The first weekend of college football gave viewers a slate of tough games, which had a lot of top teams end up in defeat.
One of Saturday’s most anticipated matchups was between the No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners and No. 15 Houston Cougars. It was a battle of Top 15 teams where the lesser-ranked opponent came out victorious.
Houston proved to the college football world that they are serious contenders with their 33-23 victory over Bob Stoops’ Sooners team.
This win may have just come in the first week of the season, but it could have a lot of implications when it comes to the College Football playoffs.
Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr. threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns. But the biggest play of the night came from Brandon Wilson.
Oklahoma attempted a 54-yard field goal and Wilson was in the end zone ready for whatever may come. When the kick fell short, the defensive back scooped the ball and ran it the length of the field to bring the Cougars up 26-17 in the third quarter.
