Vernon Davis Denied on Goalpost Dunk Attempt

After one week, the San Francisco 49ers look like the class of the NFC as they beat the Green Bay Packers by the score of 30-22. 49ers tight end Vernon Davis got his first score of the season in the third quarter as he hauled a pass from Alex Smith in the left corner of the end zone.

Week One told us a few things. Like that Alabama is really, really good.

This week, we don’t have any matchups between ranked schools, but we do have some intriguing games that should tell us a bit more about some of these teams. Wisconsin, Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Florida all have challenging road games against BCS-conference opponents. Oklahoma and Stanford, who struggled last week, will try to work out some kinks. Missouri and Texas A&M get their first tastes of life in the SEC. Poor Savannah State will be obliterated by another Top 25 team. And Alabama and Arkansas can set up the first top 10 matchup of the season.

Here is what to look for this week in college football:
