The kickoff times for college football’s early season games were put on hold by the conferences and television networks who issued a joint statement Tuesday.
Collectively, the conferences and television networks have agreed to an extension for determining college football’s early season game times beyond the standard June 1 deadline, the Football Bowl Subdivision Conferences along with CBS Sports, ESPN, FOX Sports and their affiliates said in a statement. These kickoff times and network designations will be announced at a later date as we all continue to prepare for the college football season.
The coronavirus has caused the game times to be put on hold. Typically, the games to be televised in the first three weeks are announced well in advance and then once the season starts, the TV games are announced two weeks in advance.
Also clouding what early season college football games will be televised is when professional sports could be playing games. The only early college football game scheduled for television is Notre Dame-Navy from Ireland at 1 p.m. Aug. 29 on ESPN.
