Will QB A.J. McCarron and RB Eddie Lacy lead Alabama to victory over Michigan on Saturday night?

It’s time to celebrate. The college football season is finally here!

Yes, we can now put an offseason filled with arrests, suspensions, player dismissals, bowl bans and motorcycle accidents in the rear-view mirror.

Week 1 kicks off tonight with 15 games, including an intriguing SEC East showdown between South Carolina and Vanderbilt.
