No more waiting, college football fans: The season is officially underway as of today, with five games between FBS on the Week 0 slate.
Fans might consider Saturday’s offerings slim pickings when compared to your usual college football Saturday, but anything is better after a dragging offseason. It should also be the first time we see full stadiums, considering necessary precautions taken in the 2020 season amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In all, there are five games to watch on Saturday. But only three teams that play will be from a Power 5 conference: Nebraska at Illinois in a Big Ten opener, and UCLA, which plays host to Hawaii to start the season. The remaining three games take place between Group of 5 teams and, in one game, an FCS opponent.
Like we said, the season isn’t exactly kicking off with massive games. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t storylines to watch, particularly in that Big Ten opener. Scott Frost may be feeling some pressure heading into Year 4 after three straight losing seasons at his alma mater. A win to start the season would be huge for him, but first-year Illini coach Bret Bielema will look to make a triumphant return to the Big Ten.
We can’t wait to get started. With that, Sporting News has you covered on how to watch every game this weekend involving FBS teams:
