College football season is finally here. After nearly eight months of aimless Saturdays, we can return to the time-honored traditions and tailgates of fall.

Every week, we will bring you B/R’s editors (Rich Thomaselli, Eric Bowman and Max Rausch) and lead writers’ (Michael Felder, Barrett Sallee and Adam Kramer) picks for the top five games of the week.

We promise they will be right more often than Lee Corso's predictions.
