NCAA Football: Ohio State at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Our national nightmare is over. We’ve made it through the summer. We made it through talking season. We made it through a fake opening week zero. It’s time to play real college football.

This is by no means the best opening Thursday slate we’ve ever seen, but it’ll do. The headliner is the Ohio State Buckeyes visiting the Indiana Hoosiers for a Big Ten matchup right out of the gates. ESPN will be there doing a version of Gameday, along with their MegaCast.

Arkansas will (kind of) kick off SEC play with a cupcake game against Florida A&M. The Razorbacks are favored by only 54 points.

No. 10 ranked Oklahoma State will take on Tulsa, which should be a high scoring affair. That game’s total is hovering right around 70 points in Vegas. The Cowboys are favored by 17 points.

Below are all of the FBS games you’ll care about, including times and television information. Happy football season!
