    Here's the 2015 FBS college football schedule for Week 1 of the season, including games, TV channels and live streams for all match-ups.

    January 31, 2017

    A complete look at the college football schedule for Week 1 of the 2015 season, including all games, TV channels, and live streams.

    The 2015 college football season is finally here. After eight painful months of waiting, it’s officially game week. And boy does it start with a bang.

    The highly-anticipated debut of Jim Harbaugh as Michigan’s new head coach headlines the opening day of play for the FBS. The Wolverines travel west to Salt Lake City to face a better-than-advertised Utah Utes team.

    But that’s just one of 19 games packed into the college football schedule on Thursday, September 3. Others of note are North Carolina vs. South Carolina and TCU vs. Minnesota.

    The Horned Frogs enter the season as the No. 2-ranked team, behind the Ohio State Buckeyes. Gary Patterson’s squad was left on the outside looking in at the inaugural College Football Playoff last season. TCU hopes to make an early statement against the Golden Gophers.

    The college football schedule for Friday, September 4 features eight games. Three ranked opponents – No. 4 Baylor, No. 5 Michigan State, and No. 23 Boise State – will take the field.

    The first Saturday of the college football schedule pins top 25 teams Alabama vs Wisconsin against one another. Other big games include: Notre Dame vs. Texas, Arizona State vs. Texas A&M, Louisville vs. Auburn, and Virginia vs UCLA.

    Purdue and Marshall square off on Sunday, and the first weekend’s schedule will be capped off on Monday night when Ohio State seeks revenge against Virginia Tech.

    Following is the complete 2015 FBS college football schedule for Week 1. Games are separated by day and listed from earliest kickoff to latest. The TV channel and live stream available for each is also listed.
