New little blog series to pregame our Football House College Football Show. Quick hitters and thoughts from each week, focusing mainly on the Top-25. Not sure how the format is going to be going forward, but for now, the one bullet quick hitters is the way I am feeling. Without further ado, the week one recap.
Coach Prime and Colorado made a statement. Shedeur Sanders tossed for over 500 yards and four touchdowns, and looked like a first round pick. Travis Hunter played every snap and was dominant on both sides. They have two special talents and we need to appreciate every moment. People were hating on the Deion's emotions after the fact, and those people can pound sand. They were doubted and they put everyone on notice. Hold that L. However, TCU was the first test, but can they get it done against ranked Pac-12 members in Oregon and USC this month?
Now that Sanders and Hunter are on Heisman watch, we still have to pay attention to the incumbent. Caleb Williams is still the big man of the Pac-12, and he shined in this week's matchup against Nevada. He threw for a casual 319 with 5 touchdowns on 75% passing. He still seems the most NFL ready, but there is obviously plenty of football to be had.
The BigTen is in the hands of Michigan and Ohio State, but Penn State is making it known that they are here and ready to fight. The Drew Allar era is underway, the quarterback just shined in his debut against WVU. Three touchdowns and over three hundred yards. Also, side note with the Nittany Lions, they 100% knew the spread was on the line. With a commanding lead, Penn State scored with 6 seconds left to cover 20.5. Coincidence? I think not.
Alabama continues to have a dominant quarterback. Enter Jalen Milroe, who proceeds Bryce Young, and comes out looking sharp. Nevermind the opponent, Milroe still had three touchdowns through the air and two on the ground.
Were we bullish on Florida, LSU, and Clemson? Tough weekend for the South and their respective conferences. Utah took care of the Gators, Brian Kelley provided us nothing against Florida State, and Deebo just lost to Duke. Yikes all around, especially for potential CFB playoff rankings.
