Might actually be the first time I can remember that Notre Dame plays at home in primetime and it'll actually be the biggest game going on. Feels like most weeks when NBC puts ND into the 7:30 time slot, it's overshadowed by the ABC and/or FOX games, when playing at the traditional 3:30 kickoff would've made it the clear biggest game.

I see them going to Alabama for some dumb reason. Instead of going back to the rivalry of Michigan v Norte Dame!

Louisville/Alabama is in Orlando and it's the primetime game. Monday night, which Herbstreit will also call is VT@Florida State.

 

Being in Atlanta would be for Washington/Auburn, which is the best matchup of the day.

 

Week 2 is either Clemson@Texas A&M or Penn State@Pitt.

 

Week 3 will likely be in Fort Worth (TCU campus or Sundance Square) as TCU/Ohio State is at AT&T Stadium.

The Big Ten has asked the NCAA to consider developing a national college football injury reporting system in reaction to the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that allows states to legalize sports gambling.

 

The conference's athletic directors proposed to the NCAA Football Oversight Committee in June what would be a first-ever weekly national injury reporting mandate. The ADs claim an injury report is necessary to protect the integrity of the sport.

 

Such a move would alter one of the most ingrained and long-standing traditions in college football -- coaches concealing injuries. From the earliest days of the sport, the decision to release such information has typically been made by the coaches themselves, sometimes flying in the face of fair play and transparency.

 

The main issue is how to get around student privacy laws -- most notably the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Essentially, athletes would have to consent to have their injury information released publicly.

With pro sports leagues required to release player injuries it should be interesting to see how this goes. The argument could be made that they aren't discussing unknown occurrences of injury, especially if a player's injury is seen on national TV. However, for Division II, III and some FCS schools they don't have that occurring unless it's in the playoffs. I'm guessing FBS would be the only ones required to do this.
