It’s game week and a new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast gets you ready for Week 1 of the college slate! Barstool Sports’ Kayce Smith joins the show later on to discuss her career path, her podcast with Johnny Manziel and general college football talk, but first Aaron shares his thoughts on all the big games.

Aaron’s Week 1 picks: With Week 1 upon us, Aaron shares his favorite betting picks. Why he’s riding the Lane Kiffin Train, and some of his favorite bets are actually the unders. Plus he calls for an upset in one of the biggest games of the weekend and explains why Louisville has no chance against Alabama.

Playoff picks: Aaron also gives his playoff picks. Like everyone else he is rolling with Bama and Clemson, but has another team playing for the national championship. Also, is this the year Jim Harbaugh finally breaks through at Michigan?

Next up Aaron is joined by Kayce Smith, who works for Barstool Sports and co-hosts the “Comeback Szn” podcast with former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. The two discuss:

Kayce’s rise in the sports media business:Kayce explains walking away from her “dream job” at ESPN got her to where she is today. What went into that decision and why sometimes you have to believe in yourself when no one else does. Also, how an unexpected twist helped her land at Barstool.

Her podcast with Johnny Manziel: Kayce is an Aggie and she explains how her friendship with Johnny Manziel as students at Texas A&M led her to where she is today hosting with the former Heisman Trophy winner. She also goes into great deal of how he’s evolved as a person, and shares the best stories he’s told on their podcast.

Finally, her thoughts on the 2018 college football season: Kayce shares her thoughts on what to expect this season. Why she is in on Jim Harbaugh and Michigan and curious to see how Jimbo Fisher does in Year 1 at Texas A&M.
