Week One Is History

The first week of the 2012 College Football Season is history.  There were some good games and there were some head-scratchers.  Most eyes were on the big one in Big D at Cowboys Stadium, and the Alabama Crimson Tide gave us an eye full with an impressive 41-14 victory over #8 Michigan.  The Nebraska Cornhuskers were impressive with a 49-20 win over a good Southern Mississippi team.  The Cal Bears fell to the Wolf Pack of Nevada 31-24 and this should give reason for concern for the other Mountain West teams.  Speaking of the Mountain West Conference, New Mexico led by new HC Bob Davie, defeated the Southern Jaguars 66-21 (NM was 1-11 last year and 1-11 in 2010).  A game that took place at InfoCision Stadium in Akron, where UCF defeated the Zips 56-14, is of interest.  The UCF Knights return to Ohio next week to play Ohio State.  The first week of College Football came to an end when the Hokies of Virginia Tech and the Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech made history by playing the first ever over time game in Lane Stadium:  Virginia Tech 20 – Georgia Tech 17 in OT.
