Week One: A Look Outside of the Pac-12

With the first Saturday of the 2016 college football season officially in the books, let’s take a quick look back at some of the biggest match-ups to grace the gridiron this past week:

Appalachian State almost completed its upset bid against 9th ranked Tennessee, but fell short 20-13 in overtime against the Volunteers.

2nd ranked Clemson pulled away late from unranked Auburn en route to a 19-13 victory.

Houston, which came into the season ranked 15th, made an early case for the playoffs after a convincing 33-23 win over the 3rd ranked Oklahoma Sooners.

Les Miles’ seat practically burst into flames after Wisconsin snatched an impressive 16-14 victory against 5th ranked LSU at Lambeau Field.

Nick Chubb returned from injury and carried the ball 32 times for the 18th ranked Georgia Bulldogs in their 33-24 win over the 22nd ranked North Carolina Tar Heels.

The rest of the teams in the Top 25 enjoyed a healthy course of cupcakes to kick off the new season.

Because the NFL season won’t start until next week, the college football deities chose to bless labor day weekend with one more high profile game, as Charlie Strong and the University of Texas Longhorns will try to finally turn the football program around when they face the 10th ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish at 4:30 tonight (7:30 PM ET).

Welcome back, College Football. Please don’t leave us again.
