Leave it to Ohio State to do absolutely nothing in the first half and suddenly go on a tear in the second. It seems to be a common theme with them.

They've host Oklahoma next Saturday; you can't show everything when they'll have another 48 hours to break down film, especially Ruffin McNeil.

 

Here is a link to the current NCAA passing records, some of these are going down this season.

If IU or other schools of similar tempo, cannot run the ball most game attempts (89) and completions (58) are in peril.

 

ESPN needs a "film room" game every weekend. While Les Miles is with FS1 after tonight, Gene Chizik could work every other weekend since he wants to be with his family more. But Mack Brown hogs the mic too much. And it took me 10 minutes to recognize former Oregon coach, Mark Helfrich.

I watched the Utah game, and all the Utah fans I've seen are really optimistic. Can anyone fill me in on why? That looked really brutal on both sides of the ball.

It was Week 1 against an overmatched opponent, hope always springs eternal.

There were almost two other FCS-over-FBS upsets, with Holy Cross giving UConn a scare (being up 20-7 at halftime) and Rhode Island taking Central Michigan to three overtimes.

I caught the end of the Rhode Island-Central Michigan game... URI had a chance to win it, but shanked an easy field goal.

It looked like it might've been tipped. That said, he shouldn't have kicked it low enough for it to have had that opportunity.

 

(When I saw it live on my phone, I actually thought it was good until I saw the replay.)

.....And now a new breed of Bulldog stands ready to take the field of battle..... Go Dawgs!!

 

Army won their game last night, 64-6, and didn't complete a pass.  Long live the Triple Option, I guess!

 

Ok @infrared41....do we cheer for the conference because it possibly helps out our school come December, or do we stay true to our school?  Because I don't like picking Michigan or Harbaugh to win, but I'll be damned if I'm ever wishing success for the Lizards.  Hail to Michigan!

Missouri currently leads Missouri State 41-35.

 

With 5 minutes left in the 2nd quarter.  Missouri rockin' that Big XII defense....

I think the Maryland QB just shredded his knee.

I know Top 25 lists must be hard to put together after the first 10 or 15 teams, but we need to have a moratorium on putting Texas in preseason polls.

So Florida's offense is a joke still.  And this game will turn into a blowout as the defense gets more and more tired.

I'm sure it won't hold, but USC is down a touchdown to Western Michigan just before the half. In other words, USC is just being USC again.

Baylor is down 9 to Liberty. I'd say it's what Baylor deserves if it weren't for the fact that the Liberty AD had the same job at Baylor when things got dark.
