The 25 Biggest Takeaways from Week 1 of the College Football Season
Brynn Anderson/Associated Press

After any full week of college football, it is difficult to parse through what happened and land on just 25 takeaways.

After Week 1, it's damn near impossible.

The first week of the season means the first glimpse at so many different teams, and the first glimpse at so many different teams means that so many new things are learned. The questions we spent all summer asking got their first 60 minutes of answers, and they got them at almost every FBS school.

Ultimately, trimming the list down to 25 required an emphasis on national import. Impressed as we were with UAB's 48-10 win over Troy in Bill Clark's head coaching debut, it won't affect the College Football Playoff discussion the same way as power-conference dealings.

The 25 takeaways that were included are germane to the national discussion, which for the most part meant they concern the biggest programs. The only exceptions to this are group-of-five teams with a legitimate chance to be the automatic qualifier in a CFP bowl.

Sound off below to let us know your biggest takeaway from Week 1.
