Sixteen of the 31 wins by the FBS vs. FCS this past weekend were by five touchdowns or more, but only two games (Utah over Weber State, 70-7; Troy over Savannah State 66-3) had a wider margin of victory.
Weak opponent. Strong results.

The 84,692 that watched Oklahoma's win over WVU on Saturday was the 11th largest crowd to watch a Mountaineers football game.
Four of those top 11 crowds have happened in the past five seasons. The other seven came in seasons from 1981-1991.
The largest crowd to ever watch WVU play (101,851) occurred last season when the Mountaineers won at Texas, 48-45. That is one of only two wins for West Virginia when playing in front of crowds of 75,000 or larger. The other was the 1982 visit to Norman, Okla., when the Mountaineers beat the Sooners, 41-27.
WVU is now 1-15 in games played in front of crowds of 80,000 or larger.

Remember A.J. Graham?
The former Florida Mr. Football redshirted during Mark Snyder's final season at Marshall and then had two injury-shortened seasons before he was dismissed from the Herd program in March 2012. Graham, you might recall, wrested the QB job away from Rakeem Cato midway through the 2011 season, and then started three games in a row before getting knocked out of 59-17 loss at Tulsa on Nov. 12, 2011.
Cato, the nation's top passer last season, has started every game since.
Graham is now part of a two-quarterback system at the University of Pikeville (Ky.), where he made his debut last Thursday against Bluefield State. He was 7-for-10 passing for 91 yards and a touchdown, while rushing nine times for 51 yards and two more scores.
