(AP Photo/Richard Shiro, File)This college football season is already so odd that it’s unclear whether this is Week 1 or Week 2. 1 Clemson and Trevor Lawrence begin their season at Wake Forest, a solid opportunity for the star quarterback and preseason Heisman front-runner to launch a campaign. The Sooners' new starter is the first non-transfer to begin the season as QB1 since before Trevor Knight in 2014. One coach who could really use a win to start this season, though, is Les Miles of Kansas.
Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin at Houston Touchdown Club
HOUSTON – Texas A&M Aggies head ooach Kevin Sumlin was in Houston on Thursday to visit with supporters at the Houston Touchdown Club. Sumlin met with the media and answered questions from the crowd at the annual luncheon. As expected, Sumlin mentioned the race for a starting quarterback is still ongoing as they move through the summer and approach fall camp. Sumlin acknowledged there was serious discussion about turning to Nick Starkel last season when starter Trevor Knight was injured and newcomer Kellen Mond is on the top recruits in the country. Sumlin also thinks the defense has plenty on board to recover from and replace what they lost with elite pass rushers Myles Garrett and Daeshon Hall.
