To kick off this year’s historic College Football 150 season on ESPN, the network has teamed up with fellow Disney subsidiary Marvel Comics to release three commemorative comic book covers for the Miami vs. Florida match. Two will show historic games between the two rivals and a third will be for this year’s matchup.
Per a press release from ESPN, the covers launch the sixth season of the ESPN College Football and Marvel partnership. The covers pay homage to The Incredible Hulk and The Mighty Thor.
Here are the details of each game represented in the Miami vs. Florida covers, in chronological order:
