Podcast: College Football Dream Road Trip for 2018 (Listen Now)

The hosts of the Athlon Sports Cover 2 Podcast select their second annual College Football Dream Road Trip

Do you love college football? (It’s a rhetorical question.)


What would be better than visiting a new venue every week of the season? Braden Gall and Mitch Light, the hosts of the Athlon Sports Cover 2 Podcast, have picked the games for their second annual College Football Dream Road Trip.


The rules are simple: You can visit a venue only once per season and you can see a team only one time as well. So if you pick the Iron Bowl in Week 13, you can’t visit Athens in Week 11 for the Auburn at Georgia game. For those who want to formulate their own trip, here’s a tip: Do not start with Week 1 and work your way down the schedule; pick the three or four games you have to go see and fill in the gaps around those dates.


Also, this doesn’t have to be exclusively about seeing the best games (though that is important); you can also work in some venues that you really want to see. Mitch and Braden both picked games at Nebraska. Neither is a “big” game on the 2018 schedule, but Lincoln is a great place to watch college football.


Listen to the podcast (below) and let us know what games you would attend on your dream road trip: @athlonsports, @bradengall, @athlonmitch
