Massive matchups to start Week 1
The AP preseason No. 1, Alabama commence their season with an out of conference matchup up against Utah State. The Crimson Tide are in search of their 19th national title in program history, but as always, they will have to get through a rigorous schedule in the SEC.

The game of the Week 1 will take place at the Horseshoe as the second ranked Ohio State Buckeyes host fifth ranked Notre Dame on Saturday night from Columbus.
The week begins with a massive rivalry matchup on Thursday when #17 Pittsburgh host West Virginia in the Backyard Brawl. It will be the first time in 11 years the two eternal rivals will square up against each other. Expect fireworks from Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh.
