After a seven-month pause, college football made its long-awaited return this week, albeit in circumstances that were far from usual.
The 2020 season began last week with a smattering of games across the FCS—the second tier of college football—in the so-called “Week Zero”, but proceedings got underway in earnest on Thursday night, with games featuring an FBS program and FCS teams.
With the Big Ten and the Pac-12 conferences both opting against playing this fall because of the novel coronavirus pandemic, the college football schedule will look unusually light this season.
The Labor Day weekend concludes with a primetime game on Monday night, as Navy hosts BYU at 8 p.m.
As usual, coverage of the college football season will be split across a variety of networks.
ABC will broadcast games in the ACC, American and Big 12, with games in the latter conference also broadcast on FOX and ESPN.
The three broadcasters, however, have been left with a gaping hole in their TV schedules after the Big Ten and Pac-12 decided against playing this fall.
ESPN will also carry matchups from the ACC, American, Sun Belt and SEC conferences, with games in the latter conference also broadcast on CBS.
NBC, meanwhile, retains exclusive broadcasting rights to Notre Dame’s home games.
Monday, September 7
