The 2021 college football season started with a bang last week and Week 2 acted as a dramatic follow-up. Michigan's 31-10 victory over Washington was an impressive endorsement of what the seventh-year Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh has built in the trenches. Michigan ran for 343 yards on 56 attempts, averaging 6.1 yards per carry against one of the Pac-12's top defenses to improve to 2-0 and make the case for inclusion in next week's AP Top 25.
For Washington, the loss was further indication that the program lacks offensive direction. A week after losing against Montana of the FCS, the normally physical Huskies ran for just 50 yards on 32 attempts as a Michigan defensive line led by defensive end Aidan Hutchinson wreaked havoc.
Harbaugh's former program, Stanford, also notched a big win as the Cardinal outlasted No. 14 USC 42-28 on the road, despite entering as 17-point underdogs a week after losing to Kansas State. The loss will be a crushing setback for USC's hopes of repeating as Pac-12 South champions and finding national relevance. However, the Trojans weren't the only Pac-12 South team to struggle Saturday night as No. 21 Utah fell 26-17 at BYU. The Cougars' victory snapped a nine-game Utah winning streak in the series and dropped Utah to 1-1.
