The college football season starts tomorrow! After months of anticipation, debate, and games played out on paper, we finally get to see some games played out IRL. At this point we don’t know much, aside from the fact that the Buckeyes will be an absolute powerhouse. Also, Illinois will probably be terrible, considering they fired their coach less than two weeks before the season started. Never a recipe for success.
This first weekend has some marquee games for our conference – with Minnesota taking on TCU, Michigan vs. Utah, OSU vs. Virginia Tech and of course Northwestern vs. Stanford. These games have taken on extra importance with the new playoff system, as they provide the only opportunity for us to see power conference teams play one another in what ultimately becomes a barometer for the strength of each conference. Let the fun begin.

*Editor’s note – Grayhack has submitted his rankings this week under protest, since he doesn’t believe in preseason rankings. The funny thing is, we’re not even sure we believe Hack is a real person.
