I was just curious what games across all levels of college football everyone plans to attend during the 2017 season.

Here's my personal, planned schedule (all times Eastern):

DEFINITE/LIKELY GAMES
09/09 (Sat): Villanova at Temple, 3:30 PM
09/23 (Sat): Penn at Lehigh, 12:30 PM (dependent on family visit; visit could also occur weekend of 9/16 & 9/17)
09/23 (Sat): Princeton at Lafayette, 6:00 PM (dependent on family visit; visit could also occur weekend of 9/16 & 9/17)
09/30 (Sat): Villanova at Towson, 6:00 PM
10/07 (Sat): Temple at East Carolina, time TBA
10/28 (Sat): Lehigh at Fordham, 1:00 PM (this game is more a strong possibility than likely)
11/04 (Sat): Lafayette at Georgetown, 2:00 PM
11/11 (Sat): Indiana (PA) at Bloomsburg, 1:00 PM (this is the most likely of five possible games that day)
11/23 (Thu): Mississippi at Mississippi State, 7:30 PM
11/25 (Sat): Texas-El Paso at Alabama-Birmingham (dependent on exact dates when I visit my brother at Mississippi State; ECU/Memphis also possible)

OTHER POSSIBLE GAMES
09/16 (Sat): Yale at Lehigh, 12:30 PM (becomes very likely if I visit family this weekend instead of weekend of 9/23 & 9/24)
09/16 (Sat): Mercyhurst at East Stroudsburg, 6:00 PM (becomes more likely if I visit family this weekend instead of weekend of 9/23 & 9/24)
09/30 (Sat): Houston at Temple, time TBA (will probably attend if game is at 12 PM ET; chance game could also replace 10/7 Temple/ECU game)
11/11 (Sat): Holy Cross at Lehigh, 12:30 PM (one of five game options that day)
11/11 (Sat): California (PA) at East Stroudsburg, 12:00 PM (one of five game options that day)
11/11 (Sat): Colgate at Lafayette, 12:30 PM (one of five game options that day)
11/11 (Sat): Moravian at Muhlenberg, 1:00 PM (one of five game options that day)
11/18 (Sat): Mercer at Alabama, time TBA (dependent on exact dates when I visit my brother at Mississippi State; very slim chance)
11/25 (Sat): East Carolina at Memphis, time TBA (dependent on exact dates when I visit my brother at Mississippi State)

In addition to the above college games, I plan to attend at least four Philadelphia Eagles NFL games (9/10 at Washington, 11/5 vs Denver, 12/10 at L.A. Rams, and 12/17 at N.Y. Giants).

So which college football games do you plan to attend during the 2017 season?

Now that we're near the end of the season (I'm not attending any of the meaningless bowl games), I can say which games I attended during the 2017 season. Those games are bolded below.

11/04 (Sat): Lafayette at Georgetown, 2:00 PM
11/11 (Sat): Indiana (PA) at Bloomsburg, 1:00 PM (this game did not occur due to IUP winning its division but Bloomsburg not winning its division)
11/23 (Thu): Mississippi at Mississippi State, 7:30 PM
11/25 (Sat): Texas-El Paso at Alabama-Birmingham, time TBA (I ended up traveling to Mississippi from 11/18 to 11/24)

OTHER POSSIBLE GAMES
09/16 (Sat): Yale at Lehigh, 12:30 PM
09/16 (Sat): Mercyhurst at East Stroudsburg, 6:00 PM

11/11 (Sat): Moravian at Muhlenberg, 1:00 PM
11/18 (Sat): Mercer at Alabama, time TBA (this game ended up being too early in the day for me to attend, based on when I arrived in Mississippi on 11/18)
11/25 (Sat): East Carolina at Memphis, time TBA

In addition to the above college games, I plan to attend at least four Philadelphia Eagles NFL games (9/10 at Washington, 11/5 vs Denver, 12/10 at L.A. Rams, and 12/17 at N.Y. Giants). I will also attend the 12/31 game vs Dallas.

So which college football games do you plan to attend during the 2017 season?
