The wild fox in Baylor's stadiumBefore Baylor lost to Liberty (yes, you read that correctly), fans had another problem to worry about. Inside McLane Stadium, a wild fox was seen (and video-taped) running through the bleachers. Apparently, this problem is nothing new for the Big 12, as foxes have also been spotted inside multiple Texas Tech games.
Spotted: Cam Newton's long-lost twinDuring Saturday's game between No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 Florida State, fans couldn't help but draw comparisons between FSU's quarterback Deondre Francois and NFL player Cam Newton. But not because of their styles of play - simply because of how they look while wearing a helmet. Seriously, it's like magic. Helmet off: no resemblance.

Unfortunately, Francois left the game late in the 4th quarter due to an apparent left knee injury. The severity of the injury is still unknown. Losing their starting quarterback in the opening game of the season would be a devastating loss for the Seminoles. Knee injuries are nothing to mess around with, so here's to a speedy recovery for Francois. In other news, Cam Newton actually does have a brother currently playing college football. And where was he last night? Caylin Newton was leading his team to the biggest upset in college football history. The younger Newton, who plays QB for Howard University in Washington, D.C., completed 15 of his 26 passes for 140 yards, ran for 190 yards and had three touchdowns and one interception. Howard closed as a 45.5-point underdog, but Newton and his team came out victorious with a final score of 43-40 over UNLV.

Alabama's Raekwon Davis rallies after "minor" injuryThat is... if you call a gunshot wound "minor." The defensive lineman was shot in the right leg last Sunday morning in Tuscaloosa, according to local authorities. Still, the sophomore is a key component for the Tide's defense and found a way to play against Florida State less than a week later. Not only did he play, but he also recorded a sack.
Former Kentucky native and UK target Damien Harris also took the college football world by storm, racking up a blocked punt and an 11-yard TD run in Bama's 24-7 victory over FSU. Here's the touchdown:

In case you missed it...Louisville is still being Louisville. This doesn't even fit into "weird, wacky and wonderful." It's just gross.
Jeff Badet impresses at OklahomaThe former Kentucky player made his debut for the Sooners last night, and he definitely delivered. Badet recorded four catches for 91 yards, making him the second most productive receiver for Oklahoma Saturday night. The senior helped OU easily defeat UTEP 56-7
Did I cover everything? Did you see something else that's weird, wacky or wonderful? Let me know! College football is back, and I know we couldn't be happier.
