Any self-respecting college football fan knows not to have anything planned on Saturdays, because that day is meant for dawn-to-way-past-dusk game viewing.
But don't lump all your errands and responsibilities onto the weeknights, though, because year after year college football's footprint is extending beyond the Saturday landscape and stretching across the week.
During the 2014 season, there will be more than 100 games involving FBS teams played on a weeknight, with at least one game scheduled for each night of the week. Even Monday, as Louisville makes its ACC debut on Labor Day against Miami (Florida) to cap an opening week of college football that spans over six days from Aug. 27 to Sept. 1.
This year's slate of weeknight games features at least one great matchup every week, sometimes with more than one happening on the same night. And we're not just talking aspiring hopefuls from the mid-major conferences. The weeknight lineup includes plenty of power-conference teams, including both participants from last season's BCS National Championship Game.
There are league games, nonconference tilts, rematches and first-time-in-a-while (or ever) matchups. You want it, the weeknights have got it.
Here's our list of the 25 best weeknight games during the 2014 season, all of which should be much more fun to watch than whatever is on network television that evening.
