(CNN)In the immortal words of legendary sportscaster Keith Jackson: "We're gonna play football...YIPPEE!"
This Saturday marks the return of college football to the sporting calendar. But instead of a full-on smorgasbord of games, the NCAA is offering up a tapas-sized portion of pigskin -- two games to tease our summer-starved appetites.
As football opens, the US golf season closes. The FedEx Cup Playoffs final weekend will crown a champion and hand out a record bounty.
The Little League Baseball World Series -- an International showdown pitting mostly 12-year-olds whose love for the game is infectious -- will also conclude.
If you're in the mood for fun and love smooth swag (like these "Office" themed cleats), don't miss Major League Baseball's Players' Weekend. It's when players toss out tradition and inject a bit of levity into the game.
You can also catch a few soccer champs on Sunday when when the two top NWSL teams square off.
Here's your weekend sports guide:
It's back! And has us like...
The last time we saw this sport, the Clemson Tigers, led by "no way he is only a freshman" quarterback Trevor Lawrence, crushed Alabama in the National Championship game at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
Saturday sees two games on the docket -- highlighted by top tenner Florida Gators vs their in-state rival Miami Hurricanes. "Rival" is a generous description of the game considering the two programs haven't faced each other since 2013. Believe it or not, Miami has won five out of the last six games.
The Hurricanes (7-6 in 2018) are starting anew after head coach Mark Richt retired this off season -- defensive coordinator Manny Diaz takes over. The Gators (10-3 in 2018) will hope quarterback Feleipe Franks will again lead Florida to a 10+ win season. The 6-foot-6 junior started every game last season -- tossing 24 touchdowns and only six interceptions.
