The huge college event will commence sooner, and all fans are waiting for the event to start. The National Collegiate Athletic Association division presents its Football Bowl Subdivision for college athletes later this year. All fans and students are all ears with all the events that will take place. If you are planning to keep track of all the bowls for the 2022 NCAA FBS, here are the following things that you must know.

2022 NCAA Division I FBS Season

The 2022 NCAA Division | Football is the 153rd season of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in the United States. Its Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) is one of the most anticipated games organized by the NCAA, which also has the highest level of competition among all others.

Over 131 teams are participating this year, with 44 scheduled bowl games. Four schools will be joining the Sun Belt Conference this season, and one of which is the James Madison Dukes Football, who came from the Division I FCS, will be having their first FBS season this year.

The three remaining teams came from C-USA, namely Marshall Thundering Herd, Old Dominion Monarchs, and Southern Miss Golden Eagles. Although the C-USA has claimed that the three teams will be with them through the 2022-2023 school year, it seems that all disputes have been settled, and they are up to go to the Sun Belt Conference.

The regular season for the 2022 NCAA Division I FBS season will start on August 27 and end on December 10, 2022.


To explain the FBS schedule, most teams will need to play 12 regular-season games annually, and eight or nine of these matches are against the rivaling conference.

Moreover, only four colleges are eligible to play in the two semifinal games during a postseason. After that, the winners from each match will proceed to the College Football Playoff National Champion game, which determines the national champion for the NCAA Division I FBS.

In the meantime, here are the teams that will meet on August 27 for the Week 0 of the season:

Nebraska vs. Northwestern (Aviva Stadium, Dublin, Ireland)

Vanderbilt at Hawaii (Clarence T.C. Athletics Complex, Honolulu)

Uconn at Utah States (Maverik Stadium, Logan)

Wyoming at Illinois (Memorial Stadium, Champaign)

Austin Peay at WKU (Houchens Industry - L.T. Smith Stadium, )

Nevada at New Mexico State (Aggie Memorial Stadium, Las Cruces)

Duquesne at Florida State (Doak Campbell Stadium, Tallahassee, Florida)

Florida A&M at North Carolina (Kenan Stadium, Chapel Hill)

Charlotte at Florida Atlantic (FAU Stadium, Boca Raton)

North Texas at UTEP (Sun Bowl, El Paso)

On the other hand, the odds for week 0 are still not available for future bets. However, you can look forward to the odds being released from your favorite sportsbook.

How To Bet For NCAA Division I FBS Subdivision Online?

Moreover, betting for the NCAA Division I FBS Subdivision is almost the same as how you would bet for the NFL spreads. The only difference would be that not all sportsbooks accept wagers for the college football league. Aside from that, you can still enjoy putting a bet on your favorite college team.


Online sportsbooks will be presenting the odds for all college teams. To heighten up the bets, you are required to bet on the team that has the chance to overcome their odds. So if you bet on a team with -10 odds, they must create a ten-point difference over their opponents so that you win and can payout.


On the other hand, to bet on the money line, you must pick a team with the best chance of winning. The Moneyline is different from spread betting because, with this type of bet, you will need to choose a winning team to payout. If not, you lose your bet completely.


Your online sportsbook will present a number to all its bettors for this type of bet. You will need to predict whether the total combined score of both teams will end up higher or lower than their set number.

For instance, the sportsbook presented 30 scores from both teams, and you bet that the result will be over 30, then the game ended with 35 scores. Since 35 is higher than 30, then you win.


The future bets for college football are the type of wager that requires you to vote on an event in due time. This type of bet is usually made before the season officially starts. For the NCAA FBS, future bets are generally for the College Football Playoff, Bowl Games, National Championship matches, and the Heisman Trophy.
