Before the Final Four of the Men's NCAA Tournament gets started at 5:14 p.m. ET, sports fans can get their college sports day started early with a full slate of FCS games.
Although several marquee games have been cancelled — notably No. 3 South Dakota State at No. 1 North Dakota State and No. 2 James Madison at No. 19 Richmond — there's plenty of exciting football to watch. And much of it starts just before tip-off of the Houston-Baylor basketball game.
So if you're wondering "What college football games are on today?" know this: There are 27 involving FCS teams scheduled for today, Saturday, April 3.
Note: All times are ET. Times and broadcast outlets are subject to change.
Best College Football Game on TV Today
Eastern Washington at UC Davis, 4 p.m. on CW31/Pluto TV
The Eagles got off to a slow start with a 28-21 loss at Idaho in Week 1 but have one of the highest-powered offenses since. Eastern Washington averaged 51 points per game during its three-game winning streak, which has the team up to No. 9 in the latest Athlon Sports Power Poll. But UC Davis is no slouch at No. 8. They actually beat Idaho to start the season and nearly toppled then-No. 2 Weber State on the road.
Southern at Jackson State, 5 p.m. on ESPN
Coach Prime returns to national television when the Hornets host the Jaguars in a matchup of 3-1 SWAC foes. Jackson State narrowly lost at Alabama State two weeks ago when they were on ESPN2, but Sanders has quickly turned around a program that is one victory away from matching its win total from a 12-game slate in 2019. Jalon Jones vs. Ladarius Skelton should be an excellent matchup of dual-threat quarterbacks.
