In four days, the college football regular season kicks off.
Yes, it's true: After the single most depressing offseason in recent memory, the eyes of the college football world will (thankfully) turn back to the field of play this week. It's been too long. Far, far too long.
And as Thursday's kickoff between No. 9 South Carolina and Vanderbilt (7 p.m., ESPN) nears, we'll spend the week getting you up to speed on all of the biggest storylines from all around the country. Our Three Questions series will ask (and answer) three pressing questions about college football's top conferences, teams and players.
We start our journey today in the Midwest, as we debut our new series with Three Questions: The Big Ten Edition.
Enjoy, everyone. And welcome back to football season.
