Tough loss for Chris Petersen, especially to have a chance there at the end. But he made the rounds seeking out Boise players and coaches afterward. All class.

Oregon State's bid to replace the graduated Sean Mannion began with a competition of 7 quarterbacks this past spring. Over half a year later, a victor has finally been named. True freshman Seth Collins is the Beavers' starter following an explosive dual threat performance in a 26-7 win over Weber State. He struggled early, but ultimately racked up 152 rushing yards and 2 passing touchdowns -- including a perfect 44-yard deep strike to Jordan Villamin. Oregon State wasn't great Friday, but the multifaceted explosiveness of their new young quarterback should generate optimism.

Captain Shilique Calhoun says Michigan State's effort tonight is "definitely not" good enough to beat Oregon. "This is the first game. This is where you work the kinks out," Calhoun said.

Washington's defense responded with a couple of plays in the second quarter to keep Boise State from running away with the game, but the Huskies have been anything but stingy on defense. Remember, they had three eventual first-rounders on defense last season and still finished 80th nationally in total defense.

Boise State gets tricky

Facing off against its former coach, the Broncos pulled off a WR pass from Thomas Sperbeck to Holden Huff, who made a diving catch for a 23-yard gain. Boise State leads Washington 13-0 on ESPN.

SMU head coach Chad Morris, after his Mustangs took No. 4 Baylor deep into the third quarter before losing, 56-21: "Those (players) that might have been wavering, which might not have been many, I think they believe now."

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Baylor QB Seth Russell: "We did a lot of things right and we did a lot of things wrong. In the first game, you're going to have that type of deal." Said Bears "hit a lull" in second quarter as SMU changed defenses. Despite 5 TD passes and 59 rush yards, Russell grades his performance as "subpar."

McNichols plunges in for second TD

RB Jeremy McNichols has both of the Broncos' scores on the night and Boise State leads 14-0 over Washington in the second quarter on ESPN.

Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio says he's confident his defense can fix some the problems it had against Western Michigan. "We made some mistakes that have to be cleaned up, but that happens in the first week," he said. No. 5 Michigan State hosts Oregon next weekend in East Lansing.

Art Briles unsure of LB Taylor Young's status. Young left the game in the first half with a collarbone issue. The initial X-Rays weren't definitive, Briles doesn't know if there's a fracture. Will retake X-rays. Young would be a significant loss for Bears defense.
