It's the college football off-season and odds are you are probably thinking about watching some of the NFL combine this weekend. If you are into the "Underwear Olympics" then go for it. Personally, after watching about 15 minutes of the combine I drift off into a long winter nap. Instead of watching football drills, why not watch some actual football.

We are still a bit away from spring games but let's take a look back at the 2013 season and let's start with week one. Here are some highlights and games from week one of the college football season….

Ole Miss 39 Vanderbilt 35

This was a great opening game of the 2013 season. Here's the go-ahead 75 yard TD run by Jeff Scott with just over a minute left to go in the game….

Clemson 38 Georgia 35

Todd Gurley had 154 yards and 2 TDs on just 12 carries (to bad for Georgia he missed part of this game). Here's a look at his 75 yard TD run (if you are a Georgia fan, don't watch the end of this video as star WR Malcolm Mitchell tears his ACL celebrating with Gurley)…

Not to be outdone by Gurley, Clemson's Sammy Watkins had a pretty good game as well. He caught six balls for 127 yards including this 77 yarder….

If you liked this game last year, start gearing up for the re-match between the Hedges this year (also in week one).

Florida State 41 Pittsburgh 13

The score might not indicate the importance of this game, but the final game of week one of the 2013 season gave us the debut of the eventual Heisman trophy winner Jameis Winston. Here's a look at his first TD pass as a college player…
