2017-18 College Gameday Season Preview!

And we are back.  As of this morning we have officially survived another offseason with the kickoff of Florida A&M vs Texas Southern.  However, we all know it was open season with the return of College Gameday an hour before those two teams kicked off.  Our Gameday crew was back spitting hot takes and wild ass predictions for this season.  These are usually wildly inaccurate by the end of the season, however they reminded us last year Kirk Herbstreit predicted Clemson over Alabama in the championship game on the season preview.  Without further adieu, here are this year’s official preseason predictions (along with hot picks from @GamedayJen), so bookmark this page and come see us again in January.
