College Football Games to Watch – Week 0

It’s back!  It’s back!  It’s finally back!  College football is finally here!  (Ok maybe not the real start to the season but hey these are actual live, regular season FBS games being played so you bet that everybody is going to be watching.)  While the official Week 1 of college football season is next weekend, the last several years have seen a Week 0 (yes it’s goofy) the week before Labor Day Weekend with several games, usually between Group of 5 teams. 

For example, last year Colorado State crushed Oregon State and in 2016 Cal smoked Hawaii (in Sydney, Australia for some strange reason).  So with the return of college football comes a weekly list of the best games to watch on TV.  All games are listed in chronological order and all times listed are Central Time.  All rankings reflect the most recent college football AP Poll.  And remember, if your team doesn’t make this list, it’s only because I hate them. Here are the best games to watch in Week 0.

College football games to watch

Saturday August 25

Hawaii @ Colorado State

Canvas Stadium – Ft. Collins, CO

Kickoff: 6:30pm

TV: CBSSN

Why you should watch: It’s the first game of the college football season.  Duh.  It’s a very early season Mountain West game.  Hawaii went a dismal 3-9 last year, while under Mike Bobo (who has returned to coaching in the last few days after a serious health scare) the Rams have been a solid bowl team for the last three seasons.

 

Wyoming @ New Mexico State

Aggie Memorial Stadium – Las Cruces, NM

Kickoff: 9:00pm

TV: ESPN2

Why you should watch: This is a matchup that is better than it gets credit for.  Both teams went to bowl games last year but their situations could both be very different this season.  Wyoming has to replace their best ever QB, as Josh Allen was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the NFL Draft.  Meanwhile, New Mexico State (the Other Aggies) just made the move from the Sun Belt to play as an Independent.
