There were plenty of incredible team and individual performances in Week 1 that opened some eyes and surprised people. There were upsets galore like unranked Texas beating then-No. 10 Notre Dame and Houston owning Oklahoma.
There were great individual performances as well like Florida State's Deondre Francois throwing for 419 yards and leading his team to the largest comeback in school history. Georgia's Nick Chubb had 222 yards rushing in his first game since tearing his ACL almost a year ago and it help the Dawgs beat UNC in the Georgia Dome.
Louisville's Lamar Jackson set a school record for touchdowns in a game in the first half and defensive lineman DeMarcus Walker had 4.5 sacks in the game to keep Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly under control. Herbstreit thinks all of these things were impressive and named his top performances from the first week of college football:
Wisconsin might have had the best upset as the 16-14 win over then-No. 5 LSU catapulted the Badgers into the top 10 of the AP Poll. Texas over Notre Dame was also the biggest win of the Charlie Strong era and Alabama absolutely demolishing USC was unexpected and quite pleasant if you're tired of the Trojans trying to make their football program happen.
