Over 350 yards of offense with 3 touchdowns and 0 turnovers. This is how Marcus Mariota and the Ducks get it done.

2

Florida State

2-0

W: The Citadel 37-12

2

Still don't seem to be playing as well as last year  but they still have a 0 in the loss column.  

3

Oklahoma

2-0

W: Tulsa 52-7

3

Tune up with Tennessee before starting Big 12 play.

4

Alabama

2-0

W: Florida Atlantic 41-0

5

Two quarterback system looking good for now.

5

Auburn

2-0

W: San Jose State 59-13

7

 Through two games Auburn is averaging 6.9 YPC as a team.

6

Georgia

Idle

6

Bye week before hitting the road against a banged up South Carolina team.

7

USC

2-0

W: #8 Stanford 13-10

13

Tight win against Stanford. We heard all about the offense but USC has some defensive stars as well and it showed Saturday.

8

LSU

2-0

W: Sam Houston State 56-0

9

Travin Dural with 3 touchdown catches. LSU has been looking for a receiver to step up.

9

Virginia Tech

2-0

W: #4 Ohio State 35-21

23

Been awhile since we have seen the Hokies in the Top 10...welcome back boys, you earned it.

10

Stanford

1-1

L: #13 USC 10-13

8

Tough loss, this is still a top 10 team.

11

Michigan State

1-1

L: #1 Oregon 27-46

10

It was a bad day for the Big Ten all around. Michigan State is not accustomed to giving up this many points in a game.

12

Baylor

2-0

W: Northwestern State 70-6

11

438 yards and 5 touchdowns passing for...wait...that isn't Bryce Petty.

13

Texas A&M

2-0

W: Lamar 73-3

15

29 completions against Lamar to 11 different receivers and nobody had more than 4 catches, that is spreading the ball around.

14

Ohio State

1-1

L: #23 Virginia Tech 21-35

4

Yes, you lost Braxton Miller but you still have to beat Virginia Tech at home.

15

UCLA

2-0

W: Memphis 42-35

12

Winning by less than 10 points against Virginia and Memphis does not give the fan base a good feeling.

16

Ole Miss

2-0

W: Vanderbilt 41-3

17

A better performance for Ole Miss but they have to start getting the ground game going.

17

Notre Dame

2-0

W: #22 Michigan 31-0

19

Notre Dame and Michigan have provided us such great games over the years. This was a whitewash.

18

Kansas State

2-0

W: Iowa State 32-28

14

Kansas State is very fortunate to be 2-0, they could easily be 0-2 right now.

19

Nebraska

2-0

W: McNeese State 31-24

16

Ameer Abdullah to the rescue.

20

South Carolina

1-1

W: #35 East Carolina 33-23

24

First three games are Texas A&M, East Carolina and Georgia. If they win next week going 2-1 in that stretch isn' that bad.

21

Duke

2-0

W: Troy 34-17

18

Two games and Duke has yet to turn the ball over.

22

Arizona State

2-0

W: New Mexico 58-23

21

D.J. Foster has been one of the most effective running backs in the nation thus far.

23

Iowa

2-0

W: Ball State 17-13

20

Had to score 14 in the 4th quarter to beat Ball State.

24

BYU

2-0

W: #31 Texas 41-7

30

BYU adds to the Texas troubles.

25

Wisconsin

1-1

W: Western Illinois 37-3

25

Wisconsin could come up smelling roses.

26

Mississippi State

2-0

W: UAB 47-34

26

Game in LSU on September 20th is looming as a huge SEC showdown.

27

Louisville

2-0

W: Murray State 66-21

28

Not enough people talk about the Louisville offensive line, it could be one of the best units in the country.

28

Washington

2-0

W: Eastern Washington 59-52

25

Ensured Eastern Washington didn't upset another PAC 12 opponent like the blow they dealt Oregon State last season.

29

Clemson

1-1

W: South Carolina State 73-7

29

10-17 on 3rd down conversions and only 1 penalty for 5 yards against South carolina State.

30

Oregon State

2-0

W: Hawaii 38-30

32

The game against Hawaii was not as close as the score would indicate.

31

Oklahoma State

1-1

W: Missouri State 40-23

33

Good to see them get a win after taking Florida State to the brink.

32

Florida

1-0

W: Eastern Michigan 65-0

34

Finally break their losing streak.

33

Pittsburgh

2-0

W: Boston College 30-20

37

Could be the surprise team of the ACC.

34

Michigan

1-1

L: #19 Notre Dame 0-31

22

Another loss like that and Brady Hoke might have to dust off his resume.

35

Missouri

2-0

W: Toledo 49-24

NR

Not exactly sneaking up on people like last season but they are still relevant.

36

East Carolina

1-1

L: #24 South Carolina 23-33

40

They lost against South Carolina but we haven't heard the last of this team.

37

Arizona

2-0

W: UTSA 26-23

36

Tough game against an underrated UTSA team.

38

Miami (Fla.)

1-1

W: Florida A&M 41-7

40

September 20th game in Lincoln against the Cornhuskers is one that you may want to circle on your calendar.

39

Minnesota

2-0

W: Middle Tennessee State 35-24

NR

We will see how running back David Cobb does on the road against a tough TCU defense.

40

Northern Illinois

2-0

W: Northwestern 23-15

NR

Apparently this team consists of more than just Jordan Lynch.

Dropped Out: Texas Western Kentucky North Carolina
