Need something to brighten your day? I have just the thing to do the trick.

As of today – August 20, 2020 – we are exactly two weeks away from the return of college football.

Taking a peek at the updated FBS college football schedule, two real life games are set to take place on Thursday, Sept. 3 to officially open the season.

Just announced this morning, Central Arkansas will now head to UAB to take on the Blazers at 8 p.m. ET., along with South Alabama taking on Southern Miss in Hattiesburg the same day (time TBD).

From there, Middle Tennessee will head to West Point to take on Army on either Friday or Saturday, depending on television scheduling. As of now, Army’s official website has the game scheduled for Friday, Sept. 4.

Heading into the weekend, we have four games scheduled throughout the day on Saturday, Sept. 5:

  • Arkansas State @ Memphis
  • Houston Baptist @ North Texas
  • EKU @ Marshall
  • SMU @ Texas State

Needing more football to open the following week? BYU will take on Navy in Annapolis on Monday, Sept. 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET, live on ESPN.

As fun as the warmup games will be to open the season, the following week will be something all football fans drool over:

14 more sleeps until college football returns.
