Week 1 of the 2021 college football season gets going in earnest Thursday night, and here’s a look at the schedule of games.

The 2021 college football season got going with a five-game slate for Week 0 last Saturday, and there was another game (UAB-Jacksonville State) on Wednesday night. Thursday night, Week 1 gets rolling in earnest with 16 games on the schedule.

Thursday night’s slate features four top-25 teams in action (Ohio State, Coastal Carolina, Utah, Arizona State), with the fourth-ranked Buckeyes traveling to take on Minnesota. Notably elsewhere, Josh Heupel will make his debut as Tennessee’s head coach. Boise State and UCF is lined up to be a sneaky good game.
