The college football season is officially here. We had a handful of games last Saturday, a UAB game last night, and tonight brings even more action with some top-tier teams involved. ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit is fired up.
Herbstreit is particularly invested in one of the biggest games tonight. Ohio State, the No. 4 team in the country and his alma mater, is on the road at Minnesota.
Thursday night also featured the return of one of last year’s breakout teams, No. 22 Coastal Carolina, an awesome Group of Five duel between UCF and Boise State, ranked Utah and Arizona State teams in action, and other Power Five teams like Rutgers and Tennessee opening their season.
“COLLEGE FOOTBALL IS BACK!!!!” Kirk Herbstreit tweet, getting people fired up for the next four days. He laid things out pretty well, this should be a fun weekend of college football.
