Tyrone eased their way into the third round draw with a comfortable victory over Roscommon, who had dispatched Armagh in the opening round.
Red hand youngster Darren McCurry made his senior debut after impressing for the minor side, scoring four points from play as Mickey Harte's side secured a 1-16 to 0-8 victory.
Meanwhile Antrim claimed a major scalp on the All-Ireland stage with a thrilling one point win over Connacht giants Galway.
With the game poised at 0-9 apiece at the end of normal time, Padraig Joyce looked to have earned his side the victory when he landed a late free.
However, Antrim stormed back up the field and equalised through Tomas McCann, before substitute Deaglan O'Hagan landed a superb stoppage-time effort to seal the victory for Liam Bradley's side.
Both Tyrone and Antrim will discover who they will face in the third round when the draw is made on Monday morning.
Cavan and Monaghan play their second round games on Sunday.
