Week one of the college football season will be done when Florida State takes on Pittsburgh. Yet, after Louisville’s Sunday September 1 performance against Ohio, it’s time to release the five most impressive teams of the week. Teddy Bridgewater threw five touchdowns in three quarters of action. This is not a top five ranking, so don’t always expect to see the same teams over and over again.
1. Clemson: The Clemson Tigers answered the bell on Saturday night with an impressive victory over Georgia. The defense held Georgia to 14 second half points and it was enough to get the win. Tajh Boyd accounted for all five touchdowns and consistently made big plays. Clemson is a force to be contended with in 2013.
2. North Dakota State: The Bison scored first and they scored last. When it was all said and done, North Dakota State would earned a shocking, yet believable upset over the Kansas State Wildcats. The two time FCS champions dominated the line of scrimmage for most of the game, and when it was winning time Brock Jensen led the Bison to a touchdown in the final seconds. Fans would marvel at the precision of the offense.
3. LSU: Have things really changed for the LSU Tigers? LSU earned a 10 point victory over a tough TCU squad. LSU held TCU to 259 total yards. What’s more impressive is that they put up 448 yards of offense and score 37 points.
4. Louisville: In a game that could have turned into a nightmare, the Louisville Cardinals blasted Ohio early and often. Teddy Bridgewater led Louisville on six scoring drives and threw five touchdown passes. The defense shut down the Ohio running game in grand fashion.
5. UCLA: The Bruins turned a close game into a second half route over Nevada. They scored 58 and held the high powered Nevada Wolf Pack to 20 points. UCLA looks very impressive and they play on both sides of the ball.
Oklahoma: Is the Oklahoma defense back? They held ULM to zero points. The offense needs to get the passing game going.
Washington: The Huskies dominated Boise State in game 1. They held the Broncos to 6 points while scoring 38.
