It Doesn't Get Any Better Than College Football Saturdays

Micah SecorCorrespondent IOctober 25, 2016

The long-awaited college football season has finally come this way.

This Saturday, teams across America will begin their long and hopeful trip to the BCS.

There's nothing better than the start of football.  It signals a fresh start and a promising season, and the atmosphere that the fans create and the excitement that the players generate is truly remarkable.

Hopes for each team are sky-high.

Injury-riddled USC will work out the kinks against an underachieving Virginia team, and a dark horse Clemson squad will take on Alabama in what should be the best Week One showdown.

But Sep. 13 will be a day to remember.

No. 2 Ohio St. will face off against No. 3 USC at the Coliseum in an epic matchup with serious BCS implications.

The stingy defense of USC will be tested by the strong-armed Todd Boeckman and talented freshman Terrelle Pryor, as well as Heisman hopeful Chris "Beanie" Wells.

Whoever comes away the winner from this one is on the fast track to making the BCS Championship Game.

It will be a year filled with the hope of success, the sorrow and heartbreak of defeat, and the triumph of victory.

It's right around the corner, and on Saturday, the fun really begins.
