It's that time again, College Football is back on the gridiron!
At 8 pm EST, one of the biggest games of opening night 2014 will find the Boise State Broncos matching up with the Ole Miss Rebels at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Boise State finished 8-5 overall last season and 6-2 in the Mountain West Conference, while Ole Miss went 8-5 overall but just 3-5 in the SEC, after leaving some close ones on the table.

Junior Bo Wallace returns at quarterback for Ole Miss, after throwing for 3,346 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season.
"I have a lot more confidence this year," Wallace told the Associated Press . "I had a great camp. Last year I didn't have a good camp at all. It took me two or three weeks just to get back in the groove. But from day one (this year), I've felt good and I still feel good."
He will have some great targets this year in sophomore wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, and sophomore tight end Evan Engram. Treadwell led the team with 72 catches for 608 yards and five scores in his freshman year.
Last season, Ole Miss won the Music City Bowl 25-17 over Georgia Tech, but this year their hopes are even higher. Their amazing recruiting class from two years ago is seasoned and ready for action. Look for 2012 overall #1 recruit Robert Nkemdiche to have a breakout year on defense.
The Broncos are coming off a let down 8-5 finish last year, and they will be playing behind new head coach, and long time assistant to Chris Petersen, Bryan Harsin. Petersen left to coach the Washington Huskies, after wrapping up last season with a 38-23 loss to Oregon State in the Hawaii Bowl.
Quarterback Grant Hedrick will get the start this year after he threw for 1,825 yards and 16 touchdowns in split-time play last year. Running back Jay Ajayi, who rushed for 1,425 yards last season, looks to again be a large part of the Bronco's offense.
Prediction: Although Boise State is usually pretty good on the road, It will be hard for the Bronco's to get traction against a strong SEC defense. Ole Miss 35 - Boise State 17.
