Thursday Night College Football Betting
The first Thursday night of the 2020 season will give us a cornucopia of action as more than 20 teams will start their campaigns. Top tier teams like Clemson and Minnesota will be on display, and there is plenty of action on the docket to get everyone excited for college football. However, Thursday nights are somewhat barren after Week 1, and they are largely the domain of the AAC and the Sun Belt. Both conferences will have multiple tilts on Thursday night throughout the season.
Thursday Night College Football Schedule
College Football Thursday, September 3, 2020
Jacksonville State at Florida International | TBD
UMass at UConn | TBD
Clemson at Georgia Tech | TBD
New Mexico State at UAB | TBD
Maine at Ball State | TBD
Southeast Louisiana at Tulane | TBD
North Carolina State at Louisville | TBD
Chattanooga at Western Kentucky | 7pm
Rice at Houston | TBD
Austin Peay at Cincinnati | TBD
Florida Atlantic at Minnesota | TBD
Oregon State at Oklahoma State | TBD
BYU at Utah | TBD
One of the best rivalry games each season is the Holy War between BYU and Utah. These two fanbases despise each other, and you can feel the animosity each time they meet in one of these games. The Utes have knocked off the Cougars nine straight times, but BYU has kept it within one score in seven of those meetings and will look to take advantage of a Utah team that lost a lot of talent from 2019.
Washington State at Utah State | TBD
Northern Arizona at Arizona State | TBD
College Football Thursday, September 17, 2020
Charlotte at Duke | TBD
UAB at Miami | TBD
The nation will get a good look at D’Eriq King in this one. King transferred in from Houston this offseason, and he is seen as a Heisman Trophy contender in 2020. Miami had a major problem with its quarterbacks last season, and the hope is that King will fix the team’s problems under center with his dual threat capability.
College Football Thursday, September 24, 2020
UCF at East Carolina | TBD
This series used to be one-sided in favor of East Carolina, but UCF has won six of the last seven meetings between these two AAC East rivals. The Knights will likely be large favorites again this season even though the game will be in Greenville as they have won each of the last four games against the Pirates by at least 13 points.
College Football Thursday, October 1, 2020
Memphis at SMU | TBD
Sonny Dykes brought SMU back to prominence for the first time since the Pony Express era last season. The Mustangs won 10 games and were ranked in the AP poll for the first time since the 1980s, and that has people in the Metroplex geared up entering this season.
College Football Thursday, October 8, 2020
Texas State at Troy | TBD
Tulane at Houston | TBD
Dana Holgorsen arrived at Houston with fanfare after going 61-41 in eight seasons at West Virginia, but the Cougars fell flat on their faces in 2019. There was an obvious rift between Holgorsen and the players, and the team effectively punted the season and finished 4-8. Holgorsen can’t afford another season like that if he wants to stay in the Lone Star State for the long term.
College Football Thursday, October 15, 2020
Georgia State at Arkansas State | TBD
Baylor at Texas Tech | TBD
Both these programs have seen their head coaches move to the NFL over the last couple years, so they are rebuilding. Texas Tech is in its second year of completely renovating its roster under Matt Wells, while Dave Aranda will keep former coach Matt Rhule’s emphasis on defense intact.
College Football Thursday, October 22, 2020
Boston College at Virginia Tech | TBD
The Eagles decided to move away from consistency and aspire for something better when they fired Steve Addazio in the offseason. Addazio could reliably get Boston College to a bowl game but nothing better in his seven-year tenure, and the program never posted a winning record in conference play under his watch. Former Ohio State co-defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley can make this team into the second-best in the ACC Atlantic with Florida State and Louisville down, but it will take time.
Louisiana-Monroe at South Alabama | TBD
College Football Thursday, October 29, 2020
Coastal Carolina at Georgia State | TBD
Kansas State at Iowa State | TBD
Former North Dakota State head coach Chris Klieman surpassed all expectations in 2019 by leading Kansas State to an 8-5 record without much talent on the roster. That has fans in Manhattan excited, and they are hoping he can do what Matt Campbell has done for Iowa State. Campbell is seen as one of the best coaches in the nation, and he has led the Cyclones from the cellar to making three straight bowl games.
Utah at UCLA | TBD
College Football Thursday, November 5, 2020
Arkansas State at Louisiana-Lafayette | TBD
Blake Anderson has been remarkably consistent during his time at Arkansas State. Anderson has taken the Red Wolves to six straight bowl games, and they have the longest bowl streak in the Sun Belt with nine straight bowl appearances. Billy Napier led the Ragin’ Cajuns to their first double-digit win season in program history in 2019, so the Red Wolves will have their hands full here.
SMU at Temple | TBD
College Football Thursday, November 12, 2020
East Carolina at Cincinnati | TBD
The Bearcats have now won 11 games in consecutive seasons, and they are the team to beat in the AAC East after supplanting UCF last season. Many expected Luke Fickell to leave during the coaching carousel last season, but he made the decision to stay and that makes Cincinnati one of the best Group of Five teams in the country.
College Football Thursday, November 19, 2020
Florida State at Syracuse | TBD
It was only natural for Syracuse to take a step back after its momentous 2018 season, but not many expected the Orange to completely miss out on a bowl game. This team is expected to bounce back in 2020, and this could be the game that ensures Syracuse returns to the postseason.
College Football Thursday, November 26, 2020
Mississippi State at Ole Miss | TBD
The Egg Bowl has given us so much joy over the years, but this year’s contest could be the best ever given the coaches involved. Lane Kiffin and Mike Leach are two of the most entertaining coaches in the sport, and the buildup for this game will be fantastic.
