Holy crap…it’s here. 

Yes, college football season is almost upon us ladies and gentleman, which means many things, not the least of which is that I have to spend hours each week compiling the TV schedule and point spreads. 

But I shouldn’t act like it’s something I loathe doing. Not only does it enable me to provide you all with the relevant info you need to plan out your weekend of college football watching, but it allows me to stay on top when the big games are on so I don’t miss them either.

Below you will find a table with all of the Week 1 college football action laid out in a nice, neat table. I have included the week one TV listings for all of the games I could find, but if you know of one I don’t have listed, please feel free to use the comment section to educate the rest of us.

And take note regarding the point spreads: I am posting this on August 19, which is a full two weeks before the games themselves.  Thus, the spreads could fluctuate between now and then.  

As you know, I do not bet on sports, so I post the spreads simply to give you and I an idea of what the experts think of each game. If college football betting is your thing, and you want detailed, up-to-minute betting information, the good folks at DocSports will take care of you:
