Mike Granse-USA TODAY Sports

College football is finally back. And after some intriguing Thursday and Friday night matchups, the first Saturday of the season was upon us. The finish of the day had to be BYU's game-winning Hail Mary touchdown pass to stun Nebraska, but matchups like TCU-Minnesota and Washington-Boise State also made a strong case for most thrilling. The top teams in the country were able to hold their ground this week, but there was a lot of shifting beneath them.
