The second week of college football wrapped up yesterday and there were quite some surprises that were sent our way:
1. Strange Week In The Pac-12
Many Pac-12 teams endured some sort of unexpected outcome this weekend. Oregon beat Ohio State which was widely expected not to happen especially with star defensive players Kayvon Thibodeaux and Justin Flowe injured. Colorado was so close to upsetting #5 Texas A&M. Washington continued to disappoint as they start their season 0-2.

2. Georgia, Alabama Remain Top Tier Teams
Both southern schools continued their dominant start to the season with crushing wins over inferior opponents. Georgia put up 57 points with backup QB Stetson Bennett.
3. A&M, Notre Dame, ISU, OSU Headline Overrated Teams
None of these four teams have lived up to the expectations placed on them heading into this season. A&M had two shaky starts to games to begin the season against nonrelevant opponents in Kent State and Colorado. Their rank of #5 is way too high.
Notre Dame barely escaped against Florida State (who lost to Jacksonville State this week; wow), and only beat Toledo by three this week. They don’t look like the playoff team we saw last year.
Iowa State has had a tough going against the rest of Iowa. They beat Northern Iowa by six last week and lost to Iowa this week. Previously, Iowa State was widely regarded as a dark horse playoff team.
And finally, Ohio State, who won a tight game against Minnesota and lost to Oregon this week. It was expected that the Buckeyes would regress from last year as they lost superstar QB Justin Fields, but not this much.
4. UConn Made Its Weekly Statement That It Should Not Have A Football Team
The UConn Huskies have really had a difficult last two years. First, they didn’t play a single snap of football last year. Secondly, they have lost by an absurd amount of points in two of their last three games. They’ve begun the season 0-3 with losses to Fresno State (45-0), Holy Cross (38-28), and Purdue (49-0). None of those schools are exemplary programs.
