MIAMI, FL — College football action is here again and Thursday night and the following is the schedule, live streaming and television channels for the 12 games that are listed to take place in the first full week of play.
Among the programs on the schedule to play Thursday night are No. 21 UCF, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State.
UCF, which ended last season undefeated and with a 13-0 overall record, will open its campaign against the University of Connecticut at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in East Hartford.
The Knight ended last season with a 34-27 victory over then-No. 7 Auburn to win the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl and will be hoping to maintain that run to kick-start the season on Thursday night.
