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.

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