The College Football TV Schedule Just Came Out

By Taylor Lang - Jun 21 2016

This is a historic season for college football. For the first time over, there will be a game that is played outside of the United States and across an ocean. On August 27, Cal and Hawaii will play in Sydney, Australia! Are you excited to watch your favorite college teams? Also, I didn't realize the season is so long! Here is the TV schedule from USA Today for the entire season. (Feel free to hit Control+F and search to find when your specific team is playing rather than searching through the whole list!)
