I almost included Louisville here, but road wins over a Power 5 program that was 24-3 entering the game are a big deal. After a shaky opener against LA Tech, the Hogs got a nice road win at TCU, displaying plenty of grit. I liked what I saw from QB Austin Allen throwing three TDs and rushing for a fourth.
Beating ND looks pretty good. I was impressed by UT that night. The Horns thumped UTEP 41-7 in Week Two. The seven points are the fewest allowed by Texas in almost two years.

The Badgers take-down of LSU in Week One is holding my attention and they had no trouble in Week 2. Wisconsin has now held their last 10 non-conference opponents that visit Madison to just six points per game.

New QB Ryan Burns looked sharp, as did Christian McCaffrey against a good K-State D. That's enough to keep the Cardinals here for now.

The Tigers weren't pretty winning at Auburn last week (although that's not an easy place to play) and they sure weren't pretty defeating Troy. Still, what was expected to be the most potent offense in FBS football ranks No. 102 in the nation in yards per play (4.99).
The Wolverines have crushed their two cupcakes almost as impressively as OSU, outscoring Hawaii and UCF by a combined 114-17. However, they didn't run the ball well against UCF, going for under three yards a carry.

Curtis Samuel is piling up huge all-purpose yardage numbers, averaging 201 per game. Greg Schiano's D has scored three TDs this season and has yielded none -- and that's against programs that ranked No. 4 and No. 13 in offense last year.

No Greg Ward Jr, no problem. The Cougars cruised past FCS Lamar after the big win against OU in the opener. Ward was held out due to a shoulder injury but as I reported Saturday morning, he's expected back for the Thursday night game vs. Cincy.

Deondre Francois looked superb rallying the Noles over a talented Ole Miss team last Monday night. They weren't tested by Charleston Southern in Week 2, but they will be this week against Lamar Jackson and Louisville.
When you've beat one team that was ranked in the Top 25 and another that is one of the best mid-majors by a combined score of 90-16 -- and everyone in Tuscaloosa is ticked off about the performance, you know you have an insanely high standard. The Tide's D is allowing 217 yards per game despite having faced teams with two of the nation's best WRs (USC's Juju Smith Schuster and WKU's Taywan Taylor).
