At the 40 second mark, just another great UCF receiver from Viera High School. Tre Nixon. 2 TDs 100+ yards. First collegiate start after redshirting and then transferring from Ole Miss.

I don't know how good Utah State is but I watched the final 5 minutes against #12 Michigan State. They were tied. Utah state driving at end for a score but got turnover. The Spartans to appear to have struggled with them. A top 25 team shouldn't struggle with a Utah State at home. But, that is just me. Michigan State has a really good receiver that made a miracle catch on 4th and long for them to score the go ahead TD. If he dropped that Utah State wins.

There's a reason UF scheduled a cream puff team for the first game. Both FSU and Miami played serious games and seriously lost. Both looked like they could have used a couple of easy wins before the heavy games had to be played. UF was able to showcase every new and old trick without the outcome ever in doubt. Lets see if that helps when they start playing conference games. UCF looked good. If they are getting red shirt freshman from Ole Miss, then my fears about UF recruiting have come true. Its not easy in any place but its getting damn near impossible in the sunshine state. If you are a kid with the D1 skill set in Florida, you can expect to visited by UCF, UF, FSU, USF, UM, FAU, and God knows who else. You would think our humble state populates the rosters of every good team.

UCF moved up to 19 in the AP and 20 in coaches poll. Why they aren't higher is beyond me. Interesting first week of games!

Lsu smacks around Miami... Backup qb didnt make the trip because of team violations so no chance for him to take a shot. Malik looked very inaccurate (mostly overthrown balls to wide open receivers. Im not a fan of Richt calling plays on O. Defense will keep us in a lot of games but wow. It felt just like the 2005 beat down they put on us. On the other hand Va Tech surprises everyone and wallops fswho. Held scoreless at home for the first time in some 35 years or something

Pitt Penn state should be a doozy. Miami plays Savannah State.. boorrringgg! I still favor Miami to win the Coastal over Va Tech. Then run into Clemson in the ACC champ and get walloped again Makes me smile Jimbo has to face Clemson again

Here we go with Sunday Morning Quarterback...

UCF, although won 38-0 against FCS SC-State, did not look good. SC-State came to play and their defense shut down McKenzies Passing game. Milton threw 3 INT, bad ones. We had to beat them on the ground and we did with a stable of running backs. I was wondering if UCF kept the offense vanilla for no game film study for the teams coming up. UCF defense played great. Some missed tackles but for the most part a shut out is a shut out. Nation's longest win streak goes to 15 games.

Clemson 28 Tex A&M 26. Close game Jimbo went for two at the end and got denied.

#3 Georgia romps South Carolina 41-17

#8 Notre Dame 24 Ball State 16 Top ten team should blow out ball state. But, whatev. more games to play.

#10 Stanford 17 #17 USC 3

#13 Penn State rolls Pitt 51-6

Arizona State 16 #15 Mich-state 13. UCF should jump them in the polls.

Boise State 62 UCONN 7. Boise scores more on UCONN than UCF did with 56 points. But, UCF travelled to UCONN, UCONN had to travel to blue smurf field. Interesting comparision. Probably give voters a reason to put Boise above UCF. Boise travels to Oklahoma State next and we will see if they are fo' real then.

Miami 77-0 wow. beat down.

KENTUCKY finally beats the gaters after 31 years. 27-16 in da swamp. Glad for my gator friends and coworkers. Put them back in the closet for another year.

Houston moves to 2-0 beating Arizona 45-18. They prob will move into top 25.

USF beats GaTech 49-38. I watched this game. USF struggled some but pulled it together at the end. If I was a GaTech fan I would be annoyed at their offense game plan. So predictable and boring.

FAU recovers and beats Air Force 33-27

Colorado beats @Nebraska and ruins Scott Frost debut game. It was a good game to watch. Colorado was tough and didn't let the 90k+ fans intimadating them. 33-28. Final colorado drive to win was great. Aided by a nebraska defensive penalty then a 40 yard dagger in the heart long bomb. Down go the cornhuskers.

Navy beats Memphis 22-21 proving it is tough to beat navy at navy.

East Carolina thumps North Carolina 41-19. UCF travels to North Carolina next game.

FSU struggled with Samford in the first half but prevails 36-26

Whatever hype the Gators generated in game died a whimpering death in the swamp. Being there was worse. I had to explain to my child that a football game is still fun even if your team loses. Its seems like hes going to get a lot a practice with that.

Fla state barely beats Samford Bahaha Man they are terrible! The Hurricanes travel to Toledo to play in what they refer to as "The Glass Bowl" hmm Last year Toledo visited Miami and put up 30 points with a high potent offense. Same type offense this year. Could be a blowout (Miami Defense is good) could be a Barn Burner... Good early game to keep an eye on. Game time 12:00 Saturday Gators lose to Kentucky UCF keeps rolling
