John in CT and Ron in NJ join Dave for another big College Football preview show.  This year we look at another batch of new coaches in big places.  Tom Herman climbs the mountain to Texas head coach while Lincoln Riley gets promoted to head coach at Oklahoma.   We follow up last year's hot head coaches such as Kirby Smart at Georgia and Justin Fuente at Virginia Tech.  Later we cover all of the big conferences in FBS including our College Football Playoff predictions and our annual Heisman Watch.  We'll see if Alabama can continue to be the team to beat, and whether the Pac 12 contenders like Washington and USC can make a statement in the New Year's Six.  Is Ohio State the class of the Big Ten with numerous returning starters?  We also add the "Coach Hot Seat Tracker" to this year's preview.  That and many other storylines from the NCAA and FBS on this special program.
