Week 2 of the college football season is here! Another season of spectacular plays, dramatic upsets, and time-honored traditions is upon us. It will all culminate with the College Football Playoff Championship on Jan. 8, 2024, in Houston.
The Georgia Bulldogs, led by head coach Kirby Smart, will look to win their third consecutive national championship, something no other team has done in the modern era. Standing in their way is legendary coach Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide, as well as Big Ten heavyweights Ohio State and Michigan.
A slew of coaches will also be taking the helm at new schools. Former Cincinnati Bearcat head coach Luke Fickell will debut as the new head coach of the Wisconsin Badgers, where he will try to emulate the success he had in previous seasons as a Bearcat. The ever-polarizing Deion Sanders will also be taking over in Boulder, Colorado as the Colorado Buffaloes’ new head coach. The Hall of Fame football star made waves by bringing in 50 transfers for the upcoming season.
Most games this season can be found on channels such as ESPN, CBS, FOX, and NBC and streaming on ESPN+ and Paramount Plus.
