College football Week 2 top plays: Ohio State, Texas-Alabama, more

Week 2 of the college football season is in full swing!

Kicking things off, Deion Sanders and No. 22 Colorado are playing host to longtime rival Nebraska on “Big Noon Kickoff” (12 p.m. ET on FOX and the FOX Sports app) in the Buffaloes’ home opener. Follow all the action in Boulder here.

Meanwhile, No. 5 Ohio State is taking on Youngstown State, as the two teams meet for the first time since 2008.

Later, Iowa faces in-state rival Iowa State, followed by No. 3 Alabama welcoming No. 11 Texas to Bryant-Denny Stadium. Then, No. 13 Oregon is up against Texas Tech, with Stanford battling No. 6 USC to close things out.

Here are the top moments from Saturday’s action!

Youngstown State at No. 5 Ohio State

First to strike

The Buckeyes were on the board first after QB Kyle McCord found former high schoolmate Marvin Harrison Jr. for six.

Fake it ’til you make it

A fake hand-off gave Youngstown QB Mitch Davidson an easy run into the end zone to get the Penguins their first score of the day, which knotted things up midway through the first quarter and marked YSU’s first score all-time at Ohio Stadium.

Another one!

Harrison hauled in another deep pass for a touchdown to give the Buckeyes a 14-7 lead heading into the second quarter.

After the review

Ohio State got their third TD after a TreVeyon Henderson fumble call at the goal line was reversed.

Going for it on fourth down

The Buckeyes made it four on the day after going for it on fourth-and-1. After a short pass from McCord, Emeka Egbuka shook off a Penguins’ defender on his way to the end zone, and gave Ohio State a 28-7 lead. 

Stay tuned for updates!
