UK Fan at Mt. Rushmore wants the complete Week 1 football schedule


One week from today, football will be back on your televisions, a blessed sight for fans across this great land of ours. Earlier this week, ESPN released its complete schedule for Week 1, which I’ve copied below (I added a few CBS games as well). If you’re looking to plan your first few weeks of viewing, bookmarking this page is a good idea.

As you know, Kentucky opens the season with Southern Miss at 7:30 p.m. on ESPNU. According to this schedule, Anish Shroff and Ahmad Brooks will call the game. The duo called the UK/Louisiana Lafayette game last season. Here’s a picture to refresh your memories:

And now, the rest of the schedule, which uses rankings from ESPN’s “Way Too Early Top 25”:
