GAME OF THE DAY: TCU 17, No. 7 Oklahoma 10
TCU vs. Oklahoma
THE GAME: This was an easy choice. It's only week one, and the Horned Frogs pulled off what will surely turn out to be one of the biggest upsets of the year. The TCU defense held 2004 Heisman runner-up Adrian Peterson to 63 yards on 22 carries and made first-time starting quarterback Paul Thompson look like... well -- a first-time starter. Hopefully for the Texas faithful, the Longhorns were taking notes.
PLAYER OF THE DAY: D.J. Shockley, QB, Georgia
Boise State 13
THE PLAYER: For three years, heralded prospect D.J. Shockley sat on the bench behind Georgia hero David Greene. Entering Saturday's game, any Heisman talk surrounded opposing quarterback Jared Zabransky. None of that mattered. Shockley torched the No. 18 Broncos for six touchdowns, matching Zabransky's six first-half turnovers, in a 48-13 Georgia win. He was dead-on with his passing, hitting 16-of-24 attempts for 289 yards and added 85 yards on the ground. If he keeps this up, Georgia fans can rest easier with the loss of Greene.
MOMENT OF THE DAY: Clemson Game-Winning FG
Texas A&M 24
THE MOMENT: Clemson kicker Jad Dean made a strong case for player of the day honors. But we just couldn't justify awarding it to a kicker (apologies to any place-kickers reading this). Hopefully this is a good consolation prize. After hitting on 4-of-4 field goal attempts throughout the game, the Clemson offense gave Dean a chance to really prove his mettle. And he came through -- nailing a 42-yard field goal with two seconds left to clinch a 25-24 upset of the 17th-ranked Aggies.
