Minnesota’s Thursday night opener against TCU is one of Week 1’s most anticipated games. And what better way to prepare for the opener than with a Frogger-inspired video game?
Thanks to Minnesota’s official Twitter account (@GopherSports), college football fans can have a little fun in the video game form. On Friday, the school released “Go Gopher Go,” a game where Minnesota's mascot (Goldy) tries to dodge TCU defenders, as well as a few other objects to reach the endzone.
No, this won’t fill the void of the annual college football game from EA Sports that’s currently on hiatus. However, it’s a good way to pass the time until the offseason officially ends.

As everyone probably knows around these parts, getting a scholarship as a walk-on is a pretty emotional moment.
Stanford walk-on Craig Jones has put in work, and that moment was thrust upon him when coach David Shaw announced he was now on scholarship. At a school like Stanford, that's something worth getting emotional about.
Jones tweeted about the moment he thought would never come.

Forget those boring sororities, you should pledge to the Ducks.
Oregon's mascot recreated the Alabama sorority video that's been making the rounds recently, except this one is better.
Here's the original version, and the girls somehow end up on the field at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
The new, and improved, version by the Duck is comical and just an overall delight to watch.
I think it's pretty obvious which one is more likely to get people to pledge.

There are many methods coaches use to keep their players engaged and energized before the season starts.
The coaches of Holy Cross football went above and beyond with a WWE-style wrestling match. To say the plaeyers were into it would be an understatement.Tags College Football

Whenever you're set to have surgery, you always want to know the risks.
Ivan Applin, a 10-year-old boy from Ohio, will soon undergo surgery on his heart and wanted to make sure things weren't going to change in his life. He's a die-hard Ohio State fan, but because his surgery would have to take place at the University of Michigan hospital, he was scared this would make him a fan of the Wolverines.
As pediatric cardiologist Dr. Ronald Grifka showed 10-year-old Ivan Applin the wire-framed device that would be used to fix the holes in his heart, the Toledo fourth grader had just one burning concern.
"He asked if the Michigan doctors were going to make his hear love University of Michigan instead of Ohio State," his mother Jennifer laughs.
That's a valid concern. Even though little Ivan will forever be a Buckeye, surely there will always be a place in his heart for Michigan.

Florida State running back Dalvin Cook is back with the team after a one-day trial on misdemeanor battery charges ended in a not guilty verdict.
According to a release from the school, Cook has been reinstated immediately and is eligible to practice. The sophomore is expected to open the 2015 season as Florida State’s No. 1 running back. Cook is one of the nation’s top rushers after an impressive freshman campaign and is a key piece of the Seminoles’ offense with the departure of quarterback Jameis Winston. Cook's return to the field is also a huge boost for a Florida State backfield that should be one of the best in the nation. In addition to Cook, the Seminoles have touted freshman Jacques Patrick and Mario Pender.
The sophomore running back was suspended after charges were filed in early July, putting his status in question for the 2015 season. However, any doubts about Cook’s playing status for the upcoming year have cleared, as the verdict has opened the door for a full return.

25 minutes. 25 minutes of deliberation. Tell me how charging that was a legit case and not a PR stunt. Sure.— Bud Elliott (@TomahawkNation) August 24, 2015

Fans of USC are fired up, but not nearly as much as Steve Sarkisian was during a team rally.
The Trojans head coach was assumed to be intoxicated while giving a little speech to pump up the crowd during USC's Salute To Troy.
"Get ready to [expletive] fight on baby," Sarkisian yelled.
Sarkisian issued an apology this morning.
"I sincerely apologize to my players and staff and to our fans for my behavior and my inappropriate language at our kickoff event Saturday night. I have a responsibility to all of them and I let them down. [USC Athletic Director] Pat Haden talked to me after the even about my actions and I assured him this will not happen again."
Haden also mentioned the encounter and wants Sarkisian to use it as a learning experience.
"I met with Coach Sarkisian and I expressed my disappointment in the way he represented himself and the University at our Salute To Troy event. While the details of our conversation will remain between us, I am confident he heard my message loud and clear."
