Week 3’s Saturday is underway, and below, we’ll keep track of the oddest, most surprising, and wildest stuff that happens.
Keegan Brewer hit Arkansas with the ol’ IMPLIED FAIR CATCH THAT ISN’T ACTUALLY A FAIR CATCH AT ALL:
Now, as for the day’s biggest upset so far: BYU went into Wisconsin and knocked off the No. 6 Badgers.
And then the Cougars’ turned up to UW’s beloved “Jump Around.”
No worries, though.
Another top-10 team went down shortly after, with No. 12 LSU winning The Tiger Bowl at No. 7 Auburn.
And Ed Orgeron just found a new defensive lineman:
Meanwhile, Ohio State fans in Jerry World got to watch former Buckeye Joe Burrow lead the game-winning drive for the Tigers:
College football’s Super Bowl, Rutgers-Kansas, had some glorious moments, such as …
… and …
… but ended with Kansas getting its most dominant win over an FBS team of the entire 2010s so far.
Troy got its second Power 5 win of the last two years, beating Nebraska.
The Huskers fell to 0-2 for the first time since 1957.
Since the start of the 2016 season, Troy has more Power 5 road wins than Tennessee.

FSU once again failed to #DoSomething.
And you already know Dino Babers hit ‘em with another of his VICTORY SPEECHes:
Temple whapped Maryland, meaning this is true:
And that means the Big Ten’s three newest additions lost two upsets to non-powers AND lost to Kansas.
We might have an early Piesman Trophy favorite in UAB’s 285-pound Garrett Marino.
CATCH OF THE DAY contender, by Boise State’s A.J. Richardson
On Thursday night, FCS Davidson beat Division III Guilford, 91-61.
The game appeared to set both of these records:
- Most yards of offense in an FCS game by one team (964 for Davidson; record is 876 )
- Most rushing yards by one team in an FCS game (685 for Davidson; record is 681)
And there were even more records that didn’t officially count, since Guilford is DIII:
- Most points in an FCS game by both teams (152 in this game; FCS and DI record is 141)
- Most yards of offense in an FCS game by both teams (1,662; FCS record is 1,549)
- Most rushing yards in an FCS game by both teams (1,005; FCS record is 850)
All you really need to know about Bama-Ole Miss: we quit liveblogging it after 11 minutes.
This is the Alabama vs. Ole Miss live blog. We stopped updating it with 4:40 remaining in the first quarter, for obvious reasons. Will return to it if Ole Miss gets back within two TDs https://t.co/Fo4Yoik8uP
