ESPN on ABC College Football Map for September 4
College football is finally here and with it comes the ESPN College Football Map for September 4. This time slot will feature three games. Although they may not be the best games of the weekend, there is a rivalry game (Kentucky at Louisville) and two out of conference games with BCS teams which will be shown in the reverse mirror on ESPN2. They are Connecticut at Michigan and UCLA at Kansas State.
In my mind the storyline of the first week of the season is about non-AQ BCS teams playing BCS teams. The biggest game of those comes on Labor Day with Boise State and Virginia Tech in DC. Other huge games are Pitt at Utah on Thursday, then Saturday TCU plays Oregon State in Cowboys stadium and BYU hosts Washington.
The one big game with two teams from AQ BCS conferences is LSU vs North Carolina on Saturday night.
