Football season is off to an exciting start.
Last week saw some shocking outcomes take place.
Here’s a look at some of the interesting college and NFL matchups from the weekend.
Syracuse 30 Florida St 7
This was not a marquee matchup, but still a shocking result.
The Seminoles came into the season with high expectations.
But new head coach Willie Taggart has had a nightmare start to his tenure.
The Noles lost to Syracuse for the first time since 1966.
And Florida St was coming off an embarrassing win against FCS opponent Samford.
The Noles better get it together quickly, or Taggart could have a shocking one-year tenure.
BYU 24 Wisconsin 21
The Badgers suffered a big blow when they lost to the Cougars at Camp Randall.
They had a chance to tie the game but missed a field goal wide left as time expired.
It was Wisconsin’s first home loss against a non-conference opponent since 2003.
The loss will surely knock the #6 Badgers out of the top 10.
As for BYU, it was their first win over a top 10 team since 2009 when they defeated Oklahoma and Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford.
LSU 22 Auburn 21
Auburn joined Wisconsin as the other top 10 team to lose a nailbiter at home on a last-second field goal.
The 7th ranked Tigers lost to the #12 Bayou Bengals in a dramatic 4th quarter.
LSU trailed 21-10 but clawed their way to an upset.
This is now LSU’s second victory over a top 10 opponent this year.

Kansas City 42 Pittsburgh 37
The Chiefs are now 2-0 behind the stellar play of second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
The young signal caller showed so much promise, the Chiefs were comfortable moving on from veteran Alex Smith.
Mahomes has not only been great, he’s been historic.
Mahomes set an NFL record by throwing 10 touchdowns in the first two games of a season.
He also defeated future Hall of Fame quarterbacks Philip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger in the process.
The Chiefs have the most explosive offense in the league.
Nobody wants to play them right now.
Minnesota 29 Green Bay 29
The bitter division rivals finished with a tie that neither team is happy about.
Both teams came off emotional week one wins, and both teams blew opportunities to take control of the division.
If Minnesota had won in Green Bay, they would’ve been in the driver’s seat in the NFC North.
But they were behind the eight ball from the start.
Despite suffering a blocked punt for a touchdown and several key drops, the Vikings fought back to force overtime.
But rookie kicker Daniel Carlson missed two kicks in overtime, including a 35-yarder with no time left.
L.A. Chargers 31 Buffalo 20
The game was unremarkable but had one of the most shocking occurrences in sports history.
The Buffalo Bills are bad.
They might be the worst team in the league.
They followed up their embarrassing 47-3 with a double-digit home loss to the Chargers.
The Bills are so bad, cornerback Vontae Davis retired from the league at halftime.
