NCAA Football 2013: Open Thread For The First Saturday In College Football Season

Chris Breeze

We are definitely having some fun now. Talk about today's non-Kentucky games here.

Welcome to college footballs first weekend. This is your open thread for today's non-Kentucky games. Of course, as always, we'll have the tailgate and the open game threads for the actual game itself.

While we're doing the open thread thing, let me do a bit of housekeeping. We'll be very slightly modifying our normal process in order to try to get more comprehensive and accurate coverage. So after the game, we'll have a quick game recap with a full postmortem to follow. That gives us time to think through the postmortem a bit more, be a bit more analytical and a bit less reactionary.

We'll be reactionary in the game recap, though. Sorry — Kentucky fan. Reactionary are us.

So with that done, here is today's slate of games:
