We have reached Week 1 of the 2012-2013 college football season and it couldn't have come soon enough.
Last season, we saw Alabama defeat LSU in the BCS Championship Game, 21-0, after losing to the Tigers in the regular season.
Oregon defeated Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl with a thrilling 45-38 victory and the Ducks will once against boast an impressive running game with De'Anthony Thomas and Kenjon Barner.
Oklahoma State won another riveting game against Andrew Luck's Stanford Cardinal in the Fiesta Bowl, 41-38, as Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon starred. All three stars are in the NFL now.
We also saw Denard Robinson and Michigan defeat Virginia Tech in overtime in the Sugar Bowl, 23-20. It was an upstart campaign for the Wolverines. Robinson will be a Heisman contender this season.
And who can forget West Virginia's dominant performance against Clemson in the Orange Bowl? Quarterback Geno Smith tossed for 407 yards and six touchdowns while adding a rushing touchdown in WVU's 70-33 victory.
But enough of last season. This is a completely different season that will inevitably have its fair share of surprises.
We at Bleacher Report will update Week 1's games as they conclude.
