This is a list of every game played during week 1 of the college football season involving at least one FBS or FCS school. All games are listed, televised or not. For the televised games (only live broadcasts are listed), I include the announcers and sideline reporters (where applicable). I put all of it on a Google Documents spreadsheet that can be accessed at the following link:
– I do not include PPV telecasts, regardless of whether or not the matchup in question features FBS or FCS schools. These games are increasingly rare.
– I include ESPN3.com games; they are denoted as “ESPN3″.
– I also list digital network feeds provided by various conferences when they are free of charge. For some of these feeds, the audio will be a simulcast of the home team’s radio broadcast. Other online platforms have their own announcers.
Occasionally individual schools (almost always at the FCS level) provide video feeds free of charge. When that is the case, I list those as well.
– The local affiliates for the ACC Network “national” game of the week (Wofford-Clemson) can be found here: Link
– Listed in notes on the document are the regional sports networks carrying the following games: South Dakota State-Kansas, Sam Houston State-Texas Tech, Georgia Southern-West Virginia
– Local affiliates for American Sports Network games: Southeastern Louisiana-Northwestern State (Thursday); Old Dominion-Eastern Michigan (Saturday); Wagner-Rice (Saturday); Southern-Louisiana Tech (Saturday)
– Affiliates for The Walk TV network’s coverage of Delaware State-Liberty: Link

Also to be credited, as always, are the indefatigable information collectors (and in some cases sports-TV savants) at the506.com. I am also assisted on occasion by helpful athletic media relations officials at various schools and conferences.
