Week 1 College Football TV Schedule

It’s the best weekend of college football!

College basketball has March Madness, and it’s pretty hard to top that. I would argue that college football over Labor Day weekend is a close second. There are games scheduled every day from Thursday to Monday, and most days have at least one marquee game. What’s not to love?

As always, I will list the Big Ten and Purdue out-of-conference (OOC) opponents first, followed by the full CFB schedule. Happy kickoff weekend!
