As the 1980 college football season begins, everybody is hunting Alabama and The Bear. Winners of two straight national titles to close out the decade, the Crimson Tide starts the year perched at number two and riding an eighteen-game winning streak. The first week of games features Bobby Bowden and his renegade band of Seminoles continuing their raid on college football’s elite with a season opener in Death Valley against LSU while the Georgia Bulldogs and their prized freshman recruit, Herschel Walker, take on Tennessee in front of the largest crowd to ever watch a football game in the South. Meanwhile, in the Midlands of South Carolina, the Gamecocks’ George Rogers gallops against the University of the Pacific.
