As summer winds down, and students return to school for another year, a new season in college returns this weekend: Football.
The hype of college football has been intense as schools prepare to kick off their seasons. Fans and official sports accounts took to Twitter, and other social media outlets, to express their excitement.
This is the last Thursday night without college football.

College Football Influence on Campus
College football influence on campus culture varies from school to school, but that has only intrigued Barstool Sports more. The popular satirical sports blog has taken a particular interest in what college life is like during football season.
This year will be the third year of Barstool U. However, the show is taking a new approach by extending itself to a new social media platform, Snapchat.
It’s the third year Barstool is making the series—in the past, Barstool posted the show on its website—but this is the first time the publisher is making content for a third party.
The series will launch on Sept. 8. More details about the show and why they decided to use Snapchat can be found in an article written by Lauren Johnson.

Florida Gators: Season and Quarterback Battle
With a little more than a week until their season opener, a huge question that has been surrounding the Florida Gators football program is: who will be the starting quarterback?
Currently the competition for the starting position is between Luke Del Rio, redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks, and Malik Zaire, a new addition to the football team. Del Rio was last year’s season-opening starting quarterback.
