The 2014-15 NCAA Division I FBS season just began on August 27th and it will wrap up on December 13th, 2014. The post season will be from December 20, 2014 – January 12, 2015 (excluding all-star games) including a total of 39 bowl games.
WEEK 1 of the NCAA Football season delivered some very interesting news which include:
- Dominating Baylor Defensive tackle Beau Blackshear got the additional sack for the final play of the third quarter. That was initially ruled a team fumble for SMU and a tackle for loss. SMU quarterback Neal Burcham dropped the snap before recovering and going back to pass. Blackshear tackled him for a 12-yard loss. A review of the game tape and the NCAA rule book confirmed that Blackshear should have also been credited with a sack. Baylor also had nine sacks in a 1983 game against UTEP. source: espn.com

- UCLA running back Steven Manfro left the practice field on a cart Tuesday after apparently injuring his knee. Manfro is a part of the No. 11 Bruins’ three-tailback rotation along with Paul Perkins and Jordon James. He will undergo an MRI exam to determine the extent of his injury. Manfro had two carries for minus-5 yards as the Bruins’ running game struggled in their season opener at Virginia. The junior also returned kickoffs last season. Freshman Nate Starks is likely to assume an increased role if Manfro’s injury is significant, but the Bruins have plenty of work to do in their running game no matter who ends up carrying the ball. Manfro is a versatile back and a passing target, although he dropped two passes at Virginia. source: espn.com
- The transfer from Texas Tech is now the Hokies’ starting quarterback, and he’ll have a chance to help show Virginia Tech is still an elite program on Saturday night when the Hokies take on No. 8 Ohio State at Ohio Stadium. The Hokies are no stranger to the big stage, but have struggled to show they belong in recent years. Since winning 10 of 15 games against ranked opponents from 2008-11, they have lost six of the last seven. Brewer figures they could change that in one night. The Buckeyes (1-0) have won 25 consecutive regular season games, longest in the nation, and 64 in a row at home against unranked non-conference foes. source: espn.com
- Preston Smith’s career is an example of how Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen likes to develop players. The defensive end was a lightly regarded recruit — at least by Southeastern Conference standards — and then started his career anonymously as a backup lineman. He slowly earned more time on the field as he got stronger, and now the 6-foot-6, 270-pound senior is one of the best players on a loaded Bulldogs’ defensive line. He made his presence felt in the Bulldogs’ opener. Smith, named SEC defensive lineman of the week, intercepted a pass and later blocked a field goal attempt that was returned by teammate Jay Hughes for a touchdown during Mississippi State’s 49-0 over Southern Mississippi. source: espn.com

- The Seminoles avoided a scare from a gritty Oklahoma State team and tied a school record with their 17th straight win. Quarterback Jameis Winston threw an uncharacteristic two interceptions, but his dazzling 28-yard touchdown run changed the game and led to the 37-31 win. source: espn.com
