What We Learned from Week 2:

Not much.

*Clemson and Georgia struggled way too hard to put away inferior opponents- but that is understandable considering both teams are coming off big opening weekends. Or maybe it’s a sign that neither team is very good? We can’t say at this point.

*Tennessee bounced back to throttle the Virginia Tech Hokies by 24 at Bristol Speedway. The Vols fell behind 14-0, but were on the right side of a comeback victory for a change. Maybe the pronouncements of the Vols demise were premature?

*Northern Illinois might be a program in decline. Since Rod Carey took over in 2013, the Huskies have finished 12-2, 11-3, and 8-6. Northern Illinois is already 0-2 this season with embarrassing losses to Wyoming and South Florida. See a trend here?

*Baylors offense really struggled, scoring only 6 points in the first half – against SMU! The Bears seem to have regressed, and do not look like a Big 12 title contender at this point.

*Texas Tech’s defense is atrocious. Really atrocious. The Red Raiders gave up 68 points and 652 total yards to an Arizona State offense that only returned four starters. The Sun Devils have a new QB, a completely revamped OL, and a new offensive coordinator calling the plays. It’s difficult to see how Tech makes it to bowl eligibility this season.

*Stick a fork in Mark Stoops. Kentucky’s performance in the Swamp was appalling.

*TCU’s playoff hopes are on life support after an OT loss to Arkansas.

*After week #2, the Four playoff Teams are:
Alabama
Ohio State
Florida State
Clemson

Waiting in the wings:
Michigan, Houston, Tennessee, Georgia, Louisville, Washington.

On Life Support:
LSU, Oklahoma, Notre Dame.
