College Football Week 2: The Battle at Bristol

Week 2 was not nearly as exciting as week 1, but we did have the Battle at Bristol, which boasted the largest college football audience ever at 156,990 (let's be clear though, Michigan is still the highest for an actual football stadium). While the venue was cool, the game wasn't that exciting and Tennessee whomped Virginia Tech 45-25.

GAMES YOU MISSED

In other not-exciting week 2 news, (2) Clemson almost lost to Troy, but came back and won 30-24. That dropped them 3 spots in the ranking this week to No. 5. (9) Georgia really almost lost to 1-AA school Nicholls, 26-24. Arkansas blocked (15) TCU's game-winning field goal to send the game into overtime, which Arkansas won 41-38. And Central Michigan beat (22) Oklahoma State 30-27 on an untimed down to win the game (which a MAC ref said was not allowed).

F/M/K

FIRE: The Refs in the CMU vs. OSU game
While it was a great win for Central, the rules state that they should not have had an untimed down at the end of the game (which is how they beat OSU). Can't make that mistake guys, you just can't.

MARRY: Arkansas in OT
Because the win over ranked TCU was a big win for that program and for Bret Bielema.

KILL: Georgia Football
They almost lost to Nicholls. Enough said.
