After further review: Week 1
• Taysom Hill has once again been lost for the season, which means that he is unfortunately done at the collegiate level. BYU's exciting win on a last-second Hail Mary over Nebraska came at a huge cost, as preseason Heisman Trophy contender Hill suffered a mild sprained ankle early in the game but was able to eventually return. However, in the fourth quarter, Hill slid short of the first-down marker on a third-and-long play, and he ultimately limped off the field and went to the locker room. After throwing for 268 yards, rushing for 72 more and accounting for three scores, he left the game with a Lisfranc foot fracture. Hill has been one of the more exciting players in recent BYU memory, and it's a shame that college football fans were unable to see a healthy Hill throughout his career. Backup Tanner Mangum finished up the game and tossed the Hail Mary pass to Mitch Matthews that won the game for the Cougars. By the way, BYU’s win in Lincoln snapped Nebraska’s 29-game winning streak in season openers, which dated back to 1985. Florida now has the longest active streak in FBS at 25 games.
• In addition to Hill being out for the year, star Pitt running back James Conner will miss the season as well. He left Saturday's 45-37 win over Youngstown State after tearing his MCL. He was the centerpiece of the Panthers' offense last season, as he rushed nearly 300 times for 1,765 yards and 26 touchdowns.• Penn State's offensive line remains a disaster. After being battered and bruised throughout the 2014 campaign, quarterback Christian Hackenberg was sacked 10 more times -- 10! -- in a brutal 27-10 loss to Temple, which received three sacks from linebacker Tyler Matakevich. The last time the Nittany Lions lost to the Owls was in 1941, a stretch that covered 39 games. • One of the more impressive starts to the season that went a bit under the radar came from West Virginia, which held last year's No. 1 rushing offense scoreless. Sure, Georgia Southern was breaking in a new offensive line and was without quarterback Kevin Ellison (two-game suspension), but the Mountaineers' 44-0 win came against an Eagles team that hung tight with N.C. State and Georgia Tech last year in its first season of FBS competition. WVU safety Karl Joseph led a strong secondary with three interceptions, and this is expected to be Dana Holgorsen's strongest defensive unit yet in Morgantown as the 'Neers brought back nine starters on that side of the ball. • Vernon Adams made his Oregon debut on Saturday, completing 19 of 25 passes for 246 yards and two touchdowns and rushing 14 times for 94 yards in a 61-42 win over his former team, Eastern Washington. But he had an injury scare after taking a cheap shot in the fourth quarter. He was given a concussion test in the locker room and said he would be ready for the showdown on Saturday at Michigan State. • Syracuse received a brutal blow when quarterback Terrel Hunt was lost for the year after suffering a torn Achilles tendon Friday in a 47-0 win over Rhode Island. This is the second consecutive season ended by injury for the senior captain. Last year, Hunt started the first five games for the Orange before suffering a season-ending broken leg. True freshman Eric Dungey, who completed 10 of 17 passes for 114 yards and two scores in relief, is expected to get the start in the team's ACC opener against Wake Forest. Meanwhile, Syracuse is expected to apply for a sixth year of eligibility for Hunt. • The Everett Golson era in Tallahassee started out strong, as the former Notre Dame quarterback completed 19 of 25 passes for 302 yards and four touchdowns in Florida State's 59-16 win over Texas State. He should be in store for a big year as long as he protects the football, which was his No. 1 issue last year in South Bend. • It's great to see Bowling Green's Matt Johnson healthy again. The quarterback, who missed last season due to injury, threw for 424 yards in a 59-30 loss to Tennessee, which had 399 rushing yards in the game. The Vols have to shore up that pass defense, though, as they prepare to face Oklahoma and new offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley this week. • William Likely is ridiculous. The Maryland cornerback had four total touchdowns (on two interceptions, one punt return and one kickoff return) last season, and he started off the 2015 season with a bang. In a 50-21 win over Richmond on Saturday, he returned eight punts for 233 yards, including a 67-yard score.
