Most Impressive Wins in Week 1 of the College Football Season

Northwestern over Stanford  

The 21st ranked team in the country looked lethargic in their opener and may have fallen victim to the early start time (12pm EST/9am PST) that many west coast teams aren’t accustomed to when they travel east. However, a lot of credit has to be given to the effort and execution of the home team. The Northwestern Wildcats beat Stanford with their own blueprint and used their running game and stifling defense to defeat the Cardinal Saturday afternoon.  Northwestern held Stanford to under 300 yards in total offense and rushed for 225 yards themselves, led by sophomore running back Justin Jackson who rushed for 134 yards on 28 carries.
