Per ESPN: LSU and Wisconsin both fully intend on contending for their respective conference titles and believe they can be part of the first-ever College Football Playoff, but they're heading into a high-stakes season opener with some question marks under center.

While it seems both teams have a plan in place, it would appear that only the 14th-ranked Badgers have settled on a true No. 1.

Former safety Tanner McEvoy is expected to make his first start at quarterback for Wisconsin on Saturday night at Houston's Reliant Stadium, while Les Miles and No. 13 LSU are set on going with two signal callers in this battle of national heavyweights.

The Tigers capped a 10-3 season in 2013 with an Outback Bowl win over Iowa, while Wisconsin stumbled in its Big Ten finale before finishing a 9-4 season with a Capital One Bowl loss to South Carolina.
