College football schedule 2020: Complete list of games for all 76 FBS schools, week by week

College football schedule 2020: Complete list of games for all 76 FBS schools, week by week

The 2020 college football season is on, and the action begins Sept. 3.

A total of the 76 FBS schools — six conferences and three independent programs — have made the decision to forge on amid the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.

A total of 54 schools canceled their fall sports season, which trimmed the down from the traditional 130-team total. The Saturday slates are not quite as full as a result, and the regular season will run from Sept. 3 through Dec. 19.

The College Football Playoff pairings will be announced Dec. 20, with this year’s semifinals at the Rose Bowl Game and Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1. The CFP championship game is scheduled for Jan. 11 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.

Here is a week-by-week look at the 2020-21 college football schedule:
