Pass me an oxygen tank -- and a pillow. Fake Nike Air Max 97 .After the greatest opening weekend in college football history, I need a vacation from my vacation. Labor Day turned out to be pretty laborious for The Eliminator.Following four days of incredible upsets, thrilling finishes, memorable debuts and more than a handful of epic comebacks, I need a week to catch my breath and get some rest. On paper, Week 2 doesnt figure to be as unpredictable. But isnt that what we always say about the weekends that end up being the craziest?The opening weekend wasnt nearly as enjoyable for a handful of teams from the Power 5 conferences. Washington State, Iowa State and Virginia all fell to FCS foes.?It also wasnt a strong opening weekend for the SEC - considered by many to be the sports best conference. SEC teams lost to opponents from Conference USA and the Sun Belt, and SEC East favorite Tennessee needed overtime to beat Appalachian State. Overall, SEC teams went 7-7 in their openers.SEC members Kentucky and Mississippi State were among the 29 teams eliminated from consideration for the College Football Playoff by The Eliminator, which is narrowing the 128-team FBS field to the four spots for the playoff.Heres where the FBS stands after Week 1:Jump to Sections: Whos In | Still In Contention | On The Fence | Better Luck Next SeasonWhos inIf the opening weekend is any indication, its going to be a wild race for the College Football Playoff. Seven ranked teams lost in the first week -- the most to fall in their openers in AP Top 25 history. Defending national champion Alabama was among the few teams that actually looked dominant in its opener. The Crimson Tide blasted USC 52-6 in Arlington, Texas, which was the Trojans worst opening loss in program history. As a result, the Crimson Tide get the No. 1 seed. Florida State earned the No. 2 seed after rallying from a 22-point deficit to beat Ole Miss 45-34 in Orlando, Florida, on Monday night. It was the largest comeback in FSU history. Ohio State is the No. 3 seed after blasting Bowling Green 77-10. I could have easily gone with Michigan, which routed Hawaii 63-3 in its opener, but Ill give the edge to the Buckeyes because of quarterback J.T. Barrett. Finally, Houston is the No. 4 seed after upsetting Oklahoma 33-23 on Saturday. The Cougars looked as good as anybody in the opening week.Still in contentionAlabama Crimson Tide Trending: UPThe Lane Kiffin Revenge Tour continued with a 52-6 trouncing of USC. The best part for Alabamas offensive coordinator: He beat the Trojans with freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts after persuading head coach Nick Saban to let him play.Baylor Bears Trending: EVENBears quarterback Seth Russell returned from a neck injury with aplomb, throwing for 163 yards and four touchdowns in less than a half in a 55-7 win over FCS member Northwestern State on Friday night.Clemson Tigers Trending: EVENClemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables said he watched YouTube videos to figure out how to slow down Auburns Wing-T offense. He needed a Twister board to figure out Auburns quarterback rotation.Florida State Seminoles Trending: UPThe Comeback Kings pulled off another miracle on Monday night against Ole Miss, rallying from a 22-point deficit to stun the Rebels 45-34. Since 2013, the Seminoles are 6-1 in games in which they trailed by at least seven points at the half.Georgia Bulldogs Trending: EVENIts a medical miracle that 1980 Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker was able to donate knee ligaments to both Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb.Houston Cougars Trending: UPGamblers must love Houston coach Tom Herman. During his tenure, the Cougars have been an underdog four times. Theyve won each time -- the past three by double digits, including Saturdays 33-23 stunner over Oklahoma.Iowa Hawkeyes Trending: EVENThe Hawkeyes rushed for five touchdowns in a 45-21 win over Miami (Ohio), their fifth game with five or more rushing scores since the start of last season.Louisville Cardinals Trending: UPThe Cardinals play at Syracuse on Friday night, their last test before a Sept. 17 showdown against Florida State. As ESPNs Brent Musburger reminded us all this past weekend, Bobby Petrino is a really good coach.Michigan Wolverines Trending: UPMichigans 60-point win over Hawaii was its largest in an opener since the value of a touchdown was changed to six points in 1912. The last time the Wolverines won an opener by a more lopsided score was a 65-0 victory over Ohio Wesleyan in 1905.Michigan State Spartans Trending: DOWNThe Spartans are lucky people were still talking on Friday night about how bad Tennessee looked the night before. Michigan State didnt look much better in an ugly 28-13 victory over FCS member Furman.Ohio State Buckeyes Trending: UPIs Urban Meyer competing with Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh to see whose team can score the most points every Saturday? The Buckeyes racked up 77 points against Bowling Green in their opener, their highest scoring total since putting up 83 against Iowa in 1950.Oklahoma State Cowboys Trending: EVENBillionaire OSU booster T. Boone Pickens didnt exactly give coach Mike Gundy a ringing endorsement before a 61-7 win over FCS foe Southeastern Louisiana in Saturdays opener. Pickens told reporters: I would like to beat OU. Mike has struggled with that game. I think hes 2-9, so were not competitive with OU. Best of luck this season, Coach Gundy.Stanford Cardinal Trending: EVENCardinal coach David Shaw?might have been the only one not impressed by star Christian McCaffreys 97-yard punt return for a touchdown, which was erased by a penalty in Friday nights 26-13 win over Kansas State. Theres a reason why there are no 97-yard punt returns, because you should not catch the ball at the 3-yard line, Shaw said. [McCaffrey] knows that.Texas Longhorns Trending: UPWe knew Texas would be running a version of Baylors offense this season after hiring Art Briles disciple Sterlin Gilbert as its offensive coordinator. Hopefully, the Longhorns wont keep playing like the Bears on defense, too.Texas A&M Aggies Trending: UPTexas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin might be on the hot seat this season, but Saturdays 31-24 upset of UCLA in overtime was his 10th win over an AP Top-25 team, which tied him with Jackie Sherrill for second in school history. Only R.C. Slocum (17) beat more ranked foes as the Aggies coach.Washington Huskies Trending: EVENWelcome back, Huskies wide receiver John Ross. After missing all of the 2015 season with a knee injury, Ross caught 5 passes for 90 yards and 2 touchdowns; he also scored on a 92-yard kickoff return in a 48-13 rout of Rutgers.Wisconsin Badgers Trending: UPAfter stunning No. 5 LSU 16-14 at Lambeau Field on Saturday, the Badgers have earned their place among the early playoff contenders. They wont face an easy road, however. After hosting Akron and Georgia State, Wisconsin opens Big Ten play against Michigan State (road), Michigan (road), Ohio State (home) and Iowa (road).On the fenceAir Force Falcons Trending: EVENThe Falcons beat FCS foe 37-21 in their opener -- one of three victories by the service academies. This is just the second time in the 21st century they each started 1-0 (2013 was the other).Akron Zips Trending: EVENCongrats, Zips. Its a little early to crown you MAC East champions, but you were the only team in the division not to lose its opener.Arizona Wildcats Trending: DOWNArizona coach Rich Rodriguez said he nearly pulled quarterback Anu Solomon from the Wildcats 18-16 loss to BYU. Well see whether Solomon, who threw two interceptions and was sacked four times, or sophomore Brandon Dawkins starts this week against Grambling.Arizona State Sun Devils Trending: EVENThe Sun Devils allowed 369 passing yards in a 44-13 win over FCS foe Northern Arizona. Thats not a good sign with Texas Tech coming to town on Saturday.Arkansas Razorbacks Trending: DOWNThe Hogs only had 297 yards of offense in a 21-20 win over Louisiana Tech. The good news: Louisiana Techs defense might be better than TCUs.Army Black Knights Trending: UPThe Black Knights triple-option offense piled up 329 rushing yards against Temple, which led the AAC in total defense in 2015.Auburn Tigers Trending: DOWNYeah, Auburns offense is an absolute mess and seems to have no direction. But the Tigers are stout on defense, which might have to score to win games.Ball State Cardinals Trending: EVENAfter beating Georgia State 31-21 on the road in their opener, the Cardinals play at Indiana on Saturday. Ball State hasnt beaten a Power 5 opponent since knocking off Virginia in 2013.Boise State Broncos Trending: EVENThe Broncos won 45-10 at Louisiana-Lafayette, their first true road win in an opener since 2000.Boston College Eagles Trending: DOWNThe Eagles opened the season against Georgia Tech in Dublin, Ireland, where their ACC losing streak reached nine straight games after a 17-14 loss.BYU Cougars Trending: UPWelcome back, BYU quarterback Taysom Hill, who passed for 202 yards with one touchdown against Arizona. Hill missed most of last season with a foot injury.California Golden Bears Trending: EVENAfter beating Hawaii by 20 points in Australia more than two weeks ago, the Bears road is about to get difficult. They play at San Diego State on Saturday, then host Texas and play at Arizona State.Cincinnati Bearcats Trending: DOWNThe Bearcats trailed FCS member Tennessee-Martin 7-6 at halftime of their opener before pulling away for a 28-7 victory. Im sure that left a great impression on the Big 12.Central Michigan Chippewas Trending: EVENThe Chippewas defeated Presbyterian 49-3 in their opener. It figures to be a little more difficult in Saturdays trip to Oklahoma State.Colorado Buffaloes Trending: UPOur preseason projections might have missed the mark on the Buffaloes, who looked absolutely dominant in their 44-7 rout of Colorado State. Well know more by the end of the month -- after the Buffaloes have played at Michigan and Oregon.Connecticut Huskies Trending: DOWNThe Huskies needed 10 fourth-quarter points to escape with a 24-21 win over FCS foe Maine on Thursday night.Duke Blue Devils Trending: EVENThe Blue Devils overcame five fumbles in a 49-6 win over FCS member North Carolina Central on Saturday.East Carolina Pirates Trending: EVENEast rules! Minnesota transfer Phillip Nelson threw for five touchdowns and ran for another in a 52-7 rout of FCS member Western Carolina in ECU coach Scottie Montgomerys debut.Eastern Michigan Eagles Trending: EVENIm sure glad I turned over the Bottom 10 to ESPN colleague Ryan McGee. All three Michigan directional schools are 1-0; the Eagles defeated FCS foe Missouri Valley State 61-14 in their opener.Florida Gators Trending: DOWNYou dont honor the Head Ball Coach by scoring 10 points in the first three quarters against UMass. You preserve that clunker for when Charlie Weis comes back to town.Florida Atlantic Owls Trending: EVENI wonder if Florida fans will cheer for Owls quarterback Jason Driskel (Jeffs brother) to upset Miami this week.Georgia Southern Eagles Trending: EVENThe Eagles opened the Tyson Summers era by rushing for 420 yards in a 54-0 rout of FCS member Savannah State.Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Trending: EVENGeorgia Techs 17-14 win over Boston College in Dublin was the first time the Yellow Jackets played outside the U.S. in the 124-year history of the program. They play FCS foe Mercer for the first time on Saturday.Idaho Vandals Trending: DOWNThe Vandals held off a late charge from FCS foe Montana State to win 20-17 in their opener. Their next two games are at Washington and Washington State.Illinois Fighting Illini Trending: EVENLovie Ball! Led by coach Lovie Smith, the Illini piled up 515 yards of offense, didnt commit a turnover and gave up minus-10 rushing yards in a 52-3 win over Michigan, err, Murray State on Saturday.Indiana Hoosiers Trending: EVENDont look now, but Indianas defense might be showing a pulse. The Hoosiers allowed only 63 rushing yards and returned two interceptions for touchdowns in a 34-13 win over FIU.Kansas Jayhawks Trending: UPKansas students stormed the field after beating FCS member Rhode Island 55-6 on Saturday. Come on, act like you ... oh, nevermind.Kansas State Wildcats Trending: EVENKansas States defense did an admirable job against Stanford, but its offense was a mess. The Wildcats allowed 8 sacks,1 safety and had 2 turnovers in a 26-13 loss.Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks Trending: EVENAfter leading FCS foe Southern by only two points at halftime of a 38-21 win, the Warhawks bragged on Twitter about being the only FBS team in Louisiana to win its opener. Hey, whatever works you.LSU Tigers Trending: DOWNYeah, its probably not a good thing for coach Les Miles when fans have started GoFundMe accounts to buy out the remainder of his contract -- after one loss.Marshall Thundering Herd Trending: EVENMarshall opens the season against FCS foe Morgan State on Saturday.Maryland Terrapins Trending: EVENThe Terrapins beat FCS foe Howard 52-13 in coach D.J. Durkins debut. If they play well the next three games, against FIU (road), UCF (road) and Purdue (home), they might be a surprise team.Memphis Tigers Trending: EVENDont worry, Tigers fans: You can hang your Big 12 flag right next to the Final Four banner from the John Calipari era.Miami Hurricanes Trending: UPMark Richt moved from Georgia to Miami and became Evil Mark Richt. The Hurricanes scored 42 points in the third quarter of a 70-3 rout of FCS foe Florida A&M.Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders Trending: EVENVanderbilt might want to be on upset alert this week. The Blue Raiders beat FCS foe Alabama A&M 55-0 in their opener, allowing only 146 yards of offense and six first downs.Minnesota Golden Gophers Trending: DOWNMinnesotas defense needed a last-minute stand to escape with a 30-23 win over Oregon State in its opener.Missouri Tigers Trending: DOWNQuarterback Drew Lock attempted 51 passes, but the Tigers scored only one touchdown in a 26-11 loss at West Virginia, spoiling coach Barry Odoms debut.Navy Midshipmen Trending: EVENNavys 52-16 victory over FCS foe Fordham in its opener was costly. Starting quarterback Tago Smith tore his right ACL and will miss the rest of the season.Nebraska Cornhuskers Trending: UPWell done, Mike Riley. Well done.Nevada Wolf Pack Trending: EVENIt wasnt a promising start for the Wolf Pack, who were outgained in total yards 445-363 by FCS foe Cal Poly in their 30-27 win in overtime.New Mexico Lobos Trending: EVENThe Lobos piled up 615 yards of offense in a 48-21 rout of FCS foe South Dakota going into this weeks showdown against in-state rival New Mexico State.North Carolina Tar Heels Trending: DOWNDont worry, Tar Heels. Youre not the only team thats going to have problems tackling Nick Chubb this season.NC State Wolfpack Trending: EVENBoise State graduate transfer Ryan Finley looked pretty solid in his first start for the Wolfpack, throwing for 174 yards with 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions in a 48-14 win over FCS member William & Mary.Notre Dame Fighting Irish Trending: DOWNLook on the bright side, Fighting Irish fans. At least your team didnt mismanage the offense with three quarterbacks.Oklahoma Sooners Trending: DOWNTalk about an alarming trend: Saturdays loss to Houston was the seventh time since 2011 that the Sooners lost a game in which ESPNs FPI gave them at least an 80 percent chance to win -- two more than any other FBS team in that span.Old Dominion Monarchs Trending: EVENBecause of Hurricane Hermine, the Monarchs had to wait an extra day to beat FCS foe Hampton 54-21. Im sure Appalachian State will be understanding when it hosts ODU on Saturday.Ole Miss Rebels Trending: EVENThe Rebels will have a hard time bouncing back from their collapse against FSU, and it wont be any easier without starting cornerback Ken Webster and running back Eric Swinney, who both suffered knee injuries in the game.Oregon Ducks Trending: EVENThe Ducks latest quarterback transfer, Dakota Prukop, looked good in a 53-28 win over FCS opponent UC-Davis in their opener. If only Oregon could bring in a few transfer defenders. New defensive coordinator Brady Hoke isnt going to work a miracle overnight.Oregon State Beavers Trending: UPHold your heads up, Beavers. You put up a heck of a fight at Minnesota. Utah State transfer Darell Garretson looks like the answer at quarterback.Penn State Nittany Lions Trending: EVENIf I were Penn State coach James Franklin, Id seriously consider moving kicker Joey Julius to defensive tackle.Pittsburgh Panthers Trending: EVENThe best sight from the opening weekend: Panthers running back James Conner rushing for 53 yards and one touchdown in a 28-7 win over FCS foe Villanova after beating cancer this past offseason.Purdue Boilermakers Trending: DOWNRemember Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk? He played against Purdue on Saturday, throwing two interceptions on 2-for-7 passing in the Boilermakers 45-24 win over FCS member Eastern Kentucky.Rutgers Scarlet Knights Trending: DOWNDont get used to this space, Rutgers fans. Youre only here because even I have a little bit of empathy. I have a feeling the Scarlet Knights will be gone in a couple of weeks.San Diego State Aztecs Trending: UPHeres one to watch: California plays at San Diego State on Saturday. If the Aztecs win, theyll have a great chance to run the table, although that Oct. 1 trip to South Alabama suddenly seems a lot more difficult.SMU Mustangs Trending: EVENThe Mustangs beat North Texas 34-21 in their opener and play at Baylor on Saturday. The Bears rolled up 723 yards of offense in a 56-21 win in Dallas last year.South Alabama Jaguars Trending: UPThe Jaguars beat an SEC opponent for the first time, winning 21-20 at Mississippi State. Enjoy your time as the second-best FBS team in the state.South Carolina Gamecocks Trending: EVENGet used to it, Gamecocks. This years team might remind you of your first car. It was ugly and not very efficient, but it gets the job done every once in a while.South Florida Bulls Trending: EVENSeven different Bulls players scored touchdowns in a 56-20 win over FCS foe Towson in the opener.Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles Trending: UPTalk about sweet revenge. Kentucky ran offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson out of town this past offseason, and then his new team scored 34 straight points in a 44-35 stunner over the Wildcats.Syracuse Orange Trending: EVENSyracuse quarterback Eric Dungey must love playing in new coach Dino Babers hurry-up offense. Dungey completed 34 of 40 passes for 355 yards and 2 touchdowns in a 33-7 win over Colgate.TCU Horned Frogs Trending: DOWNAfter TCUs defense surrendered 461 yards of offense in a 59-41 win over South Dakota State, Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson said Arkansas might roll up 1,000 yards and 1,000 points if it doesnt play better this week.Tennessee Volunteers Trending: DOWNThe Volunteers play Virginia Tech at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday. After last weeks effort against Appalachian State, wouldnt the Brickyard have been more appropriate?Texas San Antonio Roadrunners Trending: EVENIn former LSU assistant Frank Wilsons debut, the Roadrunners set a school record with six sacks in a 26-13 win over FCS foe Alabama State.Texas State Bobcats Trending: UPThe best finish you probably didnt see: Texas States Ishmael Davis sacked Ohios Greg Windham on a two-point conversion attempt in the third overtime of Texas States 56-54 win.Texas Tech Red Raiders Trending: EVENPatrick Mahomes watch: The Red Raiders quarterback threw for 483 yards with 6 touchdowns (4 passing, 2 rushing) in a 69-17 win over FCS foe Stephen F. Austin in the opener.Toledo Rockets Trending: EVENThe most impressive performance you probably didnt notice in Week 1: Toledo beat defending Sun Belt champion Arkansas State 31-10 on the road.Troy Trojans Trending: EVENCongrats to the real Men of Troy, who blasted FCS foe Austin Peay 57-17 in their opener.Tulsa Golden Hurricane Trending: UPAfter a 35-point win over San Jose State, the Golden Hurricane will need all the help they can get in Saturdays trip to Ohio State.UCF Knights Trending: UPCongrats to UCFs Scott Frost and Kansas David Beaty -- FBS coaches who have already exceeded their teams victory total from last season. The Knights shut out FCS foe South Carolina State 38-0 in their opener. They finished 0-12 in 2015.UCLA Bruins Trending: DOWNMore than 110,000 screaming fans are much louder than 50,000 screaming fans. Am I right, Josh Rosen?UNLV Rebels Trending: EVENNow, thats a much better start. The Rebels won their first opener since 2009 with a 63-13 victory over FCS foe Jackson State.USC Trojans Trending: DOWNThe Trojans probably wish Alabama had left Lane Kiffin at the airport.UTEP Miners Trending: EVENMeet Aaron Jones, your FBS rushing leader after Week 1. Jones ran for 249 yards and 2 touchdowns in a 38-22 win over New Mexico State.Utah Utes Trending: EVENTheres not much to take away from Utahs 24-0 win over FCS foe Southern Utah. The Utes were pretty uninspiring on offense, rushing for 138 yards on just 3.7 yards per carry.Utah State Aggies Trending: EVENAggies running back Devante Mays needed only 18 carries to total 208 yards with 3 touchdowns in a 45-6 rout of FCS member Weber State.Vanderbilt Commodores Trending: DOWNThe Commodores 13-10 loss to South Carolina was devastating in many ways. There might not be six victories -- and bowl eligibility -- left on their schedule.Virginia Tech Hokies Trending: DOWNAfter a slow start, juco transfer Jerod Evans threw for 221 yards with 4 touchdowns in a 36-13 win over FCS member Liberty on Saturday.Wake Forest Demon Deacons Trending: DOWNThe Demon Deacons totaled just 10 first downs, 96 yards passing and 79 yards rushing -- and somehow still beat Tulane 7-3 in their opener.West Virginia Mountaineers Trending: UPWest Virginias top two offensive weapons, Skyler Howard and Rushel Shell, battled a rib injury and leg cramps, respectively, but the Mountaineers were able to pull out a 26-11 win over Missouri.Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Trending: UPNew quarterback, no problem. Western Kentuckys Mike White threw for 517 yards with 3 touchdowns in a 46-14 win over Rice. The Hilltoppers ?trip to No. 1 Alabama on Saturday? Now thats a problem.Western Michigan Broncos Trending: UPRow the boat! Row the boat! The Broncos upset Northwestern 22-21 on the road on Saturday, the 11th consecutive season in which a MAC team has knocked off a Big Ten opponent.Wyoming Cowboys Trending: UPMost of you were sleeping when Wyoming pulled off one of the best endings of the weekend. Quarterback Josh Allen escaped three would-be tacklers on a wild scramble to score in the third overtime of a 40-34 victory against Northern Illinois.Better luck next seasonAppalachian State Mountaineers Trending: UPWe had tears in our eyes adding the Mountaineers to this list, after their valiant 20-13 loss at Tennessee on Thursday night. Their effort surely got Miamis attention; the Hurricanes play in Boone, North Carolina, on Sept. 17.Arkansas State Red Wolves Trending: DOWNArmond Weh-Weh scored Arkansas States only touchdown in the fourth quarter of a 31-10 loss to Toledo. Its obvious the Red Wolves still have a long weh-weh to go if theyre going to repeat as Sun Belt Conference champions.Bowling Green Falcons Trending: DOWNThe Falcons lost 77-10 at Ohio State on Saturday. Imagine what the score might have been if Urban Meyer hadnt coached there.Buffalo Bulls Trending: DOWNThe Bulls opened the season by losing 22-16 at home to FCS foe Albany, which had never defeated an FBS opponent.Charlotte 49ers Trending: DOWNWho knew Louisville coach Bobby Petrino had a heart? He sat down quarterback Lamar Jackson in the second half, after he scored eight touchdowns in the first 30 minutes of a 70-14 rout of Charlotte.Colorado State Rams Trending:?DOWNAfter a 44-7 loss to Colorado in the opener, its Bauta time for a quarterback change. CSU coach Mike Bobo might bench returning starter Nick Stevens and start Georgia graduate transfer Faton Bauta.Florida International Golden Panthers Trending: DOWNThe Panthers lost to Indiana 34-13 in their opener Thursday night. Losing to a Big Ten team must have felt like old times for FIU coach Ron Turner.Fresno State Bulldogs Trending: DOWNThe Bulldogs might have lost their opener at Nebraska, but theyre still winners in our books for declining a delay-of-game penalty on the play in which the Cornhuskers honored late punter Sam Foltz. Well done, Bulldogs.Georgia State Panthers Trending: DOWNThe Panthers obviously didnt learn anything from Georgia about wearing black jerseys. At least the Panthers looked good in a 31-21 loss to Ball State.Hawaii Rainbow Warriors Trending: DOWNThe Warriors traveled nearly 20,000 miles after losing to California 51-31 in Sydney, Australia, and then 63-3 at Michigan on Saturday. Just think about all the frequent-flier miles!Iowa State Cyclones Trending: DOWNThe Cyclones turned it over three times in the final 6:12 of a 25-20 loss to FCS foe Northern Iowa, spoiling new coach Matt Campbells debut.Kent State Golden Flashes Trending: DOWNThe Golden Flashes better enjoy their next two games against FCS foes North Carolina A&T and Monmouth. They play at No. 1 Alabama on Sept. 24.Kentucky Wildcats Trending: DOWNTrue story: After the Wildcats blew a 25-point lead and allowed 34 straight points in a 44-35 loss to Southern Miss, a fan called a Kentucky radio show and said UK coach Mark Stoops owes him $400 because he smashed his TV with a beer bottle.Louisiana Lafayette Ragin Cajuns Trending: DOWNTalk about a quick trigger. Louisiana-Lafayette coach Mark Hudseth fired defensive coordinator Melvin Smith a day after a season-opening 45-10 loss to Boise State.Louisiana Tech Bulldogs Trending: UPWe were tempted to leave the Bulldogs on the fence after their 21-20 loss at Arkansas on Saturday. Louisiana Techs defense held the Hogs to 297 yards of offense; only Alabama did that last season.Massachusetts Minutemen Trending: UPIf UMass hadnt given up two fourth-quarter touchdowns in a 24-7 loss at Florida on Saturday night, the Gators might have christened Ron Zook-Florida Field, instead of renaming it in honor of Steve Spurrier.Miami (OH) RedHawks Trending: DOWNYou might call a 24-point loss at Iowa a defeat. I call it progress for a program that won five games the past three seasons combined.Mississippi State Bulldogs Trending: DOWNWe must admit: That was a very clever tactic leaving South off of South Alabamas jerseys on Saturday. The Bulldogs lost to the Jaguars 21-20 to open what could be a long rebuilding year.New Mexico State Aggies Trending: DOWNThe Aggies lost to UTEP 38-22 in the Battle of I-10. Theyre playing New Mexico on Saturday in the Battle of I-25. Might we suggest the Battle of I-70 against Kansas so they might actually win?North Texas Mean Green Trending: DOWNAlabama graduate transfer Alec Morris threw for 229 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in new coach Seth Littrells spread offense in a 34-21 loss to SMU.Northern Illinois Huskies Trending: DOWNTalk about a nightmare opener. The Huskies game at Wyoming was delayed two hours by thunderstorms and ended about four hours later with a 40-34 loss in three overtimes.Northwestern Wildcats Trending: DOWNAt least the Wildcats dont have to play Michigan and Michigan State this season. A trifecta of losses to their northern neighbors would have been unsightly.Ohio Bobcats Trending: DOWNOhios Frank Solich, 71, was the second-oldest FBS coach entering the season, behind only 76-year-old Bill Snyder of Kansas State. We have a feeling Solich feels a little older after a 56-54 loss in three overtimes to Texas State.Rice Owls Trending: DOWNIm guessing the only reason Rice remains on the Big 12s list of potential expansion candidates is so Baylor can keep the Owls on its schedule.San Jose State Spartans Trending: DOWNMaybe that Saturday morning earthquake shook up the Spartans before their 45-10 loss at Tulsa. The Golden Hurricane scored 21 points off three San Jose State turnovers.Temple Owls Trending: DOWNThe Owls opened the 2015 season beating Penn State 27-10. They opened the 16 season losing to Army 28-13.Tulane Green Wave Trending: DOWNThe Green Wave allowed 59 yards of offense and three first downs in the second half against Wake Forest, but still walked away with a 7-3 loss.Virginia Cavaliers Trending: DOWNAs BYUs coach, Bronco Mendenhalls teams were 8-0 against FCS foes, winning every game by at least 24 points. As Virginias coach, his team is 0-1 against FCS foes, losing by an average of 17 points.Washington State Cougars Trending: DOWNMemo to Cougars coach Mike Leach: Quit scheduling FCS programs for your teams openers. For whatever reason, Washington State cant beat them. The Cougars lost to Eastern Washington 45-42 on Saturday, a year after losing to Portland State in their opener. Nike Air Max 97 Outlet . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night.
