While many consider the holiday season to be the “most wonderful time of the year,” college football fans just might beg to differ. For these die-hard folks, the start of college football is equivalent to the jubilee felt on Christmas morning, and the anticipation leading up to the start of the season is equivalent to that of waiting for the clock to strike midnight on New Years Eve. Luckily for these fans, however, the anticipation will come to a close soon, as over the weekend many top-notch college football teams from around the country began their run for the BCS College Football National Championship Title.

From Alabama and Clemson, to Wisconsin and Georgia, the 2018-2019 CFB season appears to be one that will not only prove to be unpredictable in terms of who will make the College Football Playoff, but also in terms of what players will rise to the occasion and prove themselves “elite” among their competitors. Below is not only the ultimate viewing guide to the opening weekend of college football, but also a look at standout games for local college football programs around the North and South Carolina area. These are match-ups that will make for great opportunities to catch plenty of college football action without straying too far from home.
