College football TV/streaming schedule guide, Week 1: 5 straight days of action

College football officially started last Saturday when FCS No. 12 Montana stunned four-time defending national champion North Dakota State. Now FBS starts with a relatively loaded Thursday night, better-than-average Friday, solid Saturday night, activities on Sunday that are technically football, and a battle with College Football Playoff stakes on Labor Day night.

As far as the rankings go, the biggest game is No. 3 Alabama vs. No. 20 Wisconsin in Texas, but there’s a good chance we’ll see a top-10 team or two go down elsewhere. Fellow top-six teams Ohio State, TCU, Baylor, Michigan State and Auburn are all playing away from home, and all but the Bears face what should be tough competition. No. 7 Oregon’s in an interesting matchup of its own, with new quarterback Vernon Adams playing his former team, FCS power Eastern Washington.

Below, full viewing and streaming info for the five-day weekend, plus notes on what to try and watch when.

Best option: Michigan at Utah, with or without the khaki cam

Spread: Utah -4.5
Read: Maize n BrewBlock U

Jim Harbaugh won our Offseason Coach of the Year award. And beyond the coach’s many oddities, there’s plenty to like about this matchup.

Harbaugh’s manball style meshes well with Michigan’s tradition and the pieces already on the roster, but this could be anywhere from a 6-6 to 10-2 team. The Wolverines will be tasked with an ultra-aggressive Utah defense that has managed to thrive despite the top offenses in the Pac-12. That likely means turning to star tight end Jake Butt, who could exploit a young Utah secondary.

Another coach that continues to delight us each offseason. These two have only played twice since 1992, and the Gamecocks won both. North Carolina’s offense could be excellent, but the Tar Heels have a special way of diffusing preseason hype. South Carolina’s fortunes are similarly hard to predict.

Keep it in mind: No. 2 TCU at Minnesota

If the Horned Frogs really are Playoff contenders, they should have little problem with a road trip to Minnesota. But the Gophers keep getting better and could take advantage of a depleted back 7. Above all, this is your first chance of the year to watch Heisman contender Trevone Boykin.

In case of emergency: Western Kentucky at Vanderbilt

Just in case you really can’t wait to watch an SEC team lose (hey, maybe in a few years, Vandy fans).

Best option: No. 5 Michigan State at Western Michigan

Spread: Michigan State -17.5
Read: The Only Colors, Hustle Belt

Western Michigan has been recruiting at an absurd rate for a MAC school, and looks poised to compete for a MAC title. And hey, the Spartans’ defense was ripped apart by Baylor last time out and lost defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi to Pitt.

Okay, now look at the spread. Michigan State has a scary front seven, an NFL-caliber quarterback and is one of the steadiest winners in the country.

Plan B: Washington at No. 23 Boise State

Chris Petersen’s returning, but it would take a lot for the Huskies to pull off the upset. The Broncos are looking toward another potential undefeated season and a likely major bowl bid, while Washington has to go through a second straight rebuild.

Keep it in mind: No. 4 Baylor at SMU

The Chad Morris SMU renaissance is probably going to take a while, but there will be lots of points!

In case of emergency: Kent State at Illinois

Week 1 interim head coach theater!

Early shift

Best option: No. 21 Stanford at Northwestern

Spread: Stanford -11.5
Read: Rule of TreeInside NU

There’s not much going on in the first batch. Despite Stanford losing a lot on defense, it’s hard to lose faith in the Cardinal. Northwestern’s been consistent, but a rebuilding year is a possibility.

Plan B: Louisiana-Monroe at No. 9 Georgia

The only other game between FBS programs in this time slot, it’s a chance to see Georgia running back Nick Chubb, one of the most explosive talents in the country. The Bulldogs are the best bet to win the SEC East, and this will be the first chance to see newly minted starter Greyson Lambert.

Middle shift

Best option: Louisville at No. 6 Auburn

Spread: Auburn -10.5
Read: Card ChronicleCollege & Magnolia

This one’s going to be fun. Auburn’s explosive offense against Louisville’s terrifying front seven. Louisville’s explosive offense against Auburn’s first Will Muschamp defense.

Even Louisville’s GIANT MEAN BIRD PICTURE helmets won’t steer us away.

Plan B: BYU at Nebraska

The Cornhuskers have the pieces for success, but new head coach Mike Riley faces a big first task. The Cougars offense, led by explosive quarterback Taysom Hill, could be one of the best in the country.

Keep it in mind: Virginia at No. 13 UCLA

This was mighty close last year … in Charlottesville. Mike London has been stashing talent at Virginia and improving, though, and a top-notch secondary could pose problems for UCLA’s true freshman quarterback.

In case of emergency: Penn State at Temple

The Owls’ defense is really good, and Temple could compete for the AAC title. But Penn State’s defense is even better, and their somewhat struggling quarterback (no thanks to the offensive line) is former five-star recruit Christian Hackenberg, a top NFL prospect.

Late shift

Best option: No. 15 Arizona State vs. Texas A&M

Spread: Texas A&M -3
Read: House of SparkyGood Bull Hunting

The Sun Devils won 10 games in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year, and should be a major contender in one of the toughest divisions. The Aggies break in a new defensive coordinator and one of the best receiving corps in the country. Add all that to a perfect match of styles, and it’s one of the best games of the day.

Plan B: No. 20 Wisconsin vs. No. 8 Alabama

Wisconsin’s the most likely Big Ten West winner, but Alabama’s still Alabama (even with a reboot). There will be running, but the passing games will be key.

Keep it in mind: Texas vs. No. 11 Notre Dame

Texas’s defense looks great, even if nothing else does. That’ll be a test for Notre Dame’s deep and explosive offense.

In case of emergency: Georgia Southern at West Virginia

Georgia Southern and its staggeringly productive rushing attack take on one of the best defenses in the Big 12.

Sunday

Only FBS option: Purdue at Marshall, 3 p.m. ET, Fox Sports 1, FoxSportsGo

Spread: Marshall -7.5

Read: Hammer and RailsUnderdog Dynasty

An improved Purdue is hoping for a bowl game, while Marshall seems on track for another double-digit win season.

Monday

Only option: No. 1 Ohio State at Virginia Tech, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN, WatchESPN

Spread: Ohio State -11

Read: Land-Grant Holy LandGobbler Country

Virginia Tech was the only team to beat Ohio State last season, and now gets to play the Buckeyes at home without having to face arguably the best player in the country and three other Ohio State contributors. Ohio State looks poised for another title run, but the Buckeyes will be faced with one of the best defenses in the country.
