If for some reason Ohio State does go out this Saturday and beat Oklahoma by an impressive margin then I may change my mindset about where Ohio State is ranked but I don't feel they are a #2 team currently. This game will also be a good test to see how they could stack up against the rest of the powers in the Big 10. Michigan lost a ton of talent but they look good, Penn State looks to have picked up from where they left off last year. I don't think Ohio State is going to roll through the Big 10 this year and the game Saturday will give everyone in the country a glimpse into the rest of the season for the Buckeyes.

The Tide came in ranked as the #1 team in the country playing against the #3 team in the country. This is the first time in several years two teams ranked in the Top 5 played against each other in the first game of the year. The first half wasn't much to write home except a true freshman being one on one against one of the best WR in the country in Calvin Ridley and was burnt for a beautiful pass for a TD from Jalen Hurts. Other than that the first half wasn't memorable other than finding out we are hurting for kickers.
The second half showed alot of promise for the Tide. The defense had been flirting with picking off Florida State's QB and they finally did in the second half. I hate very much that their QB went down towards the end of the game and that he is out for the rest of the year. I just hope it doesn't ruin Florida State's season. This was a great game to watch especially in person.
The new Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta is marvel of architectural wonder. The outside looks amazing and the way the dome reacts is a site to behold but one of the most impressive features about the stadium other than a ton of food vendors is the halo video board that is the largest one in the world.
