Aside from showdown between the Clemson Tigers and the Georgia Bulldogs, it was not the most exciting of opening weeks.
Here’s a super fast recap:
Georgia defeated Clemson 10-3.
Alabama looked like, well, Alabama, in a 44-13 blowout over Miami.
Ohio State and Oklahoma actually both struggled in wins over unranked teams.
Texas A&M was dominant against Kent State.
Iowa State only beat unranked Northern Iowa by six.
Penn State took down Wisconsin in a top-25 battle.
10th ranked UNC fell to Virginia Tech.
After the first week of action, ESPN released its power rankings.
Below are the top 10 teams according to ESPN:
10. Florida Gators
9. Notre Dame
Without the threat of a consistent running game, Georgia’s defense teed off on D.J. Uiagalelei and blitzed him early and often. Clemson’s offensive line also played poorly against the Bulldogs’ deep defensive line.
