College Football Week 1 2020 Schedule

Complete Week 1 schedule for the 2020 college football season

College football's 2020 season is officially slated to start with a nine-game slate for Week 1 on Thursday, Sept. 3. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Week 1 slate is significantly lighter than usual. Instead of a deep schedule filled with intriguing matchups, the Week 1 rundown only features nine contests and none featuring ranked teams or Power 5 programs. However, a couple of intriguing games are still slated for the opening week of college football. South Alabama at Southern Miss headlines the Thursday action, while Arkansas State-Memphis on Saturday promises to deliver a high-scoring affair. The Labor Day showdown between BYU and Navy should be the top matchup of Week 1. ULM at Troy was slated for Sept. 5 but was shifted to Dec. 5 due to a COVID outbreak at ULM.


As of Thursday, Aug. 27, these nine games are slated to kick off for Week 1 of the 2020 college football season. Here is the complete rundown and list of television networks (where to watch), games and times announced so far.
