Every Sunday, Tom Fornelli and I sit down to try and make sense of everything we just witnessed in college football. It's our favorite plays, players, moments and performances mixed together with bad jokes and sleep deprivation; also known as the Rewind Podcast.

While Florida State, Alabama and Auburn avoided upsets to remain in their position as the top teams in the country, each contender has some weaknesses to address as the season moves forward -- and that uncertainty is one reason we are happy football is back.

Todd Gurley made a statement as one of the best players in all of college football as Georgia pulled away from Clemson in the second half, USC made us forget Josh Shaw with a Pac-12 record 100+ offensive plays and we try to figure out what went wrong for Wisconsin in its second-half collapse against LSU -- a movie that we've seen from Les Miles too many times.

Plus: grading J.T. Barrett's first start for Ohio State , Texas A&M's offensive explosion against South Carolina, reasons to be excited about Notre Dame's offense with Everett Golson back in the mix and much, much more.
