RAMBLIN' RECK: Big winner (and losers) from college football’s first weekend of action

TERRE HAUTE — Some notes and otherwise on college and high school football games played last week:

• Notre Dame was favored to beat Purdue by 11 and won by 11. That means the Irish and bookies both won on that game.

Michigan was only a 3-point pick to beat Connecticut and won 30-10.

• Missouri Valley Conference teams put tons of points on the scoreboard in their season openers.

Glad I was not keeping stats on the game played between Illlinois State and Central Missouri. The Redbirds won 55-54.

Southern Illinois also was a 70-7 winner over Quincy and Indiana State, of course, bested St. Joseph’s 57-7; Western Illinois thumped Valparaiso 45-0.

• Jacksonville State was a 49-48 winner in two overtimes at Ole Miss for one of the big upsets of the weekend.

Northwestern was a 23-21 winner at Vanderbilt in a game that was supposed to be close.

• Kentucky and Louisville both opened the season with new coaches on the sidelines in Louisville.

Kentucky won 23-16 before 55,327 fans in Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, the biggest crowd to watch a football game in Louisville.

• LSU bested North Carolina in a battle of ranked teams 30-24. Several North Carolina players were held out of the game for varying reasons.

In high school:

• Carmel defeated Center Grove 21-14 in a matchup of No. 1 and No. 2. Carmel becomes the favorite to win the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference championship but it won’t be easy in the league ranked second in the country by some high school experts.

Ben Davis bested North Central in another MIC game 21-14 and Warren Central thumped Lawrence North 40-10.

• North Putnam is 3-0 after beating Cascade 38-7 and unbeaten Linton, ranked No. 3 in Class A, was impressive in handing Wood Memorial its first setback, 45-0.

Union beat Indiana Deaf 26-14 and will go for two in a row against Tecumseh, 0-3 after losing to North Central. Zach Lyday had a very nice game for the Thunderbirds.
