Its the college football off-season and while college football never sleeps, it's tough waiting to watch 2014 play out on the gridiron. Last month, we took a look back at week one of the 2013 season. Now let's take a look back at week two of the 2013 season and some highlights and key games….


Miami (FL) 21 Florida 16

The Hurricanes grabbed an early lead and Florida's stagnant offense could not come from behind. This was just an early sign of things to come for the Gators in 2013.

BYU 40 Texas 21

#15 Texas was no match for the Cougars running attack on this day. BYU QB Taysom Hill ran for 259 yards and the Cougars rolled up 550 yards on the ground in their surprising decimation of the Longhorns. This would be the last game for Texas Defensive Coordinator Manny Diaz.

Georgia 41 South Carolina 30 

One week after losing at Clemson by three points, the Bulldogs hosted a dangerous top ten team in South Carolina. Led by Aaron Murray's four TDs and Todd Gurley's 132 yards rushing, the Dawgs were able to get into the win column for the first time in 2013. While this was a very early game, it's also one of the two games that kept South Carolina out of the SEC Championship despite the Gamecocks win later in the season over SEC East Champion Missouri.

Michigan 41 Notre Dame 30

Over 115,000 fans packed into the Big House for this rivalry game. Devon Gardner led Michigan to a big win and ensured that Notre Dame would not be back in the National Championship Game. A late interception by Blake Countess sealed the deal for the Wolverines.
