There wasn't a ton of major big-time action this weekend, but the few big games that did play out were very entertaining. Oklahoma staged a furious comeback to defeat Tennessee in Knoxville, Michigan State hung on against Oregon to remain in the top 10, and BYU outlasted Boise State for a second big win as many weeks. 


Auburn fans may have to take a few days to recover from what was a stressfest royale courtesy of Jacksonville State. The Gamecocks had Auburn on the ropes all day, but in the final minutes, the Tigers held, and a 19-yard punt set up Auburn up for the tie. War Eagle later won in OT to move on undefeated.


BYU is one of the nation's hottest teams right now with wins over Nebraska and Boise State to get 2015 rolling. I would look at them as an outside playoff team had they not lost star QB Taysom Hill to injury a week ago. Hill is a special player - the kind of player that can make that big of a difference. The Cougars will do some big things this year, but I think playoff might be a bit too much to ask with their #2 guy now going.


Another hot team from the state of Utah is...Utah. The Utes get to 2-0 after shutting out rival Utah State in the second half for a 24-14 win. Utah has two road games on the horizon: Fresno State and Oregon. 


Louisville starts off the year 0-2 after losing a close game to Houston at home. The Cardinals will host Clemson on Thursday night. The Tigers dismantled Sun Belt favorite Appalachian State, 41-10 to get to 2-0 but are relatively untested. We will know more Thursday night as Louisville will be playing with nothing to lose.
