The world of college football is vast and the overall landscape constantly changes. Any true fan of the game knows that in order to fully grasp the enormity of it all, one must turn to others for help. For the record, there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, given that the College Football Playoff is right after the corner, we highly encourage it.
As long as you’re willing to use social media as your guide, then there is no reason why you won’t soon become a relative master of the college football universe. Of course, before one can reach that point, you must first look to those with the proper knowledge. If you want to learn all you can about the world of college football, these are the seven Twitter accounts that you must absolutely follow.
