The excitement, drama and big personalities that made HBO's Hard Knocks a national hit is now coming to college football.

HBO made its college football show in the same style of Hard Knocks official, and the network has now identified the participating teams.

On Wednesday, HBO announced that Arizona State, Florida, Penn State, and Washington State would be the featured teams.

The show is entitled 24/7 College Football, and will debut on October 2.

The show will be an alternating showcase of preparation for upcoming games. Episode 1 will show the Florida Gators preparing for Towson. The episodes that follow will be Penn State, Arizona State, and Washington State respectively.

The show won't be lacking for big personalities. ASU head coach Herm Edwards and Washington State head coach Mike Leach are two of the most interesting men in college sports.

The four teams are a combined 12-0, so the show offers a look at a pretty high-stakes time for the schools.

Back in August, it was reported that Arizona State, Penn State, Washington State and Alabama would be the four. But it looks like we'll be seeing the Florida Gators instead.

Which college team are you looking forward to seeing on HBO this Fall?
