We have made it to Week 2 of the college football season, and if the first week showed us anything, it’s that there’s plenty in store for the rest of the season.
Come back here throughout the day for the latest results, reaction and revelry from throughout the land.
It’s one thing to have talent. It’s another to deploy it in a system perfectly structured to take advantage of said talent. LSU and Alabama certainly did that during their national title runs in 2019 and 2020, respectively, but Ohio State, with head coach Ryan Day and offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson, has mastered the art as well. And with about 17 blue-chip quarterbacks on the roster, all with the ability to throw strong passes from sideline to sideline, the Buckeyes will have one of the most perfect offensive structures known to man.
Despite allowing 31 points and 408 yards to Minnesota last week, and despite sending a first-time starting quarterback out to run the show, the Buckeyes’ talent and structure drove them to a two-touchdown win. Read more from Bill Connelly’s Week 1 preview (ESPN+)
We’ve got an early rivalry game for us in Week 2 of the season between Utah and BYU. And former Utah QB Tyler Huntley reminded us of some rather tame comments about BYU — well, as tame as it gets for a rivalry.

NIL deal of the week
With so many unique NIL deals as of late, it’s hard to pick and choose the best ones, but this one that Marquan McCall signed is actually amazing.
Central to UK’s success this season is our Offensive & Defensive Lines.

Can always count on Oregon to have some cool threads, and what better game to have these uniforms for, than against Ohio State?

Now, these are real nice. If ASU says it’s OK to stare, then look at this shine (insert eyes emoji).

There’s the prep that you do on the field, and then that sort of mental prep that sometimes needs some spicing up.
