NCAA Football: College Football Playoff National Championship-Clemson vs Alabama Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to College Football Week 1! While the Miami Hurricanes opened their season last week, the vast majority of teams are doing so today/tonight.

While you do that, hop in the comments of our first general Game Thread of the year and discuss the action that will be hot and heavy from coast to coast in the early windows (Noon and 3:30) for today.

Here’s our rooting guide for games featuring ACC teams today:
