The 2019 college football season kicked off last weekend with a solid appetizer in the form of Florida vs. Miami that saw the Gators escape an upset loss with a 24-20 victory.

The rest of the nation is in action this weekend, starting with a handful of games on Thursday night.

Perhaps the biggest darkhorse to make a play for the College Football Playoff is Nebraska. The Huskers are a favorite of those betting on the title game across the nation.

The hype is real.

However, before the team takes the field this weekend, the program received some bad news. The team 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 was unknown at the time.

A day later, head coach Scott Frost said he knows "very little" about the suspensions. While he doesn't know much about them, he said they were necessary and failed to elaborate.

Neither played a significant role for the Huskers last season. However, both are expected to play more this season.

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.
