There are two things that I love about the fall season. One...it commemorates the anniversary of me marrying my wife. The other...college football!
I wake up and watch Gameday and then waste away on my couch clicking through the various games which are on that day. Me personally, your boy Khan roots for the West Virginia University Mountaineers. I went there, learned a few things, might have burned one couch (in a controlled setting) and graduated from there in 1999. Old gold and blue runs through my veins and I could not be a more proud alum.
I know what you're saying. The first Saturday was yesterday. You are correct but the first real day of college football for me will always be the first WVU game of the season. This year is a special one because WVU is playing a long time rival in the form of the Virginia Tech Hokies at FedEx Field. It has been awhile since the two have played but this year is a big one in a sold out fashion at an NFL stadium.
But there is something which is special and awesome about college football. Fan bases and a lot pride in the school which they root for is at an all time high. And there are some really cool stories as well. One in particular got me where Jake Olson, a football player for the University of Southern California, blind since age 12 long snapped for the first time in a game on an extra point. Mad props to Western Michigan University for being a part of this moment.

With that said...who do you root for? Enjoy the 2017 college football season. And of course,
LET'S GO MOUNTAINEERS!!!
