football in September brings plenty of good non-conference matchups, with some league games happening as well. Depending on a team’s non-conference slate and a league game snuck in there somewhere, it could make for a challenging beginning of the season. Just ask first-year Oregon coach Dan Lanningwho travels to Atlanta to face Georgia and hosts BYU’s high-flying offense later in the month.
“Our goal is to win every single game at the University of Oregon,” Lanning said at Pac-12 Media Day when asked about the program’s matchup against Georgia being important for the conference. “Certainly, it’s an important game, just like every game is important. After that game, the next game will be the next most important game. So, we’re going to focus on that. Oregon — like I said — is a national brand.
“And it’s fun when you’re in a place where you get to play premier opponents like Georgia.”
