I've been waiting for what seems like forever to make another one of these posts.  As of tonight, college football is back in full-swing.  The big headline for tonight has been Jim Harbaugh's return to Michigan to face a very underrated and dangerous Utah Utes team, but that isn't the only option for those who have missed the greatest sport in all the land.

As I did last season, I'll reference ranked teams, with obvious exceptions, and all times will be in your native Oregon (Pacific) time, regardless of the fact that I am in Michigan and math is hard.

4:30
Alcorn State @ (16) Georgia Tech (ESPN3) - Alcorn State is commonly expected to win their SWAC divison, but realistically, there isn't much of a chance of the Yellow Jackets losing this one.  Georgia Tech plays two ho-hum games before facing off against Notre Dame.

5:30
Michigan @ Utah (FS1) - Harbaugh goes from the main man in San Fransisco to a "savior" in Ann Arbor.  There is a lot of hype going into this game considering neither team is ranked, but Utah is not to be overlooked, as they boast one of the best running backs in the country in Devontae Booker, who rushed for 1,512 yards last season.

6:00
(2) TCU @ Minnesota (ESPN) - This game is all about Trevone Boykin.  He's a front-runner for the Heisman award, and returns to a Horned Frogs team that was second in the country in scoring last season.  This is the kind of game you watch to see a great player perform, not necessarily because it'll be a competitive match.

7:00 
Texas - San Antonio @ (22) Arizona (P12) - Scooby Wright III is no joke.  Aside from that Bosa guy who plays for that one team that none of us want to discuss, Wright may be the biggest defensive menace in college football. We Ducks fans remember him from last year.  We remember the Wildcats.  We remember that they won the P12 South.

10:00
Colorado @ Hawaii (CBSSN) - This is the Will Rubin special.  He suggests that you watch it.

The Michigan State Spartans and Baylor Bears have respective games tomorrow, and we all know what Saturday brings.  Keep the conversation going in the comments.  Welcome back to college football!
