College Football Schedule: Week 1 Open Thread

Let’s get ready to rumble!

NCAA Football: Hawaii at Colorado State Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

After a bunch of games on Thursday and Friday to get your weekend started, the first college football Saturday of the 2018 season is officially set to begin!

As per usual, there aren’t a ton of “must see” games this early in the season. However, some of the matchups I’m interested today in include Tennessee vs West Virginia (in Charlotte), Boise State at Troy, Ole Miss vs Texas Tech (in Houston), and Navy at Hawaii.

There are two matchups where both teams are ranked today: #6 Washington at #9 Auburn (in Atlanta), and #14 Michigan at #12 Notre Dame.

Why is Indiana playing AT Florida International?

Anyway, all times CENTRAL:
