College Football Results, Winners and Losers in Week 1: Alabama Upgrades at QB, Texas Stumble Again



The 2018 season is officially back. Games were played. There were winners. There were losers.

So guess what, what's left?

Week 1 may not be over yet – college football is on Sunday and Monday – but nearly all opening games are in the books. From the dominating performances of Alabama and Oklahoma to another disappointing start for Texas and UCLA, there are a lot of storylines.

In that sense, it's time to step back and digest everything that has gone through the first three days of week 1.

Winner

Alabama: Imagine what Ferris Bueller must have felt when he was driving in 1

961 at the wheel of Cameron's father Ferrari 250 GT California. So I think that Alabama coach Nick Saban felt when he realized that he could use a quarterback like Tua Tagovailoa. Prior to last season, Saban had already won five national championships (four with Alabama), mainly because he recruited enough blue-chip players to do these runs each year. At this time, however, he has won these titles without a true difference maker in the quarterback. No longer. Tagovailoa launched Saturday's 51-14 win over Louisville and is undoubtedly the type for Alabama's offensive. He can do everything that Jalen Hurts can do as a runner and a passer-by, and then a lot more. He and recipient DeVonta Smith could be the most exciting TV in the SEC. So think Alabama was chubby-sanking opponents anyway. Now it will be a hell of a lot to see more fun when they do it.

Notre Dame Quarterback Brandon Wimbush: The progression Wimbush made as the last-season passers-by until Saturday night kicked off Michigan, day and night. Wimbush has always been a great runner, but his move to throw down the ball should take the Irish offense to a whole new level. His numbers (12 of 22, 170 yards, TD, INT) do not do justice to his performance. His ability to dodge the pressure of Michigan, which was frequent, keep his frame and eyes lewd, and deliver a more precise punch was issued. He had help from Wideouts courtesy of some spectacular catches but this was a positive step forward in a 24-17 Irish win .

Appalachian State Coach Scott Satterfield: The mountaineers may not have beaten Penn State in Happy Valley, and that's what Satterfield wanted more than anything else. But the loss 45-38 did one thing: It paid more attention to Satterfield and his team. A casual observer may notice that the Appalachian state was in this position 11 years ago against Michigan. And yes, App State has a brand as a giant killer. However, this was one of the least experienced teams not only in the Sun Belt, but in the country, according to Phil Steele. And they almost beat Penn State on the street. Satterfield is 37-15 and starts his fifth season in Boone. He's flown under the radar for bigger jobs, but he'll look harder now. Whether he takes these opportunities or not, he deserves them.

Stanford Wide Receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside : It was Arcega-Whiteside, not Bryce Love, with Stanford in Stanford's 31-10 win over San Diego State. This is selective with stats, but Arcega-Whiteside's 11 to 6 catch-to-touchdown ratio in his last two games from last year's Alamo Bowl is strangely high. He is officially a problem. His best catch was not even one of his three points. San Diego State may have been group of five, Power Five or The Jackson 5 and it did not matter. There is virtually nothing that can be done against a human giant who can fight through any defense with 6-foot-3 and 220-pound to cling to a football. The relationship between capture and landing will go down (… or?), But if he goes on like that, he has to watch TV.

Losers

Texas coach Tom Herman: You could put the blame of Texas' loss to Maryland on offensive coordinator Tim Beck. More about this 34-29 defeat here . But does that really solve the problem? Herman would not even say with certainty, that's Beck's offense. "We'll call all games offensive," Herman told reporters this week. Herman needs the direction, and he needs it fast. He's an offensive guy after all. If all else fails, Texas should be good at it. And if that means taking over the rest of the season and making it his nuisance? Fine. If it means to fire Beck, so be it. Texas can still recover this year, but by 2019 at the earliest, it can regain its identity. This will be the third year for Herman. That's not when you create identities.

Chip Kelly's Debut: The Kelly era at UCLA is not defined by what happens in Week 1 of Year 1, but Lord in Heaven loses to Cincinnati at home 26-17 a bad one Look. Of course there are some positive things. Running Back Kazmeir Allen is a speed demon and just the guy Kelly needs to play these explosive games. The defense was good enough to win too. But Michigan Transfer Wilton Speight could not move the attack and Dorian Thompson-Robinson was not much better. There are few surefire profits on the schedule and that should be one of them. For Kelly in first grade, it could have been difficult to get to a cup, but it's clear he has a lot to do with this team.

Anyone Who Buys FAU Stocks: There were a lot of people who got a case of Kiffins this summer. Yeah, Owl coach Lane Kiffin is fun talking to him, a good sound and a smart trainer who won eleven games last season. And yes, FAU is good … but they are not good that . The three-touchdown spread that came in the game on Saturday should have been a warning sign. Vegas knows, all of you, and any food over an upset should be thrown away at a swift pace. Oklahoma hung 63 on the FAU with a boxing score that was damn perfect. In the words of Kiffin himself: "I would be shocked if, according to what I have seen today, there would be a better team in the country."

Scott Frost and the Eternal Waiting Game: Bad weather across the country was delayed, delayed, or resulted in the complete cancellation of some college football games on Saturday. No fan base was more disappointed than Nebraska, whose season opener against Akron was delayed due to lightning and bad weather. So waiting for the official return of coach Scott Frost will take even longer, as is not yet known.

Best of the rest

Auburn Defensive Lineman Nick Coe: Get ready to hear that guy's name this season. Coe had a sack, two tackles for loss and a forced fumble in Auburn's 21-16 win over Washington in Atlanta. The Tigers defense was dazzling anyway, but Coe is a man among the guys out there.

USC linebacker Porter Gustin: On Saturday we did not hear much about USC. The Trojans needed a late wave to beat UNLV 43-21. This is not ideal, but to get Gustin back only two weeks after being operated on a month ago. Gustin ended the game with three tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery. These are good values ​​for yourself, not to mention injuries.

This magic from Toledo: The Rockets had no problem with VMI and won 66-3. Of course, this is an easy task when the magician David Blaine steals your stunts and reappears in the end zone with the ball for a touchdown.

Texas Tech Wide receiver T.J. Vasher: Honestly, there were so many insane catches in the first week that it was impossible to keep track of everyone. Listing them all here would probably be a bad service for those who are not getting the same attention. But if I picked a weekend-catch that stood out above the rest, then it was that one-handed grip from Vasher in Texas Tech's loss to Ole Miss. The expansion is stunning.

Purdue Broad Receiver Rondale Moore: Speaking of the receiver, Moore was the early candidate for Player of the Week with a school record of 313 all-purpose yards against Northwestern in a 31-27 loss. However, you may remember the freshman sensation as a viral offseason workout warrior who squats 600 pounds . That's more than three times his 174 pounds of body weight. He is like an ant carrying a grape or something.

Kansas State: Do not be Distracted From Kansas 26-23 FC Nicholls from the fact that Kansas State needed a big comeback to avoid heading south Dakota cough. The wildcats were close, 27-24.

Quick Hits

  • Another nugget from the San Diego State game: The Aztecs found their next bell cow in Juwan Washington. The junior had 158 yards and a score against the cardinal and put the love on the other side.
  • Army quarterback Kelvin Hopkins Jr. went 10-of-21 passing for 197 yards in Friday's 34-14 loss to Duke. Army only tried 65 passes all the last year for 361 yards. In a game, the army is already over half the last season over and has about a third of the attempts.
  • Will Grier's Heisman campaign in West Virginia began well against Tennessee. Grier had one of the simplest 429-yard, five-touchdown days a person could have in a easy 40-14 win .
  • Do you remember Cayllin Newton? Camer's younger brother, who was the star of Howard's excitement over UNLV last season (the biggest surprise in Vegas history)? He had 439 yards passing and three touchdowns in Howard's 38-32 loss to Ohio.
  • From the "Holy Cow, Man" section, here's the weak statement of the weekend courtesy of Tulane's offense in an overtime loss of 23-17 against Wake Forest: seven – seven – kicks in plus . After a double check (and then incredulous triple checking), Tulane tested seven times from Wake Forest, five times in the first half alone.
  • The State of Utah State 38-31 through No. 11 Michigan State was just the last of many compelling but ultimately fruitless results against Power Five Opposition. The Aggies, who look back on the year 2010 had five such opponents on the ropes at the beginning of the season. And, still, all losses. Brutally. This could be the worst case of #onbrand.
  • Maryland wideout Jeshaun Jones became the first freshman FBS with a touchdown that has been rushed, received and passed on in the same game since Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota in 2012.
