Your early-season college football viewing schedule is now set

The 2014 college football season begins 13 weeks from today. Not fall practice, actual football games. To mark this occasion, the Big 12, Pac-12 and Conference USA announced the bulk of their early-season television schedules. ESPN has previously announced a number of kickoff times so, coupled with today's announcements we now have enough nailed-down dates to put together an actual viewing schedule.
