The 2021 college football season started with a bang last week and Week 2 acted as a dramatic sequel. Michigan’s 31:10 win over Washington was a formidable confirmation of what seventh-year Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh has built in the trenches. Michigan ran 343 yards on 56 tries, averaging 6.1 yards per carry against one of the Pac-12’s best defenses, to improve to 2-0 and plead for next week’s AP Top 25.
For Washington, the loss was another indication that the program lacks an offensive focus. A week after the FCS lost to Montana, the normally physique huskies ran 50 yards on 32 tries when a Michigan defense line led by defensive end Aidan Hutchinson wreaked havoc.
Harbaugh’s former program, Stanford, also scored a huge win when Cardinal # 14 outlasted USC 42-28 on the road, despite entering as a 17-point underdog a week after losing to Kansas State. The loss will be a devastating setback to USC hopes of repeating itself as the Pac-12 South champion and finding national relevance. However, the Trojans weren’t the only Pac-12 South team struggling Saturday night when No. 21 Utah fell 26:17 on BYU. The Cougars win ended a nine-game winning streak in Utah in the series, leaving Utah 1-1.
