NCAA Football: Fiesta Bowl-Ohio State vs Clemson Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The 2017 college football season is officially back, today as there is one big game, but also the first game in of the Arizona State season as well.

To get you prepared, Justin and I went through the prospects and games to watch to open up the season.

Yes, we even discussed the Arizona State Sun Devils as the hype surrounding Kalen Ballage is growing by the week.

It will give us something to do during the lulls of the Arizona Cardinals preseaon game... Right? People aren't going to tune out of the Cardinals game, are they?

All three big name quarterbacks get started this Saturday, but maybe no player has more at stake than Josh Allen, as his Wyoming team takes on Iowa in Iowa.

The biggest game of the weekend is obviously the Florida State vs Alabama tilt, where six of Mel Kiper's first round talents will take the field, including two top five prospects in Derwin James and Minkah Fitzpatrick.

Just so it's on record:

Heisman - J.T. Barrett

Playoff Teams: Alabama, Ohio State, Florida State, USC
