College Football Returns With Loaded Week 1 Schedule. Here’s How To Watch Every Single Game

Get that Mr. Coffee brewing, tip-toe to the living room so you don’t wake the kids, and find a nice spot on that sectional sofa … because you’re in for an absolutely LOADED college football Saturday. 

We made it.

Eight long months filled with transfer portal madness, endless conference realignment, lucrative TV deals and nonstop predictions ends today. 

Today, ladies and gentleman, we finally take the field.

Yes, I know. We took it last weekend over in Ireland, and Hawaii, and Doak Campbell … but that was but a tease.

This, my friends, is when the rocket ship blasts off and doesn’t come back down for months. Four months, to be exact.

That’s right. This feeling you have in your gut right now, right this second, ain’t going away for the rest of the calendar year.

College football makes it’s glorious return today, with a jam-packed slate of games beginning at noon and running well into into the night.

We’ve got ranked matchups, spicy showdowns, upset specials, and, undoubtedly, mayhem.

Here’s your Week 1 slate and how to watch every single damn game. All of ’em!

Fire up the grill, crack a Busch Light (after your coffee, of course), and take it all in.
