No. 1 Alabama 52, No. 20 USC 6
Alabama completely dominated the Trojans at Cowboys Stadium, with true freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts racking up four touchdowns in his first college game. The Tide's D held USC to 194 yards of total offense. It was the first time USC's been held to zero touchdowns since Nov. 1, 1997 at Washington.

No. 2 Clemson 19, Auburn 13
It came down to the final play, but Clemson was able to survive their trip to the Plains, with a wild, 19-13 win. Clemson should have a cakewalk against Troy and South Carolina State, before opening ACC play at Georgia Tech on Thursday, September 22nd. Auburn opens SEC play in two weeks, when they host Texas A&M.

No. 15 Houston 33, No. 3 Oklahoma 23
The first Saturday of the season got off to a rip-roaring start, as the Sooners were stunned at NRG Stadium by the Cougars. Tom Herman's club was led by Greg Ward, who threw two touchdown passes, as well as a surprise 'Kick Six' kick return by Brandon Wilson. Things don't get any either for Oklahoma, which hosts Ohio State two weeks from now.

No. 4 Florida State 45, No. 11 Ole Miss 34
The final game of Week 1 might have been the wildest, with the Seminoles overcoming a 28-3 lead in the second quarter, to win going away in Orlando. In the process, it appears as though Jimbo Fisher's club found its answer at quarterback, with Deondre Francois throwing for 419 yards and two touchdowns in the win. There is no rest for the weary here; Ole Miss hosts Alabama in two weeks, while Florida State visits Louisville.

No. 5 LSU 14, Wisconsin 16
LSU went into Lambeau Field as a heavy favorite over the Badgers and was stunned. Wisconsin's defense held the Tigers to 257 yards of total offense and dominated time of possession. LSU, a trendy national title pick entering the year, proved why Les Miles was nearly fired at the end of last season and entered this season on the hot seat -- there's just no improvement in the offense, with the same issues carrying over to a new year.

No. 6 Ohio State 77, Bowling Green 10
What do you do when you lose 12 players to the NFL Draft, including five in the first round? If you're Urban Meyer, you put up 77 points in the season opener. Despite all the personnel loss, the Buckeyes still have J.T. Barrett, who threw for six -- yes, six -- touchdowns in the dominant win. Ohio State travels to Oklahoma in Week 3.

No. 7 Michigan 63, Hawaii 3
Poor Hawaii never stood a chance, going to the Big House just one week after opening the season in Australia. Not that Michigan didn't play a big part in that. After the "Summer of Harbaugh," we learned that the Wolverines coach is still one of the best in the game. Wilton Speight threw for three touchdowns in his debut as a starter, while freshman Chris Evans rushed for two touchdowns in the rout.

No. 8 Stanford 26, Kansas State 13
Christian McCaffrey picked up right where he left off last year, tallying 126 yards rushing and two touchdowns, as the Cardinal took down Bill Snyder's Wildcats in Palo Alto. Stanford now has a byebefore opening Pac-12 play against USC two weeks from now.

No. 9 Tennessee 20, Appalachian State 13 (OT)
In what will undoubtedly end up as one of the wildest games of the opening weekend, the Vols needed overtime to put away pesky App State. Jalen Hurd recovered a Joshua Dobbs fumble in the end zone to in OT to give Tennessee a 20-13 lead it would not reliniquish.

Texas 50, No. 10 Notre Dame 47 (OT)
In what just might have been the game of the weekend, the Longhorns pulled off a shocking win, behind the two-headed monster of Shane Buechele and Tyrone Swoopes at quarterback. The true freshman Buechele threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns in his debut, while the senior Swoopes, plunged in for the game-winning score in overtime, as Texas got the opening-night win it so desperately needed to kick off the 2016 campaign.

No. 12 Michigan State 28, Furman 13
It wasn't always pretty for Mark Dantonio's club in its opener Friday against Furman, but the Spartans transitioned out of the "Connor Cook era" and into 2016 with a 28-13 win. Tyler O'Connor threw for three touchdowns, and Michigan State now enters a bye before travelling to Notre Dame in Week 3.
No. 13 TCU 59, South Dakota State 41
TCU started off slow but then opened it up in the second half to win its season opener. New quarterback Kenny Hill -- a Texas A&M transfer -- had 484 total yards and five touchdowns for the Horned Frogs.
No. 14 Washington 48, Rutgers 13
After a summer of hype, the Huskies cruised in their opener, thanks to 287 yards passing and three touchdowns from quarterback Jake Browning. With games against Idaho and Portland State coming up, Washington should cruise to Pac-12 play at 3-0.
No. 16 UCLA 24, Texas A&M 31 (OT)
For three and a half quarters, UCLA was dominated by Texas A&M before scoring a late TD and converting a two-point conversion to force overtime. But the Aggies finished the Bruins off in the first OT, earning a huge win to kick off a season in which Kevin Sumlin entered the year feeling pressure in College Station. For UCLA and the Pac-12, it was a lost opportunity to rack up a quality non-conference win that could have been useful when playoff resumes are evaluated.

No. 17 Iowa 41, Miami (OH) 21
Following a 12-win season a year ago, the Hawkeyes picked up right where they left off, cruising to an easy victory over the Redhawks. Akrum Wadley and LeShun Daniels Jr. each tallied two touchdowns, as the Hawkeyes get set for a game against rival Iowa State next week.

No. 18 Georgia 33, No. 22 North Carolina 24
In Kirby Smart's first game as head coach, the Bulldogs earned a very nice non-conference win after coming from behind in the fourth quarter. Running back Nick Chubb rushed for 222 yards and two TDs in his first game back from a knee injury.
No. 19 Louisville 70, Charlotte 14
For those of you who didn't see the Cardinals game Thursday, your eyes aren't fooling you: Yes, they put up 70 points against Charlotte, with quarterback Lamar Jackson accounting for eight total touchdowns. Things should get tougher next week when the Cardinals travel to Syracuse for a Friday night game at the Carrier Dome, before hosting Florida State in a mega-showdown in Week 3.

No. 21 Oklahoma State 61, Southeastern Louisiana 7
An easy win for the Pokes, with four different running backs tallying at least one score. Oklahoma State now hosts Central Michigan next week, before a big game against a sneaky-good Pitt team in Week 3.

No. 23 Baylor 55, Northwestern State 7
Baylor began life without Art Briles on Friday, although on the field, it looked a lot like life with their former coach. The Bears jumped out to a 48-0 lead at halftime, with most of their starters out when play resumed after intermission. The Bears host SMU next week, before traveling to Rice two Fridays from now.

No. 24 Oregon 53, UC-Davis 28
The Ducks' cruised behind five combined touchdowns for quarterback Dakota Prukop and running back Royce Freeman, but after giving up almost 400 yards of offense to an FCS school, there are reasons for concern. The Ducks host Virginia (which lost a stunner to Richmond) next week before traveling to Nebraska in Week 3.

No. 25 Florida 24, UMass 7
The Gators opened up their 2016 campaign with a win at The Swamp behind two touchdowns from new quarterback Luke del Rio.
