Football is finally back. And while most of the teams around the country, including Baylor, will have to wait another week to open their season, there are few games worth watching today.

1.) Nebraska at Illinois — The coaches are the intriguing storyline in this one. The Illini have new head coach Bret Bielema making his comeback into the Big 10 conference. And for Nebraska, Scott Frost is trying to generate some momentum for his program. The game will be televised @ 12:00 on FOX.

2.) Hawaii at UCLA — It seems like every year Hawaii plays in the opening weekend of games. The Bruins were improved last year, but need to make sure this does not turn into a trap game, as they play LSU the following week. The game kicks off @ 2:30 on ESPN.

Obviously, this lineup won’t compare to next week, but it’s still a nice appetizer for the hardcore college football fans. I hope everyone enjoys the season.
