Alabama might score 100 against Ole Miss

Seriously, it might. We’re not even 10 minutes into the game yet and the Tide already has a 28-7 lead on the Rebels. Tua Tagovailoa has two touchdown passes, including this one.

It’s not fair that Alabama has a QB now too.

Arkansas’ non-conference nightmare continues

Last week, the Razorbacks blew an 18-point lead over Colorado State and lost 34-27. Well, the Hogs won’t blow a lead this week because they haven’t had one. North Texas is taking it to the Hogs, leading 37-10 in the fourth quarter.

Notre Dame holds off Vanderbilt

Notre Dame sure is making a habit of winning close games early in the season. They began the year with a seven-point win over Michigan, beat Ball State by eight last week and hung on to beat Vanderbilt 22-17 on Saturday. Vanderbilt will probably look back at this play and wonder what could have been.

Troy gets another Power Five win

Last season, Troy shocked the world when it went to Baton Rouge and beat LSU. This year, the Trojans added the Nebraska Cornhuskers to their list of Power Five conquests. Troy beat Nebraska 24-19 on Saturday thanks to turnovers and special teams. Nebraska turned the ball over three times, including an interception on its final possession of the game after getting the ball back down only five points. Troy had a 17-0 lead at halftime and spent the second half clinging to that lead with everything it had — and it paid off. Neal Brown is going to be a hot commodity on the coaching market this winter.

Boise State’s top corner is out vs. Oklahoma State

Boise State will take on Oklahoma State in Stillwater without one of its top defenders. Cornerback Tyler Horton is out with an undisclosed injury he sustained against UConn in Week 2. Horton led the Broncos with 11 passes broken up and was an All-Mountain West selection. 

Kansas is a football school now

Last week, Kansas ended a 46-game road losing streak when it beat Central Michigan. This week, the Jayhawks beat up on Rutgers at home. Kansas destroyed the Scarlet Knights 55-14, thanks in large part to two pick-sixes from its defense. Basketball season might have to wait a bit longer in Lawrence.

Temple honors Jordan McNair for Maryland game

This’ll probably — for good reason — be a reoccurring theme throughout the season. Temple announced on its Twitter account this morning that it will sport a No. 79 decal to honor Maryland offensive lineman Jordan McNair, who passed away this summer during a strenuous workout session. Maryland has already been doing this, but it’s nice to see other programs get in on it, too.
