Ready for EVEN MORE football on opening day? Good. I am too.
Did you see (incredible moment from early game)? That was CRAZY!
What about (insert team) blowing that lead? Wow. That’s gotta suck.
And how about (other storyline)? Didn’t see that coming.

I’m gonna be watching Oregon-Auburn closely. That’s the best matchup and game that has piqued my intrigue. Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Iowa, and Texas are a few other ranked teams who will be playing in this window, as well.
Oh. And Fresno State-USC late. The potential for a USC implosion under Helton this season makes them must-watch TV for me. Like a slow motion car crash you know is coming but can’t look away from. And hey, if they win, that’s cool too.
What are you watching? And, of course, your immediate reaction to moments from these games are welcome, too.
