With just one match up between ranked teams last week, we still got a mountain of awesome plays and moments from Week 1 of College Football. We got a little bit of everything that makes the sport the best and most entertaining the world has to offer. If you haven’t given it the chance to prove that to you yet, let me break down what it supplied in just week 1. It’s everything you didn’t know you needed.

The NFL doesn’t give you that much entertainment in an entire season. Can’t wait for week 2.
PS – Take Boise State -10.5 against Marshall at home. You’re welcome.
