The 2014 College Football season is starting off with a bang this year, thanks to

smash hit. 2014 marks the second annual Texas Kickoff Classic, where two big time programs face off to start the season at
NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. Last year's clash between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Mississippi State Bulldogs was
a hit, and this season is bound to be even more exciting with two big time programs from two of the most powerful conferences
in the country, LSU from the SEC and Wisconsin from the Big 10. The two teams have rosters loaded with talent, players with
size and explosive speed, who are sure to make their names known on national television on August 30 in Houston.
SEC and Big 10 are made up of numerous teams who look to be vying for the top spot in the standings, and both of these teams
know that an impressive non conference win early in the season can mean a lot, so they will be very motivated to dismantle
the other to the millions of television viewers and the 71,000 fans lucky enough to have tickets to watch this epic clash
live. This game might just be one of the very best games of the season and true College Football fans will not want to miss
