College football Week 2 power rankings
Monday September 14th, 2015

The weeks that appear to have the more boring schedules typically produce the most craziness, and Week 2 was no exception. Toledo over Arkansas? Auburn needing overtime to beat Jacksonville State? Notre Dame almost losing to Virginia? BYU winning on another Hail Mary?

We’re still in the very early phases of learning about every team, but now we know a bit more. Every result, good, bad and in between, shapes our understanding of each squad because it makes up 50% of their body of work to this point.
