College Football Week One: Kickoff Times, TV Schedules, and Links to Great Coverage

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the first Saturday of the 2015 college football season. You'll probably be glued to your television all day. Please warn your significant others that, if they don't enjoy college football, please don't be alarmed when you crawl into the fetal position, rocking back and forth muttering to yourself, "Finally, it's back. Finally, it's been so long." This is normal behavior.

The first Saturday of the season features your Virginia Cavaliers at UCLA in a game where Virginia is really not expected to put up much of a fight against the heavily favored Bruins.

But there are, apparently, other fun games happening this weekend, too. Louisville travels to take on No. 6 Auburn at the same time as Virginia. If you want to watch former Virginia quarterback Greyson Lambert in action, he's expected to start for the No. 9 Georgia Bulldogs against Louisiana-Monroe at noon on the SEC Network. The Texas schools have some big competition too, as Texas A&M takes on No. 15 Arizona State, while Texas takes on No. 11 Notre Dame.

And if you can stand it to wait until Monday, Virginia Tech plays host to No. 1 Ohio State, who will try to avenge their only loss of last year's successful national championship campaign.

Here's the full lineup! Don't forget to join in on our College Football Pick'em -- it's free and there are no prizes!
