(CBS-Houston) – The college football season stands to be one of the best with the advent of the new College Football Playoff system. Nine games will usher in the 2014 season on Thursday night. However, Saturday just has that college football game-day feel. Several schools will be on display. However, probably one of the biggest displays of the day will take place in South Bend, Indiana as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will open with Conference USA Champion, Rice.

Rice Athletic Director Joe Karlgaard joined College Football Today to discuss Saturday’s contest and to talk about groundbreaking for the new football facility. He shares his timetable for groundbreaking which, for college football fans, is very close and big news. Karlgaard also shares his thoughts on whether or not college athletes should be compensated and the political climate of conference affiliation and what direction it might take.

Finally, we catch up with former Houston Oiler and Notre Dame two-time All-American Allen Pinkett who provides insight of what to expect from Notre Dame this season. The former Houston Oiler, turned Notre Dame Football Broadcast Analyst, expects quarterback Everett Golson to be exceptional and a must-have for Head Coach Brian Kelly’s offense. Also, Pinkett gives his insight from a player’s perspective whether or not college athletes should be compensated.
