There are several games that could be put on week 0 this year: Hawaii all the MWC teams that play Hawaii and the 5 teams that play Hawaii OOC.
Why not beat ESPIN and own that week starting off the season with the first “game day”?
Great idea IMHO.
Week 0 games scheduled so far (Saturday, August 29)
Cal @ UNLV (Big Fox)
Hawaii @ Arizona (Big Fox)
Idaho St @ New Mexico (FS1 or CBSSN)
UC Davis @ Nevada (FS1 or CBSSN)
ESPN will probably get another exemption for a week 0 gme like Miami/Florida last year and beat the crap out of it.
Other possible week 0 games (Hawaii opponents)
UCLA
Fordham
Oregon
New Mexico St
Air Force
Fresno St
Boise St
Nevada
San Diego St
San Jose St
Tangentially, how soon will we see the current Week 0 with restrictions become the new Week 1 for anyone that wants to play a week earlier? I put the over/under at 5 years. It’s an additional full week of games for TV revenue purposes, Northern teams can shift a game that would have been played in cold weather November to a nice summer weather August date, and there’s an argument that it’s better for player health to have an additional bye week during the year, too. It’s basically all win-win.

I'd totally take the under. Probably within 2-3 years IMO.

And that’s huge for attendance. August night games sell themselves. Conversely, many people opt for the tv on frigid November Saturday’s.
Both Boise and UCLA play at Hawaii this year so....
Boise vs UCLA on FOX primtime In week 0!
Make it happen FOX
Both Diego St and Oregon both get the Hawaii exception
Oregon at San Diego St Week 0 on Big FOX
Air Force vs Fresno St on CBS OTA in week 0
New Mexico vs Idaho St on FS1 or CBSN on week 0
Nevada vs UC Davis on FS1 or CBSSN on week o
San Jose st vs New Mexico St on CBSSN or FS1 on week 0

It would be a good idea but Game Day will be in Dublin that day for the Navy/Notre Dame game. (Link)

EDIT: BTW, whereas Navy & ND needed a waiver to play in week 0, if a joint proposal from the AAC, ACC & Pac 12 succeeds, future teams that play a regular season game in a foreign country may, as a matter of course, play their first game in week 0. (Link)

Navy vs ND will be on either NBC or CBS though correct?
Does ESPN have the rights to any Week 0 games scheduled?
Notre Dame vs. Navy in Ireland will be on ESPN. ESPN acquired the rights to Navy's "home" games vs. ND as part of ESPN's AAC contract.

That could delay the inevitable as far as week 0 is concerned (I agree with Frank - it will eventually just become the new week 1). I wonder if this rule proposal passes, will we see more games played in exotic locations? Ohio State vs. Indiana from the Bahamas?

Also, does Canada count? If so, why not a Michigan game in Toronto or a Wisconsin game in Edmonton? Some driveable stadiums just across the border...

More like Minnesota -NDState in Winnipeg.
Edmonton is a straight shot 10 hours north of...the Montana Grizzlies.

Ugh ... I hope not.

The weekend before Labor Day weekend .... it is still SUMMER. Time to be spent on the lake, or the BBQ, or hiking, or the beach, or the fair, or shooting off leftover fireworks, or whatever summer things folk like to do.

Summer is short enough as is in the North. For every time there is a season. And football season starts Labor Day weekend. I absolutely do not want to see it start prior.

OK, bad call on Edmonton.

Seriously, billybobby, you must not pay much attention to AAC games vs contract-bowl-conference teams.
