College football Saturday is back and you know what that means.

ESPN's College GameDay graced the TV sets across the country in anticipation of the matchup between Miami and Florida later tonight on ESPN.

Before the game kicks off, the GameDay crew broke down all of the action coming up this season.

Every Saturday as the crew gives their picks and predictions, the crowd gets in on the fun with signs. Now and then a sign pops up that takes a shot at one of the players or coaches in the game.

That was the case this morning as one fan held a sign taunting Miami quarterback Tate Martell.

"Tate Martell doesn't have fast passes," the sign read.

The fan is obviously taking advantage of the fact that Martell did not win the starting quarterback job after transferring to Miami from Ohio State.

New head coach Manny Diaz named Jarren Williams the starter, prompting talk of Martell transferring once again.

To his credit though, Martell seems eager to help the team in any way he can - even working at wide receiver this week before tonight's game.

Miami and Florida are slated for a 7:00 p.m. ET kickoff. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
