Both Arkansas and Arkansas State opened the football season with blowout wins against overmatched opponents. While the big wins may have made the home fans happy, its tough to get too excited, considering they were playing the weakest teams, by far, on their schedules.
Hawaii scored with just over a minute to play to pull out a win against Central Arkansas. I’m not sure how many games Hawaii will win this year, but it still would have been a very big win for the Bears if they could have pulled it off.
Monday night’s Miami-Florida State game was a great example of why I love college football.
The game featured lots of offense, with the lead changing hands seemingly on each possession of the second half. Miami took a four-point lead with just under two minutes to play in the game. Florida State drove to the two-yard line before a pass into the end zone fell incomplete on the game’s final play.
Thoughts on this weekend:
ASU travels to No. 22 Nebraska on Saturday. I’m not predicting an upset, but the Red Wolves should fare better than Florida Atlantic, also from the Sun Belt Conference, who lost 49-3 at Lincoln on Saturday.
Arkansas has the week off, before hosting Georgia on Sept. 19. That game should give a better indication of how much the Hogs have improved this year over last.
