It was an incredible first week of college football for everyone in the state and, heck, the country.

Freshman Tanner Mangum played campus hero for BYU, relieving injured Taysom Hill to lead BYU to a 33-28 win over Nebraska on a last-second touchdown throw. Meanwhile, the Utes topped Michigan 24-17 and are now ranked No. 24 in the Associated Press poll and No. 25 in the Amway Coaches Poll.

Then there's Utah State, who takes on Utah this Friday, they squeaked past Southern Utah 12-9. DeseretNews.com writer Brandon Judd joins host Carter Williams in this week's edition of the Deseret News Sports podcast to break down the memorable week. You will also hear from Mangum, as he adjusts from backup to life in the spotlight — and also how he's gearing up for BYU's game Saturday against his hometown Boise State Broncos.

They also give their first impressions of the new season on a national level, as well as the biggest overreactions of the young year.
