Back by popular demand, if just a bit late this week.
North Texas 34 - Texas Southern 7
A good turn around for Dan McCarney's squad as the Mean Green put up nearly 500 yds offense, most of that coming on the ground with 4 rushing touchdowns. It was against a SWAC team, but North Texas looks to be headed in the right direction.
Idaho 13 - Bowling Green 21
The Vandals got back their planned starting QB Dominique Blackman, who sat out the loss to 1-AA Eastern Washington for an unexplained reason (rumored suspension), and he had a fantastic outing, going 30-37 for 352. But problems in the red zone and an untimely Blackman INT left the Vandals winless.
Auburn 10 - Mississippi St 28
Dan Mullen finally gets an SEC West win that matters and he might have a decent quarterback as Tyler Russell was the breakout star. On the other side, Auburn doesn't appear to have a QB, because Kiehl Frazier sure isn't one.
Florida 20 - Texas A&M 17
In the more entertaining of the 2 SEC openers, the Aggies found out they have a real weapon at QB in Johnny Manziel and a defense that could easily get around the Gator's line. But trailing at halftime is still right where you want A&M and the Gators were able to claw their way back and win one for the old guard.
South Carolina 48 - East Carolina 10
The important takeaway is that without still injured starting QB Connor Shaw, the SCar offense was just fine in the hands of backup Dylan Thompson.
Alabama 35 - Western Kentucky 0
Yep, press reports of how outmatched WKU was going to be were completely inaccurate... The season ending injury to RB Jalston Fowler is cause for concern, but it's not like the Tide doesn't have other great running backs.
Ole Miss 28 - UTEP 10
Very quietly, Ole Miss has the best offense in the SEC. Maybe that's not impressive, given the competition, but it's a HUGE change from the abysmal Ole Miss of last year.
Arkansas 31 - ULM 34
I don't know what's worse for Arkansas, that they lost this game or that Tyler Wilson suffered a serious head injury.
