Saturday is the first full weekend of college football, with a couple really big match ups shining brightly.
Perhaps no opening day game has had as much excitement around it as Alabama and Florida State’s match up. The Seminoles put together their hype trailer for the big game and filled it up with inspiring words from Jimbo Fisher that ring especially true for this weekend.
“We’re beyond talking about what you can do. We know what we’re capable of. That’s what this is about. It’s in our hands. We’re back to where we belong. Now we’ve just got to execute and do it.”
Then the video hits another gear with big play highlights from both sides of the ball. Check it out.
In one of the other great match ups of the weekend, Ohio State heads to Indiana for a rare Big Ten season opener, where first-year head coach Tom Allen and the Hoosiers will face off against former head coach Kevin Wilson, who is now calling the plays for Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes.
Not that the match up needed any additional hype, but Ohio State released this video that opens with the sting of being thumped by Clemson in the College Football Playoff last year, before looking forward to the promise and potential of 2017.
So, who did it better?
