D.C. Area College Football Teams Kick Off Seasons

The college football season gets underway this weekend for the area's four Division 1-A teams. Navy's season starts very early tomorrow morning, as the Midshipmen will face off against Notre Dame at 9 a.m. from Dublin, Ireland.

Season two for Randy Edsall as the University of Maryland's head coach starts in College Park Saturday as the Terrapins host William & Mary at 3 p.m. Edsall and the Terps are looking to rebound from a disastrous 2-10 campaign last year, and will have to do so with a true freshman, Perry Hills, starting at quarterback. Also at 3 p.m. Saturday, the University of Virginia Cavaliers host the University of Richmond Spiders in Charlottesville, as Cavalier head coach Mike London faces his former team.

But perhaps the biggest game of the weekend takes place Monday night, as the Virginia Tech Hokies host the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in Blacksburg. The Hokies are ranked 16th at the start of the season. Since the Atlantic Coast Conference split into divisions in 2005, the winner of the Hokies-Yellow Jackets contest has gone on to represent the Coastal Division in the conference championship game each year.
