Check out the best from Week 1 in college football What a start to the season: upsets, big comebacks and great plays

College football is back! So many wild things happened last weekend, including an epic showdown in Texas and some major upsets — and this was only Week 1! This year’s opening weekend was called one of the best in college football history, and some of the odd matchups, greatest wins and biggest disappointments all made our list of huge moments.

Between Friday and Monday, there were more than 57 games played, and out of the top 25 teams, 17 ranked programs hit the field.

Below are six of the most undefeated moments from Week 1:

6. J.T. BARRETT’S seven-touchdown day

Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett had himself a day against Bowling Green, accounting for seven touchdowns, six of which came through the air. He broke a school record in Ohio State’s 77-10 win over Bowling Green on Saturday for the most total touchdowns in a game.

Led by defensive back Brandon Wilson’s 100-yard return of a missed field goal, No. 15 Houston shocked No. 3 Oklahoma, 33-23.

2. Michigan cashes in on second pick-six

The Wolverines’ defensive back Channing Stribling intercepted Hawaii quarterback Dru Brown’s pass and took it back for a touchdown, putting Michigan up 49-0. The game ended in a whopping 63-3 win over Hawaii.
