After months of anticipation, opening weekend in college football has come and gone. As expected, college football fans saw their fair share of great games (along with blowouts) and individual performances.
One of the more interesting things to watch on opening weekend is the play of freshmen stepping onto a college football gridiron for the first time in their lives. Undoubtedly a rattling experience, some freshmen step up to the challenge, while others need a little more time to adjust.
Here are 10 freshmen who proved right out of the gates that they are ready to play at the college level.
Note: No defensive players were included in this list. Also, the Boise State-Virginia Tech wasn't taken into account.
