TCU QB Trevone Boykin: "No game is going to be easy. We're the No. 2 team in the country and we're going to get everybody's best swing. We have to counterpunch."

Duke coach David Cutcliffe has to be happy with what he saw out of his young Blue Devils in a 37-7 road win over Tulane. There was balance on offense, good leadership from new starter Thomas Sirk and solid play up front -- an area that has been cause for concern. Plus, DeVon Edwards had another kickoff return for TD. Solid 2015 debut for Duke.

Arizona's big block helps keep lead secure

Openers are tricky and Trevone Boykin will be better but opponents will study Minnesota's blueprint against TCU offense. If you have veteran, physical defensive backs, tackle in space, and make TCU earn everything, you can hang around. Really good job by Tracy Claeys and the Minnesota defensive staff. Gophers will definitely contend in the Big Ten west. They were my pick to win it.

Minnesota strikes late, within a TD

No. 2 TCU has managed just 23 points tonight, which has allowed the Golden Gophers to hang around. An 8-play, 91-yard scoring drive has the score at 23-17, but Minnesota is running out of time, with just over 90 seconds left in regulation. Watch live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Jim Harbaugh's message to his team following the 24-17 loss to Utah was pretty simple. He congratulated his players for fighting hard, saw a ton of things the Wolverines can improve on and that one loss won't define them.

Ohio runs all over the Vandals

A 21-point first quarter put Ohio up early, and Kylan Nelson sealed things with a late TD run in a 45-28 win over Idaho.


Harbaugh's less-than-stellar debuts

Jim Harbaugh has lost in each of his first games with a new team. Interestingly, his teams have each scored 17 points in those debuts.

TCU has points taken off the board

Duke is playing with an entirely retooled front seven, making its performance against Tulane even more impressive. With five new starters along the line and at linebacker, Duke has held the Green Wave scoreless with 2:28 to go in the third quarter, allowing just 167 yards and two third-down conversions.

Utah's 24-17 win over Michigan was far from distinguished, but putting the Jim Harbaugh circus behind it with a W can't feel too bad. The solid play of QB Travis Wilson also is encouraging for the the Utes in the rugged Pac12 South. For Michigan, Utes are 3rd best team on schedule, behind Michigan State and Ohio State. So there's hope.

Bright spot for Michigan in its 24-17 loss: The Wolverines have some playmakers in the passing game. Wide receiver Amara Darboh led the team with eight catches for 101 yards and a score. Tight end Jake Butt caught eight passes for 93 yards and a score. It wasn't clear what options Michigan would have among its pass-catchers heading into the season.
