College Football Schedule: What Games Are On Today? Schedules, TV channels, live broadcasts for Thursday

With all due respect to Week 0, the real start of the college football season begins today.

After a long offseason, college football fans have countless options to choose from in the Week 1 Thursday game slate.

Those include the long-lost Backyard Brawl between No. 17 Pitt and West Virginia; a battle between Big Ten divisions between Penn State and Purdue; and a matchup between No. 12 Oklahoma State and Central Michigan, teams that share a surprising history of bad blood.

The week’s headliner could very well be Backyard Brawl, starting with the fact that both schools have quarterback transfers from USC: West Virginia’s JT Daniels and Pitt’s Kedon Slovis. This also marks the 15th anniversary of the infamous 2007 game, when a 4-7 Panthers team beat No. 2 West Virginia 13-9 in Morgantown to prevent the Mountaineers from playing in the BCS championship game.

Not a bad way to start the season in earnest, and there are still 13 more games to watch outside of those headliners.
