Tebow sees championship or bust for Lawrence, Clemson (1:26)

Tim Tebow breaks down why he feels Trevor Lawrence and Clemson will have to be competing for a championship to define this season as a success. (1:26)

Week 2 welcomed the ACC and Big 12 into the college football fold in 2020, and all of the heavy hitters from those conferences lived up to the hype.

Trevor Lawrence and Clemson traveled Saturday to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and ran over Wake Forest 37-13, while Oklahoma needed its starting quarterback for only the first half in a 48-0 rout of Missouri State in Norman. New Sooners quarterback Spencer Rattler went 14-for-17 in the first half for 290 yards and four touchdowns. Not a bad start for Lincoln Riley's new signal-caller.

Texas also impressed on Saturday with a big win over UTEP in Austin. Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger threw for five touchdowns in the opener, and his experience will be key to the Longhorns' College Football Playoff hopes this season.

With the SEC off until Sept. 26 the lists remain largely unchanged, but there are some surprises this week, including Army making its first appearance this season.
