College football starts tonight. It isn't the biggest game on the schedule, but if you are hungry for some real life college football action, Central Arkansas faces Austin Peay in Montgomery, Ala.
This begins something of a slow rollout of the 2020 fall season. The first FBS game is currently scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 3, between Southern Miss and South Alabama. Saturday brings some bigger profile teams, with AAC power Memphis hosting Arkansas State, and Army hosting Middle Tennessee.
Navy and BYU face off on Monday, Sept. 7. Thursday, Sept. 10 brings the first contest featuring a Power Five team, with Miami hosting UAB. And then, on Saturday, Sept. 12, we have a slate with a bunch of ACC and Big 12 games.
With those games come some new betting lines for the anxious college football betting community. It isn't your classic Week 1 slate, and things are very spread out, but there is action to be had in the coming weeks. Online sportsbook BetOnline.ag just rolled out some new lines for the sport.
