The 2019 college football season officially kicked off with a Week 0 battle of in-state opponents. Florida took down Miami with a come-from-behind win to get the season started on the right foot.

Week 0 provided a nice appetizer for the weekend of college football to come.

Before Week 1 kicks off on Thursday night, one major program received some tough news.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers suspended two players indefinitely, just days before the season kicks off.

Wide receiver Andre Hunt and tight end Katerian Legrone have both been suspended. The reason and length of the suspension are unknown at this time.

Both players are former three-star recruits.

Legrone grabbed one reception for eight yards for the Huskers in his freshman season. Both he and Hunt red-shirted for the team in 2018, but figured to bring more to the table this year.

The hype is real for Nebraska this season. College football experts everywhere have Scott Frost's program in the Big Ten title game with the chance of making the College Football Playoff.

Nebraska opens the season against South Alabama this weekend. The Huskers and Jaguars kick off at 12:00 p.m. ET and the game will be broadcast on ESPN.

Can the Huskers win the division this year? Stay tuned.
