    What happened to Thursday night college football?

    It wasn't all that long ago that there were some good games played on Thursdays. This week there isn't even one (unless I missed something). Now the best games mostly get crammed altogether on Saturday around the same time.

    I'm a huge College football fan and self-described decent gambler (), but I may be OK going to the SFHS freshman games on Thursday nights with that lineup!!!

    It’s pitiful. Wagner, Robert Morris, Gardner-Webb ... c’mon. Anyone know the mascot of these teams without looking them up?

    I’ll watch the pros on Thursday nights this year.

    I used to look forward to the Thursday night game, but that schedule is horrible. The only one worth watching will be the Egg Bowl Thanksgiving night. Did the NCAA get in cahoots with the NFL and promise to only schedule crud games so everyone will watch the NFL?

    This week- 12 Sept- the pros are playing on Thursday. Maybe that's why no college.

    Short answer the NFL wanted a game that night.

    Many MAC teams still play them.

    I think the ACC network and ESPN+ took a lot of them, like Clemson's game to start the season.

    If I had to guess, the answer is along these lines.

    Intentional or not, it happened because the bigger names that agreed to Thursday games 10+ years ago realized the ramifications of NFL games being played on Thursday night.
