College football games today, Week 0: Times, TV channels and live stream information

College football returns with a five-game slate for Week 0 on Saturday, Aug. 28 and we have everything you need to get your fix to start the 2021 season.

There’s no shame in admitting that you’ve missed college football; as fans, we all have. So when you see the Week 0 slate and are excited despite the fact that no team ranked in the top 25 and, really, no viable contender is playing, that’s okay. We’re just excited that the greatest of Saturday traditions is back in the fold.

While it might not be the most exciting slate of Week 0 games in college football on Saturday, Aug. 28, there are some intriguing teams. We get two Big Ten opponents facing off in their respective season openers with Nebraska and Illinois going head-to-head. Chip Kelly and the UCLA Bruins will also be on the field as they welcome Hawaii to the mainland.

Again, after a long wait, any college football games are better than none. So we have a rundown of the full Week 0 schedule with how you can watch every game as well.
