Morning Six Pack: September 2, 2012

imageWhat a glorious start to the 2012 season! Enjoy these six college football stories from around the country.

Alabama Rewriting the Records

Alabama set five Cowboys Classic records in the first half of Saturday night's game.

Auburn unable to make key drive, stop

A new-look Auburn offense couldn't convert in the red zone. The defense couldn't stop the run. Meanwhile, Tajh Boyd, Andre Ellington and Clemson carved up a defense that couldn't stop the run.

Going behind the scenes for a coaching debut

Gus Malzahn takes Arkansas State into Eugene to face No. 5 Oregon and comes out learning more about himself and his team.

Buckeyes Enter the Urban-Age with 56-10 Win

Urban Meyer began his coaching career at Columbus with a 56-10 win against the University of Miami (Ohio). It was a slow start but in the end Braxton Miller shined, leading the Buckeye offense with 368 total yards.

Texas A&M getting started one week late

At least Missouri got to warm up. The SEC's other new member, Texas A&M, has to jump directly into its league schedule.


Michigan was pounded into submission by a team far superior in every way. It was a game marked by brutality, and the Wolverines simply didn't have the fortitude to match up.

Coach Brady Hoke said throughout the offseason this game would be a measuring stick for his program, which was coming off an 11-2 season. Turns out, reality wasn't as sweet as perception.

Michigan had a nice season last year, and some thought it was back among college football's royalty. But it is not.
