College Football TV Listings 2020, Week 1

This is a list of every game played during week 1 of the 2020 college football season involving at least one FBS or FCS school. All games are listed, televised or not.

For the streamed/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:

College Football TV Listings 2020, Week 1

Additional notes:

– I normally include streaming information for games on CBS Digital,, ESPN3, Fox Sports Go, NBC Live Extra, Pac-12 Digital [which will have no football games in 2020], and Facebook.

– I also list digital network feeds provided by various conferences. 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.

In the past, the digital networks I have included in the listings are those for the ACCCAABig Sky (Pluto TV), Big SouthOVCNEC (Front Row), SoConWCCCUSAMountain West, and Patriot League. Some of the feeds for those conferences are provided by the Stadium platform. [Many of those feeds are of no consequence this fall, of course.]

Occasionally individual schools (almost always at the FCS level) provide video feeds. When that is the case, I list those as well.

– As I did last season, this year I am including pay-per-view telecasts and streams. These matchups are sometimes listed as “PPV” telecasts or (in the case of feeds from individual schools) “All-Access” streams, though an occasional stream with that description is actually free.

– BTN (formerly Big Ten Network) “gamefinder”:  Link [unfortunately, there will be no Big 10 games in 2020]

– AP Poll (FBS):  Link [preseason poll includes teams not playing this fall]

– STATS Perform Poll (FCS):  Link [preseason poll includes teams not playing this fall]

A lot of the information I use in putting this together comes courtesy of Matt Sarzyniak‘s comprehensive and indispensable site College Sports on TV, a necessity for any fan of college football and/or basketball. Another site on the “must-bookmark” list is, particularly for devotees of the central time zone.

I must also mention the relentless information gatherers (and in a few cases sports-TV savants) at I am occasionally assisted as well by helpful athletic media relations officials at various schools and conferences.
