The 2022 college football season will kick off with Week 0 games on Aug. 27, including a Big Ten opener between Nebraska and Northwestern in Ireland and with two of the ACC’s biggest names – North Carolina and Florida State – also taking the field. The season kicks off in full the following weekend.
The regular season ends on Dec. 3 with conference championship weekend. The final game of the season will take place at the College Football Playoff championship game on Jan. 9, 2022, in Inglewood, California.
