We are 48 hours from the first college football game of the year and less than 96 hours from the first Saturday, when Notre Dame and Navy play in Ireland.

Last season produced one of the greatest seasons in recent memory. USC returned to prominence despite not being able to play in a bowl game. Michigan State and Wisconsin gave us two thrilling, down- to-the-wire contests.

Robert Griffin III gave us one of the greatest single seasons by a quarterback on his way to capturing the Heisman Trophy. Oklahoma State finished with the most wins in school history and won a shootout against Andrew Luck and Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl.

Most notably, from the SEC, we saw LSU and Alabama stage two slugfests that determined the national title. Alabama avenged an early-season loss to LSU and won its second national title in three years, giving the conference six straight.
