It was another great weekend of early-season college football with some notable upsets and Heisman contenders continuing to build their résumés.
Stanford lost to USC, Clemson proved they deserve their top ranking, UCLA starts 0-2 again, Nebraska’s loss to Colorado lowers expectations for the second year of the Scott Frost era, and Tennessee… well, let’s just say that UT Chattanooga has to feel better than they usually would about going into Neyland Stadium to face the Vols.
Losses took some of the shine off of Texas and Texas A&M, both of which were riding buzz last week. In fact, in the Kickoff Top 25 Texas dropped from #8 to #17 and Texas A&M fell from #13 last week to #22 this week. The AP Poll dropped Texas from #9 to #12, Texas A&M from #12 to #16.
