Did you know college football starts Saturday?
OK, not FBS games. The first FBS game is Wednesday, Aug. 27, but the're an FCS game Saturday afternoon between Sam Houston State and Eastern Washington, or the school you may know as "the team with the red field."
The game on ESPN at 3:30 p.m. ET and the Eagles will wear a helmet decal to honor victims of the Oso, Wash., mudslides.

On March 22, 43 people were killed when a massive mudslide hit the town. The mud was reportedly 15-feet deep in areas after it slid off a hill and down the Stillaguamish River.
Eastern Washington made it to the semifinals of the FCS Playoffs last season while Sam Houston State lost in the second round.
