ESPN College Football TV Schedule & Announcers For Week One Big Games


ESPN announced its broadcasting lineup for the epic opening weekend of the college football season.


It’s one of the greatest opening weekends of the college football season with epic game after epic game, starting out with a fun Thursday night of games – highlighted by the SEC opener between South Carolina and Vanderbilt. Fine, so that might not be epic, but it’ll matter in the SEC East bowl picture.

The Colorado vs. Colorado State rivalry game is the big deal on Friday night, along with the interesting Toledo at Arkansas State game for those who might care about seeing two potential Group of Five champion teams square off.

And then comes Saturday morning, kicking off first thing at 7:30 am with Georgia Tech and Boston College going at it in Dublin, Ireland, and with the day closing out with primetime games between USC and Alabama along with Clemson at Auburn.

It all keeps going on Sunday with Notre Dame playing Texas, and closing out with a phenomenal Monday night matchup between Ole Miss and Florida State.

ESPN released its schedule and announcing teams for all the big games – it’s all coming very, very soon.
