There are three more games on deck this holiday weekend.

NCAA Football: Mississippi at Texas A&M Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The inaugural week of college football rolls on today and tomorrow, with two contests on Sunday and one on Monday to round out the opening Labor Day weekend slate of games.

Two of the future foes on the Gators’ SEC slate take the field for the first time in the next two days. Texas A&M opens with UCLA tonight, and Tennessee begins their season with Georgia Tech tomorrow. The third remaining game of the weekend is between West Virginia and Virginia Tech.

Feel free to hang out in this thread while watching any of today or tomorrow’s games.

Sunday, September 3

Texas A&M at UCLA (7:30 p.m., FOX): These two teams met to start the season last year, in a much ballyhooed opener - which the Aggies narrowly won in overtime. However, both would go on to suffer disappointing seasons. The Bruins only went 4-8, and Texas A&M started hot, as they have of late, but faded down the stretch. Both teams have coaches who can be considered on the hot seat and could be feeling pressure to pull this one out.

West Virginia vs. Virginia Tech (7:30 p.m., ABC): The first meeting between these two teams since 2005 is being played at FedEx Field in Maryland. Both teams are coming off of ten-win campaigns, and have new starters under center. Florida fans surely won’t drown themselves in self-pity if Will Grier plays well in this one, right?

Monday, September 4

Tennessee vs. Georgia Tech (8:00 p.m., ESPN): This game is taking place in the brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia - which was the site of another SEC-ACC contest on Saturday between Alabama and Florida State. Like the game between West Virginia and Virginia Tech, both of these teams picked up the same number of wins last season (nine) and both will be breaking in new starting quarterbacks.

And here’s your schedule tables for the remainder of this weekend’s games.
