College Football Schedule, Week 1: Games On Today 8/31

The 2018 college football season is in full swing, with Week 1 officially bringing us into the weekend. While the main course of games takes place on Saturday and runs through Laboy Day with Miami vs. LSU, there are eight games airing on Friday night to give us a small dose of what is to come.

In the first game of the night, Syracuse and Western Michigan meet in Kalamazoo on CBS Sports Network. Three games will air across the ESPN family of networks — Monmouth vs. Eastern Michigan, Army vs. Duke, and Western Kentucky vs. Wisconsin — while a rivalry game between Colorado and Colorado State caps off the night at 9:30 p.m. ET. That game will also take place on the CBS Sports Network.
