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.
Nobody expected UT-Martin to pose a threat to Ole Miss in Saturday’s season opener in Oxford, and the Rebels won convincingly 76-3. Few also expected an early season blowout victory over an FCS opponent to make a defensive player a factor in the Heisman Trophy race. But, Robert Nkemdiche may have done exactly that.
First-year Florida head coach Jim McElwain couldn’t have scripted a better debut in The Swamp. The Gators routed New Mexico State 61-13 Saturday night, scoring the most points by a new Gators coach in his first game.
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.
Bowling Green defensive lineman Mike Minns had a little problem during Saturday’s game against Tennessee. With the Volunteers up 14-3 in the first quarter and driving for another score, Minns lost his shoe on first down and had to fake an injury to get a timeout.
Needless to say, this has to be one of the more humorous moments of Week 1, as Minns had to use a little acting to get the timeout. And as the video shows, Tennessee coach Butch Jones didn’t appear to be too happy.
