MIAMI, FL, Sporting Alert – The college football season continues on Saturday with a loaded schedule and you can watch, listen, follow updates or stream live coverage of the day’s play.

A total of 14 games involving ranked teams will be on the fixtures for Saturday, including the only ranked v ranked battle in Week 1 between No. 11 Oregon against No. 16 Auburn in Texas.

No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 Georgia and No. 5 Ohio State are the top five teams featuring on Saturday, while No. 6 LSU, No. 7 Michigan and No. 10 Texas are all set to open their respective season at home.

Highlighting the fixtures this weekend though is the season opener between Oregon and Auburn at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, live on ABC and WatchESPN, starting at 7:30 pm.

This game will be a rematch of the 2010 championship game, which saw the Cam Newton-led Tigers securing a narrow victory.

According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, Auburn is the favorite to start the season with a win tonight, after being given a 53.4 percent chance to beat the Ducks in what is expected to be an action-packed contest in front of predicted very large crowd.

Meanwhile, second-ranked Alabama, the beaten finalist in last season’s college football playoff championship game, will open its season at a neutral site against Duke.

The Crimson Tide and the Blue Devils will battle in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, with game time set for 3:30 pm on ABC and streaming on WatchESPN.

As expected, ESPN’s Football Power Index is giving Alabama a 96.3 percent chance of winning this game, with junior quarterback and last year’s Heisman Trophy runner-up Tua Tagovailoa leading the way.

Elsewhere on Saturday, third-ranked Georgia opens on the road at Vanderbilt in Nashville, live on ESPN and streaming on WatchESPN.

New head coach, Ryan Day, who takes over from the retiring Urban Meyer, will guide No. 5 Ohio State when it plays host to Florida Atlantic in its campaign opener live on FOX and streaming on FoxSportsGo.com.

In other games involving ranked teams, No. 6 LSU entertains Georgia Southern, No. 7 Michigan welcomes Middle Tennessee, while the 10th ranked Texas hosts Louisiana Tech.

Elsewhere, Eastern Washington opens at No. 13 Washington, No. 15 Penn State takes on Idaho at Beaver Stadium, No. 21 Iowa State hosts Northern Iowa, No. 24 Nebraska hosts South Alabama, while the clash between No. 25 Stanford and Northwestern is expected to be a close one.
