College Football 2016: Week 1 Recap
Saturday, 2016 September 10 - 11:24 am
Michigan and N.C. State won handily.

Michigan 63, Hawaii 3
Not much to say about this game, except the Michigan defense was just as advertised against an overmatched opponent. Wilton Speight got the start and promptly threw an interception on the first play, but settled back down and led the team to a 97-yard touchdown drive on the subsequent possession. He'll be fine.

N.C. State 48, William and Mary 14
Yes, it was William and Mary, but NCSU looked fairly well put-together offensively, answering a number of pre-season question marks. Ryan Finley looked poised and impressive... it helps that he rarely found himself under pressure, thanks to some pretty good offensive line play.

Notable Games
#3 Oklahoma lost to #15 Houston 33-23. Houston looks pretty impressive, and coach Tom Herman will be a hot commodity when hiring season rolls around.

#5 LSU lost to Wisconsin. LSU's offensive looked typically unimaginative and predictable. Wisconsin's young defense seemed legitimate. This headlined a fairly bad week for the SEC.

Except, #1 Alabama absolutely crushed #20 USC, 52-6. USC may have well have been an FCS school. Hard to say if Alabama is really that good or if USC was just exorbitantly overrated, but geez.

Meanwhile #2 Clemson looked sluggish on offense against Auburn, but managed to win 19-13.

Texas beat #10 Notre Dame in a wild overtime game, 50-47. Notre Dame showed some inexperience in this game.

Texas A&M beat #16 UCLA in overtime, 31-24.

#4 Florida State beat #11 Ole Miss 45-34. Ole Miss definitively won the first half, but Florida State stormed back in the second half. It might be like that all year for a young Florida State team.

#12 Michigan State looked pretty unimpressive in a win against Furman, winning 28-13. From the parts I watched, MSU's left tackle seemed to have a lot of issues targeting the right player to block... should be an interesting matchup to watch when Michigan comes calling.

Penn State looked pretty bad against Kent State as well, but managed to win 33-13.

#9 Tennessee was losing for a good while against Appalachian State before finally winning in overtime, 20-13.

Northwestern lost to Western Michigan 22-21.
