Note: I am updating this page with new pictures, but the links and directions are updated already, and they work now. If you see a picture showing something about 2016 don’t worry, these instructions work for the 2018 season too.
ESPN.com provides schedules for the 2018 college football season and you can add them 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. ESPN does not make the schedules easy to find, but this article provides the links you need.
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.
Step 4: finish adding the calendar to your Mac or iPhone
After tapping “Subscribe” on a Mac you’ll see something like this:
Click “Subscribe” and you’ll then see 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.
