College football officially makes its return this weekend. Even better the first game of the season will be broadcast nationally by ESPN.

Austin Peay and Central Arkansas are set to face off on Saturday, Aug. 29 with a 9 p.m. ET.

This weekend was originally scheduled to be Week 0 at the FBS level, but with the COVID-19 pandemic altering plans, this weekend will be highlighted by the FCS showdown. It should be a good one, by the way.

Austin Peay finished last season with an 11-4 record, reaching the FCS Playoffs. Central Arkansas also made a postseason appearance and finished the year with a 9-4 record to close out the 2019 campaign.

Next Thursday, Sept. 3, the FBS season is scheduled to get underway as Southern Miss will take on South Alabama.
