College Football 2022 Week 1 TV and Announcer Schedule

The Nittany Lions visit the Boilermakers in season-opening Big Ten action (Fox, Sep. 1 @ 8 p.m. ET). Penn State head coach James Franklin begins the first season of a 10-year, $70 million deal. Purdue went 9-4 and captured a Music City Bowl title during the 2021 campaign.

No. 3 Georgia begins its title defense by facing No. 11 Oregon at Mercedes-Benz Stadium (ABC, Sep. 3 @ 3:30 p.m. ET). The Bulldogs saw 15 players picked in the 2022 NFL draft, a record for selections from one team in the seven-round era, led by first-overall pick Travon Walker.

Titans of college football collide as No. 2 Ohio State hosts No. 5 Notre Dame (ABC, Sep. 3 @ 7:30 p.m. ET). This is the first regular-season game between the two since 1996, when the No. 4 Buckeyes bested the No. 5 Fighting Irish 29-16. Ohio State has won two bowl clashes since.

Brian Kelly makes his coaching debut in the Bayou as his Tigers take on the Seminoles (ABC, Sep. 4 @ 7:30 p.m. ET). The programs haven’t met since 1991. Kelly was 113-40 in 12 seasons at Notre Dame. Florida State opened its campaign with a 47-7 victory over FCS member Duquesne.

The No. 4 Tigers face the Yellow Jackets in an ACC game from Atlanta (ESPN, Sep. 5 @ 8:30 p.m. ET). Clemson replaced departing coordinators Brent Venables (Oklahoma) and Tony Elliott (Virginia) in-house by promoting Brandon Streeter (OC), and Mickey Conn and Wes Goodwin (Co-DCs).
