There Are 4 College Football Games Today: Here's The Schedule

Football is back! No really, it is.

Although the major action doesn't kick off until next weekend, college football fans get a solid appetizer of football today.

No Power 5 programs are in action until Thursday, but there are several interesting matchups that kick off in just a few hours. We have four games involving FBS teams on the docket for Saturday night.

Here are the four college football games being played TONIGHT, which is commonly called "Week Zero."

College football games starting at 5:30 p.m. ET and carrying us into Sunday? We'll take it.

No, none of these programs will be fighting for a College Football Playoff berth, but don't let that distract you from the fact college football has returned to Saturdays.

There won't be another Saturday without college football until 2019.
