Is this a weed?

I have somewhat renovated my smaller front lawn, started in late Feb and have a decent amount of fescue coming up. I also have this area in the corner which I thought it was grass but this area also catches all the runoff from the driveway so who knows what has come through here.

This area (about 10x15) is spreading and is also growing faster than my fescue, the troubled area is the lighter green.

I don't think it's crabgrass but what do you think?

Perennial ryegrass is a possibility.
Poa annua (annual bluegrass) is the most important grassy weed--but--it usually has many tiny seed heads; I don't see that. Double check.

Virginia >>> I'm guessing the light colored grass is (cheap) ryegrass. The darker green area looks more like improved cultivars of Kentucky bluegrass. ???

Well I just renovated this part of the yard in late Feb and the light green didn't really look anything like this in the fall...was Scott's Pure premium a few years ago..

I laid down Southern States Select and has come in very well, that's the darker area...and thought it would have blended in the lighter troubled area more but apparently not. Must have been the fertilizer that let the light green area just take off.

Are the weeds in the up-close pic connected to each other?
If so, it looks like Young...Nutgrass.
