Default [CFB] College Football Week 1 Game Day Thread 2018 [/CFB]

WEEK ONE IS HERE!!!

HUGE holiday weekend of College Football to kick-off the season. We've got Thursday Night Football, Friday Night Football, Saturday Games all day, Sunday Night Football, and Monday Night Football!!!




Friendly reminder that ESPN is real bad and the sooner cable dies and we're all watching College Football a-la-carte via 5G the better:


When last we left, SEC West runner-up Alabama (who defeated ACC Champion and defending National Champion Clemson in the Playoff) defeated SEC Champion Georgia (who defeated Big XII Champion Oklahoma in the playoff) in overtime of the national championship game on a stunning pass from back-up freshman QB Tua Tagovailoa:




This season the Tide, the Bull Dogs, and the Clemson Tigers all start out at the top of the polls, with the rest of the college football world vying to knock them off. 2 legit contenders face off in a huge game Saturday night in South Bend, as Jim Harbaugh's Michigan Wolverines, now finally with a legit QB threat in Ole Miss transfer Shea Patterson, head on the road to take on Notre Dame, who is still very much relevant! REALLY!!!




But the Game of the Week features two Top 10 teams, last year's SEC West Champion #9 Auburn and 2016's PAC-12 Champion and playoff participant, #6 Washington. They'll face off in Atlanta on Saturday afternoon, and the winner will immediately vault themselves into the playoff conversation and claim a HUGE "resume" bullet point in their favor. The loser will go from pre-season Top 10 to lose one more game and your title hopes are likely DONE.

Where is that one Washington fan? He needs to lose $50 to St Jude’s in this game.

Auburn is going to whip the Huskies so bad Riley is going to be ashamed of his breed afterwards



Top ranked Pac team against 3rd ranked SEC team.

Those three little words every pretty girl in Alabama longs to hear; Roll Tide Roll.

Looks like the Hawks are trying to challenge NIU by adding some obstacles.



Looking forward to the OU game this year.

If I told you where I was looking, would you hold it against me?
