The 2017 college football season starts on Saturday, Aug. 26 and concludes in early January with the national championship in Atlanta, Ga. With kickoff right around the corner, it’s time to fill up your Twitter timelines with information on all of the teams, players, coaches and latest news.

To help you prepare for the 2017 season, Athlon Sports has compiled the best Twitter guide on the web. Here are 700 (and plenty more) Twitter accounts you need to follow to get the best information this year. We hope we covered it all here, but if we missed anyone that needs to be on this list, let us know via Twitter: @AthlonSteven
