The 2020 college football season kicks off this weekend. Here’s the most up to date schedule after many previously scheduled games were postponed.
The carousel of college football schedules has gone round and round over the past several weeks. Who was playing who has seemed like a make-believe exercise at times, with games coming and going within days. Now things are getting real.
The first college football game of the season is scheduled to kick off this Saturday when Central Arkansas takes on Austin Peay at the Cramton Bowl in Montgomery, Alabama. The first FBS matchup of the season is scheduled to follow five days later when Central Arkansas visits UAB for their second game of the season.
With real football mere days away instead of weeks, it’s time we familiarized ourselves with which teams are going to be playing in real games on television. As things stand, here’s what’s on the schedule over the course of the next week and a half. This includes all games featuring FBS and/or FCS teams.
