When does the 2021 college football season start? At the moment. It’s been 229 days since we last saw FBS teams against each other and the wait is finally over. With many teams still a week away from kick-off, fans get a fantastic starter from what is affectionately known as Week 0 in college football.

The day begins with Scott Frost and Nebraska still looking for their first bowl appearance since the former star quarterback returned as coaches. The Cornhuskers travel to the first Big Ten showdown of the season against Illinois. The Fighting Illini are delighted with the start of the Bret Bielema era and no matter what happens in the game there will be strong feelings about how it looks for both coaches in 2021.

Other games on the list include UConn, who are heading to Fresno state after the 2020 season retirement, and Chip Kelly and UCLA, who are hosting Hawaii to start a year with heightened expectations for the Bruins. This is year 4 for Kelly at UCLA, and the program has yet to do a bowl game. But with a total of seven over-under wins, the notion is that the drought will end in 2021. Also, the Bruins are hosting LSU in week 1 in a huge non-conference match, so this visit from Hawaii will set our expectations for this game.

There’s a lot to deal with with these games and everything in between. CBS Sports will be here every step of the way to keep you updated with the latest results, highlights, and storylines throughout the day. All times of Easter
