And now, the Sooners have fallen victim to the Kick Six.
After battling cancer, Pittsburgh’s James Conner made his triumphant return to college football Saturday.
If a picture is worth 1,000 words, these photos of the weekend’s best moments, including South Alabama quarterback Dallas Davis’ hurdle in the Jaguars upset of Mississippi State, are worth a look.
Wisconsin pulled off a huge upset over No. 4 Arkansas lost to No. Here’s everything you need to know.
Talk about calling for reinforcements.
Kickoff Week’s best photos
Life after Dak Prescott got off to an ugly start for Mississippi State. Welcome back, Conner
When loving the Head Ball Coach goes wrong
At this point, Perry is just suited up for depth, but has not played yet.

Great QBs have great memories ?
Navy starting QB Tago Smith was injured in the first half against Fordham.
Stars come out for Michigan’s blowout win
Conner scored in his 2016 debut in what will be one of the best stories of the year.
Maybe you have the kids today. With Smith out for the remainder, Will Worth took over, but it was freshman Malcolm Perry who got the biggest surprise.
Rodgers picked Texas over Notre Dame, adding “I love the underdog. His gambit worked, and Rodgers – and Cal fans – have never forgotten.
Well, it’s your lucky game day. Alabama got it. The Tigers’ frustration after throwing a late interception was manifest in a late hit by offensive lineman Josh Boutte on Wisconsin safety D’Cota Dixon.
“I told coach [Brent] Pry don’t try to put him in the ‘Big Hit’ reel on defense, although he probably had the biggest hit of the day,” Penn State coach James Franklin said.. Or you goofed up and scheduled that family yard sale for Kickoff Week. Florida State got it. 5 LSU (which you can read about here). 8 USC. He’s 5-foot-10 and 260 pounds and he’s been paying attention in tackling drills.
Some might recall that in 2004 Texas coach Mack Brown lobbied hard for his team to be promoted in the national rankings so it could eclipse Rodgers and Cal in the BCS standings and thereby earn a Rose Bowl berth. Mississippi State missed a 28-yard field goal with :06 left in the game. 1 Nebraska fell to unranked UCLA and No. Back then, No. Western Michigan upset Northwestern, 22-21, marking the 11th straight season a MAC team has defeated a Big Ten team (every year since 2006). South Alabama upset Mississippi State 21-20, the biggest upset in the last five years, according to FPI, which gave the Jaguars a 2.3 percent chance to win the game. One fan is already ahead of the game in honoring the Head Ball Coach.
Hey you, grab your uni
Look, don’t feel bad OU, it’s happened to some great programs. Or perhaps that destination wedding your uncle booked didn’t account for college football’s return.
The kicker hits the truck stick
Regardless, you might have missed some of the Saturday action.
Rodgers also noted he couldn’t pick USC to beat Alabama. The Trojans handed Cal its only regular season loss in 2004, a 23-17 nail biter. And also Mack is not there anymore [so] I can pick Texas again.”
Kickoff Week started with a few upsets.
Not to be outdone, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh stole the show when he had some words (or punches?) of encouragement for quarterback? Wilton Speight.
Meanwhile, the University of Florida will honor Steve Spurrier tonight by naming the field at the Swamp after him. Kick Six, The Sequel
Michigan thumped Hawai’i 63-3, and sports icons Michael Jordan and Derek Jeter were there to see it. With LSU’s loss to Wisconsin, it was the first time since 1972 that two top-5 teams lost on the opening weekend, according to Stats & Info. — Ted Miller
Some football wounds don’t heal, as former California quarterback Aaron Rodgers made clear as the guest picker on ESPN’s College GameDay.
Penn State’s Joey Julius isn’t your normal kicker
