Florida State vs. Murray State
It's great to have college football back, but let's be honest, Week 1 was pretty bad.
With so many top-ranked schools choosing to start off the season with cupcake opponents, the first weekend was mostly filled with boring blowouts.
Even the marquee matchup of Alabama and Michigan was a dud.
What's the point of watching Oklahoma State embarrass a team like Savannah State by 84 points, or watching Florida State hang 69 points on Murray State?
What does that prove?
It's a joke that schools charge money for these farcical games, but that's just the nature of the sport these days. Profit trumps quality and tradition.
Luckily, Week 2 will feature a few more intriguing matchups such as Washington at LSU, Florida at Texas A&M, Georgia at Missouri, Nebraska at UCLA and Miami at Kansas State.
Right now, it's simply hard to make any true judgements about most top-ranked teams considering the quality of their opponents was so awful. However, we should learn more about the top contenders once conference play finally kicks in and the teams start to treat the games with more importance.
