Clemson and Georgia are facing off on Saturday night in the most anticipated game on the opening college football schedule as it is the only matchup of two top 10 teams and College GameDay was in Death Valley for the first time in years to start things off and the game will be live on ABC at 8 pm on Saturday night.
ESPN is considered to be the Worldwide Leader In Sports by themselves and many in the media and they are clearly the leaders in college football with all the games they have on the schedule and the rights for, but the one thing they do better than anyone else is with their college football studio show College GameDay that airs on Saturday's during the season.

The reason the show is so good is because of the host Chris Fowler as well as the crew that he leads with Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso and Desmond Howard along with contributor David Pollack and reporter Samantha Ponder, who happens to be married to Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder. The show details and previews all the top games in college football and this year the show will be making its way to Death Valley for Clemson and Georgia, one of the most anticipated games on the Week 1 schedule.
The two teams are the only ones playing on Saturday that are both ranked in the top 10 and Clemson is welcoming GameDay back for the first time since back in 2006 and the team is hoping to get the season started off right. The Tigers have some very high expectations this season after going 11-2 last year with Tajh Boyd, Andre Ellington and DeAndre Hopkins, but after the latter two players jumped to the NFL, the star quarterback will be the main focus for the team.
Both quarterbacks in this game are Heisman candidates with Boyd and Aaron Murray and the Bulldogs quarterback comes into the game after putting up some fantastic numbers during his college career. Last season Murray had nearly 4,000 yards passing and led his team to the SEC championship game against Alabama and after a fantastic game, he was able to give his team a chance right at the end to try and win, but the Crimson Tide stopped them in the red zone and moved on as SEC champs and then played Notre Dame in the national championship game where they totally dominated.
This season the Bulldogs will be looking to get back to the championship game and Murray will get the chance to finish his career off right with Georgia. The team opens the season at Clemson before playing South Carolina at home on ESPN and after a dud game the team will play against LSU at home before heading on the road to play Tennessee. Florida and Auburn are also on the schedule and Georgia Tech will finish things off.
