College football season is officially underway. While we had two games during last Saturday's "week zero", the real action begins today. Most FBS teams will start their seasons in the next 24 hours.

College GameDay was live from Arlington, Texas on Saturday morning ahead of the big neutral-site matchup between Oregon and Auburn. The show's staff, per usual, made their picks for the most important games of the day.
