In our inaugural Style Archive post last week, we looked at the best and worst jersey developments in college football for '08. (SMU's white helmets were hailed as the most positive development, while Colorado's pock-marked shoulders were named the worst.)

Here, we move on to five exhibits spotted by our field observers on opening weekend:

Kevin Riley 1. Biore QB

In a win over Michigan State on Saturday night, Cal quarterback Kevin Riley made a new statement in the facial accessory department, sporting this custom No. 13 Biore Pore Strip. It allowed him to throw for 202 yards and two TDs. 

UGA 2. IceDawg

UGA VII's personal seat license entitles him to an ice-lined crate at field level for all games at Sanford Stadium. From this crate, he watched the top-ranked Dawgs rout FBS power Georgia Southern in Saturday's season opener.

NAU 3. NAUtty Nation

Safety Adam Wright (right) is an Al Harris Scholar at Northern Arizona U., studying the power of the dreadlock. Research data has indicated that Wright's dreads were not powerful enough to bring about an upset of Arizona State.

Will Muschamp 4. Blood Orange

By way of Burnt Orange Nation, we find that nothing -- not even a deep cut caused by violent headset removal -- will stop Texas coordinator Will Muschamp from coaching his defense (even though he does not actually bleed orange).

Beanie Wells 5. BeanieBoots

Due to the frenzy surrounding Beanie Wells' right foot, these velco-heavy black boots have surpassed Uggs as the most popular brand of specialty footwear on Ohio State's campus. Even in an injured state, Beanie's a trendsetter.
