Finally, college football rocked last Saturday with a full-blown schedule offering some major-hyped games—a few of which lived up to expectation.
Most contests, however, were just glorified practice sessions where the big guys pounded on the little guys trying to score more points than any other team on Saturday—playing the rankings game.
So much money and prestige is attached to those elusive ranking points in college ball these days.
Typical of the non-conference schedule, many lopsided contests were front and center, replayed during numerous sports shows debating their impact.
Games where No. 5 Georgia scored 45 points over Buffalo and No. 18 Ohio State scored 56 points in a contest with Miami of Ohio seemed over the top.
Better yet, No. 7 Florida scored 69 points against Murray State and West Virginia did the same while playing Marshall. But the biggest walloping came when Oklahoma State scored 84 points while shutting out Savannah State? Who?
But onto the truly important matches of the day—what have we learned from week one in the Big 10 and how will that help us to decide the winners in the Big 10?
How will week two affect the Hawkeyes ranking?
Which teams will end week two with an 0-2 record and which will end 2-0? These are the important questions as Saturday nears, and here is the skinny on what happens in week 2.
