College quarterbacks get all the attention, so we're teaming up with Mike Golic Jr. to change that!
Each week, our Pig Skin Hero selection committee will honor an unsung hero who produces a spectacular highlight.
At the end of the season, we'll open up fan voting and select a Pig Skin Hero of the Year!
