College football is finally back, and we can put aside the schadenfreude of Miami and Ohio State for a few minutes and watch some surprisingly good week one games, along with the usual gross mismatches. Baylor's win over TCU last night was epic. Oregon and LSU have scheduled an amazingly gutsy out of conference matchup for tonight. Boise State, persistent thorn in the side of the BCS, is visiting Georgia in Atlanta. And Auburn is defending the Silver Ball against Utah State.
OK, that last one promised to be a dud. But as I write, Utah State is leading 21-14. If they had any clue whatsoever about kickoff coverage, the lead would likely be bigger. My money is still on a big win for the Tigers, but this has been a lot of fun so far.
