College football schedule: What games are on today? Times, TV channels, live streams for Friday

- Advertisement -

Friday marks the second of five consecutive days of college football. Pace yourself, fans: We’re not even halfway done with Week 1.

That said, the Friday night slate is a relative lull in the action after three top-25 teams played on Thursday, including the “College GameDay” matchup between No. 17 Pitt and West Virginia in the Backyard Brawl.

Michigan State is the only ranked team to play on Friday, and it will face a Western Michigan team that went 8-5 out of the MAC in 2021. The pressure is on for third-year coach Mel Tucker to deliver yet another strong season after the Spartans finished 11-2 last year. That record included wins over New Year’s Day 6 teams in No. 6 Michigan and No. 12 Pitt.

Beyond that, the most compelling games from a national standpoint are the Big Ten matchup between Illinois and Indiana and the non-conference game between TCU and Colorado.
