  1. Your college football Labor Day treat: Georgia Tech vs. Tennessee on Sept. 4. And you'd better believe UT will spend more than just game week working on defending the triple-option offense.
  1. Breakout star on offense: A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss.
  1. Breakout star on defense: Garrett Dooley, LB, Wisconsin.
  1. Breakout star as return specialist: KaVontae Turpin, WR, TCU.
  1. Boise State QB Brett Rypien, the nephew of former Redskins QB Mark Rypien, is a healthy season away from 10,000 career passing yards.
  1. What will Baylor football look like under Matt Rhule?
  1. If Nick is the only Chubb you've seen in college football, get to know N.C. State's Bradley (they're cousins). He notched 10.5 sacks last year, including three vs. Notre Dame.
  1. Former Texas A&M QB Kyle Allen taking over for Greg Ward at Houston, just 100 miles from the school he walked away from.
  1. Can five-star freshman RB Cam Akers take over for Dalvin Cook as FSU's top rusher, or does Jimbo Fisher go with the bigger, more powerful veteran, Jacques Patrick?
  1. Army-Navy. The Black Knights have Navy's attention now after snapping a 14-game series losing streak last year.
  1. UAB football is back. Two years after the school canceled the program and its players scattered as transfers, the Blazers will return to action.
