Winners and Losers from Week 1 of College Football

    There’s still a biggie remaining between LSU and Miami on Sunday night, but the conference that produced last year’s two participants in the College Football Playoffs was the biggest winner through the first three days of opening weekend.

    That would be the SEC, which continued to look like the king of conferences with a 12-1 record. The only loss was West Virginia’s dismantling of a rebuilding Tennessee team.

    Highlight wins came from Auburn, who won a top-10 showdown with Washington, and Alabama’s dismantling of an overmatched Louisville. Vanderbilt looked strong against a decent MTSU team, and Ole Miss blew past Texas Tech.

    Others like Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Texas AM played patsies, but they all took care of business without many issues.

    Others like the ACC and Big 12 had plenty of highlights, and one of the Big Ten’s losses came in an intra-divisional game, but the SEC looks much improved from top to bottom.

    Maybe that coaching overhaul was a good thing. But, for one week, the conference didn’t beat up on itself.
