The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic, featuring Florida State and Alabama on Sept. 2 (8 p.m. ET, ESPN) in Atlanta, highlights an otherwise Big Ten-heavy Week 1 schedule, which was released on Thursday by ESPN. The five-day, televised schedule begins on Aug. 31 and continues through Labor Day.

FSU and Alabama are early favorites to contend for the College Football Playoff, which is entering its fourth year, and they will play in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which will also host the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship game (Jan. 8 on ESPN).

While FSU and Bama will garner the most national attention on opening week, the season officially begins Aug. 31, when Indiana hosts 2016 playoff semifinalist Ohio State (8 p.m. ET, ESPN). Clemson, the defending national champ, opens the season at home against Kent State on Sept. 2 (12 p.m. ET, ESPN).

The Big Ten was one of the playoff's biggest storylines last year, as conference champion Penn State was left out of the selection committee's top four in spite of beating the Buckeyes head-to-head. The Nittany Lions open their season Sept. 2 at home against Akron (12 p.m. ET, ESPN), but the bigger Week 1 game that day featuring a Big Ten team is Michigan at Florida in the AdvoCare Classic in Arlington, Texas (3:30 p.m., ABC). Wisconsin will host Utah State on Friday, Sept. 1 (9 p.m. ET, ESPN).

West Virginia and Virginia Tech will renew their old Big East rivalry on Sunday, Sept. 3, in Landover, Maryland, (7:30 p.m., ABC), and Tennessee and Georgia Tech will punctuate Week 1 on Labor Day in Atlanta (8 p.m. ET, ESPN).

Oklahoma at Ohio State (Sept. 9 at 7:30 p.m. on ABC) will highlight Week 2 in a game that will have major playoff implications. It's only the fourth time the programs have met, with Ohio State winning the last two games, including last season, when they handed the Sooners their second loss of the season and instantly made them a long shot for the CFP. This will be OU's first trip to Columbus in 40 years, when the Sooners beat Ohio State 29-28.

The prime-time game in Week 3, on Sept. 16, will feature longtime rivals Florida State and Miami (8 p.m. ET, ABC).

Three Illinois[1] football players arrested on charges of residential burglary and aggravated robbery were dismissed from the program Wednesday.

Head coach Lovie Smith said Darta Lee[2], Zarrian Holcombe[3] and Howard Watkins[4] were no longer a part of the team. Their names have been removed from the school's online roster.

Lee, Holcombe and Watkins claim they were pulling a prank on another student in their on-campus dormitory when they allegedly donned masks and used a fake gun before breaking into the room[5] two weeks ago, according to a report in the Champaign News-Gazette. The paper said all three players remained in jail Wednesday evening with $150,000 bonds.

Smith announced that all three players were suspended soon after the incident and released a short statement.

"These allegations, if true, fail to live up to the standards we expect of our student-athletes," the statement said. "We continue to gather information and will take appropriate steps based upon what we learn."

Lee was an offensive lineman for the Illini who started two games and played in four others during his first season in Champaign in 2017. Holcombe, a tight end, played in seven games as a freshman last fall. Watkins arrived on campus in January as an early enrollee and intended to play on the offensive line.

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- The Air Force Academy said wide receiver Jalen Robinette[1] didn't graduate with his class after the cadet's qualifications were called into question.

The ceremony took place Wednesday, but Robinette's graduation and commissioning were held up for further evaluation, the academy said in a statement. The academy said the decision didn't involve criminal wrongdoing and was unrelated to Robinette's pro football pursuits.

Robinette was the NCAA's leader in yards per catch last season and was expected to be a mid-round selection in the recent NFL draft. But the Defense Department rescinded its 2016 policy allowing military service academy athletes to go straight to the pros upon graduation.

The change began with this year's class and affected Robinette, who went undrafted after the policy reversal.
