College Football Week 1 2019 Schedule: Oregon-Auburn title game rematch leads the way

New, comments

It has been almost a decade since the two programs met for the BCS title, but that is the prime game on this year’s opening week schedule.

While the NFL wraps up its preseason schedule tonight, college football is just getting underway. This weekend contains the opening game for just about every FBS team across the country, save for a few that played last weekend (looking at you, Miami and Florida).

The season gets underway in earnest on Thursday night, amidst all of the NFL preseason games. Four ranked teams are in action, including the defending national champions, the Clemson Tigers. A couple of ranked Big Ten teams take the field on Friday, including the Wisconsin Badgers opening up in the Sunshine State, before things really get underway on Saturday afternoon.

Perhaps the biggest game on the schedule, however, features a rematch of the BCS Championship Game from several years ago. The 2010 season came to a close with Oregon and Auburn duking it out in Arizona. The Cam Newton-led Tigers prevailed on a field goal with the clock expiring, winning the national title in a 22-19 contest. This year, both teams are ranked in the top 16, and they will face off at AT&T Stadium in the big Prime Time matchup on Saturday evening.

Join us throughout the week as we follow along with all of the college football action amid the end of the NFL preseason and roster cuts.
