College Football Week 1 Open Thread - Early Edition

College football returns to our television screens today. Let's watch it together!

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

College football has returned to our televisions. It's a beautiful thing. Games have been going on since Thursday, but there's a pretty solid lineup of games today, with games in each timeslot to keep you engaged and in front of your television from 11:00 a.m. CDT until bedtime. I've put the entire schedule down below, so that you can decide what games you want to watch for yourself, but here are the early games that I'm going to be watching (times are CDT):

  • 11:00 - No. 2 Oklahoma vs. No. 15 Houston
  • 11:00 - Missouri @ West Virginia
  • 2:30 - No. 5 LSU vs. Wisconsin
  • 2:30 - No. 16 UCLA at Texas A&M
  • 4:30 - No. 18 Georgia vs. No. 22 North Carolina

If we do things the way we have in the past, we'll kick off another open thread for the evening slate. What games are you watching?
