Week 1 of the college football season saw some surprising results. While Clemson managed to put up 52 points in its game against Georgia Tech, Heisman hopeful Trevor Lawrence looked a bit rusty, tossing two INTs and compiling just 168 passing yards.

Still, there are a handful of Week 2 games that could end up being high-scoring affairs. With that in mind, here are three college football Week 2 games with shootout potential.

3. Oregon State vs Hawaii (77 O/U)

Oregon State put up 36 points in Week 1, but its defense surrendered 52 points to Oklahoma State. Meanwhile, Hawaii narrowly won a barnburner against Arizona, defeating the Wildcats, 45-38. With two pretty explosive offenses, and a pair of shaky defenses, this game could see some fireworks.

2. Texas A&M vs Clemson (O/U 64)

Both of the offenses in this contests are coming off of a prolific performance in Week 1. Despite an uneven game by Trevor Lawrence, Clemson posted 52 points, thanks to some explosive runs by Travis Etienne, who ran for 205 yards on 12 carries. Texas A&M dropped 41 points in its first game, thanks to Kellen Mond, who accounted for four total TDs in the game. With two Heisman contenders in Lawrence and Mond set to square off, both teams could light up the scoreboard here.

1. West Virginia vs Missouri (O/U 62.5)

Even though West Virginia mustered just 20 points in Week 1, this game still has all the makings of a shootout. Missouri put up 31 points in Week 1, but the defense surrendered 37 to a Wyoming team that didn't exactly project to be an elite offense. West Virginia could look to shake off a slow start by putting up some real points against Missouri's leaky defense.
