The 2019 college football season officially kicked off last weekend with an in-state battle between Florida and Miami. The Gators used a come-from-behind win to open the season 1-0.

Week 1 of the season kicks off this week, with the top teams in action.

The national title favorite, Alabama, opens the season against Duke. Despite suspending star running back Najee Harris for the first half, the Crimson Tide are overwhelming favorites to win.

While fans have to be excited about the upcoming season, the team received some tough news this week.

According to multiple reports, star linebacker Dylan Moses suffered a significant injury in practice.

Alabama insider Matt Zenitz reported Moses suffered a torn ACL in practice on Tuesday night. He's expected to miss the full season as a result of the injury.

While the Tide employ a "next-man-up" philosophy, it's still a huge blow for the team.

Nick Saban recruits with the best of them, but losing a veteran linebacker just days before the start of the season is a massive loss.

Alabama opens the season as a 34.5-point favorite against Duke on Saturday afternoon. The Tide and Blue Devils face off at 3:30 p.m. ET and the game will be broadcast on ABC.
