Bad Wins: BYU did what they were supposed to do vs Eastern Michigan, yet did not look sharp.  They’ll need to tighten things up.
Good Losses: Nearly every MWC team that lost was in their game in the 2nd half, except…..
Bad Losses: …New Mexico, yet after falling behind 3-28, the Lobos kinda got back in it.  Kinda.

Big 10

Nonconference Record: 5-3
Good Wins: Michigan was a slow starter in Week 2, but eventually got it going against Navy (and by the way, isn't it cool that Michigan is playing Navy?!).  Michigan St was dominant, while Indiana went up big and held on.  Yet it was the Illini who pulled off the most surprising result, bouncing LSU and never trailing in the process of doing so.
Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: Wisconsin relied on six FG’s, which is never a recipe for success against a good team (or any team, for that matter).  Yet the Badgers returned a blocked PAT for a safety, overcame a 4th quarter deficit of 10 points, and went into overtime against Georgia.  It would have been a tremendous win had they pulled it out.

Nonconference Record: 6-6
Good Wins: The Aztecs and Vikings both went down 13-0 before rallying; the Spartans and Titans went the opposite route and carved out big leads; the Tigers exploded in the 2nd half; and the Bulldogs gave up a late tying touchdown, only to score the winning TD minutes later.
Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: All of the losses, barring one, were in the “good” category.  The one loss that wasn’t good was really, really not good…see below.
Bad Losses: It’s not that UNI is a bad team; on the contrary, the Panthers are solid and will win a lot of games.  It was how Boise lost this game that was disconcerting.  The Broncos, frankly, played lousy, falling behind 3-31 before realizing this was a real actual live game.  So, the Broncos will not be going 18-0 this inaugural season, but the overall #1 seed in the D2 playoffs is still up for grabs.

Nonconference Record: 5-5
Good Wins: TCU took care of business quick and early.
Bad Wins: The Cougars, Raiders and Wolves all had difficulty separating, though I’d hesitate to call any of them ‘bad wins’; just something to keep an eye on.
Good Losses: Rice actually led 31-24, and Tulane was *this close* to a 2-0 start.
Bad Losses: La Tech was up 14-0 on Tennessee, then surrendered 44 consecutive points.  But, clearly and without doubt, the ASAC horror show of Week 2 was Baylor’s debut.  The Bears relied on five field goals, and generally stunk up the joint.

Conference Round-up: In a much-anticipated early-season showdown, NIU took down Bowling Green when the Falcons blew two PAT’s.  Ouch.

Good Wins: Ohio is on fire!  The Bobcats were in control against Baylor virtually the entire game.  Even when giving up scores, they appeared poised and in control.  Clearly, they are the best team in the MAC at this early stage.
Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: Miami, Akron, Ball St and EMU were in their games longer than anticipated.

Group IV

Nonconference Record: 5-6
Good Wins: All of these wins were good, either by dint of their actual performance/score, or the quality of the opponents.
Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: Utah St, Idaho, Northern Colorado and New Mexico St all were in losses that were closer than the final scores indicate.
Bad Losses: NAU surrendered a double-digit 2nd half lead, while Idaho St was drilled.

Conference Round-up: Penn shut out Columbia with little fanfare.
Nonconference Record: 2-5 (following a 1-7 mark opening week)
Good Wins: Harvard obtained a victory that was good for them, and very much needed by the Ivy League as a whole.  Three wins and 12 losses through the first two weeks shows the Ivy is going to have an adjustment period.  However, the blow was softened when the Crimson scored a convincing win over a good Eastern Kentucky squad; they outscored the Colonels 28-3 after the 1st quarter.
Bad Wins: Yale, meanwhile, is the only 2-0 team in the Ivy.  Their win over Drake, however, was an ugly affair.
Good Losses: Dartmouth was pitching a shutout at the half, scored a late TD to force overtime, then missed a 2-pt conversion in the 3rd OT.
Bad Losses: All the remainder of the Ivy’s losses were sorta kinda ugly.  Like I said, there is a transition period occurring.

Good Wins: Oregon survived a game of surges, and Arizona – after looking dead in the water – finally found the circuit breaker and scored 25 consecutive points.
Bad Wins: While not necessarily ‘bad’ victories, Stanford and Washington don’t quite look like themselves yet.
Good Losses: Cal tied their game in the 4th quarter Notre Dame; nice effort.  By the way, how cool is it that Cal vs Notre Dame is a thing?  I love the way these schedules came out.
Bad Losses: USC looked listless.  Frankly, the Trojans have looked horrible so far.  Can they climb out of their funk?

Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: Sam Houston went toe-to-toe with a formidable opponent, carved out 17-point leads on two occasions, and nearly came away with the upset.
Bad Losses: The Cajuns fell too far behind (17-49) for an impressive comeback to make a difference, while the Warhawks were 8.5 point favorites.

Mid American

Nonconference Record: 6-2
Good Wins: Another stellar week in the SWC, which is beginning to look like Season 1’s preeminent power conference.  The biggest highlight this week is Oklahoma, who thoroughly took apart Alabama.  The Sooners led 20-3 after the 1st quarter and coasted in.
Bad Wins: None, although some of the smaller programs vanquished by SWC foes hung in there for large portions of these games.
Good Losses: Texas erased a 22-point deficit against Air Force in the 4th quarter, only to surrender a last-second score.
Bad Losses: K-State actually led WVU 21-0 in the 1st quarter, and then the wheels came off.

Nonconference Record: 4-5
Good Wins: While not necessarily good in the sense of dominating an opponent, Georgia’s win over Wisconsin was certainly eventful.  The Bulldogs gave up a blocked PAT for a safety, blew a 10-point 4th quarter lead and prevailed in OT.  Harrowing.
Bad Wins: SEC powers continue to have trouble putting teams away: Tennessee actually fell into a 0-14 hole, Mississippi St trailed 24-31 at one point, and South Carolina was tied 7-7 at the half, all against teams that were – on average – two TD underdogs.
Good Losses: None
Bad Losses: Ole Miss missed a PAT, setting the stage for a last-second loss.  LSU looked sluggish against a team they were heavily favored over.  But the crown goes to Alabama, who looked lethargic for the 2nd week in a row, and got stomped in the process.​

Conference Round-up: UMass handled Buffalo in their opener.  UNH is a different story.  It may be time to become concerned for UNH.  Boston U is a resuscitated program that the Wildcats should have beaten handily; instead, UNH played from behind most of the game, tied it up late, then yielded the decisive score.
Nonconference Record: 2-4
Good Wins: The Black Bears scored three unanswered touchdowns in the 4th quarter to pull away, while Vermont is proving to be a tough out.  Catamount football, catch the fever!

​​​Division 1

Conference Round-up: The Terriers kept coming back, yet the Eagles proved to be too much.  A well-played, competitive conference opener.
Nonconference Record: 4-4
Good Wins: Marshall’s victory over UCF was steady.  App St twice went down by 17 against Sam Houston, and continued firing back; there were four lead changes in the 4th quarter, including the Mountaineers winning score.
Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: None
Bad Losses: Samford got trampled right out of the gate, while the Citadel got smoked in the 2nd half.

Nonconference Record: 3-7 (following a 2-8 mark opening week)
Good Wins: Creighton and Wichita got their first program victories, yet the story of the MoVal belongs to UNI.  The Panthers took down Boise St by taking a surprising (for them and everyone else) 31-3 lead into the 4th quarter, then surviving a furious comeback attempt by the Broncos.  The MVC needed a signature victory like this.
Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: SIU lost a very close game against a state rival they could meet again in the playoffs.
Bad Losses: Many of the MoVal’s losses were ugly, but Tulsa’s was excruciating.  The Golden Hurricane tied the game late, then promptly gave up the decisive score to drop to 0-2 on the season.
