1

Clemson 1-0 W:Furman 48-7 1

Is that the sound of Trevor Lawrence banging on the door of the starting quarterback job at Clemson?

2

Alabama 1-0 W:Louisville 51-14 2

Good to see Nick Saban apologize for his sideline QB rant. You don;t have to be an offensive wizard to see who operates this team more efficiently.

3

Wisconsin 1-0 W:Western Kentucky 34-3 3

The Jonathan Taylor Heisman campaign is underway.

4

Georgia 1-0 W:Austin Peay 45-0 4

Georgia completed 21 pases to 11 different receivers, that's spreading the ball around.

5

Ohio State 1-0 W:Oregon State 77-31 5

Dwayne Haskins handled his first start beautifully at quarterback for the Buckeyes.

6

Auburn 1-0 W:#6 Washington 21-16 8

As good as Jarrett Stidham was for Auburn the tip of the cap goes to the defense of Auburn which clearly outplayed Washington.

7

Oklahoma 1-0 W:#18 Florida Atlantic 63-14 9

Oklahoma made that look like a walk in the park against a talented Florida Atlantic squad.

8

Virginia Tech 1-0 W:#21 Florida State 24-3 10

Florida State actually outgained Virginia Tech but the key stat was the 4 Florida State turnovers as opposed to the 0 for Virginia Tech.
