The Mountain West pulled lots of upsets over Power Five teams in the opening weekend of college football.

College football has returned which means the cobs are back! Grab some popcorn and enjoy perusing through this week’s cob nominations.

Tulsa Running Back Corey Taylor II

Corey Taylor II made a bold prediction before Friday’s game against Michigan State.

And well let’s just say things didn’t turn out well.

Texas Cornerback Kobe Boyce

This is just straight up embarrassing. You can’t be doing that stuff against LSU next week.

Big Ten refs

How do you miss this targeting call in the Stanford/Northwestern game that knocks K.J. Costello out of the game??!! This probably won’t be the last time Big Ten refs get a cob nomination this season.


Purdue blew a 17-point lead in the 3rd quarter to Nevada. The game ends with this amazing kick from freshman walk-on Brandon Talton. He was rewarded a scholarship after the game.

Florida State

After Florida State jumped out to a 31-13 lead, Boise State rallied to score 23 unanswered points to stun the crowd in Tallahassee.


Missouri must have been thrilled when former Clemson QB Kelly Bryant decided to transfer to their school. However it didn’t stop them from losing their season opener on the road in Laramie.


The Vols were a mess. Straight up dominated by Georgia State in the 2nd half being outscored 24-6 until a late garbage time TD by Tennessee. Where does Rocky Top go from here?

Rubbing salt on the wound.

Week 1 of the 2019 College Football Season has gifted us with many great cobs but unfortunately you can only pick one.

Corn Nation only does Cobs for FBS games but I just have to share this bonus from Saint Francis redshirt freshman punter Ryan Oliver in the game against Lehigh. Look out!
