Rumors Swirling That ESPN's College GameDay Decided On Week 1 Game

We're just over a month from the start of the college football season. After a seven-month layoff, it's time to get back to the sport we love.

Of course, the NBA offseason has been fun, the Home Run Derby brought some excitement, and the NHL playoffs saw a first-time winner. But that all pales in comparison to the start of the football season.

We can't take the layoff anymore. And apparently ESPN is itching to get back into the season as well.

Rumors have been swirling about where College GameDay will head for the opening weekend of college football. Notre Dame and Michigan appear to be the frontrunner, at least that's according to Barstool.

The report makes sense. Michigan and Notre Dame have two of the biggest followings in the nation. Apart from the Washington-Auburn matchup, Michigan-Notre Dame is the only other game with major College Football Playoff implications.

Michigan travels to Notre Dame for a 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff. The game will be broadcast on NBC.

Stay tuned for more on where College GameDay will be for Week 1.
