    Welcome to ESPN's College Gameday, live from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the site of this week's Game of the Week between the #5 Virginia Tech Hokies, and the #13 Alabama Crimson Tide. I'm Chris Fowler and I'll be joined by Herbie and the Coach to discuss this week's news from around the world of college football as well as preview this week's great slate of action on the gridiron.​

    "We start off the 2013 college football season with 2 top 15 teams squaring off. Alabama knows what it is like to play in tough games early as they beat Michigan last year, but Virginia Tech doesn't want the same result.​
    Virginia Tech comes into 2013 looking to improve upon a great 2012 campaign. Senior QB Logan Thomas decided against going to the NFL, and is one of the top QB prospects this year. He will get an NFL like test against the always stout Alabama defense. VT lost their top recievers last year, so the weight of the season is all on Thomas' shoulders. The positive side for Thomas is that he won't have to score too many since VT returns many to it's tough defense.​
    Alabama wasn't the perenial powerhouse that they had been in the previous 3 years last year. They look to get back in the swing of things this year by riding Heisman favorite HB Eddie Lacy all the way to a national championship. Lacy still runs behind one of the best offensive lines in the entire country, which could allow him to win the Heisman even if his team doesn't compete for a national title.​
    Players to Watch
    For Virginia Tech-QB Logan Thomas
