2020 Week 2 saw lots of pupsets in the college football world.
2020 Week 2 saw a lot of pupsets in the world of college football. Some of these included the canine schools among the NCAA Division I.
More schools opened their seasons this weekend, though every week remains in liquid form schedule-wise due to the pandemic.
As always, the dogs of Instagram were out in full force wearing their favorite team’s bandannas, collars and T-shirts as they cheered from the living room.
Conference USA’s Louisiana Tech Bulldogs were supposed to start their season in 2020 Week 2 in Waco, Texas, on Saturday morning, September 12, but their visit to the Big 12’s Baylor Bears was postponed due to a COVID outbreak among the Tech team.
Instead, the Sun Belt Conference’s Arkansas State Red Wolves took that morning-game spot on Fox as they played on the road at Kansas State, and in a game filled with mistakes and momentum swings, Arkansas State rallied back from a 21-7 deficit to triumph 35-31, improving to 1-1 on the season.
The Citadel Bulldogs of the FCS Southland Conference played the South Florida Bulls of the American Athletic Conference in Miami, falling by a respectable 27-6 score.
The Citadel’s conference cousins in the Huskies of Houston Baptist nearly pulled off a colossal pupset of their own, as they narrowly lost 35-33 to the Big 12’s Texas Tech Red Raiders in Lubbock.
Houston Baptist falls to 0-2 on the season, and their only other game of the 2020 college football season is scheduled for Saturday, September 26 against Louisiana Tech. Still, they played very well in their two games thus far.
Finally, the No. 14 Texas Longhorns welcomed the UTEP Miners to Austin and obliterated them 59-3.. Why are we mentioning this game, other than Bevo nearly ran over the Georgia Bulldogs‘s mascot Uga during the 2019 Sugar Bowl? Because they had pets as fan cutouts in the stands, which is fun.
