Here is a list of some important kickoff time from week 1 that were announced by ESPN on Monday.
No. 6 LSU vs. Wisconsin (3:30 p.m. on ABC) from Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis. The game will be the fourth college football game held in the home of the Green Bay Packers, having previously occurred in 1983, 1982, and 1960. The previous three games featured St. Norbert taking on Fordham twice and Mankato State once.
No. 13 Georgia vs. No. 19 North Carolina (5:30 p.m. on ESPN) in the 2016 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Both the Tar Heels and the Bulldogs will be making their second appearance in the game, which began in 2008 and included a special two-game event in both 2012 and 2014.
No. 12 USC vs. No. 1 Alabama (8 p.m. on ABC) from Arlington, Texas. The Trojans are kicking off their season for the first time from AT&T Stadium, while the Crimson Tide is 2-0 in season-opening games from the stadium since 2009.
No. 2 Clemson at Auburn (9 p.m. on ESPN) from Auburn, Ala. This will be the 50th all-time meeting between the two schools, but just the fourth regular season meeting since 1971.
