  • #19 Penn State vs. #12 Wisconsin (College Football): This will likely be the biggest game for the Big 10 conference during the first weekend of college football. The game will be played at 12 p.m., Saturday, September 3, on FOX.


  • #5 Georgia vs. #3 Clemson (College Football): Both of these teams made it far into the season last year and hope to do so again in the first (real) weekend of college football. The game will air at 7:30 p.m. ET, on Saturday, September 3, on ABC.


  • Dallas Cowboys vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (NFL): This game will kickoff the 2021 NFL season, as the Buccaneers begin their pursuit to defend their Super Bowl 55 title against the Cowboys. The game will be played at 8:20 p.m. ET, on Thursday, September 9, on NBC.


  • #18 Iowa vs. #7 Iowa State (College Football): It’s the biggest rivarly in Iowa and will get to be played this year (the game was canceled due to COVID-19 protocols in 2020). It will be played at 4:30 p.m., Saturday, September 11, on ABC.


  • #9 Notre Dame vs. #12 Wisconsin (College Football): This game could be one of the best non-conference games of the third week of the college football season, but interestingly enough, Jack Coan, who is a transfer quarterback from the University of Wisconsin, is set to be the starting quarterback for Notre Dame this season and will have the opportunity to play against his former squad. It is not a chance that comes around very often. The game will be played at 12 p.m. ET, Saturday, September 25, on FOX.


  • BONUS: Tennesse Titans vs. Seattle Seahawks (NFL): In the second week of the NFL season, this game in itself could have very early playoff implications in the weeks and months to come for both teams. It will be played at 4:25 p.m. ET, Sunday, September 19, on CBS and Paramount+ (in select TV markets).
