Week 1 of the 2015 college football season came and went without a whole lot of surprises. Don't get me wrong, there was some good football played. Then again, if you're like me, any football is good football.
New quarterbacks were under the spotlight in the first week of the 2015 college football season. UCLA’s Josh Rosen stole the spotlight with 351 yards against Virginia, as the true freshman garnered one of the top performances by a quarterback in Week 1.
The first week of every college football season always generates overreaction on both sides of the talking point. If a team lost by a bigger margin than expected or struggled, it’s easy to say that team is worse than anticipated.
Week 2 of the 2015 college football season kicks off on Thursday night with WKU hosting Louisiana Tech in a potential preview of the Conference USA Championship in December. The slate continues on Friday with Utah hosting Utah State and Miami traveling to FAU.
LOS ANGELES – In the same tunnel leading from the locker rooms to the Coliseum playing turf, Cam Smith strolls out in a fresh pair of Air Jordan XI. His black-and-red shoes walk on the same path where, four hours earlier, he carried onto the field the legacy of Trojans before him.
Numbers and statistics are a huge part of college football. Every Sunday, reading updated box scores and stats is like Christmas for fans and media members. Some stats like total offense and total defense are overrated, but each help paint a picture for a team or particular game.
Vernon Adams made offseason headlines after deciding to transfer from Eastern Washington to Oregon. While a move from the FCS to FBS ranks is rare, Adams certainly has the talent to be an All-Pac-12 quarterback this season.
But there was a little awkwardness to the season opener, as Adams took on his former team. And there was a scary moment for the senior quarterback, as Adams was leveled on a late hit in the second half.
While it’s tough to judge intent, this certainly looks like a cheap shot against Adams by a former teammate.
