2017 College Football Week 8 TV and Announcer Schedule

ABC’s “Saturday Night Football” features No. 19 Michigan at No. 2 Penn State (7:30 p.m.), as the Nittany Lions welcome the Wolverines into Beaver Stadium for their traditional white out game. After starting this season 6-0, the Nittany Lions have earned their highest Associated Press Poll ranking since 1999. The Wolverines were the last Big Ten team to defeat Penn State, dating back to September 2016, and have won the last three matchups in the series.

NBC will also televise college football on Saturday night when highly touted quarterback Sam Darnold and the rest of his USC Trojans enter South Bend, Ind. to face the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

The following is the Week 8 college football regular season schedule featuring the Top 25 teams (according to the weekly Associated Press poll), including dates, start times, TV networks and scheduled announcers.
