    On today's episode of Bucky's 5th Podcast we've got a fun little exercise planned in our College Football Dream Road Trip. This game was originally developed by Athlon Sports. The rules are quite simple, but just in case you forgot from last years episode here is a recap of the rules: each week you get to attend a college football game of your choosing. Once you see a team play you can no longer use that team in any other week. For example, if you go to Hawaii at UCLA in week zero you CANNOT use either of those teams the rest of the season. one game must be a group of five-game where two G5 teams square off. That's it! Easy enough? Good. We hope you enjoy this changeup from the regular podcast. Listen in, and let us know what your dream road trip would be! Also, be sure to vote.
