Can you smell that? No, not the dirty hamper of clothes that’s been sitting in your dorm room for two weeks too long. That other smell. It comes around once a year and hangs for four months.
It’s college football season, folks!
And really, we couldn’t have asked for a better start to 2014. Georgia State opened the FBS season on Wednesday night with a game-winning field goal. Then, shortly after that, the SEC’s year got underway when South Carolina and Texas A&M fans beefed at the State House.
Over the next few days the nation will watch as college football teams around the country make their first entrances of the season. With that in mind, there’s not a better time to roll out what we believe to be the “Best College Football Entrances” for 2014. We are talking electric folks. These are the creme de la creme; ones that will even give rival fans goosebumps.
As Van Morrison once said, “If you would turn it up, turn it up, little bit higher …”
These are the five best entrances in all of college football, the ones who’ve got electric soul.
