Seems we don't have a 2010 college football thread yet, so let's get one started.
Did anyone watch any of the games tonight? I caught the last quarter and OT of the Utah v. Pitt game and loved the excitement at the end. I don't follow either school, but I was happy to see a new Pac-10 member knock off a ranked opponent.
I paid close attention to the USC v. Hawaii game. More than anything, I loved seeing Barkley step up and start making better plays. He threw a lot of picks last year, but seemed to be cured of that tonight. He showed a lot of poise and even tied a school record for passing TDs. It also made me happy to see them spread the ball around to multiple people. The playcalling last year was completely predictable and a lot of great players hardly got a chance. It looks like Kiffin is smart enough to go with multiple attacks, which was enough to hang 49 points on Hawaii. Though I'm not sure why so many two point conversions were called.
The defense seemed to fall apart in the second half. Part of it is probably because they're fresh, but I also think it was significant that the defense spent almost the entire third quarter on the field. They looked tired at the end. Hopefully, some conditioning, coaching and the offense will give them some rest next weekend.
Anyhow, what did the rest of you think about today's games? And let's keep this thread going though the rest of the season - it should be an exciting one!
