Gary Patterson: We found a way to win

The TCU coach explains how facing teams that know him and his program particularly well -- like Minnesota -- can be tricky.

Potentially tricky openers for both Nebraska and Penn State today. Interested to see how Huskers defense, playing in simplified, more aggressive scheme, holds up against BYU quarterback Taysom Hill. Coaches love DT Maliek Collins -- interested to see how he looks. Penn State's big question remains the offensive line. Temple is a good barometer as Owls really get after the quarterback. We should learn something about both Huskers and Lions.

GameDay makes Auburn-Louisville picks

Kirk Herbstreit and David Pollack think new starting QB Jeremy Johnson will lead No. 6 Auburn to victory, but Desmond Howard has the Cardinals pulling off the upset.

Meet one of ASU's biggest fans and Todd Graham's niece- Tessler Graham. The name sound familiar? Maybe it's because her parents came up with the name while watching ASU beat USC last season. They liked (Cody) Kessler as a name but dropped the K and added a T. Little Tessler joined the world five months later and will attend her first game today as No. 15 ASU takes on Texas A&M.

The Baylor offense we're used to seeing certainly showed up in the second half against SMU. The No. 4 Bears averaged 10 yards per play in the game's final two quarters, hitting the Mustangs' thin, tiring defense for gains of 57, 56, 56, 42, 41 and 38 yards. Meanwhile, its defense pitched a second-half shutout and held SMU to 3.3 yards per play.

Soundtrack to our Saturdays

College GameDay looks back at the contributions of Chris Fowler, who stepped aside as host after 25 years.


Arkansas Tech tribute turns into TD

The Wonder Boys lined up with 10 players on the field for their first defensive play as a way to honor Zemaric Holt, a teammate who drowned this summer. Amazingly, the result was a fumble recovery for a TD.


Malzahn says Johnson is ready

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn says of QB Jeremy Johnson: "When he's played he's played well. This is his team."


Brett McMurphy @McMurphyESPN

Last year Northwestern’s 4 wins vs. FBS were as underdogs, NW 10-point dog to Stanford playing only 8th pre-noon kickoff in school history

Tate and Golic predict Texas-Notre Dame

Former Notre Dame WR Golden Tate said "I feel right back at home" on SportsCenter from South Bend, and predicted a big win in a high-scoring game for Notre Dame vs. Texas.


Darren Rovell @darrenrovell

There are guys in this business that do this job with such ease that you can only marvel at them. Chris Fowler is in that select group.

Nick Wagoner @nwagoner

Chris Fowler just said his goodbyes to College Gameday and it was every bit as sincere and outstanding as his work on the show.

Could Nebraska fall in Lincoln?

Nebraska hasn't lost a season opener since 1985, but the College GameDay crew thinks BYU could end that streak today. Kirk Herbstreit: "I think BYU is one of those upset specials everyone keeps talking about."


DWade @DwyaneWade

ok ok! it's time to see why part of my house is decorated with Nebraska memorabilia. Headed to Lincoln for my very first @Huskers game.
