After failing to see any truly surprising upsets in Week 1, we saw a slew of them in Week 2, along with a bunch of entertaining storylines. Houston celebrated their victory over Louisville with an awesome team dance to Future's "Comma", Bowling Green humiliated Maryland with a 48-27 blowout win and Toledo shocked Arkansas in Little Rock. Razorbacks head coach Bret Bielema became the Week 2 Goat just days after he ripped Ohio State for a weak schedule. As expected, his Twitter mentions were insane after the crushing loss.
Oklahoma's win over Tennessee and BYU's victory over Boise State weren't stunning upsets, but both were fine entertainment. OU rallied from a 17-0 deficit to win in overtime and BYU's Tanner Mangum heaved another Hail Mary.
Random fact: Did you know that Mangum was co-MVP with Jameis Winston at the 2011 Elite 11 Camp?
Rarely do FBS kickers make (or join) history in blowout victories over FCS opponents but that's exactly what Kent State's April Goss did on Saturday. She became the second female kicker to ever score in a college football game when she booted an extra point through the uprights during their win over Delaware State:
Party Like It's 1988!
Eastern Michigan won their first non-conference road game in 27 years ... 27 years! The Eagles beat Wyoming 48-27.
In honor of the Pennsylvania high school football game that ended with a score of 107-90 (one guy rushed for 720 yards and 10 TDs ... not kidding), here's a list of every 100-point game by power conference schools that you never knew you needed ... but is a really cool trip through history.
Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker unleashed some SEC-related NSFW comments toward the crowd after the Sooners' comeback win against Tennessee. Vols coach Butch Jones took exception with Striker and told him to have some class.
They're At It Again!
Remember when Florida linemen were the laughing stock of college football in November 2013 after blocking each other? Well, two Gator defenders did something similar to clinch their victory over East Carolina and it was equally hilarious.
Toledo rolled out of Fayetteville with a victory over the Razorbacks ( plus a $1 million payday) and former Rockets/current Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins was loving it:

Florida head coach Jim McElwain unloaded a tongue lashing for the ages after running back Kelvin Taylor drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for a throat slash touchdown celebration:
Taylor took to Twitter on Sunday to send out a classy message:
Friday marked the 14th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, causing many to recall the hours and days following the horrific event. Some of those memories involve sporting events, including college football. South Carolina and Mississippi State played the first college football game after the attacks and it was an emotional environment unlike any other:
