With all the recent craziness surrounding college football, sometimes it’s nice to be reminded of what we’re hanging around for.
David Hale: Clemson and Georgia is the perfect September football game. It’s an established title contender in Clemson vs. the trendy pick for 2021 in Georgia. It’s a matchup of big-armed QBs from Southern California. It’s two teams that have recruited at the highest level for years. And rather than a one-off spectacle, this is a matchup that actually has history on its side, too, with UGA and Clemson playing 64 times in the past, with the last matchup in 2014 including Deshaun Watson’s awe-inspiriting first TD throw and an absolute huge performance from Bulldogs’ superstar Todd Gurley on the ground. This is as good an opening weekend showdown as we’ve had in college football in a long time.
Amen to that. I can’t wait.
