College football TV schedule: Week 1 games, TV info

College football begins in earnest this week with Week 1 games starting on Thursday.

Florida travels to Utah on Thursday in the return game from last year’s Gators home upset. The back-to-back defending Pac-12 champions can put themselves in a good spot as a darkhorse CFP contender with a win, especially if it happens without quarterback Cam Rising (recovering from a torn ACL in January’s Rose Bowl).

As is the case during most Week 1 slates, games are scheduled from Thursday to Monday. LSU-Florida State is the game of the week on Sunday in Orlando, while Clemson faces Duke in Durham on Monday night.

Here’s a look at this week’s college football TV schedule:
