At long last I’ve found schedules for the 2016 college football season that you can add to your Mac, iPhone, and iPad. You can also add these schedules to your PC and Android phone, if that’s the way you want it. The schedules come to us courtesy of ESPN, but they sure don’t make them easy to find. Fortunately, I’ve done the work for you so all you have to do is read this article.

Note: if all you want is a website with all of the college football games, and times, and TV channels, use this link. Very handy to have the TV stations listed.

Step 1: go to ESPN’s college football calendar page. The link knows whether you’re using a computer or a phone:

Step 2: find the conference you’re interested in (yes, you need to know the conference).

Step 3: enter your zip code and TV provider, then choose a team from the list. The calendar will show game times in your time zone, and TV channels for your TV.

After tapping “Subscribe” on a Mac you’ll see something like this:

Choose a color for the calendar, tell it to update daily, and decide whether you want notifications or not. You can change these things later so feel free to experiment.

If you add a calendar on your Mac, and you choose the iCloud option, the calendar will also be available on your iPhone. It does not work the other way– if you add it on your iPhone first, you will also have to add it on your Mac.

On an iPhone you’ll get a couple of messages about confirming your selection. If you choose “View Events” in the second message you’ll see something like this on your iPhone:

Tap an event and you’ll see the TV channel to watch it on.
