College football blitzed back into action with all the fury of an unblocked end racing off the edge. An offseason of tumult already seems a distant memory, courtesy of an exciting first night.
Vanderbilt-Ole Miss and Utah-Utah State were more than adequate appetizers for the Week 1 main course on Saturday. The Rebels and Utes mounted the kind of raucous rallies typically reserved for midseason.
Opening night also featured a premature eulogy for a Heisman Trophy candidacy.
Buckle in, college football fans. Just one day is in the books, but the bar has already been set high.
