If not for a 100-yard kickoff return from Western Michigan and two garbage time touchdowns from Louisville, I would have gone a nice 4-0 last week. But almost doesn't count with your bookie. This week, the advice is to stay away from the big games. Oklahoma-Tennessee could go over, under, blowout or overtime.

By Steven Lassan, 10 months 3 weeks ago
The first week of every college football season always generates overreaction on both sides of the talking point.
