college football. and i watched plenty of it. all or part of five games and that was just saturday. then you had the incredible finish between texas and notre dame last night in double overtime. texas winning 50-47. and i think college football has done something that is very tough to do. and it asks the question. how does the nfl top this? this was advertised as the best opening weekend in college football history. and they delivered. i felt like they stole a page out of the ncaa basketball all we needed was johnson doing the announcing. blowouts like ohio state and michigan and alabama, who by the way looked very good saturday night. you had surprise and cinderellas. oklahoma losing to a good houston team. and the big 10 getting respect when unranked wisconsin beat lsu. and incredible finishes, including that double overtime game last night. i give college football a lot of credit. they are finally getting it right by scheduling top teams
the season. how big disohio state oklahoma look in two weeks? don't get me wrong. i love the nfl. it is the best league in america. but it will be tough to top what i watched this weekend. tweet me your thoughts at john @ wkyc. >> did you see the finish to truck racing in ontario? this is wild. cole custer trying to keep up the lead into the wall and given the win. and cole custer was not happy about it. and custer went after him. and this might be the best tacklingof the weekend. even with all of the college football. the two drivers had to be separated. and we will see what race officials do with these two but nemechek is declared the winner of the race. wow. a massive recall is under way forbe the new sam sung galaxy note 7s.
