Yes, we know, college football actually started last week with Florida-Miami and Arizona-Hawaii, among a few others. But the first full weekend of our favorite sport (or one of them) starts Thursday night with defending national champ Clemson facing Georgia Tech, among others.

As for Saturday, we get Taylor Zarzour on play-by-play, former Georgia offensive tackle Matt Stinchcomb as the analyst and Alyssa Lang as the sideline reporter for the SEC Network telecast of Kentucky-Toledo at noon.

The Labor Day weekend concludes with Notre Dame at Louisville for Scott Satterfield’s debut as the Cardinals coach on Monday night on ESPN.
