On the NCAAFB podcast with Michelle:

1. The Old Dominion Monarchs shocked the visiting No. 13 Virginia Tech with a 49-35 upset. Old Dominion quarterback Blake LaRussa came off the bench to throw for 495 yards and four touchdowns.

2. So far, 18 walk-ons have taken Michigan in the first two games of the season. Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has been pleased with the walk-ons. After all, these guys took the toughest path possible for life-changing opportunities.

3. Once again, college football has proved that it’s more than a game. Iowa State honored the late female golfer Celia Barquin Arozamena (1996-2018) before their game versus Akron, who they defeated 26-13. Also, University of Maryland sported special helmet decals to honor the late offensive lineman Jordan McNair, who was 19 years old and reportedly didn’t get the best care for his heat stroke over the offseason. In addition, four BYU players had jerseys with the last name Kaufusi to honor their paternal grandfather, Petelo Kaufusi, who passed away last week at the age of 79. Seven of Kaufusi’s eight children played college football for BYU or Utah.
