ESPN will be airing 25 Hours of College Football, which includes extensive college football programming on all of ESPN's various outlets. The 25 hours will end at 8 p.m. ET Thursday with ESPN's first game of the season when South Carolina hosts North Carolina State. ESPN's family of networks will have two other games airing Thursday night (Vanderbilt at Miami (OH), 7 p.m. ET, ESPNU; Oregon State at Stanford, 9 p.m. ET, ESPN2).

During the same 25-hour block, we'll be chatting right here on, grabbing 25 people to break down the new season. We'll talk about anything you want, while providing analysis and commentary from across the country.
