What You Missed Last Night: Season Openers
Last night signified what’s sure to be an exciting start to college football. In case you missed it, here’s a quick synopsis of last night’s games.
South Carolina was the only ranked team playing last night, but Vanderbilt didn’t seem to care. South Carolina took a 10-0 lead, but Vandy came back with 10 unanswered points of its own to tie it before the half. South Carolina rallied to take the lead early in the 4th quarter, but Vanderbilt couldn’t respond. Marcus Lattimore scored 2 TDs and had over 100 yards in his debut after an ACL tear. QB Connor Shaw’s throwing shoulder got a little banged up, but he played most of the game and should be good for next week.
Massachusetts got crushed in its FBS debut. Limiting UMass to a measly 59 yards in total offense and only 3 first downs, the UConn Huskies dominated the Minutemen. Despite the huge win, UConn QB Chandler Whitmer threw two interceptions and zero touchdowns.
Utah also blanked Northern Colorado. The Utes breezed passed the Bears in their first shutout performance since 2007. The win might seem impressive, but Northern Colorado went 0-11 last season. Still, the Utes never allowed the Bears to cross midfield and limited them to only 114 yards in total offense.
