The college football season is coming, and this weekend there will be concrete proof that it’ll be here soon.

On Sunday and Monday, the ACC will hold its annual Football Kickoff at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, North Carolina. Each of the league’s 14 head coaches will be in attendance, along with two players per school.

Entering Year 2 in Chestnut Hill, BC coach Steve Addazio will jet south with center Andy Gallik and defensive back Dominique Williams in tow.

Players will be available on Sunday (before the afternoon ice cream social -- you’re jealous, admit it), with coaches following on Monday (after the golf tournament).

Here is the full list of players expected to be in attendance, via ESPN.com’s Matt Fortuna:

The 28 players come from 12 different states, with Florida checking in first with six of the players (21.4 percent). Defensive back is the most popular position, with five DBs (17.9 percent) heading to North Carolina to meet the media.

And there’s a first time for everything -- all 28 players will be attending the kickoff event for the first time.
