Interesting starting Saturday to the college season. Not as exciting overall as I would have liked, but a couple of fun moments.
Navy gave Ohio State a scare. I was rooting for Navy to make that 2 pointer, but I wasn't really expecting them to pull off the win.
Oklahoma's Heisman winner got knocked out with an injury in the second quarter, which paved the way for BYU to upset them. That ended up being the only upset of a ranked team.
Alabama predictably beat up on Virginia Tech, in a game whose score was closer than it should have been.
My Georgia Tech team had the expected easy victory over Jacksonville State, so I'm satisfied there.
Elsewhere in the ACC, Duke and Virginia held a competition to see who could come up with the most embarrassing loss. The Colonial Conference (???) is now 2-0 over the ACC this year.
Remind me again why certain conferences get automatic BCS bowl bids? Obviously, I'll be happy if one of my two schools (both ACC) wins the conference and gets one of those big bowls. But I really don't see why conference should be a determining factor when some of them have bad years where they obviously don't deserve it, like the Big East and ACC in recent years.
