ACC players talk Game of Thrones deaths, predictions

College football players may be busy on the field on Saturdays, but many spend the following Sunday nights just like the rest of us -- tuning into HBO's "Game of Thrones."

ACC Digital Network talked to some of its conference stars who watch the hit show as Virginia Tech defensive lineman Ken Ekanem, Virginia linebacker Micah Kiser, Syracuse linebacker Zaire Franklin and Orange head coach Dino Babers each discussed every character death they could recall -- there's a lot of them -- and gave their own theories for what will happen next in Westeros.

Before watching the video, keep in mind that spoilers about the show are mentioned in the clip.

While season seven of Game of Thrones won't premiere until next summer, the 2016 college football season kicks off Friday night with Hawaii and California playing in Sydney, Australia.
