Welcome to another year of college football! This year’s season starts on Thursday, and as usual here on MSF, we’re going to give you the complete schedule, what TV networks games will be on, as well as the spread for each game. I am excited to assemble this all for you, but there are times where I may forget (I am a full-time college student), so feel free to email me as a reminder. I usually don’t forget, but it does happen from time-to-time. I know there’s quite a few of you that look forward to these, and I appreciate that. It gives this repetitive task meaning and makes it more enjoyable for me. So settle in, relax, and get ready for a great weekend of college football. As always, we begin with some of the marquee games to pay attention to this week and then provide you with the entire rundown of the college football TV schedule and point spreads for Week 1. *All times are in ET Marquee College Football Games, Week 1 No. 5 Georgia at No. 8 Clemson  Date: Saturday, August 31st Time: 8 p.m. TV: ABC Spread: Georgia -1.5 No. 12 LSU at No. 20 TCU Date: Saturday, August 31st Time: 9 p.m. TV: ESPN Spread: LSU -4.5 No. 22 Northwestern at California  Date: Saturday, August 31st Time: 10:30 p.m. TV: ESPN 2 Spread: Northwestern -6 This Week’s College Football TV Schedule for Saturday, August 31 Sat.
