After an off-season filled with scandal and controversy, seeing college football back on the field was a welcome sight. While early season games for Top 25 teams often feature blowouts of lesser opponents (and we certainly had several of those), this week we were also treated to a pair of matchups between Top 25 teams as well as some outstanding individual efforts. Some questions were answered, other teams now have even more. Here is a recap of all the action in the Top 25 this weekend.

The Penn State Board of Trustees announced Thursday it is firing longtime football coach Joe Paterno, as well as university president Graham Spanier. Both officials are accused of not reporting to police knowledge of sexual abuses against children by a member of their staff.

This was a big week for football fans, with a lot of important action on the field. Once again, several teams made their case for why they should be #1, as LSU and Oklahoma won big over ranked opponents and Alabama pitched another shutout. Here are all the highlights from around the Top 25.
The Boise State football program has been placed on three years’ probation and stripped of nine scholarships (three each for the next three years) after being hit with NCAA sanctions for repeated rules violations regarding extra benefits for recruits and players.
While many of this weekend’s games were just tune-ups for showdowns to come, there were several great battles to keep things exciting, including Michigan’s last-second win over Notre Dame, South Carolina’s shootout victory over Georgia and Auburn stuffing Mississippi State at the goal line to win their 17th straight game.
