Last weekend the college football season officially kicked off with a battle between FCS opponents Austin Peay and Central Arkansas.
The game came down to the final play, with Central Arkansas holding onto a 24-17 lead in the final seconds. It was a great appetizer for the coming season of college football.
Over the next few weeks, fans of the ACC, Big 12 and SEC will get to watch their teams take the field. Sorry to fans of the Big Ten and Pac-12 who will have to cheer for someone else for a few months.
On Tuesday afternoon, ESPN released its upcoming college football slate. It all starts with a battle between Clemson and Wake Forest on Saturday, September 12.
Here’s the announcement from ESPN.

- Alabama vs. Missouri – September 26 at 7:00 p.m. ET
The college football season continues this week, but the first Power 5 contests are scheduled for next weekend.
Football fans sat worried about the potential cancellation of the 2020 season for months. However, it looks like it’s “all systems go” for at least the ACC, Big 12 and SEC heading into the fall season.
Meanwhile, the Big Ten is still trying to figure out a potential schedule. Will the Big Ten change course and have a fall season after all?
