No game's outcome is a given -- that's why they're played, after all -- but a lot would have to go wrong for a big-time program like Ohio State to lose against a team, like, say, Florida A&M. Pretty much nothing went wrong, of course, and Ohio State beat FAMU 76-0. That wasn't even the only 70-point performance this weekend -- Louisville beat Florida International 72-0, Baylor knocked off Louisiana-Monroe 70-7, and Miami dispatched Savannah State 77-7. Ivan Maisel gave faint praise to the teams taking advantage of easy schedules this weekend, but cupcake scheduling does have its benefits. Those teams didn't go up against a bunch of top-25 behemoths for nothing, after all (Ohio St. paid FAMU $900,000, for example, and Miami paid Savannah State $375,000 for their matchup).
