College football yawn.

Everything turned out pretty much as I predicted.

The Gators had a scare. My South Florida Bulls lost to a mediocre Big 12 team. At least some other Bulls, Buffalo, managed to play Auburn tough for three quarters.

Penn State failed to keep a narrow halftime lead, and fell to the Buckeyes. I've always had a soft spot for the Nittany Lions, as I was born, and my mother grew up, less than fifty miles from Happy Valley.

The other, local, Lions, Columbia, opened their season with a win over Georgetown. Of course, Georgetown football has been an afterthought since the days when they were called the Stonewalls.

Update: Holy Exit 9! Rutgers is ranked.
