The fire hose is on. College football's opening weekend features 84 games involving FBS teams, plus tons more at lower levels; it began on Wednesday with UAB's 31-0 win over Jacksonville State and will continue through what is almost guaranteed to be a wild and wacky Ole Miss-Louisville game in Atlanta on Monday night.
