As happy as you can be for ACC and mid-major football, the week ahead brings back the best conference in college football. The SEC, with six teams ranked in the top ten, will kick it off with the first of ten games for each team this season — all against league foes. The schedules are brutal.

There were just 20 college football games played last week and only two dozen are on tap for the coming weekend. Some bleachers were empty and a few teams limited attendance to 20 or 25 percent of the stadium’s capacity. But who cares — we have college football!

Keep your fingers crossed that the corona virus doesn’t wipe out the greatest of all sports—college football. While the Big Ten and Pac-12 have cancelled their fall seasons, the ACC is on schedule to begin this week. The SEC, with six teams in the “week one” AP Top Ten, will kick off Sept. 26.
