I've been watching Houston too. It's been a bad day for Oklahoma. It seems like whenever I watch Oklahoma on national TV, they're self-destructing in some capacity.

 

In Seattle, UW is playing Rutgers. Can't watch it because it's on Pac 12 TV, but ESPN is keeping me updated:

 Thanks for playing, Oklahoma. We have some lovely parting gifts. (Cheap plug alert) On our BAFS College Football Preview, Still MIGHTY and I both said the Sooners were ranked way too high at #3. I wouldn't be surprised if Oklahoma goes 1-3 in it's first four games.

 

Going into the season, I wasn't sold on all the "Houston is a potential playoff team" talk. I'm still not sold, but I'm a little more willing to listen to the sales pitch. Beating Oklahoma is a nice win for the Cougars, but I have a feeling this win won't look quite as good down the road.

 

Finally, how great is it that College Football is back?

How great? Try very great!

 

A few thoughts so far...

 

-Houston might be legitimate here. That missed field goal return for a touchdown was a thing of pure beauty and something tells me they're ready to step up. Problem is that the schedule doesn't give them that much of a chance to showcase them... the next biggest game is Louisville towards the end of the season. As for Oklahoma... this could ugly fast if they don't right the ship next week against UL Monroe.

 

-Somebody tell Jim Harbaugh that you don't really need to curb stomp poor Hawaii like that... they already looked bad in Australia, now they looked bad on the main land... what's next, a stinker on the islands?

Wisconsin might be starting to implode here.

 

I think LSU will win this game (they just scored to go up 1) but I'm not buying them as a contender this year.  They still have an issue at QB and with their willingness to pass the ball at times.  Plus, Les Miles is so predictable on big third and fourth or shorts -- every damn time it's that little toss dive play that I've only ever seen LSU run.

Agreed. It looks like a repeat of the Alabama game from last year, only Wisconsin is the team giving them fits in the trenches. 

 

Josh Rosen and UCLA are looking dreadful against A&M, especially on offense. I fail to see what gets people so fired up about UCLA once again.

Was the guy who intercepted already down?

 

Yeah, he went down making the catch.  He was running and celebrating.

 

I kind of want to give the kid the benefit of the doubt now that I've seen it a few times that he actually thought the play was still live, but that was brutal.  For those who missed it...
