Auburn 45, Arkansas 21 (The SportsXchange)

Arkansas' recent run of good luck against No. 6 Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium ran out Saturday as the reigning SEC champions dropped the visiting Hogs 45-21 thanks to a huge second half keyed by the return of Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall from a brief suspension. The Razorbacks had won three of the last four games at Auburn, but the national championship runner-up Tigers rebounded well in this season opener from their crushing last-second loss to No. 1 Florida State in college football's final BCS title game last season. This season marks the beginning of the NCAA's first four-team playoff format to decide the national champ, and Auburn's 595 yards -- plus a 1-0 start in the nation's toughest conference -- were a good place to begin Saturday. After going to halftime tied 21-21, the Tigers outscored the Razorbacks 24-0 in the second half, keyed by a 32-yard interception return for a TD by defensive back Jermaine Whitehead, who also led the Tigers' defense with seven tackles.

Marshall, Johnson, No. 6 Auburn top Arkansas 45-21 (The Associated Press)

Jeremy Johnson passed for 243 yards and two touchdowns in the first half and Nick Marshall returned from suspension with a 19-yard scoring run to lift No. 6 Auburn to a 45-21 opening victory over Arkansas on Saturday. The Tigers scored the final 24 points after the Razorbacks managed to force a halftime deadlock. Marshall, who led Auburn to the SEC title last season and the national championship game, started the second half after serving his punishment for getting ticketed in July for possession of a small amount of marijuana. Junior college transfer D'haquille Williams supplied the most electrifying performance with nine catches for 154 yards in his debut, including a 62-yard bomb and an 18-yard touchdown from Johnson.

The Auburn Tigers are unlikely to dismiss a team coming off a lousy season when it couldn't even win a Southeastern Conference game. The sixth-ranked Tigers open defense of their SEC championship Saturday against an Arkansas team that's in pretty much the same situation they were going into last season. The Razorbacks went 3-9 and lost all eight SEC games just like Auburn did two years ago before a dramatic bounce-back that ended in the national championship game. ''They went through the (kind of) season we went through just two seasons ago,'' Tigers defensive tackle Jeff Whitaker said.

What to Watch, Week 1: Welcome back college football, we missed you (Dr. Saturday)

Let's do this thing, yo! It’s been a long eight or so months, but the new season is here and with it a new way to crown a champion. College football will forever be changed when the season kicks off with the game between Texas A&M and South Carolina at 6 p.m. ET (OK, technically it kicked off Wednesday with Georgia State's thrilling 38-37 win against Abilene Christian), the first of many contests that will ultimately parse out the top four teams and create the first-ever College Football Playoff. But before we start looking ahead, it’s important to remember how we got here. So, here’s your 2013 refresher: This guy won the Heisman, but created a lot of off-field drama while doing it (and after doing it). His team also won the national title and many people think it can do it again.

Spread Options: Dr. Saturday's Week 1 picks against the spread (Dr. Saturday)

Spread Options is back and we're setting the bar higher than last season. Thanks to a 4-6 final week, we finished the season at 75-65-2. Ten games over .500 is doable, but not great. However, I think it gives us license call ourselves betting experts, right? We're going with it. We are betting experts now. Let's see what Week One looks like. Texas A&M at South Carolina (-10.5), 6:15 ET (Thursday): We're so convinced about this game that it's starting to worry us. South Carolina QB Dylan Thompson has starting experience. Texas A&M QB Kenny Hill doesn't. Williams-Brice Stadium is going to be rocking. Last year, South Carolina was 3-2 at home ATS when there was a double-digit line. One of those games was North Carolina last year. It's a two-touchdown win for the Gamecocks. Boise State (+11) vs. Ole Miss, 8 p.m. ET (Thursday): T his isn't Chris Petersen's Boise State. And it isn't even Chris Petersen's great Boise State. But the Broncos are the class of the Mountain West Conference and need this game to have any chance of sniffing the College Football Playoff. Ole Miss is also this year's trendy non-Alabama/Auburn/LSU pick in the SEC West. While the Rebels could live up to that billing, a double-digit cover on a neutral site doesn't seem likely. Rutgers at Washington State (-8), 10 p.m. ET (Thursday): Rutgers has a beat up defensive secondary. Rutgers also has Gary Nova. While the presence of Ralph Friedgen as the Scarlet Knights' offensive coordinator may make Nova a better quarterback, do you want to take Nova in a shootout against Mike Leach's offense in the first game of the season? Ohio State vs. Navy (+16.5), Noon ET: The J.T. Barrett era is going to begin with a win for Ohio State. And it very well could be a convincing win. But the best quarterback on the field is going to be Navy's Keenan Reynolds, who had 31 rushing touchdowns last year. Navy controls the ball and controls the clock relatively well, preventing Ohio State from stretching the lead. Cal at Northwestern (-11), 3:30 p.m. ET: Northwestern faltered significantly down the stretch last season, but Cal went 1-11 and challenged Purdue for the title of "worst Power Five team in 2013." Each team returns nine starters on offense and Northwestern won last year's game by 14 at Cal. It's setting up to be a repeat in 2014. North Texas (+25.5) at Texas, 8 p.m. ET: There's some Texas optimism built into this line. The Mean Green were a bowl team in 2013 and played Georgia tough before ultimately losing by 24. Yes, North Texas only has nine returning starters (total), but Texas isn't as good as Georgia was and the Charlie Strong bump may not be immediate. Florida State (-18) vs. Oklahoma State, 8 p.m. ET: The (Oklahoma State) Cowboys are back in AT&T Stadium for the second time in eight months, which means they've played more meaningful games there in that timeframe than the Dallas Cowboys have. Florida State and Jameis Winston is out to prove that it's once again the best team in college football and a beatdown of a Big 12 team will help prove just that. Wisconsin vs. LSU (-5), 9 p.m. ET: Les Miles doesn't lose nonconference games to Power Five opponents. He's not going to on Saturday. If this line was at 7, Wisconsin is tempting. However, the Tigers are the better team and will wear down the Badgers as the game goes on. This is going to be close, but it's not going to go in Wisconsin's favor. Utah State (+6) vs. Tennessee, 7 p.m. ET (Sunday): Upset special of the week. We're on the Chuckie Keeton bandwagon. Utah State wins this straight up. The Aggie offense lost a ton of talent, but we're going to go with the best player on the field, especially given Tennessee's QB problems last year. Miami at Louisville (-3.5), 8 p.m. ET (Monday): The return of Bobby Petrino starts off wonderfully for Louisville fans. Miami is starting a true freshman at QB and has RB Duke Johnson off a severe ankle injury that he suffered against Florida State last year. Yes, there's no Teddy Bridgewater, but Will Gardner will do just fine. - - - - - - - Nick Bromberg is the assistant editor of Dr. Saturday on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?
