Week 1 of the college football season was filled with plenty of exciting plays and memorable moments. Some teams had impressive season debuts while others were major disappointments. These five teams were the most disappointing from this past weekend's action, some even in victory.

The Red Raiders, a dark horse team to win the Big 12, needed all 60 minutes to defeat Central Arkansas from the FCS 42-35. The offense, led by Davis Webb, was impressive as always with 636 total yards, but the defense looked suspect once again. The Red Raiders gave up 406 total yards to Central Arkansas, including 178 on the ground. If the defense doesn't improve quickly, the Red Raiders will lose to an underrated UTEP team this week.

Chris Petersen's debut with the Washington Huskies was rather unimpressive. Ranked No. 25 to begin the game, the Huskies defeated Hawaii, a 1-11 team a season ago, 17-16. The Huskies were shut out in the second half and gave up 217 rushing yards to the Warriors.

UCLA was expected to be a dark horse contender for the college football playoff, but after their performance against Virginia, the Bruins are not even close to being contenders. Against Virginia, UCLA used three defensive touchdowns to escape with a 28-20 win. UCLA's offense struggled all day as QB Brett Hundley was constantly pressured. The Bruins were also undisciplined, committing 12 penalties in the game.

Leading 24-7 against the LSU Tigers, Wisconsin further proved that the Big Ten is inferior to the SEC by losing 28-24. What's most shocking about this loss was that Melvin Gordon, who torched the Tigers' defense in the first half, had all but three carries in the second half. Wisconsin's passing game continued to struggle as new starter Tanner McEvoy threw for just 50 yards and two interceptions.

South Carolina did not just lose at home to Texas A&M -- they were demolished. With Kenny Hill replacing Johnny Manziel, the Aggies ended the Gamecocks' 18-game home winning streak with a convincing 52-28 win last Thursday. South Carolina's defense gave up 680 yards, a school record, and gave up 511 yards passing, the most ever by a Steve Spurrier-coached team.
