The biggest game of college football’s opening weekend involves the Clemson Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs in a test of title challengers.

Fans don’t have to wait long at all this season for the first battle between Top 5 teams. Clemson and Georgia will get the first big crack at building their playoff resume in Week 1.

The Tigers won the ACC last year but came up short against Ohio State in the playoff semifinal. It’s up to new quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei to make sure they have a chance at the postseason again this season.

The Bulldogs were 8-2 last season, winning their final four games. They’re feeling extra confident with JT Daniels at the helm coming into the 2021 season.
