Massive CFB Takeaways From Week 2: Is Texas Back?

Now that week two has officially ended in the college football world, we finally know what could be coming for the rest of these teams later in the season!

Here are three takeaways you'll need to be aware of for the rest of the year.

Texas Might Be Back

I know we say it every year, but now it is different. Quinn Ewers, one of the highest-rated high school players ever, is leading this team. Pure talent means a lot in CFB, and Texas has it in spades. With an intense running back room and an elite wide receiver core led by Xavier Worthy, Texas is scary. The most prominent proponent is that they just beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa, a feat that had yet to be done since the 2019 LSU team broke every major record in the sport. This team is outstanding, and in a year where the SEC doesn't look as good as it has in previous years, it is their time to strike.

While they would/will struggle against a run-heavy powerhouse team, like a Michigan or a PSU, they won't need to cross that bridge for a while. But folks, Texas might be back.

Ohio State Looks Very Shaky

Ohio State lost a lot this past year in the draft, including quarterback CJ Stroud. Typically, OSU has their next guy all ready to go and take over. Dwayne Haskins (RIP) took over for JT Barrett, Justin Fields took over for Haskins, and Stroud took over for Fields. They have very good QBs who eventually leave but have their replacements ready. That is not the case this year. The offense looks very shaky under Kyle McCord, and that is while facing Indiana and Youngstown State. This team should be blowing them out, and while they aren't losing, this isn't like the Ohio State teams of old.

Marvin Harrison is still the best wide receiver in college football, without a doubt. TreVyeon Henderson has been good while splitting carries with the rest of the backs, and the defense still has studs. But if McCord can't get this team humming like they have, Michigan will destroy them again, and PSU's revamped team could upset them in the Horse Shoe.

Colorado Could Win The Pac-12

Yes, I'm buying into the hype. Colorado has looked excellent so far to start the year, and while that TCU team wasn't nearly as good as they were previously, that is still a better win than most teams had in week one. Follow it up with another excellent performance in week two against Nebraska, and now you've got people talking. USC is still the clear favorite; don't misinterpret that. But we know they can be beaten: Utah did it twice. Colorado plays Colorado State, then goes to #13 Oregon, and then hosts #5 USC. Colorado has been facing better teams all year than USC will have met by the time they play.

Colorado could upset USC and their underwhelming defense if they aren't careful. Then, you start looking at the other teams. You'll also face Oregon, which is winnable, UCLA, Utah, and a few other ranked matchups. This team is good and has very manageable games. It all comes down to stopping Caleb Williams. If they do that, I'd take them to win the Pac-12.
