We’ve been waiting since January and the 2014 College Football season has finally arrived. And what a start to a new season it was! We saw in week 1 contenders, pretenders, Heisman performances, blowouts, nail biters, poor calls, amazing plays, comebacks….all on the opening weekend. And we still have games tonight as Tennessee hosts Utah State, Baylor vs. SMU, and on Labor Day Monday Miami plays Louisville.
The wacky world of College Football kicked off on Thursday night with a highly anticipated game between 2 SEC heavyweights, Texas A&M at South Carolina. SC was a big favorite and a team many had picked to win the East. They were coming off 3 straight 11 win seasons in a row. A&M lost Johnny Football, their top wide out in Mike Evans, and key offensive lineman. On top of that, they had the worst defense in the SEC last year. The atmosphere was freaking electric in Williams Brice Stadium. No problem for the Aggies as they came in and shredded the Gamecock defense. Kenny Hill lit up the SC secondary and Carolinas defense looked like last years version of the A&M defense!
