An early look at the ESPN/ABC schedule

Here's an early look at the 2010 college football schedule for ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN Classic and ESPN360.

The schedule will be updated throughout the season, so keep checking back in the spring, summer and fall as games are added.

Of note in the SEC, South Carolina will kick off the season on Thursday night for the third straight year and will face Southern Miss at home on Sept. 2 on ESPN.

That next Thursday, Auburn and Mississippi State will open the SEC season against each other in a 7:30 p.m. ET game in Starkville that will be televised by ESPN.
