Best debut by a new head coach (non-Deion division): Jeff Brohm (29), Louisville. Opening with a league game against Georgia Tech in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Brohm’s Cardinals fell behind 28–13 and appeared powerless to stop the Yellow Jackets. Then they ran off 26 unanswered points to take control, with California transfer quarterback Jack Plummer settling down and Georgia State transfer receiver Jamari Thrash (88 receiving yards and two touchdowns) making big plays. For a fan base hungering for the Brohm homecoming and sweating though the first half of it, the second half was cathartic.

—The size of the crowd seems to be the hottest talking point heading into tonight’s matchup with Murray State.

—And finally, beat Murray State.
