Week 1 Notes:

Only two teams from Downtown Magazine's preseason Top 25 suffered losses in the opening weekend of the college football season, those being Michigan - a 41-14 loser to Alabama - and Boise State, which dropped a 17-13 decision to #13 Michigan State, a team which may be better than their ranking indicates.

Thus, Boise State dropped out of the Top 25, as they barely registered at #23 in the preseason rankings, while Michigan, being thoroughly outclassed by the Crimson Tide, fell from a preseason berth of #9, all they way down to #17. Boise State was supplanted by Ohio State, which came in at #24.

Top-ranked USC had little trouble with Hawaii, easily handling the Warriors, 49-10.

#2 Oklahoma won, 24.7, at UTEP, and though the score wasn't as huge as some Sooner fans might have enjoyed, the game was on the road, and, as openers go, it was still a positive experience as Oklahoma can now prepare for its home opener against cream-puff Florida A&M. The score of that game may well be more of the lopsided variety Oklahoma fans normally enjoy in the early non-conference part of the schedule.

Speaking of cream-puffs, the North Texas Mean Green were not so mean in a 41-14 loss to #4 LSU and #5 Oregon didn't show much in the way of defense - though that's not really their forte - knocking off Arkansas State, 57-34, in one of the higher-scoring contests of the week.

South Carolina retained their spot at #6 despite a scare from a very game Vanderbilt team. The Commodores were at home and knocked the Gamecock's starting QB, Connor Shaw, out of the game for much of the first half. When Shaw returned, Carolina established a lead and their defense hunkered down to preserve the win.

High scores were posted by #16 Oklahoma State (84-0 over Savannah), #11 West Virginia (69-34 over Marshall), #8 Florida State (69-3 over Murray State), and #24 Ohio State (56-10 winners over Miami of Ohio).

The closest call of all was #14 Virginia Tech's 20-17 overtime victory over Georgia Tech, which may have a future in the Top 25 at a later date.
